Focusrite Scarlett 8i6
I have had the unit for about a month, it is being used for online 'studio' practices and DAW interfacing.
LIKES: I like the unit, all jacks are well marked for their purposes. Indicator lights are easy to read, software is easy to use, and displayed intuitively. Like the quick adjustments that can be made of the front of the unit, the virtual sound adjustments have a very nice warm sound to them. If you need cold and clean you can get that from this unit too, just turn off the extra effects.
Dislikes: Wish it had a slightly higher volume output. I am not going to blame the unit since it may simply be my audio card.
One final thought in closing- my wife and I fill up 4 input channels on this (and if you check there are only 4 line inputs) on the 8i6, definitely get the next larger unit! Those line inputs are what most people need, and the cost is minimally more for significantly more line inputs.
Otherwise it is a great unit, and I thank Dustin Keesbury for pointing me toward the Focusrite units.
