Due to their inherent difference in design, bass guitars still require a dedicated amplifier. You just can’t use a standard electric guitar amp for bass for a number of very important reasons. We have covered the best bass guitar amplifiers in a dedicated section, but it’s worth mentioning that these amps also come in a whole variety shapes and forms. Power outputs are going to be a lot higher as well. It is not that uncommon to find bass guitar amps that are capable of delivering 1000 Watts or more. One good example of high output amps is the Ampeg SVT-7 Stack . Choosing the right bass amp requires more or less the same selection process as standard electric guitar amps.
We really like sticking with just five recommendations for the best audio interface, and we wanted to avoid putting three Focusrite models in the same guide. However, going by our research and the total number of tallies each interface got, 5th place rightfully belongs to the Scarlett 6i6. Given the popularity of Focusrite’s Scarlett 2i2 and 2i4 interfaces, it makes sense that the 6i6 comes highly recommended as well, particularly by those who have a need for more inputs. The 6i6 comes with two mic preamps like its smaller siblings, a stereo line input, and a S/PDIF I/O for connecting a digital source. If you’re making music with a friend, with the 6i6 each of you gets a dedicated headphone output with separate volume controls. It also has four balanced outputs, meaning you have the ability to connect two pairs of studio monitor speakers (this would allow you to test your mix on both pairs of monitors, as many producers tend to do).
