Worked great on Lion 10.7, but no longer with Mountain Lion 10.8

Such a lovely piece of kit that worked great for me until I upgraded to Mountain Lion. Now there are endless issues.... Sadly I cant "go back" to Lion for software reasons, so am stuck. Focusrite Support have tried to be helpful, but ultimately, there is nothing they can do. So right now, as of this review date. I would AVOID if you're on 10.8.
NB. To be fair, it does say on the Apple site that its only compatible up to 10.7. But of cause, this is not something you're aware of when you hit upgrade. I just presumed that an international company such as Focusrite, would make sure their kit work on the latest Mac Software... I mean, why wouldn't they? Just crazy...! Especially when Apple sell it in their stores.
PS. Works great on my Windows machine, God Bless Microsoft!
This interface has issues with clipping audio. The guitar input has trouble handling the direct input from electric guitars and basses. It just clips. Also, if you are planning to have anything loud come in through a mic that doesn't have a pad built in, it will also clip. This is not just my user experience. For more user complaints re: this issue go look up sound on sound magazine and type 2i2 clipping in the search.
