OT: Motu 828 Mk II Latency


    Jan 14 2006 | 4:50 am
    hi,
    off topic : i'm thinking about an interface for a macbook in february. since i've already got an RME octamic, the digiface would have been best, but since there's no cardbus, it has to be firewire or USB i guess. does someone know how the Motu 828 Mk II performs latency wise ; is it "faster" or "slower" than a Fireware, and is there a performance difference between the firewire and USB version ? how do firewire and USB compare a) latency-wise, b) CPU-load wise ?
    best, -sciss-

      As you're on the RME waggon already I guess the fireface from RME will give you what you need. Though the Macbook will have only firewire 400, you'd still be fast enough and get 12 Mic inputs of the same quality and sound.
      Just an idea...
