Which one am I better off utilizing for simply recording vocals for rap?

Interface questions go here.

As far as I'm aware, interfaces don't care too much about what music you're recording..I'd go for the one with the features you need.

Audient makes great lower budget interfaces. I've bypassed my standalone preamps for the sound of the Audient's many times on all types of vocals.. Haven't used the Scarlett.

Will there be a noticeable difference?

The Audient is inarguably the better box. Better pre's, better conversion. to my ears there is a noticeable difference (I moved from a 2i2 to an iD14). But also consider that your mic is going to make a more audible difference, so you might consider that if you're using a cheap mic.

Audient makes great preamps for their interfaces and consoles. Sold a half dozen interfaces and still have the iD14 right here.

No. Audient are IMO the most overhyped, overrated interfaces around. They are good, but not worth the serious additional cost. You will be fine with the Scarlett, esp for just rap.

"esp for just rap"? What kind of disparaging remark is that? Holy crap.

I realize it's all the rage but spare me your hypersensitive indignation. That was not a slight at rap per se. My only point is that acoustics are less demanding for rap than other genres, much like they are for voice overs.

Vocal requirements are pretty much the same across every genre. Rapping sounds boomy in a boomy room, just like singing does, and so on.

“Just” is a very abused word.

It's not "hypersensitive" at all Its called "respect".
