896HD and 828MKII Main Out Metering

The meters in the second generation of MOTU Firewire interfaces reflect the level going out of main outs POST volume knob. To keep your meters at a level that is consistent with what you hear in powered monitors hooked up to your main outs, we recommend that you calibrate your monitors to the main out knob:

  • Turn the trim controls on your powered monitors all the way down.
  • Then turn the monitor knob on the MOTU Firewire interface all the way.
  • Now SLOWLY turn the trim knobs up on your monitors until they reach the maximum volume you'd wish to monitor with.
