This interface is the first I ever bought and the only one I have ever used in 3 years of owning a home studio. I've gotten nothing but high quality recordings with it every time I've used it, and it allows me to do so many convenient things that aid my recording process along tremendously. Most significant of all are the headphone jack and line outputs, which allow me to plug my headphones in and hook it up to a pair of monitors at the same time. This is extremely convenient for me because after I record something, I can turn up the headphone knob to listen to it through headphones and mix it, then turn up the output knob when I'm done mixing to share it with multiple other listeners. Nothing has to be disconnected or turned off in the process. Also, the fact that there are line inputs in the middle of the XLR inputs makes it super easy to plug in my guitar and record straight to my DAW, Logic Pro X. At $150, this solid workhorse of an interface will satisfy any home recording artist without ever needing a replacement.
