Great audio interface on a budget
Timieck, 09.05.2021
I bought this with the purpose of using it with an amp sim since my current living situation does not allow me to use a proper amp.

The setup is very easy and even though I have no problems with technology och pcs I can easily see someone that is "tech illiterate" having very few issues setting this up since it takes you to IK Multimedias website where they run you through all the steps.

Power over USB is great for cable management, the build quality is great and it looks great and not out of place which is something I find important.

I have been running my Schecter C-7 Pro in to amplitube 5 with this and I haven't run in to any issues at all and it sounds great, not perfect but pretty close.

There's no features I'm missing personally but I can see some people wanting more.

All in all a great audio interface if you only need inputs for one microphone and one guitar and all for a great price.

Get it.
MikeCrossJung, 14.12.2020
Sound surprisingly good, both the preamp's sound for recording as well as the monitoring output quality. Headphone amp sounds good too. Knobs and build are ultra-solid, looks and feels premium. Well done folks.

For me this tiny guy is an easy desktop workplace audio solution acceptable for basic reference. No need to get in the studio for quality assurance listening, just this and some DT770 headphones. ( I'm an audio director. ) Since it's small, cheap, and runs on bus power, it's a good benchmark for multiple audio office workstations.

The software app is the standard for the whole series, but it doesn't offer features for the Solo model. Install and forget.

Keep in mind on this model the monitor level and headphone level are hard linked. With a standby switch on your speakers within reach, that's workable.

Ah, a word to the wise if you're new, if you are planning on using ProTools on the included PT First license, be prepared, by today's standards (2020) it's abysmally poor software. Only go that route if you have specific career reasons.

Good as starting point
Onchky, 15.02.2021
I've never had experience using audio interfaces. I was searching for a nice sound card to help my Mac Mini drive Sony MDR-7506, and after an extensive search, I realised I got Samson Q2U mic, and hell, why not try XLR stuff while getting an amp. For the price of desktop Fiio, I got way better build quality, perfectly stable performance without any issues on boot both on Mac and Windows (which is a nemesis of Fiio devices), and a nice clean interface for my mic. Why 4 stars for sound then? See, Q2U is a dynamic mic, and requires tons of gain. I could not manage to make it work without literally eating the mic. Replacing its head with Shure A81WS windscreen for better performance with sibilance and plosives made things worse—gain is clearly not enough. Other than that, Solo got super clean noise floor, clean and nice headphone amp for my cans, and really good build.

Very good deal for the price!!
AzzzTs, 14.04.2021
After using this for some months now, I can say that it was a good purchase. It works well for recording an instrument with no noticeable delay and it has a very good quality, it is simple to use and easy to set up.

What's not so good is that I have had some issues with my pc's audio some time after starting using it, but it's probably nothing to worry about since it happens very rarely and it's easy to fix.

It also comes with Ableton Live, Pro Tools and a bunch of audio plugins which is very useful for someone that wants to record audio. It's a very very good deal for the price.
