Ok so, as the thread states i need help for metal recording (guitar) with a EMG set of 81 and 85 active pickups. I can choose between the Solo Pack (headphones and mic), 2i2 and 2i4 for the money i have. I recorded yesterday with an 2i4 for the first time but it has the pad function that reduces the signal by 10db. Now getting the solo pack would be best for my needs but i don't know if it can handle the emg's. I need help from you experienced guys in choosing the right focusrite scarlett for the job.
