The Clarett series are very nice for recording, but is overly complex for REW.Are the Focusrite Clarett series soundcards compatible with REW?
I'm interested in the 4Pre model. It looks to have a Thunderbolt interface instead of the USB. Is that a problem? My laptop is Asus Zenbook UX31A and it runs on Win8.1. I have been using M-Audio Fast Track Pro with REW for years before, but now I would like to upgrade.
EDIT: I just found out that the Clarett series is currently not compatible with Win8.1, which is a bigger problem in my case. Still, I'm interested in the REW compatibility for the future plans.
Yeah, it's way to complex for reliable easy setup with REW. On-board MIDI is nice, but not necessary, as there are simple/cheap MIDI interface cables available.Thank you gazoink.
Obviously I made my choice too quickly. You are absolutely right - the bus power, light weight, compact size and simplicity are the key specs to me too. I already bought Focusrite 18i8 and noticed rightaway that I have overlooked the bus power question. However, there are features in it I need for other porposes, like Midi, dual head phone outputs, etc. I just have to buy a minimalistic model as well. Luckily they are a bit cheeper too.
I travel a lot to make acoustical measurements for my friends and in some cases for previoustly unknown persons. I even plan to make a small business out of acoustical measurements, room treatment and consultation.
Do you really mean iOS, or Mac OS X? UR22 is compatible with OS X: https://www.steinberg.net/en/support/downloads_hardware/yamaha_steinberg_usb_driver.htmlSteinberg UR22 looks interesting, up to 24/192, midi, bus power. No iOS compatibility, though.

Thanks Wayne,An internet search on “audio interface usb input” gets nothing, even with interfaces costing thousands of dollars, so I doubt such a creature exists. Makes sense when you think about it. The whole purpose of a USB mic is to preclude the necessity of an interface.
Thanks Wayne.Everything I’ve seen says you can’t do timing with a USB mic – sorry.
