The world's number one audio interface
Scarlett 2i2 is the best selling USB audio interface in the world, and for good reason. Focusrite has 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.

Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it is easy and intuitive to use. The built in pre-amps sound great, and it fits perfectly on my desk without taking up nearly any real estate.

I had the Apogee One for a few years and used it extensively. But after updating the OS on my Mac recently, it no longer was doing what it used to and became more of a headache to use so I started looking around for a suitable replacement. I found the Focusrite Scarlet 2i2 . What a difference a few years in technology makes! Instead of using all the silly drivers that the Apogee needed, the Focusrite was just plug and play! And with great results. I tend to use it only to record song ideas at home but with the extra input I will be using it at rehearsals as well. Sounds great and works like a dream! Highly recommended!

The interface is super user-friendly and high quality, Just plugged this in and it started working. Windows 10 just read it and BAM you are up and running! Just the software alone is worth the price. Also on mobile, it's crazy I tried on my note8 with deplike app and almost no latency. Super unit for recording.

works great sounds great!

I came from using an Apogee i/o so I was a little hesitant about the mic preamps in this unit, being that it was so much cheaper than my Apogee. Turns out this unit sounds fantastic. I'm very happy with the sound and the design and functionality of the unit is great too. It does have a bit less input gain than my Apogee did but it's still fine for recording low output sources like nylon string guitars with clarity and low noise. One issue is that when my computer goes to sleep I need to unplug its USB and plug it back in to activate it.
