Scarlett 2i2 vs Audiobox 22VSL. Which one should I get?

Post by BGR » Tue Feb 11, 2014 5:21 pm

I am considering getting either a:

1) Focusrite Scarlett 2i2; or,
2) Presonus Audiobox 22VLS.

My main purpose is to record classical guitar, acoustic bass guitar and voice. Using Line Audio Design CM-3 microphones.

Which interface would be a better choice? I mean, is one better than the other in terms of sound quality?

I recommend the 18i8 or the 18i20. Because they have digital inputs for expandability. You will outgrow quickly so you save more down the line. I had a 2i2. Great device however sold it once I was asked by audio engineer. Where is your spdif or adat ports? You can use it use other preamps and converters. If you want to get more professional later, this is the way to go. Save time, headaches and money. Do it right first.
These are my recommendations. By the way, focusrite is extremely stable considering the low prices. Good night!

+1 for the post above me. Going through the upgrade process and wish I would've done that in the beginning.
