Decision: Steinberg UR44C or Focusrite Scarlett 18i8?

Post by Zippydog » Mon May 11, 2020 9:31 am

I'm trying to decide which of the two above interfaces will be easiest to use with Auria. I think both CAN work, but Focusrite seems to distance themselves from ipad application and don't have any ipad friendly setup software. Steinberg, on the other hand makes a point of being class compliant and offers some ipad software. In the case of the Focusrite, I believe its usable, but I'd have to set up the unit on a PC before installation in an iOS environment. I've had a Focusrite previously that worked with Auria, so I'm really torn on going back to Focusrite or nabbing a potentially more compatible device in the Steinberg.

My use will be with an iPad Pro 12.9"/2018. The interface would be home use only and used pretty much exclusively with Auria.

Thoughts or pros/cons on these two pieces? Is there another I should be considering?
