Built to deliver top-shelf sound in a compact, bag-friendly, and easy-to-use format for singer-songwriters, guitarists, and podcaster duos, the third-generation Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2×2 USB audio interface lets artists and content creators score pro-level tone with no learning curve, no matter where they go.
Equally capable for tracking vocals and instruments, the two improved Scarlett microphone preamps feature switchable phantom power for condenser mics and a selectable-per-channel Air circuit, which adds clarity-enhancing brightness based on Focusrite’s legendary ISA preamplifier. The two XLR-1/4″ combo inputs are outfitted with switches that allow them to accept signal directly from electric instruments such as guitar and bass or from line-level sources such as stereo mixer outputs or a hot feed from a drum machine.
Unlocking the ability to record at standard CD quality or high-fidelity resolutions, the 24-bit / 192 kHz AD/DA converters ensure that signals are captured and reproduced with detail and accuracy. Listen through headphones or connect active speakers to the balanced 1/4″ monitor outputs, and enjoy independent control of the headphone and speaker volume settings. Use selectable direct monitoring in mono or stereo to hear your live input signal with no distracting echo or latency.
With its bus powering for uninhibited portability, space-saving USB Type-C connection, and extensive software bundle including elementary versions of Ableton Live and Avid Pro Tools music production workstations, virtual instruments, plug-in effects, loops, and more, the Scarlett 2i2 gives you plenty of powerful tools to kick-start your inspiration; just plug the Scarlett 2i2 into your Mac/Windows computer or iPad Pro, fire up your preferred audio recording software, and let the creativity flow.
