Audio interface suggestions, please

Dear everybody,

at home I'm working with a Focusrite Scarlett 8i6, MacBook Pro Lion 8 GB RAM, APC40. I am looking for a portable audio interface to take with me for gigs.

I am looking for 2in/2out plus headphone out, high quality audio, low latency, light-weight.

I'm considering

- Focusrite Forte

- Apogee Duet 2

- Motu 16

- Focusrite 2i2.


Advice on what to buy considering the above needs would be highly appreciated.

Thanks big time to everybody for their 5 cents.

    What you have is fine. Why not just push the buffer rate down to 64? However, Apogee and Motu are known to be better than the best.
