My M audio Fastrack pro has seen better days, so looking for a new audio interface. I'm just starting a new recording project to get some motivation.

Now as far as I can see I only need 2 inputs, for when I record vocals and guitar at once (usually scratch tracks) and don't see that I need more than 2 outputs for stereo, as the only hardware I use is the Axe Fx and I don't think I'll go down the route of re-amping.

One thing I didn't like with the M-audio is if I tried using a guitar amp plug in I'd always hear the un-effected sound as well as the effected one, something to do with the monitoring so one that had more options if I decide to use some software amps would be nice. And something faster than USB 1 seeing as it's 2017.

I've used the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 which should do the trick. Any others?

Plugins can get expensive so let's start a list of the your go to plugins for recording and mixing. Include a one line review too! Add categories as needed.

Virtual Instruments

Software Amps



Vocal Processors

I thought a discussion about building arrangements for songs would be really good.

Often we focus on soloing etc, but the ideas for layered guitar parts, bass parts and how they help a song progress or fill out often doesn't get talked about.

I'm thinking about taking a simple chord progressions like I V vi IV and recording different ideas to help me with my song writing

Anyone want to chime in ?

Pros - Prestige, Ibanez Edge, Maple neck, classic dimarzio HSH pickup set, hard case Cons - Most expensive of the 3, I'd quite like an RG without a pickguard.

Pros - No pickguard, cool finish, classic dimarzio HSH pickup set. Maple fretboardm Stainless Steel Frets Cons - nearly as expensive as the Prestige, Edge II Zero (not as recommended as the orignial edge)
Pros - Cheapest of the 3, cool finish, Basswood/maple combination body Cons - Rosewood fretboard, Edge Zero II trem, softcase, IBZ pickup set

So I'm going to try yet again to sell my lovely Japanese Les Paul Clone
