Reliable interface but Software could be improved.
Carl Ahn, 25.02.2021
Firstly, the build quality is excellent, sound is quiet and clear and for this price it’s is a great option for a small home studio set up.

However I find the ‘Mix Control’ software quite confusing and very unintuitive.
I have to restart my mac or already have the Focusrite plugged in on start up, in order for the software to register that it the device connected. The layout of the Mix Control settings are also not user friendly at all.

Another con is that phantom power covers both inputs. It would’ve been nice to have the option to select between the two.

I have since upgraded to external hardware preamps and now mainly use the line inputs / outputs which work absolutely fine. ..once you get the hang of how to route everything with the Mix Control!

Very good but..
Safwat, 27.09.2020
The product is amazing in all aspects, it is very powerful, no need to add on that, but it is not suitable for high impedance Headphone, I have two 250 ohms beyerdynamic 770 and 990, the headphones out sound coming from the Focusrite is very weak and not enough for high impedance Headphone, I have bought the Focusrite after reading in their website that with 8i6 model if the device was connected to power it will be suitable to operate 600 ohms headphones, and this information is not precise. They should have mentioned that you will be able to hear sound from your high impedance headphones, but the sound may not be enough for your liking. or you will get 10% of the required power to operate your high impedance headphones.

Anyway, for my 32 ohms AudioTechnics it is working fine, and it is working seamlessly with my KRK Rokite 8 Monitors, the main output is very powerful, 30% of it blows my studio apart.

Perfect for on the go
Rex C., 14.10.2020
I am new to producing, i'm mainly in the field of photo and video prod so i'm not sure if my comments are something of use, anyways, i bought this since i'm trying to use this on live acoustic performances while i'm taking videos of their performance, i think from all the interfaces that i reviewed, Focusrite really presented their products well and i think it's easy to operate even when you're new to the field of producing and with all the software and support that comes with it, it's something you can rely on. what i like as well with the appearance is it's compact body, the read color and the portability, and oh don't forget the SPDIF!
