Wonderful Product

See all my reviews

I've had my Traveler for over 3 years now, and I have found it to be very reliable. I purchased it for my home studio, and it's been used for countless projects without a hitch. The only issue I ever had was with it receiving inconsistent bus power when I got a new computer, but MOTU sent me a wall adapter for the unit (I think Travelers now come standard with one) and it's been trouble-free ever since. I could have used more explicit documentation in the manual for the included CueMix software, but the unit itself is very sturdy and it sounds great. It has a great balance of lots of inputs and outputs (so my whole studio can go through it) with multiple mic pres (so my whole band can record at once). I love my Traveler and I would certainly recommend it to I've upgraded my whole studio, the Traveler has remained relevant and excellent.

I've owned my Traveler for over a year now. It's extremely flexible. I use it to mix all audio to and from my computer, as well as my home stereo, all at the same time (using 2 mix busses, very nice). The offline operation is great, no need to boot up a laptop to use. That said, the drivers have been great. Super good job on this MOTU people!


I love it

I've had mine for about a year now, and haven't been disappointed by it yet. It's got decent pre's for the price, and intensely high quality a to d conversion. I use it with Logic and they play very nicely together.


Pc Recorder

Holy shit. So I have been recording via M Audio's 1010LT and thats not so bad for the buck. Problems are protablilty, expansio, and features. I purchased a Traveler, bus powered, exponential expansion, and all the featured I could ask for. The mic pre's are great, without any channel strips or tube pres it sound great. Take this and a Joe Meek and you've got professional grade.


Good Deal

By Jordan J. Nicometo

I have owned this product for almost year. I have had 0 problems with it. Motu tech support is outstanding (they answered any question I had about the Traveler). One of the travelers downfall is it only has 4 mic pre-amps however there are ways around it. I recently bought the Behringer ADA 8000 (ADAT) and extended my pre-amped imputs to 12. The traveler is very easy to use. I use it wil Logic Express and Audio Desk which came with it. One major downfall with Logic Express and any ADAT unit, Logic Express will only display the motus 1st 12 inputs.

I bought my Traveler 3 years ago, and it never fails! simply the best, the sound quality is excelent, the only thing that could give it a plus would be an internal compressor... (like the new mk3)
