Focusrite Vocaster Two Studio - Podcasting Interface for Recording Host & Guest

8.5

8.5/10

I actually liked the Focusrite Vocaster Two Studio a lot. I had been searching for something more simple to replace my Rodecaster Pro 2, which is great itself, but for a solo podcaster doing mostly remote sessions, it was overkill. Overall, I landed on trying the Vocaster Two because of the improved sample rate over the PodTrak P4, which protects me in case we expand to more videos.

I’ve used this for a little over a week on a handful of shows and was enjoying it, however, I wasn’t a fan of using sound pads externally on my iPad. If Vocaster had its own internal sound pads, it would take it to the near-perfect territory. I wasn’t a fan of the over-aggressive processing, but I do appreciate that Focusrite now lets you make adjustments within the software to tame the over-processed presets.

One thing that was apparent, at least on my unit, was that even when all processing is off, there is still some sort of high-pass filter that cannot be turned off. I compared this to my other interfaces to be sure, and there is a noticeable amount of bass present on the others compared to the Vocaster. That isn’t necessarily bad – in fact, for those hoping to do little post-processing and using a dynamic mic within 3 inches of their face and battling proximity, that may be a selling point. But I prefer to have the option, which didn’t appear to be – a choice on Vocaster Two. I’m curious if others experience something similar.

Also, when running a TRRS cable to my iPad, there was noticeable feedback when touching the iPad. That is probably a result of the cable itself, but it left me with the option to run the iPad through the Bluetooth channel, but the slight delay bugged me when playing sounds. Not a dealbreaker, but it was part of my ultimate decision.

Overall, I think the Focusrite Vocaster Two Studio is perfect for someone who needs two inputs and wants some processing present to just start their show. I don’t think you can go wrong with this.
