    Great!

    I needed a USB that is operational on Linux, with good quality workmanship in all audio interface, so I appreciated the quality of materials, the strength of the Scarlett 2i4, as the presence of Integrated 2 instrument inputs / mics, needing occasionally preamps, recording my own sound, my saxophone and / or singing with my microphone, and also to record an electric guitar (directly on the Scarlett).

    I use it in main audio interface on a laptop "barebones" Clevo, connected to two monitor speakers ADAM A3X. I also use a USB / MIDI Controller Akai MPD32 and a USB master keyboard.

    The config of my laptop: 15 "screen, Intel motherboard, Core i7, SSD 256GB + 750GB 7200RPM disk, 16GB RAM, N…

    I use it in main audio interface on a laptop "barebones" Clevo, connected to two monitor speakers ADAM A3X. I also use a USB / MIDI Controller Akai MPD32 and a USB master keyboard.

    The config of my laptop: 15 "screen, Intel motherboard, Core i7, SSD 256GB + 750GB 7200RPM disk, 16GB RAM, Nvidia.

    UTILIZATION

    Ultra-stable drivers for Linux 64-bit Ubuntu Studio 13.04.

    I use 64-bit Renoise (the ultimate tracker!) As the main DAW to compose, produce, sequencer, sampler, and play my music (Electro, Dubstep, Glitch-Hop, Experimental and Ambient).

    Renoise is cross-platform and runs natively on Ubuntu Studio, via Jack or ALSA, no latency: 0.00 ms is obtained thanks to the core "real time".

    GETTING STARTED

    Installation: you plug and play it live without any other procedure, a child's play, and pure happiness. The card is directly supported by the Linux system, I will (almost) natively, and immediately seems to work without any problem drivers or anything.

    Not even need a manual to operate the Scarlett 2i4 is very intuitive: dedicated knobs for volume "monitor", the headset volume, gain mic / instrument, etc.. Everything here is very classic and well made: the quality is, overall, good.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Really not at all disappointed with the quality / price, Linux compatibility, performance, quality manufacturing report, characteristics, I would do this choice without hesitation.

    A sound card "plug and play" perfect for the studio

    The scarlett 2i4 2i2 is like his previous success as its proven technology, the stability of its drivers, product quality, innovative design and perfect ergonomics.

    I use it in my home studio on board: windows 7 laptop with Ableton Live, Magix Samplitude studio.

    I control my vst midi with a master keyboard or a drum which acts sampler. I go to the master's of Monitoring and Yamaha HS50M Sennheiser HD-25 SP II, no breath, the sound is clear in all frequency ranges.

    UTILIZATION

    Also having a MOTU ultralite firewire which cost me 4 times the price of scarlett, I've always had problems with cuts, stalls, crackling sounds, unstable drivers ... scarlett with the sound is still th…

    I control my vst midi with a master keyboard or a drum which acts sampler. I go to the master's of Monitoring and Yamaha HS50M Sennheiser HD-25 SP II, no breath, the sound is clear in all frequency ranges.

    UTILIZATION

    Also having a MOTU ultralite firewire which cost me 4 times the price of scarlett, I've always had problems with cuts, stalls, crackling sounds, unstable drivers ... scarlett with the sound is still there, faithful to the appointment, and that is why you buy an external sound card.

    Basic latency is low (20 - 30 ms in ableton), we can probably improve the performance of latency, but I have not tried it yet.

    GETTING STARTED

    I do not have a manual, no need also for easy installation. In the box there's just an installation guide and specifications.

    The installation is done it without problems?
    It's simple, I downloaded and installed the drivers, I plugged the scarlett and his fate immediately. When I unplug the usb of scarlett, the internal sound card of the PC takes over. I reconnected the scarlett, it becomes my default device. What can I say?

    OVERALL OPINION

    Conclusion: You do not want more than 2 inputs (jack / XLR), you have a tight budget (200 euros), you want a plug and play sound card, you will not be disappointed with the Scarlett 2i4 has a quality / very attractive price.
