Good when bundled with Amplitube 5, but perhaps for the price go for the I/O + Max ?
ccaru, 26.02.2021
I went down the slippery slope with this one. Started off with a Behringer 202 HD which was great for the price, but then I wanted Amplitube... After looking at the Amplitube software only price, I decided to return the Behringer and get the I/O Solo + Amplitube 5 bundle. I loved the Guitar specific features on this one, but Amplitube's marketing strategy is too strong for me.... once I started seeing all those amp sims that I could have with Amplitube Max, I got hooked. Realising that the software only upgrade cost way more than if I had to get the I/O (not SOLO) model with Amplitube 5 Max, I returned this one in favour of it's big brother.

Genau was ich gesucht habe
TobeTheRope, 25.01.2021
Ich habe mir dieses Interface fürs Recording Zuhause gekauft, da mein altes Behringer UMC202 laufend Treiberprobleme hatte. Klar kann man die beiden Geräte wegen des enormen Preisunterschiedes fairerweise nicht direkt vergleichen, aber das AXE I/O Solo hat meine Erwartungen noch übertroffen. Der Dynamikumfang und die Auflösung ist mit meinen Monitoren ist für den Preis superb! Die Verarbeitung ist makellos. Beim Instrumenteneingang lässt sich die Impedanz stufenlos regeln wodurch man plötzlich eine Menge Spielraum für das Beeinflussen des Grundsounds bekommt. Ein klasse Feature! Der Preamp lässt sich zwischen PURE oder JFET umschalten, was aber wirklich sehr subtil ist. Zudem gibt es auf der Rückseite einen Line In/ Mic In welcher in meinen Ohren überaus neutral klingt. Auch praktisch ist der Blend Regler mit dem man zwischen dem Wet-Signal vom PC (z.B. bei Verwendung von Amplitube) und dem unverzögerten Direktsignal blenden kann. Oben drauf bekommt man Amplitube 5 als Standalone und Plugin dazu. D.h. also einfach Gitarre oder Bass einstöpseln, Preset wählen oder erstellen und loslegen. Die Qualität der enthaltenen Amps, Cabs, Mikros und Effekte ist klasse. Ich würde sogar behaupten im Mix kann man sie nicht mehr von den Originalen unterscheiden. Die Latenz ist je nach Einstellung zwar spürbar, aber den Wenigsten wird das überhaupt auffallen. IK hat hier ein grandioses Komplettpaket geschnürt das mich auf ganzer Linie überzeugt hat. Wer eh Amplitube Max möchte sollte sich aber lieber das größere Bundle mit dem AXE I/O + Amplitube Max holen, da der Aufpreis hier nur ein Drittel des Preises beträgt den man später für das Upgrade auf Max zahlen würde. Klare Kaufempfehlung fürs Home Recording!
