Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface (2nd Generation)

2 Scarlett Inputs & 2 Outputs - Powered via USB - Independent Headphone Output - Line/Instrument Switches - 48V Phantom Power - 24-Bit/192 kHz - Direct Monitoring - Included Internal Mixer Software - Included Software Bundle - Mac OS X & Windows Compatible


The Scarlett 2i2 from Focusrite is a 2 input, 2 output portable USB recording interface featuring two Focusrite preamps, housed in an anodized aluminum unibody chassis that is solid enough to take on the road. The preamps offer transparent, low-noise and low-distortion performance with sufficient available headroom for using moving coil, condenser or ribbon microphones. Phantom power is switchable.

The front-panel Neutrik combo connectors can used to connect both line and instrument level signals as well as microphones. This makes it perfect for recording the output of a synthesizer or stage piano, while a flick of a switch caters for the output of an electric or acoustic guitar. Halo signal indicators help with maintaining correct levels. Red indicates a clipping signal, and with reduced gain the lights will momentarily turn amber before returning to green.

A large monitor dial provides control over the output level being sent to monitor speakers, while a high-quality amplifier provides a clean yet loud signal to headphones. A direct monitor switch routes audio directly from the inputs to both the headphone and speaker outputs, allowing for zero-latency monitoring. The included Scarlett Plug-In suite provides EQ, compression, gate and reverb processing, and is cross-platform compatible with all major DAWs.

  • Direct monitor switch on the front panel allows for hearing what is being recorded through speakers or headphones, without the signal having to go through the computer (avoids latency)
