My first USB Audio Interface

Mathias Nielsen, 31.01.2018
My 2i4 2nd gen has been working flawlessly for the 1? years I've had it. It's definitely great for the home studio or someone just starting to record music.
I use the 2i4 for my home studio, using the ins for my microphone primarily, sometimes my guitar or bass. I have a keyboard plugged into the MIDI-in for use in my DAW. I also use it for everything else I do on the computer, that is playing games and communications (Skype, Discord, TeamSpeak). On that note, it works flawlessly for the most part. A year ago I had trouble with the compability between Discord and the 2i4, but it was resolved shortly after and never had problems with it again.
If you want to use a lot of midi in/outputs, this is not the choice. I only have 1 MIDI keyboard hooked up to it, and that's all there's space for. It does have a MIDI-out as well, but that's left unused for me.
For everything else, this is such a brilliant audio interface if you don't need to record a lot of instruments at once, and I couldn't recommend it enough!

Excellent Linux-friendly interface

JCS84, 24.07.2018
For someone like me who primarily plays guitar and relies on drum plugins, this 2-in/4-out interface is more than enough. The device is very sturdy and seems very durable, and the electronics, jacks, preamps, etc. appear to be high quality.
Latency can be set incredibly low already but it has the option to monitor the inputs directly. My favorite feature however is that all controls (dB padding, phantom power, line/instrument switch) are hardware buttons so it doesn't need any additional software. This means it is extremely Linux friendly, unlike the higher-end models that come with a nice mixer that requires additional, proprietary software available only for Windows and Mac OS X (as of 07/2018). This device is Class Compliant so in Linux it is true plug and play.
At this level and for this amount of money you really can't go wrong with this particular interface.
