Does anyone use Scarlett 2i2 gen2 or Audient iD4 with Bias FX desktop?
The title says it all. I'm going to get the audio interface next month.
I'm interested in those mentioned interfaces caused it covers my budget.
Any issues or latency on them?

At PG, we use these with decent results on a daily basis :
- Focusrite Scarlett Solo, 2i2, 18i20,
- Tascam US 2x2
- PreSonus iOne, iTwo

Thank you so much. By the way, you mean the second generation for Scarlett 2i2. Am I right? FYI, I recorded based on Windows
The Focusrite USB drivers are pretty mature! I had to make a setup for someone who doesn't understand DAW's or computers in general, and send him off to the remote mountains of Molokai to record his own vocals, with a Focusrite 2i2, a pop filter, laptop, headphones and a cheap condenser mic, sans even a cellphone signal, and it all went fine.
You can see the difference in measured latency between the first and second gen drivers at my ever evolving round trip latency roundup. http://kailuamusicschool.com/tech/round-trip-latency-roundup/
Thanks for your information. It's very helpful for me :)

There is not a huge difference between the Gen1 and 2 Scarlett. I have the Gen1 2i4 and it is really nice. IIRC, the gen2 corrects an issue where the gen1 inputs were easily overdriven. Thankfully mine has not had problems with it. Works great with Bias and everything else. Obviously the gen2 is the preferred version; but I would expect any version to work with Bias.
Thanks ! I'm going to test both Audient iD4 & 2i4 Gen1 at the store soon.
Run a round trip latency test! I'd be excited to see. So many brands entering the market out of nowhere and some seeming to have a TON of praise and prestige that also came out of nowhere, I have to see if it all lives up to the hype
I will test these 3 interfaces at the store soon.
- Steinberger UR22 mkii
- Audient iD4
- Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 Gen2
