focusrite-scarlett-2i2-2×2-usb-audio-interface Ideal for singer-songwriters and guitarists, the third-generation focusrite-scarlett-2i2-2×2-usb-audio-interface offering high-performance hardware, customizable mic tone, and a creative software bundle

The two improved Scarlett microphone preamps feature switchable phantom power and selectable Air circuits, which add brightness based on Focusrite’s legendary ISA preamplifier. The two XLR-1/4″ combo inputs can also accept unbalanced instrument level from guitars and basses, and synthesizers and drum machines, or balanced line level from a mixing console or outboard preamps.

The 24-bit / 192 kHz converters ensure that signals are captured and reproduced with detail and clarity. Hook up headphones to the front-panel 1/4″ jack and connect active speakers to the rear-panel balanced 1/4″ monitor outputs, and enjoy independent control of the headphone and speaker volume settings. Since the focusrite-scarlett-2i2-2×2-usb-audio-interface is powered via USB, you can take it anywhere your Mac or Windows computer can go.
