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.

I'd go for the NI box for 2 main reasons.

NI's headline products are software based. Traktor is the industry standard beatmatching/DJ application. They are not going to skimp on the quality of the interface if it risks sales on profitable software.

It's also got significantly connection options. You might not appreciate how useful you will find them now but I'd be very surprised if you didn't find a use for them. I went from 2 in/4 out to 10 in/14 out very quickly.

That said I have no direct experience of either product. I have had other stuff from both companies in the past and had no problems with either.
