Compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, the Forte features a colour OLED display for monitoring your recordings, as well as two of Focusrite's renowned RedNet remote-controlled microphone preamps and super clean converters.
In this short interview, Jonny Quinn from the band Snow Patrol explains why he loves his Forte for recording acoustic demos and capturing new ideas.
First there was the Apogee Duet... then came the Focusrite Forte! Two compact interfaces with very similar designs, detailed OLED monitoring and both boasting extremely high-quality converters and microphone preamps. But, with products of such similar specs, which do you go for?
To help solve this conundrum, the guys at Pro Tools Expert have made an extremely handy comparison video, where they discuss the physical and practical differences between the interfaces and even provide downloadable stems so that you can hear recordings from each and decide which you prefer for yourself. Very handy indeed!
The 2-in 4-out Focusrite Forte is a professional USB interface that has received rave reviews since its release. Its super-clean RedNet preamps and detailed OLED monitoring display, as well as its class leading conversion have led to many reviewers declaring it superior to the popular Apogee Duet 2 and the fact that the Forte can be used on both Mac and PC platforms means that it's more universal than some of its competitors. If you're after a high-quality compact interface that can be used in the studio or on the road, then the Forte has just got to be considered!
For customers buying a Forte from today and throughout June and July, we've got some rather exciting news... during this period you can grab a Forte for just £339, equating to a saving of £60! This makes the Forte by far the cheapest interface in its class. Now that's got to be worth shouting about!
