Motu Ultralite Review and Info

Mark of the Unicorn (MOTU) UltraLite 10x14 FireWire Interface with MIDI

The UltraLite bus-powered FireWire audio interface delivers everything you need to turn your laptop or desktop Mac or PC into a mobile 24-bit, 96kHz recording studio with 10 inputs and 14 outputs. And because it's bus-powered, the UltraLite gives you the ultimate freedom to make music anywhere, anytime.

Manufacturer: Mark of the Unicorn (MOTU)

Tweak's Notes:
Great choice for a Mac, including the newer Macs with Intel processors.  MOTU follows the Apple protocols carefully and has a history of having their drivers ready right when Apple makes a change of OS.
 
Perhaps the only limitation of the Ultralite, compared to its bigger brothers, is the lack of ADAT i/o.  But not everyone needs that.

As you see from the close up of the back you get plenty of analog i/o and s/pdif.  You have enough outputs to add a mixer or create sends in your software to FX boxes or other hardware processors.
