Good interface to buy

Hi all, just like advice on a new interface to use in Mixcraft. Being using a Line 6 UX2 and found it very suitable as I do mostly guitar recordings, and the inbuilt effects seem to work well. Deciding to make a change as my son needs to borrow the UX2,long story, long term. lol Would like something that also has guitar effects built in, but notice that the Presonus ones etc dont appear to have that feature. Also, they appear to come with lite versions of recording software, which obviously would be a waste as I am an avid Mixcraft user, and wont be swaying from that, so more softtware would be a waste. There are a few that I have looked at, but don't appear to have inbuilt effects.

I used to use Line 6 UX2 but now have gone for Focusrite.
The Solo fits my needs o.k.

FOCUSRITE SCARLET---(several versions)------- say no more as It Is ultra reliable ,solid built and easy to get going and far out weigh's anything In it's class. Great for latency and you will be amazed at how low you can get the milliseconds.
My old EMU 0404USB used to stutter and fall over,but my Focusrite Scarlet 6i6 FAULTLESS after a year of use so far.Focusrite have also got good customer service for any questions you may have.
I recommend Focusrite highly

All the best
John

You might consider another Line 6 product. They have some new stuff these days. Not sure I've heard of a guitar effects processor that acts as an audio interface other than Zoom, Line 6, Boss and a few names I'm not at all familiar with. :D

I went from UX2 to an Audient id14 and couldn't be happier. It's a bit more expensive but the preamps are killer and can take 8 additional lines digitally. It doesn't have any modeling software but I bought Amplitube Fender on sale and haven't looked back.

Thanks to all for the replies. I just realized that my Vox Tonelab has a output which I assume should work into Mixcraft, so that should cover anything needed for instruments, just need something to input mics through. So, will look at the Focusrite range of interfaces. I did find that the UX2 didn't have much in it for mic sounds, most were guitar set ups.

Decided on the Focusrite 6i6. With the software that it includes, should be all I need, and more.
