    Focusrite makes great stuff in the high end bracket. You gonna need to spend RME or Lynx money to attain that end of quality.

    Apollo on Win is a likely nightmare as others have said.

    How many i/o do you need? that is where you start

    RME drivers are awesome: turn the AI on after or before booting up. Total Mix takes some effort to comprehend. By no means was my UFX+ plug and play. Now that it is set up, tho, it works beautifully.

    Mid-grade? What's the budget? $1000US?

    Yeah, I think so. I need to mull over. It's not a huge priority, I'm getting some decent demos from my Uphoria.


    I also dig the fact that it's bus powered, I've used it in a live Ableton rig with a launchpad.
    Buy yeah, probably something in the 600-1k range. Was looking at a few tonight.

    So after all that, Amazon has a Prime Day deal on the Focusrite Scarlett 18i8. Maybe it will or maybe it won't get me closer to the sounds I'm hoping to capture. The extra inputs will be nice for less or hopefully no cable swapping.

    yes, i had this unit in house for a while...
    but once i got the chance to try a rme babyface pro,
    that's what i bought.
    has been rock solid.
    super clean pre's,
    super clean converters,
    very easy to setup zero latency monitoring, and monitor mixes,
    highly recommended!
