Hello, before I spend alot of money on a guitar interface, What would be a good one to use for Bias fx and playing with headphones ? like practicing and playing for fun.

I'm very happy with my Focusrite Scarlett 6i6. The 2i2 or 2i4 should do well enough for BIAS, however. The only difference is the amount of ins and outs. The 2i2 doesn't have a pad either, which you might want. I'd get the 2i4 if budget allows it, but the 2i2 would be fine as well.

Lowers the signal coming in. If you strum hard and have high-output pickups, the pre-amps can be too sensitive. The pad lowers the input that comes in by 10dB.

For instance, if I strum hard on my EMG-equipped guitar, the signal coming in is still too hot even with the pre-amp gain almost at zero. Enabling the pad gives more room to dial in the input gain.

IIRC 6i6 does but you need a special cable from apple to connect. The info is on the focusrite website.


The 2i4 might work but I believe it takes a few extra steps to get it fully working on Ipad.

Yeah the 2i4 supports windows 7 so it was a perfect choice
