a good looking setup?
Hi there,
hopefully I've put this in the right place.

Looking to replace my 003.

Thinking I'll buy the Avid S1 with the Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 (3rd Generation) as the audio interface. Connected to a iMac 2017 running Catalina and Pro Tools 19.12.

Can anyone see a compatibility issue in there? I've been burnt too many times so want to double check.

Also, the Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 (3rd Generation) is USB2 not Thunderbolt. Is that a concern (thinking long term)?

I typically work solo, recording mics, keys and Midi.

Thanks in advance

Yes, this section of the DUC is specific to the DUET and QUARTET interfaces. Repost in the the section for Pro Tools 22019/2020 to get the most traffic, OR choose either the Windows or Mac sections(I see you are on a Mac). Given that you have thunderbolt, I would look for a thunderbolt interface as that will give the best performance when it comes to latency(Focusrite makes several if that's your preferred brand). Presonus also has several TB interfaces:o
