Actual item review potsed on Amazon: I think the MOTU Traveler is just what I needed. After years of having bad audio interfaces at the bars, and nightclubs, I figured I would just have to settle with nothing but my own built in manual interface to please my firewire needs. Then I found this wonderful item, and skeptical as I was, I decided to try it out. Upon it's first use, I was immediately overwhelmed by the quality and durability of this interface. The only thing I could think of that would be bad is that I didn't buy two. Unfortunately, I don't have this wonderful item anymore. I accidentally the whole thing yesterday. Priceless.

You should ccoatnt to MOTU support. Maybe they will tell you how to fix it or you will get new one. Also try to play with sample rate and buffer size in driver, maybe this will help.If you just bought it, probably you still can send it back and get all moneys back. Don't worry, be happy ,and you can always use that bleep noise as new sample You are not alone with audio interface problems.For example I still use my old Behringer BCA2000 , and yes it works on windows 7 32bit with WDM and ASIO drivers.This audio interface don't never worked correctly with original drivers from behringer CD, even more. 50% of that behringers was sold as damaged units. Now behringer don't even sell them or support, and I will never have chance to use it with 64bit OS. But I still love my BCA2000 together with BCR2000.Good luck.

I've been using this unit for 3 years and 'rock solid' just does not apply. Freezes all the time, even in standalone mode. Support is the most ridiculous. When it works, it sounds great though!

I have owned a few other audio interfaces in the past, namely a M-audio Delta 1010 and an original 828. I have to say that the MKII is a marked step up from the original 828. The original was a real nightmare to set up and keep working where as the MKII was basically plug and play with my PC. The stand alone mixer functions on this card are dreamy and the user interface is exeptionally good (although it would have been nice to have colored knobs to make it easier to locate the corect knob in a hurry...). It is the perfect interface for anyone with a project studio that harware/software based. I use it in my electronic dance music project studio and it is great having so many I/O options and the mixer functions in such a small footprint. The sound is clear and natural and the digital ins and out sound terrific IMO. I read people complaining that this card sounds thin, but I think it just has a tight, nuetral sound. Remember Sh!t in, Sh!t out! I would recommewnd this interface to anyone looking for a good mid-priced Firewire interface and a small mixer. Kill 2 birds with one stone.

First I was using a Yamaha V01 with ADAT interface hooked up with a RME card inside mine Mac. This has a good sound but was not users frienly. With this MOTU every thing changes. The sound is FAT and it worked in one time. It is so easy and good. And without the Mac it is still a mixer. I will buy one more...
