Default Interface USB for WIN10 PT2018. What's the best choice?

Hi!

I am trying to search a good to great interface for Pro Tools 2018. I am on Win10. The price between $350 to $500.

The interface should be USB, 2 inputs (mic and instrument in total). So a good quality w/t no driver problems.

Please, if You have experience on this or you know about the issue, let me know.

What about Audient iD22?

I use a NI KA6 and it works perfectly on Windows 10

Been using the Komplete Audio 6 lately too and it's great.

There's a ton of great audio interfaces in that price range. Focusrite Scarletts, NI Komplete Audio 6, the Audient you mentioned, the Eleven Rack is in that price range now, Presonus has many interfaces in that range. For your price range I would really go with something that has more I/O.

Audient seems to currently have a driver issue with WINDOWS 10 so I would steer clear for now. RME has a reputation for the best drivers. MOTU, Presonus and Focusrite would be my next batch to look into

I know this isn't Win10 but, you might like to consider Steinberg's UR44 I have found it to be a solid performer on both Win7 and mOS High Sierra 10.13.6 with both Pro Tools and Cubase.... actually I found Pro Tools found it and sets it up for you where as in Cubase your have to do that yourself mostly.

As you are on Win you may take a serious look at RME products.
Yeah, they aren't cheap but they have been the best interfaces for Win systems for decades and they still are the best as for drivers and compatibility.

Following your description and requirements check out this one. Its a bit beyond your price range but its definitely worth it in the long run. RME...still
the best Win drivers and the best support for Win systems on the market.

And offering professional sound quality of course.

Cheers.
