PodGo Vs Scarlett Solo

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am wanting to replace the speakers I have on my PC and will be going for a pair of active studio monitors. 

Initially I thought to go for the Scarlett Solo interface route PG into that and speakers out, USB to PC. 

I have then thought I could save some cash. Get a cheaper desktop mixer for half the price of the solo and use the line out of PC into that and speakers out, using PG as interface for guitar into PC via USB.


Question is, will the Scarlett Solo give me any benefits over the PG as an interface? Better latency, quality etc? Also, any down sides of the mixer approach? 


Thanks all.

Unless you have instruments other than your guitar you don’t need the Solo or the mixer. Just use the POD Go as your interface and connect your studio monitors to its outputs. I don’t think there’s any benefit in terms of latency or quality by using anything else.

For more details see the USB Audio/ MIDI section in the Pod Go manual.

Thanks for the reply.


I don't want to connect speakers direct to PG as part of this is to replace PC speakers as well. 


I do have mild latency issues with the PG as my interface, thinking a dedicated unit may prove better as it's far from pushing PC performance.
