    Can anybody give me their oppinion of the Motu 242i digital recording system. I am currently looking at purchasing one via ebay and would like to get the low down from anybody who has actually used one.

    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.
