just what I needed
I have recently switched over to complete software-based music creation & the Focusrite Scarlett Solo is exactly what I needed to get my guitar signal into the computer. PLUS, the FREE software packages included are more than worth the price alone, so it's like I got the interface for FREE. The installation was a snap & it's powered thru the USB connection, so there is one less cable to manage/trip over. The box itself is very solid and feels like it will last a good long time. **The ONLY thing to mention is that you WILL need a direct injection or DI box as today's hot guitar pickups will clip your signal inputs, despite the adjustable input gain controls.
