Setting up this interface will all depend on which DAW you want to use it with. It does have MIDI in and MIDI out so you can use it with almost any DAW and it will connect to all of your gear. If you use this in some DAW programs you could run into some small set up issues in programs like FL Studio. I am not sure why but in my personal experience I have hit a few bumps when trying to use it with FL Studio 9.
You can not rack this interface, but it is small and compact so it does not take up much desktop space. It is lightweight and can be very portable if you need an interface that is ready to go with you and your laptop.
This unit is so much like some of the other interfaces in this price range like the MBox or iTrack Solo interfaces. There really is nothing different between any of them except for the Saffire 6 has a little better preamp to it that will give you a better sound when recording especially if you are using a low end microphone. But overall there really is nothing about this interface that sticks out, it is priced averagely and has the same specs as so many other models. It will be personal preference if you want to purchase this. I will say that it is built well though and seems to be able to hold up over time.
