*** Sorted *** Time For A New Audio Interface: Recommendations Needed

Post by FuzzMonkey »

*** UPDATE *** Went with the 3rd Gen Focusrite Scarlett Solo. ***

I'm looking to update my audio interface and am wondering if you guys can recommend something based on your experiences? I'm currently using an IK Multimedia Stealth Plug I brought years ago with a copy of AmpliTube. It has served me well over the years but has developed a buzz due to its age. As a result, I thought I'd better upgrade to something better before it dies on me altogether.

I basically will be using it with a bunch of different software packages such as AmpliTube, Guitar Rig, plus a couple of other stand-alone packages and was thinking that a Focusrite Scarlett Solo might be the ticket as I only need the one instrument input but am open to suggestions.

Thanks in advance for the feedback, recommendations, and suggestions.

~ Blake.

P.S. - I'm using a PC; not a Mac.

I use my Solo with both mac and pc at times, generation 3 latency is minimal. Works great.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

IK Multimedia AXE

Amp sims sound so much better than through the 2i2's I relied on for years.

Arturia MiniFuse.

I just got the MiniFuse 2 and it's doing a wonderful job. Way better than the Audient I used to have.

Scarlett Solo or Apollo Solo?
When faced with quality, I recognise it every time.

Just received an axe io. It was cheaper if I bundled it with amplitube max for some reason. It’s good so far
