Looking for something to replace my Tascam US-144 mkII, thinking about the Focusrite Scarlett 2i1 3rd gen.  Does anyone know if Focusrite improved the issues found by Langston with the G2 model?  I'm not especially concerned as my only use for this is measurement at 48kHz, but I don't want spend my "stimulus money" on an unsuitable product.

Anyone have insight?

Honestly, having used the g1 and g2 models and the behringer 404hd models for my measuring setups extensively since Ivan/you/everyone got me into it I MUCH prefer the behringer.

The drivers in Windows 7,8,10 are hundreds of times more stable than the focusrite ones.

If you're using a Mac it's probably a mute point.

But my headaches with the focusrite are too high for me to recommend it (at least for Windows)

That and having 4channels is really nice.

That Behringer looks really good on paper. I've been thinking of retiring my Tascam interface as well. I think it's the Mk 1 but it might be the II . It sounded good but I never liked the setup and it's a bit of a pain to setup in Win 10.

Neither the 2 or 4 channel Behringers are in stock, anywhere.  While it's not a 'must have tomorrow' item, sooner is mo' betta.  That's why the Focusrite was where I was heading.  At this point in my career/life, I don't see me making multi-mic measurements often enough to justify buying a Roland Octacapture, nor do I need the level complexity/fuckupability that I've witnessed with its operators... so any higher input count is not necessary.  I guess I'll just keep using the Tascam until it dies.

I have a Scarlet 18i8 and need another for the PC Workstation in the home studio.  When I bought it, it just seemed like a more cost effective solution could be found.  Quality is quality and all that - blah blah blah :)

Anyway, looking through this latest series of posts, I just ordered a couple of Behringer's UMC204HD & UMC404HD.

Tim, Sweetwater has them in stock.

No, they don't.  All of the Behri's show as on backorder at Sweetwater and that's true of every vendor I'd willingly purchase from.  That's why I asked about the Focusrite.

No, they don't.  Dang, I didn't notice the back order status.  Oh well, they'll get here when they get here.  :)

Too bad, I really like my UMC404HD.

I do have an older G1 Focusrite that I replaced with my RME device that I'll throw on eBay in a bit unless you want it.

Maybe use it until the UMC's are in stock?
