Focusrite Scarlett Solo V3 USB Audio Interface
The Focusrite Scarlett Solo V3 USB Audio Interface is the perfect audio interface for a singer-songwriter.
The simplest model in the range, the third-generation Scarlett Solo provides singer-songwriters with a reassuringly easy recording process. Equipped with high performance 24-bit/192kHz AD-DA converters, Scarlett guarantees the same professional sound quality throughout the third-generation range. Its features include a single upgraded third-generation Scarlett mic preamp: with a switchable Air setting to reproduce the Air effect of Focusrite’s original ISA mic preamp, giving your vocal recordings a brighter and more open sound.
The high impedance,high-headroom instrument input allows you to record guitar or bass without any clipping or unwanted distortion, while Gain Halo metering makes it easy for you to set the input level. And Scarlett Solo's balanced outputs are hum-free when connecting studiomonitors with balanced inputs, so you’ll always have pristine audio playback.
Scarlett Solo is designed to stand up to days on the road and connects straight to your Mac® or PC via USB cable, with no external power required. It comes with all the softwaretools you need to get started, including two comprehensive digital audio workstations: Ableton® Live Lite™ and Pro Tools® First Focusrite Creative Pack. Intuitive enough for beginners yet advanced enough to inspire real creativity with great-sounding effects.

This is a great interface for someone who doesn't have a ton of money to spend. Considering how expandable it is to have up to 16 inputs, this is the perfect platform to build a studio from. It has 96k/24 bit capabilities and the VRM is an amazing feature that will make you reconsider the way you view mixing with headphones. I use it all the time and my mixes have improved drastically because of the number of different speakers you have to reference. The preamps are pretty transparent and don't really add or take away from the sound, which would be the only real drawback to this device.
Bought the Saffire Pro 24 DSP following a bad experience with the ART Dual USB Pre. I am really enjoying the DSP features especially the Virtual Room Modeling. This feature lets you select one of three rooms and in each room up to 8 different speakers can be chosen. So for those mixing on headphones it really helps you create a better mix. The Focusrite includes a very powerful mixer including separate mixes for the two headphone outputs which is great for tracking where each performer wants their instrument to be the loudest in their monitor mix. The two headphone outs are really handy. Another great feature is that you can use the 2 mic pres and the 2 line inputs at the same time. When I purchased it I thought it was only 2 analog inputs simultaneously but the device lets you record 4 analog channels simultaneously. The pre amps are pretty dry but they have a low noise floor and are good if you want a transparent sound. Its a feature packed product. I highly recommend it.
