Get a podcast up and running in no time with the MOTU M2 2x2 USB-C Audio Interface. The beauty of the M2 is its simplicity. No complicated mixers to deal with that take up a lot of desktop space. Just a straightforward 2-Channel input box delivering crystal clear audio to your Mac or PC while giving you simple front panel gain controls and monitoring options. The unit's microphone preamps deliver a warm tone adding a professional quality sound to your vocals.
Independent Gain & 48V Phantom Power Per Channel
Even though the MOTU M2 can operate as a simple podcasting audio interface, it's also a very powerful tool for musicians. Inputs can be mic level, line level or instrument level (hi-z) and each of the channels can be supplied with 48V phantom power for condenser mics. Both inputs are TRS/XLR combo jacks which is also very handy. The unit also provides convenient loopback channels to your host computer for live streaming & podcasting. This handy feature allows you to mix your inputs with computer audio - like a background track - to stream the combined mix to Twitch or a podcasting platform in real time. There is also a MIDI I/O set on the rear to connect your MIDI keyboard or sound module.
Color LCD VU Metering
Adding a combination of critical function and eye candy appeal, Motu has added full color LCD VU metering for all inputs and outputs. It brings additional confidence that your signal is present while also making sure you're at the correct levels.
Best in class audio Auality
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 (at 96 kHz with a 32 sample buffer).
Connect the M2 to your Mac or PC and start laying down tracks with the included Motu Performer Lite or Ableton Live Lite production software, plus hundreds of loops, one-shots and sounds from industry leaders Big Fish Audio, Lucidsamples and Loopmasters.
Ride the Bus
Adding to the M2's portability package, Motu made it bus-powered from the USB port. This makes it a great option for live play-by-play sports broadcasters where all you need is a laptop and an internet connection.
