Hey there everybody. I'm currently looking for a quality audio interface on a budget (roughly 200$ or so). I've heard good things about Focusrite interfaces, and especially for my price range. So I've sparked a lot of interest in some of the Scarlett and Saffire models. Specifically, the 6i6 and Saffire Pro 14 (I need midi and s/pdif). Their specs seem to be very similar. The big differences are that the 6i6 has more instrument inputs, 2 headphone jacks, a power on/off switch, and is USB 2.0 rather than Firewire. Based on the looks, specs, and reviews, I'm definitely leaning towards the Scarlett 6i6. Especially since I've seen quite a few for $190-200, while the Saffire is typically $250. I use a Macbook Pro as my computer, Presonus Studio One 2.0 as my DAW, and would use the interface mostly for DI and Guitar recordings. I'd only really need 2 instrument inputs, but all the 2-input interfaces that I've seen don't have s/pdif or midi. Is the extra $50 worth it for the Firewire connection? I know that many Mac users prefer Firewire to USB, but with the improvement of USB 2.0, will the Firewire make a noticeable difference of any sort? I'd appreciate any and all the feedback that I can get. I'm also open to other suggestions as well. These 2 just seemed like good fits based on my needs and what I've read about them.
