Will a Focusrite 2i2 allow me to play Guitar Rig 5 and Media Monkey at the same time?

#1
I'm presently using an iRIG UA to use with Guitar Rig 5 on my windows 7 laptop.  

However when I try to use Media Monkey to play an mp3 I get no sound unless I close Guitar Rig 5.

Seems like my iRIG UA can only be used by one device at a time.  its either one or the other but not both.  

Will a Focusrite 2i2 allow me to use both Guitar Rig 5 and Media Monkey?

I just tried it an the Focusrite 2i2 can play both Guitar Rig 5 and Media Monkey at the same time.  
However I noticed some pops at 512 buffer size.  I wonder if the device is getting enough power from the USB port.
