Here is a normalized version of the same clips:

List of the clips:
Clip 1: interface
Clip 2: mixer to interface
clip 3: art voice channel to interface.
Checked only on tracking headphone, so might be missing some subtlety, but I hear no significant difference at all between the first two. The third has a litte more room, did you move the mic or had some compression going on in the channel strip?
No, the channel strip has the compressor off and the eq bypassed. The only thing active is the input and output gain. It does have a variable impedance knob which is set to 3k which would be the same for the Yamaha and the Scarlett 18i8. The mic was not moved, just plugged into the different inputs. Same mic, guitar, cables, sat in the exact same place.
