Choosing the right audio interface + preamps

Hey, I'm looking for a audio interface + nice preamps for recording my Elektron Analog Rytm, DSI Prophet 08 and Avantone cv-12.

My budget is around $1.000 USD.


My options so far are the following:

A) Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 + Focusrite OctoPre Mk II;

or

B) Audient iD14 + Audient ASP800.


Any thoughts?

Best

While I have no experience with either products I was interested in both the saffire and ID range.
With that being said my research has concluded the ID series is a step up from both the saffire and scarlett range and includes much better preamps and converters. Also if you get the ASP800 you also will get the HMX and IRON vintage channels which will allow you to do some tone shaping.
Depending on your I/O needs the Audient route seems like a no brainer.
Do you need 16 inputs? will 10 be enough?
Also you need to note that the ID14 will have less routing options available than the saffire. However, you could always step up to the ID22 should you need more.
