I’ve been thinking about downsizing my studio (less big gear, more small gear) and was looking into using the CI2+ as my main interface. Since I rarely record any audio, all I really need is a small interface to be used primarily for monitoring playback. With the addition of transport/shuttle controls and an AI knob, this seems like the perfect solution for the price.
So my question is, how do the drivers and sound quality compare with other comparable interfaces? How does it match up against Avid/Digidesign/M-Audio interfaces? MOTU? Cakewalk? Lexicon? Focusrite?
Thanks in advance.
