    Great Tool

    I bought this audio-interface after owning a Steinberg model and I'm very happy with the results this tool provides me. It's compact, ruggedly built and powerful.

    What more can I say! If you are looking for a great audio interface on a budget, than this is your product right here. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

    Lives up to the hype

    I purchased the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Studio Bundle as a interface into Guitar Rig 5 on my Mac. It works very well for my needs. I'd even say that it exceeded my expectations. The clipping lights are an added bonus. The preamps rock. I would highly recommends this to anyone looking for an affordable audio to digital device. As always, Brandon Eden at Sweetwater provides great advice.

    So far, I'm absolutely loving it.

    This complete package will definitely get you up and going right out of the box. I bought it for 2 reasons, I needed an Audio Interface with Phantom Power and I also needed a Microphone. I believe I got so much more value than what I paid for with these tools. I haven't used it to it's fullest potential yet, but I soon will when I find some vocalists to work with.I'll definitely recommend this to anyone just starting out and looking for a low cost system to get up and running as fast as possible.

    Great deal!

    Obviously, you cannot purchase these items separately at anywhere near this price. i was already familiar with the 2i2 interface from previous use. The recording quality of this budget microphone has to be heard to be believed. The same is true of the audio quality of the headphones. Great package.

    This was purchased by myself as a gift for my husband, who happens to write, produce and performs his own music. He was amazed at the quality and absolutely loves the set!! You are getting very high quality equipment as well as the customer service on this website is outstanding, which was what made me so happy as well! THANK YOU SWEETWATER

    Awesome Bundle!

    You're really buying an awesome audio interface and getting headphones, microphone and cable as a bonus.

    I was using USB condenser mics before I bought this bundle and WOW!!!! The CM-25 really brought out the midrange in the vocals allowing them to sit perfectly in the mix. The interface has direct monitoring allowing you to hear exactly what is going into your DAW. The halo light really helps get the gain settings right on as it lights red when clipping and turning the gain down until it no longer turns red is as simple as it gets.

    Overall, if you're looking for a starter interface that sounds awesome and don't need lots of connections for routing, I highly recommend picking one of these up.

    This product is great for starting out because it still give awesome claritiy. I use this to record vocals and they are very clear and crisp, and with reducing the natrual vocal bass. Very easy to set up and very low latency. As for the headphones they have a great sound but I would not recomend for mixing ans mastering. work great for the musican to listen to instrumental while laying down vocals. For the price you would have to be a fool not to try in you are in the market for a audio interface.

    An Amazing Bundle!

    After years of trying different DAW units (MBox, Alesis io2, Presonus) I found this Studio Bundle to be the best value at this particular price range. Focusrite didn't skimp on any of the features, either. The microphone makes my vocal tracks sound amazing.

    My boxed version actually came with Cubase LE 7, as opposed to 6 as advertised on this web site. I would highly recommend upgrading to Elements if you work with a lot of MIDI tracks and VST Instruments...but LE 7 gives you everything you need to create an amazing recording.

    The only con I have is there are almost no mids on the headphones, so they sound "tinny". But you weren't planning on mixing with headphones anyways, right? Ignoring this tiny aspect, they are the most comfortable pair of headphones I've ever worn.

    At this price, this Studio Bundle is an incredible steal!

    Great starter

    This is a great product for the home studio musician who has absolutely nothing to record with. I am personally blown away by the scarlett interface. The preamps in that thing offer some amazing sound.

    The microphone captures some great sound as well. I have primarily used it as a vocal mic thus far because it has a very warm response up close.

    The headphones are fairly impressive as well. They have a very flat response and have a frequency range of 10hz to 30Khz so you're gonna catch the full spectrum. One little drawback to the headphones is that they actually do bleed a fair amount of sound out of the (closed) back.

    The software is pretty bare bones but it is a great place to start and it allows you to capture sound with some minor audio editing capabilities.

    Overall I am very impressed with this package.

    Easy to use, great customer service from Sweewater

    Like the title says, it was easy to use, especially easy integration with a Mac using Reaper as my DAW. This was really my main concern. I'm just using this in conjunction with EZDrummer to mess around with ideas to take to practice. I don't get really deep into its functionality, pretty much just plug and play, so I can only give it 4 stars, but it fits my needs perfectly. Aaron from Sweetwater made my purchase a lot easier because he took the time to explain the pros and cons of my different options.

    Good for the price.

    The audio interface and Studio quality headphones are very good. However, the microphone leaves much to be desired. For the price this is a very good deal. But if you are going for professional quality I would suggest buying the audio interface separately then purchasing a quality set of headphones and a different mic.

    Great bundle. Great Price.

    I bought this kit for my daughter to start recording her backlog of songs. Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase. I got it for a great price on black friday.

    The bolt on the microphone mount snapped while trying to tighten it, but Sweetwater promptly made good on that. All my online purchases from now on are going through Sweetwater.. I'm quite happy with their service.

    The only downside (to me) is the fact this kit came with Cubase LE 6. The software install is needlessly difficult due to their licensing model. I prefer Studio One for a few different reasons. I kinda wish I would have went with the Presonus bundle instead for the free copy of Studio One Artist.

    That one complaint aside, I have no complaints. The 2i2, Mic and Headphones are outstanding quality for a home user. I don't think you can go wrong.

    Scarlet 2i2 Rocks

    The Scarlett 2i2 is great for home recording and someone who is just learning to record and mix their own music. This bundle has created the sound I need to musically express my thoughts. It does what is is suppose to do. It is not the most expensive, but enables to you record a quality sound even with no acoustic treatment although acoustic treatment is still recommended.

  • from Menan, ID April 3, 2013

    Great starter interface!

    If you are new to the game, this bundle is the way to go. You'll be amazed at how much you get for your buck. This in my opinion is the most affordable way to go if you are a beginner, with still having quite decent equipment.
    PROS: The microphone is sensational! The Focusrite 2i2 is a pretty good little machine and warns you of your levels, so that's a major plus. Cubase LE 6 is a pretty darn good program, especially for a beginner artist. It'll have all you need and maybe even more.

    CONS: The drivers on the 2i2 are horrible! It took me ages to get the thing up and going. The product is great, the drivers, not so much. Cubase LE 6 is a bit limiting when it comes to recording, but if you're a beginner it'll be perfect for you. Lastly, I was not very impressed with the headphones. They are to quiet, but they sound pretty good.
