What’s the best interface for Mac?

There are many ways to record audio on a Mac but choosing the best way for your workflow means taking some features into consideration. Is it simple to use or do you need to install drivers?

Class compliant – just plug and play

Focusrite audio interfaces make recording with a Mac simple — we have been designing audio interfaces for macOS for decades. Our Scarlett and Clarett+ audio interfaces ranges are both class compliant. There are no additional drivers to install; simply plug in your audio interface. In addition, most of our interfaces are bus powered. This means they work without needing an additional power supply, so that's one less thing to pack for a recording session.
