The Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 is a 2x4 USB audio interface featuring two of Focusrite's award-winning mic preamps, 24-bit/96kHz resolution, instrument inputs, precision DA/AD converters and a tough, yet beautiful aluminum housing.

The Scarlett 2i4 is solid enough to take on the road when you travel, but it's so much more than just a pretty metal box.

On the front panel, XLR/TRS 1/4" combination jacks from Neutrik are provided for microphone, line and instrument inputs, ideal for recording a stage piano or synth, or just flick the switch to match the signal from an electric guitar.

Professional Grade Sound
The digital converters capture your performance with professional standard 24-bit resolution at sample rates of up to 96kHz. Hooking it all up is as easy as connecting it to your  Mac or PC via USB (USB cable supplied) and hitting "Record." Since the 2i4 is USB Bus-powered, you don't need a power supply.

The halos around the gain knobs serve as meters as well, making it possible for you to precisely set your levels safely with unique gain halos that are green when the level is right and turn red if the signal's too loud. The direct monitor switch allows you to instantly hear exactly what you’re recording with no latency.

Connect your headphones and speakers and use the large volume dial to set the perfect level with Scarlett's exceptional dynamic range of over 105dB. Built tough and designed to be compact, it travels in your backpacks and withstands the bumps of the road.

Also included on the 2i4 are standard MIDI I/O connectors to operate keyboards and send MIDI-based function messages to software and instruments.

Software to get started, software to finish
Included with the Scarlett 2i4 is Ableton Live Lite software and Focusrite’s Scarlett plug-in suite, which is compatible with all major DAWs. The plug-in suite gives you Reverb, Compression, Gate and EQ to mix your music professionally, whether you use Garage Band, Pro Tools, Digital Performer, Cubase, Logic or the included Ableton Live Lite, all within minutes of opening the box.

  • High Quality Mic Preamps

            Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio Interface:

            The Scarlett 2i4 is the upgraded version of the best-selling 2i2 as this unit now has the options of 4 outputs instead of 2 and the use of MIDI in/out with the interface. Now using your extrenal MIDI controller or USB controller is super easy and fast. The included Ablton Lite 8 is great product and really gets you going in the right direction. Two Thumbs Up!

              This was the perfect choice with the sleek design and high quality converters.
              Smart choice for the home studio and pros alike.

                  Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio Interface:

                  The 2I4 is a phenomenal Audio Interface. It allows you to record through 2 channels while keeping up with a 24 bit recording speed that allows you not to lose quality along the way. The interface has two hybrid input channels that allow you to use XLR or 1/4" inputs into the channel without sacrificing space on the interface itself. Great for a producer looking to continue or start recording, especially through Ableton!

                    This USB interface is absolutely killer! It works well for recording at home, but is compact and versatile enough to get decent recordings on the road. It features two channels with high quality mic preamps, individual gain control, and pads for live settings. An absolutely killer unit!

                      If you are looking for a good affordable interface and don't need to record more then 2 channels at a time this is a great deal. Works for everything from home recording and song production to recording a stereo live mix for live recording or to sync with video later on. If you are using a laptop you can pretty much record anywhere. I am a reviewer for sam ash
