Dickie D also recently got a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 audio interface per Leo's recommendation. Here's a bit of what the company says about it: Two of the best performing mic preamps, now with switchable air Mode to give your recordings a brighter and more open sound. Two high-headroom instrument inputs to plug in your guitar or bass. Two balanced line inputs, suitable for connecting line-level sources. There's also a quick start tool to get up and running easier than ever. Includes Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack, Ableton Live Lite, Softube Time and Tone Bundle, Focusrite’s Red Plug-in Suite available via download upon purchase and registration. You'll see and hear the Focusrite 2i2 on this week's show and every show on-going from this one. Folks at the other end say it sounds 'great.' That alone should be worth $169.99.
