The Focusrite Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Studio USB Audio Interface has all you need to make pro- quality music: a large diaphragm condenser mic, closed-back headphones and a dual mic pre 2i2 interface for crystal clear studio-quality audio.

The world's number one audio interface
Scarlett 2i2 is the best selling USB audio interface in the world, and for good reason. We've focussed on three things; achieving the best sound, the fastest speed and the easiest experience. The latest generation is improved in all three areas. It is compact yet versatile, with two natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, super-low latency* and the same class-leading sound quality and digital conversion as the rest of the latest Scarlett range.

Connect the large diaphragm CM25 condenser mic, plug in your guitar or a second microphone, and immediately capture studio-quality sound. Plug in the HP60 closed-back headphones for honest playback without any distracting background noises. Connect your speakers, crank up the volume and totally immerse yourself in sound.

* Super-low roundtrip latency was measured at 2.74ms, working at 96kHz with a 32 samples buffer on Logic Pro X, running on a Mac Pro and OS 10.11

New Generation - Better in every way
The latest generation Scarlett range is packed full of upgrades. New super-low latency* will bring confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. New metal gain controls and a sleeker red metal chassis underscore its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere. The Scarlett range also now operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz, and the input channels have evolved too.

The latest Scarlett mic preamp features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned so it can handle seriously hot guitar pick-ups. Finally, Focusrite have provided analogue protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.

All you need to record anywhere
Compact and portable enough to take anywhere, you won't even need a power supply; Scarlett 2i2 is connected and powered by a single USB cable. Scarlett 2i2 works with all major DAWs on Mac and PC. It also comes with the software and effects you need to start recording; an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack, Ableton Live Lite, the Softube Time and Tone Bundle, Focusrite's Red Plug-In Suite, Novation's Bass Station virtual instrument and 2GB of Loopmasters samples.

AVID PRO TOOLS | FIRST
Included with every Scarlett 2nd Gen audio interface, Pro Tools | First brings you all the main features and workflow of the industry standard Pro Tools 12 in an entry level music making package designed to get the novice producer, instrumentalist or singer-songwriter up and recording in no time.

FOCUSRITE CREATIVE PACK
Also bundled with your Scarlett 2nd Gen audio interface, the Focusrite Creative Pack adds 12 powerful plugins to Pro Tools | First, all taken from Avid’s acclaimed Eleven Rack.

Awesome guitar tones are just a few clicks away with Eleven Lite, Focusrite’s exclusive cut-down edition of the Eleven MK II amp simulator. And if that doesn’t give you the edge and bite you’re after, follow it up with Black Op Distortion, a superb emulation of the Pro Co Rat pedal. Another classic stomp box reborn in software, Gray Compressor delivers the easy dynamics shaping of the Ross Compressor, and makes the perfect partner to the five-band Graphic EQ.

Focusrite Creative Pack doesn’t skimp on the more out-there signal processing, either, with Flanger, Vibe Phaser, Roto Speaker and Sci-Fi Ring Modulator serving up a spectacular range of mind-bending modulation-based treatments.Topping the collection off are the speed-up/slow-down effects of Vari-Fi Speed Shifter, the classy algorithmic ambience of Studio Reverb, the old-school delays of Tape Echo and – last but by no means least – the essential utility of InTune Digital Tuner.

Get everything you need in one big studio pack now, and there will be nothing stopping you!

Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2I2 Studio Usb Audio Interface (2Nd Gen):

The Focusrite Scarletts are the real deal. Very high quality digital audio that comes from these high octane phantom powered preamps. Combo jacks for any mic or instrument cable that you want to lay down some tracks with. I would highly recommend this package deal to anyone looking to get their digital recording experience off to a hot start. The headphones and condenser mic are a huge bonus! Comes with Pro Tools First and Ableton Live Lite so you'll be able to get a real feel for what its like to have a quality DAW.

    With home recordings becoming more popular, it is important to get good quality even if you are doing basic demoes at your place. The Scarlett 2I2 bundle is perfect for this reason.

    Great for new home recordists

    Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2I2 Studio Usb Audio Interface (2Nd Gen):

    Focusrite has been in the business for decades and is known for its high end studio products like preamps, consoles, channel strips, etc. Since entering the game of computer based recording they have consistently churned out some great bang for the buck products and are now one of the most popular audio interfaces on the market. This package is great if you are starting from scratch with computer based recording. You get a lite version of Pro Tools recording software one of the industry standards, a decent condenser microphone that can handle just about any instrument or vocal application with ease, a decent set of headphones so you can hear what you are tracking and mixing, and a mic cable giving you all the tools you need to get recording right away. The best part though is that along with all this Focusrite products are reliable and sound great. You'll get all kinds of wonderful bonus content with Focusrite plugins and if you register your product Focusrite even has a plugin program now that sends great plugins from a myriad of different companies every month for free. Check this out if you are looking to dive into home recording on your computer.

    2i2 pack

    By 

    from Cincinnati

    Staff Reviewer

    Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2I2 Studio Usb Audio Interface (2Nd Gen):

    The 2i2 studio pack gives you a great quality system without having to spend a ton of money. It comes with a mic, cable and a setup of headphones to get you started. It also comes with Pro Tools First, which contains many of the effects that are straight out of their Eleven Rack. Low latency is a big factor which saves time and frustration when recording. The 2i2 is low latency, while the effects in Pro Tools happen in real time as well, which greatly helps out while in the midst of recording. Great for the beginning engineer or someone who needs a great product, but tends to travel and has to keep gear at a minimum.

    Pros

    • All-in-one
    • Easy to use

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Vocal Recording

      Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2I2 Studio Usb Audio Interface (2Nd Gen):

      This is everything you need to start recording other than a computer. Great for intermediates and beginners alike. The package even comes with Ableton Live Lite to download off the Focusrite website. The inputs are both XLR and 1/4" compatible to plug in a microphone, guitar, or bass guitar. This is the best sounding interface on the market currently in my opinion.

      This review is from Ellis at Sam Ash in Richmond, VA.
