    Focusrite ISA 220

    Hi all, I'm debating picking up a Focusrite ISA 220 for $550. The only pre I currently have outside my PreSonus 16.4.2 is a GAP Pre73. There doesn't seem to be much out there regarding this pre, only some bad feedback regarding the converters. That doesn't bother me as I likely wouldn't use...

    Hi I currently own a Scarlett 18i20 and am using my iPad or faders on a Novation SL MKII to control Ableton Live and Logic. I'd love more control over the faders and more general DAW control from my hardware. I've been looking into getting a Behringer X32, hoping this may make my Scarlett 18i20...

    Pre-Amp Levels: M-Audio Omni IO Vs. Focusrite Saffire Pro 14

    I've had an M-Audio Delta 66 w/ Omni IO breakout box for around 10 years. The Omni IO went crap, a couple weeks ago, and I just replaced it with a Focusrite Saffire Pro 14.

    Opinions on the Focusrite Octopre MKII

    I would appreciate your opinion on the Focurite Octopre MKII, mostly the sound quality. I want to add more mic inputs to my setup. I already have a computer interface with optical I/O (MOTU 828 MKII) so I think the Octopre would do the job at the right price. Because it is a newer design, I...

    Choice of addon pre via ADAT to a Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56

    Hi Guys, Following my purchase of a Focusrite ISA 2 Preamp unit, I decide to upgrade my 4 m-audio delta cards. I went with the Saffire 56, seemed a good choice with good reviews. The Preamps quality is honest and for the small tests I did, the converter seemed better than the delta cards. So...
