USB interfaces for basic audio recording

more_vert
I'm looking to start doing some basic home recording and am looking out for budget USB interfaces. Anyone here have any good suggestions in the under $200 range? thank you!

I hear the Scarletts are good but you might also want to consider Behringer's U-Phoria line. UMC202/204HD's under $100. I've been using the UMC22 (basic model) for months now with my guitar and never had any problems. Check out Podcastage on YT for demos. :)

The first that comes to mind is the Scarlett 2i2. It uses the same preamps as their rack mount cousins, and they have a pretty darned good noise floor. The 2nd gen comes in well under your $200 price tag new from the distributor of your choice. A couple of voice actors I know use them.
Steinberg and PreSonus also have interfaces around that price range, though I don't know anything about them.

I have a presonus and a scarlet 2i2 and 2i4. all of which are great interfaces.
