    Default Focusrite 2i2 Bundle

    I'm thinking of upgrading the way I record myself this year, just for fun at home and for posting the odd video on here or YouTube.

    Has anyone used a Focusrite 2i2 interface/recording bundle as sold for around the 200 mark?

    It seems to offer all I'd need but just wanted someone's more experienced input before I invest.
    Luv n stuff, Dave

    I have the cheaper iTrack Solo and it's been great. If the 2i2 has the ins and outs you need, go for it.

    Thanks Jim. I actually went out and bought the 2i2 studio bundle yesterday and will play around with it to see if I like it. It's the DAW software I find intimidating, although I suppose it's like anything else in life, once you become familiar with it'll get easier...

    You should be able to use it with any DAW you like if you don't like what came with the bundle. I've used mine with Reason mostly but I think I've had it connected to Reaper. Also several iOS apps like Cubasis, Multitrack DAW, etc.
