MOTU M2 2-in/2-out USB-C Audio Interface

The M2 stands as a versatile USB-C audio interface with 2 inputs and 2 outputs, designed for compatibility with Mac, Windows, and iOS systems. This interface excels in providing top-notch audio quality, incredibly fast speed with minimal delay, and superior metering through its vivid full-color LCD display. Whether you're aiming to swiftly capture vocals, instruments, or any audio source, the M2 simplifies the process.

Included in the package are MOTU Performer Lite and Ableton Live Lite production software, boasting a collection of over 100 instruments, numerous plugins, and a library of loops and samples exceeding 6 GB. This comprehensive setup empowers you to dive into music production without delay.

Among its standout attributes are two combo inputs that accommodate microphones, line-level, or hi-Z instrument connections. Each input enjoys individual preamp gain adjustment as well as 48V phantom power. The M2 facilitates seamless hardware monitoring at the touch of a button, supports stereo monitoring, and features both balanced 1/4-inch DC-coupled outputs and unbalanced RCA outputs in a mirrored configuration.

For headphones, the interface incorporates an ESS-powered output with its own volume control, ensuring high-quality audio delivery. Additional functionalities encompass MIDI input and output, specialized driver "loopback" channels for activities like live-streaming and podcasting, and the convenience of USB bus power that includes a power switch. This package comes complete with a USB cable to get you started right away.

Best-in-class audio quality
Equipped with the same ESS Sabre32 Ultra™ DAC Technology found in audio interfaces costing thousands, the M2 delivers an astonishing 120 dB Dynamic Range on its main outputs. ESS converters also drive the headphone output, which rivals dedicated headphone amplifiers costing hundreds. Ultra-clean preamp circuits produce a measured -129 dBu EIN on the mic inputs. Capture and monitor your audio with pristine clarity.

Best-in-class speed
The M2 provides best-in-class speed for monitoring live inputs (mic, guitar or keyboard) through your computer, thanks to MOTU's expertly engineered USB drivers, which deliver class-leading, ultra-low 2.5 ms Round Trip Latency (32 sample buffer at 96 kHz).

Best-in-class metering
When recording and mixing, nothing is more critical than achieving optimum levels. The M2 is the only audio interface in its class with a full color 160x120 pixel LCD featuring clear, detailed level meters for all inputs and outputs. Enjoy professional-level volume control and feedback to get your sound just right.

Loopback for live streaming and podcasting
The M2 driver provides convenient loopback channels to your host computer, so you can easily route computer output back to the computer, where you can mix it with live mics and/or guitar inputs from the M2 in your host software for live streaming or podcasting. Streaming and podcasting has never been easier and better-sounding!

Performer Lite provides everything you need to record, edit, mix, process and master your own music tracks quickly and easily. Plug in your mic, guitar and MIDI keyboard and start tracking with over 100 instruments, dozens of effects plug-ins, guitar FX processing and much more.

Live 10 Lite is a lightweight version of Ableton Live 10. It comes with all of Live’s essential workflows, instruments and effects – everything you need to record songs, create hands-on with your controller, take music made in your apps further and so much more.

100+ Instruments
Performer Lite includes over 100 instruments, including acoustic and electric pianos, guitars, basses, drums, organs, synths, orchestral instruments, choirs, world instruments and much more. Take your musical muse wherever it wants to go.

Stand-alone operation
With a standard USB-C power adapter, the M2 can be used as a stand-alone preamp and basic mixer, with no host computer required. Simply engage the monitor button for each input (and 48V phantom power, if needed) and adjust the preamp gain as needed. Connect the main outs to any line level destination, such as a PA or patch bay.
