    Comments about Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Generation) USB Audio Interface:

    Bought this to replace my Focusrite 2i2 that was stolen. I didn't need the extra channels from the 2i2, so I just went with the solo. Right off the bat, the unit just sounds better to my ears. Thus, everything that is a claimed improvement in the second generation is absolutely true. The performance for the price is second to none. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who just wants to record some general songwriting ideas. Obviously, a larger unit would be needed for recording an entire band live. However, for me, this product is perfect. I'm using a newish(2015) mac book pro, and logic 10.

      I record music at home. The thing does what it advertises and it sounds fine. I got it working after six whole hours of driver issues.

        Comments about Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Generation) USB Audio Interface:

        A complete virgin, other than hanging a mic from the light fixture in the garage back in the 70s.

        Without false modesty...I am a terrible student, but this was easier than waking up this morning. I had to upgrade my sound chip to a card, old PC.

        I wouldn't and have not hesitated to recommend this and the whole lineup. What might the Beatles have done with this unit and a simple 8 track DAW?

          Comments about Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Generation) USB Audio Interface:

          I recently bought a new computer and couldn't find any drivers for my beloved old Tascam 428. I asked around some friends, did some research of my own, and decided to buy the scarlet. I am very satisfied with it. It's easy to use, and the recording quality has improved noticeably ( maybe my new computer helps too). Good value, good quality. I recommend it.

            Driver Issues?

            Like Zack, I experienced some driver issues. After speaking with Daniel @ Musician's Friend we began trouble shooting and after asking me several questions he asked me if I double right clicked the Run command after downloading the driver and I thought maybe I did not. Sure enough, I tried downloading the driver and double right clicked the Run command and my driver issue was fixed.

              This little box is awesome! Excellent craftsmanship, easy setup, almost no latency (compared to other USB devices I have tried) and no extra power strip to lug around. So far I am super pleased with this purchase and do not see that changing in the future.
