The Scarlett 2i2 is a 2 in / 2 out USB recording interface featuring two award-winning Focusrite preamps. Sam Ash Direct has the guaranteed lowest price and fast free, shipping.

The Scarlett 2i2 is a 2 in / 2 out USB recording interface featuring two award-winning Focusrite preamps. Housed in an attractive 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 when you travel. The Scarlett 2i2 is much more than just a pretty metal box..

Plug Straight In
The front panel Neutrik combination input can be used to connect line and instrument level signals as well as microphones. This makes it perfect for recording the output of a synthesizer or stage piano, whilst at the flick of a switch you can cater for the output of an electric or acoustic guitar.

Keep An Eye on Your Levels
Unique halo signal 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.

Flexible Monitoring Options
A large monitor dial provides a tactile control for the volume of your speakers, whilst 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. This allows you to monitor the incoming signal with zero-latency.

Polish Your Mix
Inside the box, you’ll find Ableton Live Lite 8, as well as Focusrite’s Scarlett plug-in suite, compatible with all major DAWs. And the Scarlett plug-in suite provides EQ, Compression, Gate and Reverb – essential tools for polishing your mix; so whether you're using Garage Band, Pro Tools 9, Cubase, Logic or the included Ableton Live Lite, Scarlett 2i2 is the complete package for you to get recording straight away.

25 Years of Experience
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 Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. Plenty of available headroom makes it suitable for moving coil, condenser and ribbon microphones regardless of the source. Phantom power is provided for mics that need it.

Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2 in / 2 out USB Recording Interface:

Excellent product. The mic pre-amps are crystal clear and full. The audio playback is simply fantastic. I love it when you don't need to install drivers (though it is recommended). I just plugged it in and was ready to go. The LED halos over the gain knobs is pure class. Absolutely love the scarlet red aluminum unibody chassis. If I had anything to complain about it would have to be that the Line/Inst & Direct Monitoring switches are a little on the fragile-feeling side but other than that can't complain. This is a great interface for the on the go recording musician. It provides excellent mic preamps and excellent audio playback quality.

    Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2 in / 2 out USB Recording Interface:

    I have not had a chance to record instruments through it but I do have it connected with a pair of Yamaha HS50M monitors and they sound great! There was one small problem, I noticed a hum/buzz with these speakers (you know the silly "move windows/mouse around and the speakers buzz") so I bought 2 HOSA 1/4"-1/4" patch cables, and an Ebtech HE-2 Hum Eliminator. Guess what? no more buzzing or humming, the HE-2 kicked the ground loop in the butt.
