    You've got something wrong in the model number. I'll assume you're talking about the MOTU 24i.

    It's what I use. No complaints from me. Some folks with some non-Intel chipsets have had troubles with MOTU hardware, but it isn't a universal thing. I've had mine in several computers, one of them a VIA-based motherboard and have not had troubles.

    The older MOTU converters are reportedly not the best - until I get something better I will not be able to comment on that aspect of the unit.

    I have been able to record 24 tracks (in a test setup) for hours at a time with no glitches or synch problems. I also use it for multitrack sessions and have no latency issues.
