Introducing the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface 2nd Gen: designed for the musician who needs to record any combination of up to two microphone, instrument or line level inputs at professional quality.

Sound just like you
With Scarlett 2i2 your recordings will sound just how you want them. Two combination inputs with natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, line level inputs and newly-designed instrument inputs let you record anything you want. Even seriously hot guitar pick-ups. Two 1/4 inch balanced jack outputs let you connect to professional studio monitors, turn up the volume and totally immerse yourself in sound.

New Generation - Better in every way
The second 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.

* 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

Ready 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. It also comes with the software and effects you need to start recording; an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack (featuring 12 additional plug-ins including the Eleven Lite for real life guitar amp emulations), Ableton Live Lite, the Softube Time and Tone Bundle, Focusrite's Red Plug-In Suite, 2GB of Loopmasters samples and more.

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.

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

Focusrite has been around for years! They have improved the gen2's with better pre's and low latency circuitry. Comes packed with Pro Tools First as well as a variety of other software (such as plugins selected from ProTools Eleven Rack). XLR/line level combo jacks with a dedicated headphone level and 1/4" outputs on the back. 2-in, 2-out which makes this great for those just getting into the computer based recording world! The next step in the Focusrite world for much better preamps and so forth...check out the Clarett line!

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

    Great for solo artists or small recording sessions, the 2i2 is the perfect portable audio interface. It's easy to use and sounds great for the price! The dedicated headphone volume is nice because you can turn your monitors down while tracking and still hear your headphones. Inputs also function as line inputs for recording keyboards or guitars!

    Fantastic entry level interface

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

    This is a great foray into computer based home recording. Focusrite has been a big name in recording for decades many of their pieces are in use in studios throughout the world. You get a pair of Focusrite mic preamps that can double for line/instruments, headphone jack, and a pair of outputs. Of course you have phantom power for condensers and active circuits that require it. In the 2nd Gen of Scarlett Focusrite has improved the sound quality at the analog stages as well as the digital by upgrading the converters used. To add even more value they've bundled it with excellent Focusrite Plugins, Creative Pack which gives you access to all kinds of effects amp sims and plugins, Lite Versions of Ableton Live and Pro Tools, and if you register your Scarlett interface every month you'll get a free plugin courtesy of Plugin Collective. So if you need a simple 2 in, 2 out USB bus powered interface that doesn't perform like a toy but packs tremendous long term value then check out the new Focusrite Scarlett 2i2.

    I love this Focusrite because all the problems I was having without it was solved. My only issue is not really an issue. I just want to go back and trade this one in and get a bigger one.
