Hey guys,

I've recently gone ahead and ordered a AT2035 mic. I knew I needed an audio interface so I could begin recording to the PC, so I did my research. After about a week or so, I came to two choices. The Native Instruments KA 6, and the Roland Quad Capture.

And it's here where I'm stuck. I've found no direct comparison reviews of any sort between the two, and user experience online shows both to be rock solid, stable and with low latency. I'm just wondering if one has higher quality over the other, and if one colours the sound less or something, and so-forth. I'm hoping that someone here has experience with one (or both, ideally) and can give input as to how they found it. I'm dead set on either one at this point, just finding out which one is the problem! The bundled software they come with won't be an issue for me. Just looking for the highest quality USB interface out of those two.

Thanks.

Both interfaces will easily do your job. I'd personally go for the Roland for big name + no tacky shiny top with button.

Slightly off-topic: If all you need is a good USB audio interface with an excellent microphone pre-amp, why not take a look at the cheaper Focusrite Scarlett 2i2? I have mine set up as a pre-amp and ADC for my condenser mic with headphone or 2x genelec monitors and it works like a charm. Build quality is nice, too.

Cheers,
Peter
