Please help me choose an audio interface

For home studio/bedroom solo recording and podcast where there's already a Zoom Q2N HD camcorder and an iPhone 11 pro available with several small mixers to choose from --

Ever tried a harmonizer? TC Helicon VoiceWorks

I dug this unit out today - and the video is a walkthrough of the different preset programmes. Some are useful, some just plain strange! I can see the solo singer in a bar maybe? You have to work hard to create your own pile of songs through!

Best chair for music production?

Is there a specific chair that's most loved by music producers?

Or one you use and would recommend?

I do use some eq, comp and spatial plugins on the vocal channel inserts that can all be disabled during mixing….
