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.

The Addictive Keys virtual instrument from XLN Audio is included for free with all Focusrite Scarlett, Clarett, Red and Saffire audio interfaces, and is available for existing customers as well as new customers.

Compact and versatile, great interface for the price!

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

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is a perfect interface for the beginner to the professional looking for a portable solution when traveling. With 2inputs and 2outputs, and separate headphone volume control, its a great companion when traveling, or when inspiration hits when not in the studio. The Mic Pres are clean and its even bundled with Ableton Live Lite and a couple of Focusrites top plugins. Excellent buy for the price point.

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

I have been using Focusrite interfaces for over a year now, I don't think I will ever be going back. The only things I believe you can get better than this are going to be on the very high end (Universal Audio/etc.) . What you get, 2 combo jack preamps with high quality DSP and the recording quality is through the roof (Up to 192kHz)! It also has 2 line outs for your monitors. This is the perfect portable / bedroom / studio B recording interface. Love it.

The Scarlett 2i2 is a great interface for any intro- to mid-level home recording set-up. It has 2 inputs for either mics or instruments, nice sounding pre-amps, and outputs for studio monitors and headphones. This unit sends signal and powers via USB and can do HD quality recording. You can't beat the quality you get out of this interface at this price!

      This is a great interface for the price, some would argue the current industry standard for inexpensive interfaces. The feel and durability on this one is great, they last a long time and work very well. Certainly worth checking out.

      Very Convenient in size and function

      By 

      from edison

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

      The size of the unit in itself is great for utilizing small studio spaces without taking away from great function. The fact that the product also includes protools makes it very useful for anyone looking to get started in recording. Getting the extra software such as addicted for keys is also a huge benefit!

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

      This audio input would be ideal for the musician just easing in to home-recording. The interface is super user-friendly and streamlined. I really appreciate how light-weight, compact and portable this interface is which can be useful for the musician on the go. Being able to bring an interface to a practice session and having an easy way to record on the spot is a nice benefit. The interface comes pre-loaded with 12 plugins that you could spend a ton of time playing with and exploring. Overall, I think this is a great interface for anyone interested in home recording while staying on a budget.

      Perfect for starters

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

      Focusrite is hands down my personal favorite interface company out there in market for people who are starting to record themselves for the first time. The new generation 2 models are a huge upgrade from the last generation. You get double the processing speed so little to no latency and the body is made of metal instead of plastic like other companies. The 2I2 model also has 2 1/4" outputs instead of RCA which lends itself to a better sound going into your monitors.

      The Best Selling Interface for a Reason

      By 

      from Edison, NJ

      Staff Reviewer

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

      The focusrite 2i2 is the quintessential interface for anybody looking to start a home or project studio. With two combo jack inputs you have just enough flexibility to record from two mic sources, two line sources or a mix of both. The design makes for ease of use, so that anyone can pick it up and use it. I love the knobs as the leds on them go from red to green to indicate a safe recording level, as to prevent clipping and distortion from too much gain.
