The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is a 2x2 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 2i2 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." 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.
Now includes 3 Softube audio plug-ins!
TSAR-1R: Add space, depth and width to your sound—TSAR-1R is a reverb plug-in with world class sound and extreme ease of use. With a single slider, you can take TSAR-1R from realistic and three-dimensional rooms to dramatic and dreamlike halls.
Tube Delay: A tasty echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modeled tube stages. Create anything from realistic room echoes to rockabilly style slapbacks—or take it all the way into dub reggae echo madness.
Saturation Knob: Add grit and warmth to any sound source with this modeled output distortion unit. Use it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy your drum loop. Simply turn up the knob to add saturation, and use the three-position switch to alter the distortion character.
Includes Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite w/64-bit AAX, AU & VST compatibility
These are the first Focusrite plug-ins to include AAX support, making them compatible with Pro Tools 10 and above. The Red 2 & Red 3 plug-ins are accurate models of Focusrite’s classic Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor hardware. Coveted by producers and engineers for their exceptional clarity and versatility, the original units are prized fixtures in professional recording studios the world over.
Now, the Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite (AAX/AU/VST) lets you exploit the famous natural sound of the originals, conveniently from within your audio software.
The plug-ins faithfully reproduce the sonic qualities of the hardware. The Red 2 equalizer is a sweet sounding 6-band design, with high/low pass filters, high/low frequency shelves, as well as fully parametric low-mid and high-mid frequency bands. The Red 3 hardware is a VCA compressor design, excellent for natural sounding dynamic control of drums, bass, vocals, and acoustic instruments.
