Focusrite

The 2 in/2 out USB recording interface for musicians on the go.

Mobile recording is at an all-time high and you need an audio interface that can maintain optimal performance at any moment when inspiration strikes. The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is the right tool for the job. With two award-winning Focusrite preamps packed into a compact, anodized aluminum uni-body chassis, the Scarlett 2i2 not only produces professional quality sound but also looks great doing it. For more than 25 years, Focusrite has designed some of the most popular microphone preamps in the industry. This experience has been used to create the transparent, low-noise and low-distortion preamp found in the Scarlett 2i2. Plenty of available headroom makes it suitable for moving coil, condenser and ribbon microphones regardless of the source. Phantom power is also provided for mics that need it.

The 2-in, 2-out USB interface for musicians
The Scarlett 2i2 is a 2-in / 2-out USB recording interface featuring dual award-winning Focusrite preamps and precision digital conversion. Housed in a rugged anodised aluminium unibody chassis, the interface not only sounds fantastic but looks great too. What’s more, it’s solid enough to take on the road. And inside is 30 years of pro audio design expertise.

30 years of mic pre experience
Since 1985, when Rupert Neve designed those first modules for Sir George Martin’s AIR Studios, Focusrite has designed some of the most popular microphone preamps in the industry. This experience is behind the transparent, low-noise and low-distortion preamp found not only in the Scarlett 2i2 but also our flagship Firewire interface, the Liquid Saffire 56. Plenty of available headroom makes 2i2 suitable for any type of microphone, of any vintage. Phantom power is provided at the touch of a button for mics that need it.

Plug straight in

Use the front panel high quality XLR/jack combination inputs to connect line and instrument level signals as well as microphones – perfect for recording a synth or stage piano, or at the flick of a switch, an electric or acoustic guitar.

Check your levels at a glance

Unique “halo” indicators let you know that you’ve got a good signal level for recording. Red means that your signal is clipping, and that you should reduce the gain. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the level returns to a healthy level, at which point it will turn green.

Precision conversion
At the heart of Scarlett 2i2 is Focusrite’s precision digital conversion, ensuring you get the very best quality into and out of your computer. Focusrite has been building converters since the introduction of its mastering converter in 1993, and our careful choice of components and equally careful board design ensure that you get superior low noise and distortion performance.

Flexible monitoring options
A large monitor dial provides a tactile control for monitor speaker volume, while a high quality headphone amp provides a clean yet loud signal to headphones connected to the front panel socket. The direct monitor switch routes audio directly from the inputs to both the headphone and speaker outputs, letting you monitor the incoming signal with zero-latency.



Note: Includes the Focusrite Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-In Suite (AAX/AU/VST) upon registration of interface. Accurately modeled on the classic Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor, the Red plug-ins let you exploit the sound of the hardware originals, conveniently from within Pro Tools (10 and above) and other audio software.

    Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface:

    Preamps sound better than my M-Audio MobilePre. The Ableton Live is easy to use but very limited compared to my Cakewalk Sonar Producer. I had to send this unit back because it made a loud noise when I recorded stereo with my Cakewalk Sonar. I think it will probably work well for 99% of other users. Nice Product.

    Great entry level Audio Interface

    By 

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface:

    The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2 in 2 out Audio Interface is a great entry level unit. However I am NOT a big fan of Ableton Live Lite 8 Recording software that came with the unit. Not the kind of learning curve I anticipated and found it to be very non-user friendly. I would suggest/recommend using either Audacity(a free download)or Mixcraft 5 recording software. My preference is Mixcraft 5 as the learning curve is great and it is a very user friendly recording software.

    Great starter Audio Interface/Recording Software SUCKS

    By 

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface:

    This is really a great starter audio interface especially if you are a soloist. This will give you all the leverage you will ever need. I cannot say much about the included recording software which is Ableton Live Lite 8 which I personally think SUCKS. I found using Audacity or Mixcraft 5 a much better recording software and very much more user friendly. I suggest Mixcraft 5 myself personally over Audacity but it depends mainly on what you are really looking for.
