The M6 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).
When recording and mixing, nothing is more critical than achieving optimum levels. The M6 is the only audio interface in its class with a full color LCD featuring clear, detailed level meters for all inputs and outputs. Enjoy professional-level volume control and feedback to get your sound just right.
The M6 driver provides 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 been easier and better-sounding!
The 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.
With the included 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 allows you to monitor any live inputs you may have (mics, guitars, keyboards, etc.) without a host computer or iOS device needed.
Decades of award-winning product engineering for hit songs, mega tours, primetime shows and blockbuster movies goes into every MOTU audio interface.
Each input can accept either a mic or a guitar, with independent preamp gain and 48V phantom power for condenser mics.
Press the MON (monitor) button to hear live input on your speakers or headphones, without routing the signal through host software on your computer. You can even monitor with the computer turned off (and DC power connected).
Each input provides plenty of preamp gain and incredible sound quality, with -129 dB EIN.
Precisely control recording levels and monitoring volume with vivid, responsive level meters in the full-color LCD.
Solid metal construction means the rugged M6 is ready for anything you throw at it, on the go and on the road.
Two headphone outputs offer independent volume control and enough drive for even the most demanding headphones. Both mirror Monitor Out 1-2.

This headphone output can optionally mirror Line Out 3-4 with its own, completely separate computer mix.
