    Hello! I'm choosing an audio interface to play/record my electric guitar in garageband. I would appreciate your help..

    So, what I need:

    - one mac compatible audio interface with lowest latency (usb or firewire)
    - two guitar inputs so i could record/play with my friend
    - price... to be honest, i don't want to spend more than $400

    That all. I would be very glad if some one could help me) Thank you!!

    p.s. anyone have experience in using icon firexon??

    For that price, I would consider the Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 DSP.

    Decent preamps (as good as you will get for an integrated box at this price), good management software for near zero-latency monitoring, VRM built in, and under $400. Hard to go wrong.

    None of the boxes in that price range are going to be drastically different. I would focus on buying boxes with good builds and good driver support (Focusrite, MOTU).
