Solid State Logic SSL 2 by TheKingslayer
My progression reads Scarlett 2i2 2nd gen (okay)
Apogee Duet 2 (excellent)
Universal Audio Apollo (a different league)
Now onto the SSL 2
My studio had a recent break in which left me with almost nothing, after getting a temporary pc my next step was an interface. Not being able to afford an Apollo I seen this recently released. Bought it from KMR in England, dealt with a wonderful salesperson in Nick Stringer. In Ireland I would highly recommend KMR over Thomann.
Anyway onto the product itself, when loading up songs on Spotify the difference between this and the focusrite is massive, the converters sound excellent and id say above the duet also. Not the Apollo however but the difference isn't hugely noticeable. The preamps are a huge upgrade on both the focusrite and duet, the legacy 4k switch really does sound like SSL console harmonics. The Apollo preamps again just shade it with unison and all that.
For the money I think its crazy the quality on display. I will get an Apollo again quite soon but until then Im more than happy with this excellent interface
