I like the Apogee Duet:).
Very nice if you can justify spending that much, but they are 4 or 5 times the price of some other very good interfaces - I think I'd rather spend the additional ££'s on better monitors or room treatment , or something like Sonarworks personally as the interface isn't usually the weakest link even with a budget model. But they are up there with the best if that's what you want and they are in your budget.

Not been working in the music industry but want to do something in music, in my retirement years to supplement my income or better. I have over the years put money into equipment. Not a lot and mostly in software. Now that I'm focusing in on doing something (still a few years away from that retirement age but now thinking I'm about 5 years late) I'm discovering I have more software resources than I'll ever use and it's a lot to figure out what best to use and how, regarding TAXI listings.

I recall years ago I did something with a decent free midi editor and my first taste of Cubase (7.0). I understand Steve Barden has a minimal setup with older software and does plenty of production music.

Learning how the business works are itself time-consuming, but now the overload of plenty of software-based resources inclusive of libraries.

So, has anyone else found themselves in a resource overload that got past it and became production music accomplished?

Any tips on sorting through resources to narrow down to a smaller often used toolset?

Edited to add:
I don't think there are any shortcuts or tips. That leaves me learning what tools I have or would be better with, which are the better ones to put on a shortlist, perhaps genre noted, and how best to use them.
I suppose this is one of the facets of forever learning.
