A couple of people have left comments over the past week saying that they were able to get their 1st generation Focusrite Scarlett interfaces to work with the Windows drivers designed for the new 2nd gen Scarlett audio interfaces. But yesterday I installed the new beta driver 4. While it has a guitar input which is clearly marked with a guitar Icon on it I cant speak to its use for that because I use it exclusively with my Neumann mic and the Presonus. The Scarlett Solo runs in class-compliant mode on a Mac.
I was thinking on getting scarlet 2i2 but now i might just be convicted that the problem is with windows 10… I am very frustrated with those usb interfaces…. The High-Z input captures a lot more detail and subtleties in an electric guitar. Scarlett Solo is our simplest and most compact interface. I couldn't use this in a simple enough way to avoid ground loops. Converting your performance into digital audio and back again is the most important part of the recording process.

First thing I noticed was the quality build of the product, very solid. I tested the 1st gen 2i4 using the 4. So I already have a Presonus mic pre for processing, all I really ever used the Mbox for was conversion of the signal from analog to digital, the most logical step was to grab the scarlett Solo.
