I read (after the fact) about getting some card that has the TI chipset on it. I have a Motu 828Mk II from my buddy and had to find a 3rd party FW driver to get it to be able to load the 3 options under the MOTU menu and that was goodness. Then I hit an issue dropping samples from 256 to 192 (it stuck/held in Live 8.1.x) and was able to reproduce it (and abes were able to as well so now waiting to see when MOTU gets off their duff and resolves that issue). It wasn't a big deal to me but could reproduce it in Vista 64 Ultimate AND XP Pro SP3. Anyways, I bought it from my buddy cuzz he wanted to get something newer (at some point) and it has 8 ins/10 outs and is enough for me. I was looking at the Ultralite but saw a bunch of issues via searching.
I hear RME makes good stuff, but is a bit of a premium. I am just glad the ABes (Ableton) were able to reproduce my issue and are working with MOTU on a resolution. It crashed Live BUT on a reload it was set to the lower value. Going up was ok, only when I lowered the samples did it crash. Then again, quality from any mfr is debatible no?
Just my $0.02 cents.
