Audio Interface for Guitar sims?
 
Hey there guys, I'm mostly a bedroom guitarist now and am looking to upgrade my UR22 mk2. I sold my AX8 and bought one of those cool new Neural DSP plugins (Abasi one) and I feel that for what I enjoy playing (metal/lead stuff) those are more than enough at around 1/10 of the price. Therefore I wanted to upgrade my Audio interface, I narrowed it down to a few:

-UAD Arrow;
- Motu M4;
- SSL2+;
- Axe I/O

Just looking for something so I can practice guitar and record some stuff on Cubase; I got a I5-8400 , 16 gb Ram on Windows 10 x64.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I can recommend the AXE I/O - even if you don’t use AmpliTube (which is pretty good) it has great features for MIDI control etc. The Guitar DI is really great.
The DI on the Audient id12+ are great. The ID4 DI isn’t as good, imo.

Hey man appreciated the answer, how's the latency on that AXE I/O? I'm more worried about latency than anything else really!

Lot of variables - your OS, your host. I use a Mac and Pro Tools. With a 128 sample buffer reported latency is ~12ms - thereabouts. I’m fine with anything under 20ms generally. F
