4 out of 5 - Honest review after 2 months of use - READ


Hi Samashersss!! So long story Focusrite 2i4 died on me after 2 years of daily use, getting It fix wasn't an option ( Focusrite charges 85$ for any kind of replacement + shipping ). I decided to get a new one and I was about to purchase the newer Focusrite model when I saw this interface at the store and really liked the colors and the solid build, and I decided to give it a shot. So in my personal opinion as a Music Producer, and sound Engineer I can say Presonus got a winner here... the ONLY downside of this interface is the latency, with my old Focusrite 2i4 I was able to get around 5-8 ms. And I was very use to it, now with the Presonus I need to adjust the Ms to 10-12ms to get a decent playback. ( without click and pops ). I know it's nothing related to my computer specs, because I have a very VERY powerful computer with SSD and all the latest gear, if presonus fix this latency issue in the near future then they got a loyal costumer here, otherwise I will stick to Focusrite products. That's it... That's my personal opinion and it's the kind of reviews I like to read when I'm About to buy something. Clear and honest. Well... take care anyone who's reading this review and have a wonderful day with your music! Ps ; DAW's - Presonus Studio - Fl Studio 12
