iTrack Dock vs Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interfaces

iTrack Dock vs Scarlett 2i2

I'm a songwriter and mainly I record vocals and guitar on Garageband. I bought a Scarlett 2i2 and admittedly was intimidated at trying it with Ableton.

Then I gave up and bought an iTrack Dock (iPad) which was easy to use with Garageband and has been fine for my needs. I generally write on Garageband and once I'm all set, I duplicate my performance and record in a professional studio.

But now I'm starting to add to my home studio and I wonder if I have to step things up... and I'm thinking maybe I don't want/need to go to a professional studio for every song but still want quality production.

I have a 2015 MacbookPro, and recently I purchased a lofi sampler and a keyboard controller.

Should I sell my Scarlett 2i2 and stick with iTrack + Garageband or hang on to my Scarlett 2i2 and move on from Garageband?

Keep the scarlet and download a free DAW ,like Cakewalk from Bandlab. Its not intimidating, it just take s 30 minutes of reading and leanring to connect an interface to a pc. Its not brain surgery, its actually very easy.

The DAW learning curve is what may take time, but you can get going in 30 minutes and learn to record overdub, add effects and playback within 30 minutes
