Today I got to unbox the Motu M4, audio interface, and I had to figure out how to hook it up to Cubase 12 professional which took some time. ￼ This audio interface is quite different from the Yamaha AG06. ￼ In order to get the MOTU M4 to the work with My workflow in Cubase 12 professional, I had to create three presets and save for future projects in the studio - audio screen. ￼ Other photos can be viewed on my Facebook group page for “old school arrangers”
My workflow consists of the Neumann, TLM 103 microphone, and the Yamaha Genos arranger￼.
When creating midi tracks￼ from Genos I always record the midi an audio for that track together in Cubase 12. This requires an Audio preset.
￼ When I want to create a track for, let’s say “bells” as an audio track, that requires another preset
￼ Finally, when I want to record the Neumann, TLM 103 microphone it must be set up as a mono track in cubase 12. The output can be set to stereo, but it is still a mono displayed track.
So far, I am very pleased with the quality of music￼ from the digital to analog converters in the Motu M4
￼ as far as the Neumann, TLM 103 Microphone goes. It is a very good match in bringing out the quality of the vocals. ￼ I find that the vocal midrange frequencies are really cleaned up using the Motu M4.
