I was looking for a simple audio interface to control my studio monitors and eventually connect a microphone. I didn't need much more than that. Any added features would be a nice bonus. Of course in the budget range every google search and youtube video pointed me to the focusrite solo. I then checked if there was anything out there that matched the solo for specs but possibly at a lower price point, since I am on a strict budget.

Then the Audio 1 and 2 popped up on Thomann's website. At first I thought it was too good to be true. Same specs as the solo but half the price?! I thought there must be something missing... Well to say I am pleasantly surprised is an understatement.

First, this thing is built like a tank! Solid construction, nice feeling knobs, small enough to fit on my desk and robust enough to throw in my backpack. The sound is perfectly fine. There's no feedback or hiss etc. It does the exact job I want it to do. It's also plug and play! on Windows! No drivers to install or anything.

My guess as to why it's priced so competitively:
1. it's an introductory price to entice new buyers to take a chance (like me)
2. No ads or marketing outside of Thomann's website. (also costs money)
3. No drivers. meaning no development and maintenance of software (could matter to you. I don't mind.)
4. probably some other business related stuff

None of the above points take away from the quality of the device itself.
Overall, I'm happy with the interface as it does what I need it to do. Should anything change I'll update this review.

Conclusion: if you're like me and looking for an audio interface to primarily control the volume of your monitors with solid sound quality, this is the one to get.


Good choice for the money

For the first time I ordered a usb sound card and was not disappointed.
I usually plug my guitar into a amp and play for fun, but recently I decided to try recording my stuff.
Realizing that I needed a device for amateur recording, the first thing I looked at was a focusrite solo. Then I saw this device in similar ones and a spark slipped between us)
I am connecting the interface to a laptop, so I needed an additional connector to power it if there was not enough power from the laptop.
I like separate volume controls for headphones and monitors, software included, good sound quality for home recording.
Swissonic Audio 1 fully meets my requirements, I'm happy!


Best in its price range

After seeing many audio interfaces i n the 50 to 90 euro price range I decided to buy this one, and I couldn't be more happy with my purchase.

The build quality is surprisingly good for its price (solid metal all around). The buttons and knobs feel like they could take a beating and the cable ports are very well made.

I use it mainly as a bass preamp, going in digitally into my virtual amp and it works great. The flaw I have found with it so far is some noise that is barely noticeable, it also could be the cable or the fact that I have many electrical devices near it.

Overall 9/10.


Didn't work at all

Sound is very quiet, like really really quiet, even with the usb-c powering.

Don't really know if i got an faulty unit or not but still i would recommend looking at other interfaces than this. I Comboed this with the t. bone mb7 beta, and i got to stay like 0.5cm away from the microphone to anyone even hear anything.
