I can't let it go....... lol
I mean, I just can't let it go,.... its so beautiful. I might have to sleep with it next to me tonight - lol
No, seriously though. I am blown away by the construction. The anodized brushed aluminum body is just amazingly sharp and the whole thing just reeks of quality. Using it with Logic Pro X. Performance impeccable, dead quite, extremely low latency at extremely high performance levels. Just everything rock solid and seems to perform just as Focusrite advertises. 18 simultaneous inputs are just what the Doc ordered for connection to large board/sends for recording larger project if you need. Sure you can get USB mixer but only 2 channels to DAW usually. Perhaps the only trial I had was in a couple downloads of extras that were included in the bundle, and couldn't figure why things weren't connecting till I realized I had to go to settings on Mac and choose the Scarlett for audio (Duh). The 18i8 has the little extra features I needed and I couldn't be happier with it.
No down side here... other than the constant compulsion to touching that beautiful brushed exterior :)
Now I'm gonna go broke changing all my studio equipment to color coordinate now with the Scarlett :)
