        I am using the Scarlett 6i6 to set up a small home recording studio. The great thing is it has 2 headphone outputs, and great mic preamps.

          This is going to be the interface between a midi controller and a Mac computer. I'll be recording songs. This makes it all possible in the digital age.

          Really Good Sounding Interface

                Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 USB 2.0 Audio Interface:

                I have been recording at home since 2003. I have tried numerous interfaces over the years. This Scarlett 6i6 looks good, sounds great and works well with my Windows 7 setup. You will have to plug it in for power but for this kind of setup you really need to. I bought it to hear the preamps on this and when I immediately played my acoustic guitar back through the 6i6 I had a smile on my face. Thanks B&H for the great product. Merry Xmas........

                        I was comparing this with the rme babyface, and truth be told, the sound on the focusrite is clearer and more robust. If it wasn't for the shoddy software, I would have kept the focusrite and sent back the babyface. if you're not gonna do any mixing, this is excellent interface. the software won't allow you to listen to multiple sources all at once. I like to play reference tracks on my media player(cuz all the new tracks are encoded and can't be loaded onto my daw), but to do so, I would have to close out my daw completely, to let focusrite's drivers access the media player. Then I had to open/close, then open wmp a 2nd time for the drivers to adjust to the new source before I got any audio. I'm running windows 7, a different os might fare better. test it out, just a shame I had to send it back for shoddy software and settle for a more expensive 2nd place contender, babyface.
