Focusrite Scarlett SoloThe Scarlett Solo USB audio interface offers a great-value & high-quality with a sound comparable to other such units costing many times more. Small and incredibly compact the Scarlett Solo is the perfect audio-interface for both desktop and laptop machines on location, with a single mic pre-amp on input one, a line/Instrument for input two & recording rates of 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz & 96kHz at 24-bit resolution.
We compared the Scarlett Solo mic pre-amp to that of an Apogee Duet mk1, and using a typical 'prosumer' budget vocal condenser microphone, to our ears it was nigh-on impossible to tell them apart. Bearing in mind the Apogee Duet cost four times as much as the Scarlett Solo on release, this is some achievement!
The Scarlett Solo's 48-volts phantom power is delivered without any external 'wall-wart' power-supply and also works on a laptop powered only by battery, a great bonus for on-location work.
The second Line input is switchable to INST (instrument) mode to become a high-gain input. Simply plug in a guitar or bass and you can feed straight into your favourite amp-modelling s/w rig to get super-real guitar sounds; otherwise it functions as a standard line-level input suitable for keyboard outputs etc.
The Scarlett Solo comes with a promo code allowing the owner to download and register the included free software (Ableton Live Lite, Basstation plugin synth & Scarlett Plugin Suite), plus a very decent 16gb mini-collection of Loopmasters loops & fills/transition in a variety of genres.
All in all this interface is unbeatable value, so checkout the full video review!
