awsome effects

By sw80, 12/11/2012
The UltraLite MK3 Hybrid is a 10 input and 14 output interface that connects to your computer through a USB cable or you can connect it to you computer through a firewire port if you PC or Mac has one. It has 2 very good preamps and has some on unit effects as well. The price is very affordable for all that this interface comes with. The UltraLite MK3 has a screen display on it, it is not a full color screen though. The screen display is great for choosing your effects and tweaking those effects to the desired amount you wish to use.

UTILIZATION

You can use this interface with either a Mac or a PC depending on which OS you are using. You will get very low latency recordings with this interface and you can also use it for the effects in a standalone mode. I have used this interface for both recording and for effects, the first time that I used it was last fall. I wanted to purchase it immediately after using it for the first time.

GETTING STARTED

It is simple to set up, and you can use it in almost any DAW that you choose. Both of the microphone amps have phantom power built in for your condenser microphones. You will have no issues installing the drivers on your computer, it is a plug and play type of interface. The MK3 is also built to last you a long time, it is built with some sort of a protective casting around it that will stand up strong if you happen to knock it off the desk or drop it. Because it can not be racked this is something to take into consideration when looking for an interface.

OVERALL OPINION

The MK3 has about 12 digital mixer effects that you have right at your finger tips. Even if you choose to not use this as your main interface you will still have some great effects that you can use stand alone.

Very good card

By MonEX, 05/08/2014
with MacPro and Yamaha HS 50, Minitaur Moog Kawai Keyboard, USB (with power supply) or firewire, and reputed brand recommended by professionals colleagues

UTILIZATION

No problem, except sometimes you have to restart the card on my MacPro, which does not recognize the boot

Maschine 2.0 and Ableton Live

GETTING STARTED

Easy to use via CueMix, control over the card is also a bit tedious but it will, the manual is quite comprehensive but insufficient

OVERALL OPINION

last year

I am very pleased with this card

I do not use too integrated Reverb or the EQing, the compressor and yes I find it ok, but do not expect very good on this side the

Satisfactory

By Farben, 04/12/2014
I chose this interface for its excellent quality / price.

For a compact interface, it still has a number of inputs / outputs more than satisfactory and a lot of options are available. Note the ability to mount the 192KHz sampling.

I tested the firewire and USB. No differences of course but gained consciousness I would recommend firewire.
I use it mainly for listening, sound editing and occasionally Foley on Adam A5X.
It has happened to me to use it to record the stereo analog output table in a classical recording.

USE

I would note a few stability problems. Is not at all a computer whiz, I do not know what is the fact that, listen, this interface abruptly stops sending sound. I just need to restart the file to get everything in order, but it is a difficult problem ...

I use many Pro Tools and Ableton. Who had never worked on large sessions, I have not yet seen the limits of the number of lanes. The recording quality is correct without being exceptional ...

The updates do not seem very common and has high latency but at that price, I do not expect much better.

CueMix FX software, however, is very pleasant to use and has many useful tools to analyze a mix.
The reverb embraquée is a great selling point for this interface. However, I use reverb convolusions and find them obviously superior to it. From an algorithmic point of view, I'm more a fan of the Lexicon and TC reverb that this will probably satisfy a musician but not a sound editor.

Level preamp, we are in an amateur but good registry for what it is. With little budget, I usually used with a NT2A Rode for voices and sound effects. The couple works well but sounds a little cold ...

IMPLEMENTATION

Simple Installation and use.

Just plug and install the software and everything goes.

You just get used to press the knobs to access other functions of the card. Ultimately, not even need to read the manual.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it for 3 years and I have to say that despite some reservations about the stability of the beast, I'm pretty satisfied.

I find it superior to the MBox.

I especially like its modularity, the large number of inputs / outputs, good recording quality for the price and the CueMix FX software rather comprehensive and user-friendly as far as manipulating the mouse is not disconcerting.

For 500 €, I think it's proper case, but which calls for a future purchase more efficient as far as we seek something higher course.

I think I would do this choice if I was in the same financial conditions and with the same level of incompetence at the time of my purchase.
I think it fulfills its role card aspiring sound engineer but a greater mastery of the sound world calls for quick switching interfaces.

I intend to keep it and use it as analog / digital converter with a direct outs Revox table for a mobile control for the classic.
