6x4 USB Audio Interface


best in class audio quality, speed and meteringThe MOTU M6 is a USB audio interface that features the same ESS Sabre32 Ultra™ DAC Technology found in world-class audio interfaces. The M6 offers an incredible 120 dB Dynamic Range on its main outputs. ESS converters also drive the headphone outputs, which competes with dedicated headphone amplifiers of a high price bracket. Ultra-clean preamp circuits deliver a measured -129 dBu EIN on the mic inputs. Capture and monitor your audio with outstanding clarity. Years of award-winning product engineering for hit songs, mega tours, primetime shows and blockbuster movies goes into every MOTU audio interface.

Amazing Features • ESS Sabre32 Ultra™ DAC Technology for superb analogue sound
• The same converter technology used in audio interfaces costing thousands
• Measured 120 dB dynamic range on outputs
• Measured -129 dBu EIN on mic inputs
• ESS-driven headphone outputs

Enhanced Performance & Workflow


SpeedThe M6 delivers best-in-class speed for monitoring live inputs (mic, guitar or keyboard) through your computer, thanks to MOTU's expertly engineered USB drivers, which provide class-leading, ultra-low 2.5 ms Round Trip Latency (at 96 kHz with a 32 sample buffer).


MeteringWhen recording and mixing, nothing is more vital than achieving optimum levels. The M6 is the only audio interface in its class with a full colour LCD featuring clear, detailed level meters for all inputs and outputs. Experience professional-level volume control and feedback to get your sound just right.


LoopbackThe M6 driver offers convenient loopback channels to your host computer, so you can easily route computer output back to the computer, where you can mix it with up to four mics (and/or guitars) from the M6 in your host software for live streaming or podcasting. Streaming and podcasting has never sounded better or been this easy!


A/B Monitor SwitchThe M6 is the only audio interface in its class to offer A/B monitor switching. Connect two pairs of monitors and quickly check your mixes on each pair with the push of a button.


Stand-alone operationThanks to the multi-blade international DC power adapter connected, you can power the M6 when the computer is turned off (or completely disconnected from the M6). This enables you to monitor any live inputs you may have (mics, guitars, keyboards, etc.) without a host computer or iOS device needed.
