$100-200 limit for interface?

What do you guys recommend? Latency wise, and all that. I'm running a i5-2500k

Focusrite just today announced a new scarlett 2i4 - it's the same as 2i2 except with some RCA on the back for DJing or FX inserts, and has MIDI in/out now. Should retail at like $150 I'd expect - either that, or wait til it comes out then get a 2i2 that should come down in price.

Of course, what are you recording, and how? Mixer? need 8 pres? etc etc?

If you want basic sound card that's better than stock and can run mics, I vote 2i2/2i4 I got the 2i2 and the pre's are like any focusrite studio pre's, super clean, gain up to around +60dB I think. Bus powered, and aluminum so it doesn't mind being in a back pack.

Right now i'm looking at 3 interfaces.

Avid Mbox 3 Mini
Focusrite Saffire 6 Usb?
and That 2i2.
What's the difference between saffire 6 and the 2i2?

Saffire 6 looks all around better IMO. I like the design of the box and layout.

I'm gonna be recording just mostly rap vocals. A little later down the line, guitar/bass

would it also benefit getting a mic preamp to plug into the interface? and a compressor?
