Read what these podcasting pros have to say about their interfaces of choice
“I am stunned and extremely humbled to be one of the winners of this competition, especially to be alongside such talented people.

I've really enjoyed connecting with them and getting to use their amazing gear as well.” - Melanie Scroggins, Creator Speak podcast
“The Scarlett 2i2 is affordable and portable and incredibly easy to use, so it’s become part of our start-up podcast kit that we provide to our producers. No matter what level a producer is at in terms of technical knowledge, the Scarlett is totally user friendly. They can figure it out within minutes, and it never lets them down. The Scarlett 2i2 does everything we need it to, and it does it flawlessly, it would be hard to improve on perfection.” — Mason Lindsey, Tenderfoot.tv
"I heard about [Scarlett] about seven years ago from another podcaster who was using it and said it was great, I’ve been using it ever since. I love how easy it is to use, simple to set up, and the high sound quality, I just plug it into my computer and send the file to my editor. Simple to use, fast, always reliable! You can’t ask for more.” — Lewis Howes, School of Greatness
"[Scarlett 2i2 is] incredibly simple and easy to operate. The things it lets you control are the things that are important to me as a podcaster: sound quality, volume control, portability, and reliability, and it’s not burdened with complexity. It’s become a part of what I do every day, and it does it well. That’s why I use it and recommend to others. In a podcast, all you have is your voice. It has to sound good, and the Scarlett 2i2 makes sure I do.” — Pat Flynn, Smart Passive Income
"I’m a podcaster, not an audio engineer, so I want things to work whenever I need it to work, I need it to be easy, and I need it to work every single time. I need to minimize any kind of complexity so that I can concentrate on the conversation and be present in the moment. Focusrite allows me to do that." — Julian Placino, Pathways to Success
“It’s small, it’s affordable, and it has two microphone inputs, which is exactly what the vast majority of podcasters need, and you know you’ll have great sound right from the start, because of the audio quality that Focusrite brings to it.” — Chris Curran, Podcast Engineering School
"As an audio engineer, keeping things simple is an eternal goal, and in that regard, the Clarett 8Pre USB interface is a godsend. It’s really plug-and-play. It’s simple: plug it in to your USB port, open [your recording software], and it’s there. And aside from all the sonic elements – the sound, the great D to A [conversion], and the ability to run multiple tracks with invisible latency – it’s just super-clean." — John DeLore, Stitcher
