    "I am not too familiar with audio interfaces, but this particular one seems like a good example. I use a mac myself, so this product would cater to people like me. Having an "omnidirectional condenser microphone" is interesting because this is my first time hearing about one. I would look into this product a bit more before considering purchasing. "

    "Simple, great sounding USB interface, which I use with the Garageband 10. I was using the method of an analog mixer to the 1/4" input and output of my Macbook. This unit is such a better tool for simple recordings. Its clear and runs quiet. If I had the cash to spend, I would grab the "Blackbird" model, but this 2x2 works just fine for what I do, which is mainly record song ideas with electric and acoustic guitars, bass and a 57 mic. Very versatile and solid as a rock. Buy it!"

    "Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 DSP Firewire Audio Interface has been one of the best sounding audio options out there. You will not be disappointed. I would have paid a few hundred more dollars for this system. "

    "After using a bunch of recorders, nothings been more reliable than my scarlett 2i4. When ever me and the guys about to jam, we just hook up our instruments. With two inputs and four outputs, Focusrite Scarlett is the best audio interface for yourself or a small group of friends trying to make music."
