The mlan16e is a must have for anyone using the Yamaha Motif ES as the center of their digital recording studio. Once installed your Motif becomes an invaluable tool. I am currently using the mlan16e with an Intel based Mac and a Motif ES8, and it works perfectly. I use Logic 7, as well as Cubase 4, and Reason 3.0 and it provided seamless integration for all. Latency is almost non existent, and sound quality is great, just like it says, 24bit, 96khz audio. If you are a musician, looking for a way to get your Motif ES and your computer DAW communicating, so that you can record your ideas, and have them sound great this is the way to go. One of the best features is that it turns your Motif into an Audio interface allowing you to use the A/D inputs on the back of the Motif ES to record audio into your DAW from external instruments, ex. a guitar, or bass. It also makes the use of the Motif ES as a controller for your DAW much better. Meaning that if you want to use the knobs and faders on the Mofif ES to control the insert effects etc. in the DAW it works flawlessly. And also vise/versa. If you want to use the computer DAW to control and use the insert effects, on the Motif ES you can as well because you can send things back to the Motif ES just as easily as you can send them to the computer. Everything you need to know is provided in the owners manual of the Motif ES, but if that is not enough there are plenty of user friendly web sights and forums available on the enternet, ie. Trust me it works great and it sounds great too. One suggestion, is that you make sure that all of your software, and firmware ie(your Motif ES's operating system, and Mlan Tools and drivers) are updated to their most current versions, or you may encounter performance issues. Once again the mlan16e is a great tool for anyone using the Motif ES as the center of their digital recording studio.
I put this board in my ES8 with the intention of making my recording life easier, but was skeptical about how well it would work. After all, how much can one little cable do. Wow!! A whole lot. Everything works great. Took some time to figure out, but man it is worth it. Clean direct signals for midi and audio, flexible routing, monitoring, and fx processing options. Worth every penny.
