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
  • 24-bit resolution at sample rates of up to 96 KHz
  • Rugged Metal Unibody Case
  • Included Software – DAW and Effects

      Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio Interface:

      For a basic recording setup the Focusrite 2i4 is a great place to start. The unit is an all metal casing built to last. Its a great option for home recording as well as being used for a live dj rig. For the price point of the unit the mic pres are the best around.

      Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio Interface:

      This interface is awesome. 2 inputs, 4 sets out and.... midi in and out! This little guy packs a power house of functions and features. Aside from that, it also offers great sound quality that will outshine most of its kind. The preamps are very clean and and you even get a headphone out with its own independent gain. On top of all that, this thing is built like a tank, you can take it anywhere being that its usb powered without worrying about breaking it in your back pack. This is great value at a super price.

        Easy to use. Plug your guitar and or mic straight in to the front, controlling your levels is easy, and you get a low latency mix for your input and playback. You have direct monitoring so you can hear what you are recording though speakers or headphones. And it comes with software for PC or Mac. Great sound quality in a rugged metal box.

          Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio Interface:

          If you have the 2i2 and it's just not cutting it anymore, you should upgrade here. The peamps are of amazing quality. It has the same number of XLR inputs but it also has midi ins/outs and RCA outputs. You can now hook it up to so much more. The versatility of it being USB powered makes this easy to take along to mobile recordings. The frame is rugged and will protect the unit. And just like it's little cousin, the LED lights around the gain knobs are great to see if your levels are spiking.

            Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio Interface:

            As i stated in my review for the 2i2, this interface just sounds absolutely incredible, and has amazing headroom. By eliminating the middle man(because focusrite used to make preamps for so many other companies, i.e. avid) they are able to take their sound and put it into an amazing quality yet affordable interface. 2ins are perfect for small projects. and the 4 outs give you the option to reference and monitor your mixes simultaneously, or run your samples to 2 seperate output sources, the added Midi In and Out are wonderful for your workstations, or midi synced processors for dead precise timing or automated switching for live gigs.

                Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio Interface:

                The Scarlett 2i4 is a great small interface for a home or project recording studio. The mic preamps provide great sound quality for a box in this price range. I have used this interface with both mac and pc (and with various recording software) without any problems. My two favorite features of this interface are the mix control knob, and the LED rings around the gain controls. The LEDs make it easy to see if your gain is too high and the mix control lets you control the balance between your playback and input signals. Both very handy features. The attractive red casing doesn't hurt either. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music

                  Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio Interface:

                  The mic preamps in this interface are very high quality, exactly what I would expect from Focusrite. This is even more versatile than the 2i2 with its MIDI In/Out and RCA outputs, allowing a much wider range of equipment that can be hooked up to it. I can always trust that what I hear during recording and mixing is what my audience will end up hearing as well.
