This has got to be my favorite piece of gear in the world. I don't often go write reviews unless I have a problem with something, but I felt I needed to give a standing ovation to the folks over at Focusrite for this one. This thing handles low end like a champ, and is as clear as a bell. If you choose not to use Ableton as your main DAW, you may experience some difficulty getting everything going for the first time, but a couple minutes of tinkering will get you on your feet and it will be 100% worth your time. I've used some of the larger Scarlett interfaces in the past, and there is literally no difference in quality of sound between this and some of the larger, more expensive models. I recommend this interface a thousand times over.

    Comments about Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Generation) USB Audio Interface:

    I got this for my portable studio setup for the road away from my home studio. Took me a while to find USB 3.0 drivers for this. The focusrite website doesn't exact;y make it easy to find. You have to Google "scarlett solo 2nd gen USB 3.0 driver" and download the Focusrite USB ASIO driver. In any case, once I got it working, it sounded pretty good with Samplitude and Guitar Rig. It's nice that it has 48v phantom power for mics and a dedicated instrument input, plus line outputs for connecting to monitors or whatever. No MIDI in/out, but that's ok. Controls feel pretty solid and the case is pretty attractive. I'd say this is a bargain given the sound quality and price point.

      Comments about Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Generation) USB Audio Interface:

      I was looking for an affordable audio interface that'd work as an external sound card and this does the trick. It may take a little troubleshooting (as it did for me) getting it to work with whatever DAW you're using, but once you download the driver and get the audio preferences just right in your software it's good to go. I spent the better part of an hour trying to figure out why it was only recording one side, not stereo, so when I played back it only play on my right headphone. Each input, the mic and guitar line, are a separate track in the stereo mix so you have to specify on the track your recording that you want to record mono on either/or. Once I figured that out, I realized you could also set up 2 tracks in your DAW, one to record the mic and one the guitar line, so you can record 2 separate tracks at the same time, kind of cool. I currently use Sonar X3, Reason and FL Studio. Before I couldn't switch between programs very easily without my sound card pooping out, but the Scarlett allows me to work simultaneously between programs flawlessly.

            Sounds great! Nice, clean audio. Unfortunately I couldn't download the bundled software because it wouldn't allow me to register the product on the Focusrite site. That makes it lose a star for me, otherwise great piece!
