Lower 1st Generation Focusrite latency with 2nd Gen Drivers

Recommended Posts

It's worth noting that the 2nd gen drivers will only work with the Solo, 2i2 & 2i4.

So they won't work with the 6i6, 18i8 or 18i20.

Yes that's because 6i6 and upwards all use the Mix Control and have different firmware etc. They updated the Mix control software for the 2nd gen. 

It probably works on the lowest 3 models because they didn't really change the hardware much.

I’ve got the 2i4 so I’ll give it a go.

Do you currently use Mix Control (for cue mixes)? If so, I'd be interested in your take on the difference between that and Focusrite Control, which comes with the 2nd gen driver. Either way, let us know what you think.

The 2i4 doesn't use MixControl - only 6i6 and above do.

Yes, as stated the 2i4 doesn’t have mix control.

Still interested in whether you get better performance.
