Best interface under $1000

By Jason

from Arlington, Texas

Comments about Focusrite Forte - 2 Input / 4 Output USB Audio Interface:

Sounding excellent from AD/DA and functionality of the unit. I love the Forte after owning Steinberg UR28M and Apogee Duet. Forte is a winner here for me.

Comments about Focusrite Forte - 2 Input / 4 Output USB Audio Interface:

This interface is very stellar. I took a risk purchasing it with almost no real feedback out there other than a few YouTube videos. I'm used to using Apogee Symphony converters in the studio and I've used a Duet and an Mbox on my home rig in different situations. This product is a win in it's build and all around transparency with no coloration to the sound. It's not 2000 dollars so it's not going to perform like the Symphony, but it is far more realistic than the Duet (which I feel adds a fake "Apogee-Like Low End Bump"). It reminds me the kind of quality you get from RME. The Pres have rich detail, but no color which reminds me of a M101 Grace, but I didn't shoot it out to compare. My only problems with this interface is the navigating the settings on the interface itself could be more intuitive. I keep finding myself pressing the button to select and it doesn't do anything. Also the "DAW" access to control is bascially useless. It turns the knob into a zoom control.
