I found a decent deal on a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 on Craigslist, so I figured I should jump. The Solos come available every once in a while on there for $90-120, I’ve seen a 2i4 (2 inputs, 4 outputs) for $285, and mine (2 inputs, 2 output) was in the middle at $150. I don’t REALLY need the 2 inputs but I thought it might be useful if I ever decide to pick up guitar again. I suppose it is also theoretically possible that I might record a thing with another person. It could happen.
I’m still using my USB mic set up, so I haven’t had a chance to play with this one yet, but I am looking forward. Everyone I know who has a Focusrite interface seems to quite happy with it, for the price.
Who wants to plug an XLR in there, plug it into the PS3 and play some Singstar? ;)
