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 your 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 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

Great Investment

This interface has been a great addition to my home studio. As a first time user of Focusrite I have to say that it is very well made. I like the ease in seeing clipping with the light up display on the knobs for both channels, that is a big bonus. The extras you get with the device like plugins and DAW software is generous. The whole package fits perfectly with what I needed to purchase and was a great value in one package. Well done Focusrite!

Pretty Fantastic!

You'd think that at this price, this "studio" would be pretty crappy. But it's been amazing for me so far. Just remember to also get a mic stand and pop filter.

Best entry level choice

I think this pack is one of the best choices a buyer has. Within this price range, the quality of the Focusrite products is quite high. Although there are only 2 inputs and outputs, it is perfect for you if you just started building your own studio or want to record your instruments/vocals at home.I truly recommend this product!

Amazing but lacking

First off I love this interface, it does everything you need and then some. My ONLY issue with it is the lack of MIDI in/out. If this would have the MIDI in/out then it would be the perfect interface for beginners/intermediate users. If you don't need the MIDI then 100% go for this but if you do, meh.
