Focusrite audio interfaces (sound cards) are by far one of the best in the market. For their prices and functionalities they are much recommended. However some beginners may find them a bit difficult at first if you don’t know how to use DAW.
DAW stands for Digital Audio Workstation. It is a software that lets you record muliple layers through your sound card to your computer. Some examples are FL Studio, Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Logic Pro etc. All Focusrite audio interfaces includes some few DAW software.
Focusrite manufactures professional audio equipment like audio interfaces, microphone preamps, consoles, analogue EQs, Channel strips, and digital audio processing hardware and software. They are based in England but their products are manufactured in China.
So, if you are a singer/songwriter and just want to play an acoustic guitar/piano or sing a melody, record multiple layers and mix them at home to make a professional studio quality track, the Scarlett Solo Studio or Scarlett 2i2 Studio is your best bet.
