I bought 2i2 and there are many background noises like a radio noise during tuning stations or hiss - what is weird is that crankes up ater launching Live 7.0.7, but
it's also audible just after starting up XP. And...through headphones the sound is fantastic, no noises at all, crisp and dynamic !
I tested two pairs of my musical mono cables, they work well with my hardware instruments. Sth wrong with outputs ? The Scarlett doesn't appear in my computer's device manager under 'sound, video and game controllers' after connecting to USB 3.0 port. It works only with 2.0/1.1 ports, but even my mouse doesn't function under 3.0 in this mobo.
