A wonderful recording interface,

somefinn, 16.10.2017
Use,
Id be on the market for a Macbook and recording interface for a few months, i'd previously used M-Audio 1010LT with a windows based PC. Immediately when i started using the 4Pre, it was clear that some of the troubleshooting issues i had encountered with previous products would not be an issue here, it simply works.

Pros & Cons
it's incredibly straight forward. plug and play, and for the level of recording i was accustomed to in the home studio setting it seemed like a step up.
1 con was through my own ignorance when not being accustomed to Focusrites's software application, that allows to assign and route mix options, after reading up on it though it works perfectly.
It could have come with Thunderbolt lead, i had to buy one separately.

Clarity,
The sound is second to none and is limited only by the mic's used, I've been enjoying my Rode for many years but have really gotten more use from it over the past year or so of having the 4pre.

Comprehensibility
In general it's a simple piece of equipment, it's Macbook only, and it has worked for me without issue. I hope it continues to do so over the coming years.

Totally worth it

17.04.2016
It's not the cheapest one, but for 18 inputs and 10 outputs(with ADAT), you can't find a better interface than this one with its price range.

Excellent preamps, air feature is also great. Latency is very impressive. With 48000 sample rate and 128 samples, I get 6,73 ms overall latency in Ableton.
