Отличный выбор
Alex Bond, 06.06.2021
В карте 3 канала на выход звука - 2 jack 6,3 мм+1 jack 6,3 мм для наушников, и 2 канала на вход - xlr и jack 6,3 мм. Есть возможность прямой передачи звука на колонки через кнопку Direct Monitor.
В связи с отсутствием микрофона весь потенциал карты пока не оценил. Но для гитары, либо для ударных (моно) для индивидуального пользования карты подходит на 100%.
Но если планируете играть более, чем на одном инструменте одновременно, я бы рекомендовал брать также Focusrite на большее количество каналов.

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.

Nice for home recording!
Tuncy, 07.05.2020
I am super happy with it.
I thought its broken in the first place. I had a problem with the USB plug on my computer, so the sound was crackling especially on youtube videos. The USB port was probably bottlenecking the data transfer. I switched the USB port to the USB 3.0 one (even tho its a USB 2.0 device) and it solved the problem.

My only complain is that, it doesnt come with a dedicated headphone volume knob or a mute switch. So as long as my headphones are plugged in, they work. If you don't have a volume knob on your speakers, its very hard to balance the volume of monitors and headphones. If I knew it, I would buy the 2i2. And also, you cannot do a stereo recording from your stereo effects unit.

Good overall. Do consider its cons and pros. 2i2 may be a better option for you.

This is a very good audio interface for the money for someone who doesn't need a lot of inputs and outputs.

It's Great!
Freeeeeet, 05.07.2021
I bought this audio interface almost a year ago and during all this time I have never regretted anything. The sound quality is super, especially for such a low price. The price-performance ratio is, in my opinion, the best on the market. Yes, there is only one instrumental input, but if you are a beginner (and maybe an experienced) guitarist, then this is what you need.
The interface itself is very compact and nice looking. All buttons and knobs can be easily understood.
All in all, I would recommend this audio interface to anyone who doesn't need multiple instrument inputs at the same time. 5 points out of five.

Solid Litthe Thing
Tsvetan Tsvetkov, 17.12.2019
Well it's an industry leading product so a lot has been said and written about the Scarlett series. Here are my 2 cents.
Pros:
- Very well Built
- Usb C
- Air button
- Direct Monitoring (not all similar product have this)
- Small and Portable
- Sounds Decent
- Bunch of free software and plugins bundled with it

Cons:
- When I use my guitar with it it peeks super early so the volume levels in the monitors can't go that high
- No headphone volume control
- No combined XLR and audio jack
- A bit expensive

Overall it works great it does what it's made to do and it's very rigid. If the price doesn't bother you this is the usb interface for you.

Great for recording guitars in your bedroom, I'm about to use it as a DAC as well, for the Sennheiser HD58X Jubilee headphones that I'm currently expecting.

Awesome piece of technology
Otterfinger, 05.01.2021
I use this interface to connect my electrical guiter to my Macbook Pro with Garageband. Setting this up was more than easy and it works perfectly fine. Before I purchased this, I was kind of worried because of the latency discussions and I was quite surprised that when I first connected this device to my Macbook that there was a huge delay of about 1 second. But I quickly found out that this was my own mistake because I used Bluetooth Headphones. I switched to speakers (or other headphones with a cable) and the latency disappears completely. I can highly recommend to purchase this product.

Excellent quality
Kevinfoley, 06.04.2021
I am using this device at home for Amplitube 5 amp plugins for my guitar. The quality in sound and built is unmatched in this price range. I think if you are looking to record music or even just to plug your headphones in and listen yourself these are the way to go.

Pros:
- Affordable for non professionals
- Ease of use with installation, when you plug it in your computer recognises it straight away and runs through install and setup
- Build quality is very good

Cons
- Does not come with headphone adapter for normal aux chord

TwoJaysOK, 14.06.2021
Didn't want to buy an amp so I bouhght this instead. Minimal on features and multiple connections but works with instrument input, mic input, and headphone output. A perfect addition for that want a lightweight solution to audio interface needs.

greekphilip, 10.05.2021
This little interface is perfect for what I wanted. Instead of getting an amp I just use this along with logic and my studio monitors. Works like a charm!

Pros: Small, good design, easy to configure, easy to use

Cons: Nothing really

Perfect to me
Hostis, 21.01.2021
I use this audio interface to connect my monitors to my computer, as well as to plug a microphone in and record my voice.

The look is pretty cool, the color is nice, it is pretty small and fits well anywhere.

The different buttons feel really great to use, most of them have a little light showing when it's used (you can change the colors yourself on your computer).

I don't hear any white noise or anything, and never had any problem so far. The recording with my microphone went well too, which means the 48V button worked well. I don't hear any particular latency while playing music on my monitors.

I don't see any cons for now, the price is really reasonable and I like this audio interface very much! :)

Small but big quality
Theofanhs Siderhs, 13.03.2021
I gave it as a gift to my brother to sing with his microphone as he plays at the same time with his guitar, reliable device, good materials, quite happy, easy installation, so there are no negative comments about her money and to start in the world of music is the best!

Unbeatable for the money
go_faustino, 20.02.2021
Use it for some home recordings, and it works perfectly with a Mac / Garage Band. The build quality and looks are excellent, the sound quality can't be faulted for the price and has everything you need for quick and simple instrument / vocal recording. Small enough to carry around and looks really nice on your desk.

Awesome
noxbenton, 11.02.2020
Been using this one daily for a few months and have nothing bad to say about it. Sounds great, no problems with latency or anything. I'm running a guitar and mic to it, studio monitors and headphones out of it and really have nothing bad to say. Works as a USB interface should, built sturdy, knobs are great.

Only reason for me to get anything fancier would be more inputs which I personally don't need.

The greatest budget audiointerface
George Panfilov, 06.02.2021
This is my first audiointerface and I'm not an expert in equipment but my headphones sounds really cool! Focusrite Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen has wonderful convenience and mobility, I think I'll take it with me to travels and other trips. The first reaction was WOW, design is really cool but impractical because glossy panel collects all the dust. I think it's the only one minus. I recommend this audiointerface to beginners . Buy it and you will glad to be owner of this interface.
