Studio Quality You Can Take Anywhere

If you make the world's top-selling USB audio interface, do you rest on your laurels? Not if you're Focusrite! The second generation Scarlett 2i2 raises the bar with vanishingly low latency, 192kHz sample rates, optimized preamp gain structure, and instrument inputs that handle scorching hot pickups. Ideal for the small project studio or mobile rig, the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 G2 sports two combo inputs with great-sounding Scarlett mic pres plus line-level/instrument jacks. It runs on USB bus power and features analog protection circuitry to safeguard against power surges. The Scarlett 2i2 looks quite fetching in its red-and-black livery, and Focusrite has upgraded the industrial design with grippy metal gain knobs and a sleeker metal chassis. Plug in, fire up the bundled software, and you're ready to rock.

Optimized second-generation technology

The 2nd-generation Focusrite Scarlett 2i2's exterior has undergone a sleek makeover. Under the hood, though, it's been tweaked and upgraded to deliver better sonics, lower latency, and enhanced ease of use. With sample rates up to 192kHz, you've got studio-grade sound you can take anywhere. And Focusrite has evened out the gain structure of the natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, letting you set levels more accurately. The instrument inputs have also been re-engineered to handle the hottest active pickups. Lastly, Focusrite has wired analog protection circuitry across the Scarlett 2i2's inputs and outputs, safeguarding your interface from damaging power surges.

Super-low latency for better performances

You know you perform better when you've got a great-sounding monitor mix with everything you need to hear to be inspired — for example, reverb and delay on a guitar solo. The Scarlett 2i2's super-low latency lets you monitor with native plug-in effects in real time, so you can hear your parts as you envision them and record better performances. At Sweetwater, we know you can't put a price on that.

Award-winning Focusrite preamps capture great audio

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is equipped with two vibrant and pristine Focusrite preamps. For over 25 years, Focusrite's award-winning mic pres have proven their mettle in pro studios around the world. Focusrite ports their considerable design savvy into the transparent, low-noise, low-distortion preamps in the Scarlett 2i2. This is the same technology found in Focusrite's flagship products, giving you gobs of available headroom to accommodate your dynamic, condenser, and ribbon mics on any source, no matter how boisterous. Of course, you also get phantom power for your mics that require it.

Keep an eye on your levels with front-panel indicators

Your mom always said to watch your levels. Well, perhaps she didn't, but you know you should — and the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 makes it easy. The 2i2's innovative halo indicators always let you know when you've got a healthy signal level for recording. If the halo is Red, your signal is clipping, and you should back down your gain. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the level returns to a happy level — at which point it will turn green. Simple and intuitive, isn't it?

Exclusive software bundle gets you up and running fast

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 ships with a killer software bundle headlined by the exclusive Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack, which features a 16-track version of the DAW with 12 additional plug-ins, including Eleven Lite guitar amp emulation.

Great!!!

I now own several of these little things. They are fabulous!! Very clear, easy to run, yet powerful! I use them both at FOH and on stage every week. I have never had an issue with these. I am getting ready to order 2 more 2i2 and a 2i4 for other. I highly recommend one of these for recording and all things midi.

Basic, compact, highly effective

In need of an inexpensive upgrade to replace my Toneport UX2, I purchased the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 and was happy to find it fully as described. Setting it up to my Mac was as easy as 1-2-3. I use it with a condenser microphone for audiobook narration and plug a guitar into it on occasion. The latency is super low and the sound is crisp and clear. The small size makes it ideal for travel. I highly recommend this product for basic, no-frills home studio work and am guessing that it will work fine in more professional applications. Kudos to Scott and the staff at Sweetwater for their service and speedy delivery.

2i2 works like a charm

I'm really happy with the 2i2. It has worked flawlessly from the start. I'm not a tecchie person at all and am somewhat intimidated by the thought of setting up a new interface. Well, this one was completely trouble-free. And it even came with detailed instructional videos on how to set it up.I've already used it in my studio and as part of my mobile rig. It's compact, easy to set up and it even looks cool. Instead of a dull grey box, they made it shiny scarlett!
