M-audio 410 vs MOTU Ultralite

I'm in the process of upgrading my desktop's interface to a MOTU Ultralite from an M-audio 410... is it worth it? will I notice a difference in sound or should I wait and save up for an RME or something?

Any info would be appreciated...

The jump from the M-Audio to the MOTU UltraLite won't be significant of enough of a sonic change for you to go through the trouble. I recommend you save your pennies and get an interface that will give you a serious boost in quality.

don't do it if you have a PC, I did it from 1814 to traveler (beacuse of the 2 more mic preamps... how stupid...), and all I have now is a sometimes stable working system. The M audio drivers were in fact better working...

If it was not for the cue mix feature, which I use for independent monitoring of my HD recorder, I would have sold it...

now I own two audient asp 008 and do not need the mic amps, and I do not need y computer for mobile recording, where I need to rely on my system

I did a week long test of the RME fireface and it worked without any trouble.

Sound is one issue (and that is not so bad with M-audio in my opinion), but you get more pissed of, if the thing is not reliable wokring after a so called update

It will sound at least as good, if not better. Also, you'll be gaining several analog inputs, and they'll be BALANCED, which the 410 lacks.

Hmm, thats what I thought, I had a weird feeling about the change... I'm going to stick with the 410 afterall, at least till I can get my hands on a Fireface 800.

Thanx for the input guys
