VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: As far as the Scarlett unit goes, there is nearly zero latency. No distortion or impedance is noticeable when transferring sound to your computer. There is plenty of gain to amplify your signal, with extra gain to spare. Feature: The mic and instrument inputs are solid, and does not show any signs of cheap build quality or parts. All switches and knobs are very solid, with no wiggle. The knobs have just the right amount of resistance to ensure accuracy while being turned. Ease of Use: The Scarlett Solo is very straightforward to plug in and install. I'm not a big fan of downloading drivers and software, but at least you know you'll gave the latest updates. Just install the driver, plug the unit into the computer with the supplied USB cord, plug in your instrument or mic...then hook up your monitors in the rear of the unit, and your up and running. The green/red ring that surrounds the gain knob easily shows whether your sound output from your mic or instrument is too loud (red) or just perfect (green). Quality: The main body of the unit is metal, and the plastic used is of very high quality. All font on the unit is very crisp and clean. All knobs, switches, and ports are very solid with no wiggle and has the right resistance on each feature. Value: The build quality, sound quality, features, and plugins that come with this unit for only about $100 is an excellent deal! They could easily sell this product for more. Manufacturer Support: I have not had any experience yet with this manufacturer because I have not had any issues with this unit...however, the instructions are very clear and easily understood. The Wow Factor: Again, this unit is suprisingly powerful and crisp for the price. I would definitely recommend this unit to everyone. Overall: The Scarlett Solo is a solid unit with excellent build quality and features. It has a very straightforward interface and simple to use.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: You're mostly buying this for the pre-amp, it's really pretty good. The out put is very clean as well. Feature: I like the light up indicator to show if you are clipping, in danger of clipping, or in a good range. Wish it had more output options. Ease of Use: I had to install a driver that I had to find and download online from the presonus website but it wasn't that big of a deal. That being said... There are some diver issues between this and Reaper. Good latency though! Quality: Mechanically this thing seems really solid and like it will last. Value: This unit has lot of features compared to competitors in its price range. Overall: This is a good little interface to get you started but make sure your software setup is ready to go.
