OVERVIEW

Second-generation 2-in/2-out USB 2.0 audio interface with 24-bit/192kHz performance.

With Scarlett 2i2 your recordings will sound just how you want them. Two combination inputs with natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, line level inputs and newly designed instrument inputs let you record anything you want. Even seriously hot guitar pick-ups. Two 1/4 inch balanced jack outputs let you connect to professional studio monitors, turn up the volume and totally immerse yourself in sound.

New Generation - Better in Every Way
The second generation Scarlett range is packed full of upgrades. New super-low latency* will bring confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. New metal gain controls and a sleeker red metal chassis underscore its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere. The Scarlett range also now operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz, and the input channels have evolved too. The latest Scarlett mic preamp features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned so it can handle seriously hot guitar pick-ups. Finally, Focusrite have provided analog protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.

Ready to Record Anywhere
Compact and portable enough to take anywhere, you won't even need a power supply; Scarlett 2i2 is connected and powered by a single USB cable. It also comes with the software and effects you need to start recording; an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack (featuring 12 additional plug-ins including the Eleven Lite for real life guitar amp emulations), Ableton Live Lite, the Softube Time and Tone Bundle, Focusrite's Red Plug-In Suite, 2GB of Loopmasters samples and more.

Free Addictive Keys License Included
The Addictive Keys virtual instrument from XLN Audio is now included for free with all Focusrite audio interfaces, and is available for existing customers as well as new customers. One full license per account enables you to choose one world-class Addictive Keys instrument, such as Modern Upright, Studio Grand, Electric Grand or Mark One.

Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (2nd Generation) USB Audio Interface:

My only complaint is the wobbly USB input jack. it reminds me of an 80's Chrysler Minivan turn signal switch that's ready to fall off. Make that sturdy, and you will have a good product here and may even compare to the Roland Duo Capture. I returned mine.

    Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (2nd Generation) USB Audio Interface:

    I replace my FocusRite iTrack Solo with this, to have an extra preamp. Nice to be able to double-mic a guitar track or vocal and play with the mix later, and this interface is perfect for that. The sound quality and ease of use are excellent (as they were for the iTrack). A further advantage of the 2i2 over the iTrack Solo is that you have separate volume controls on the unit for playback and input monitoring, which is useful for adjusting monitoring while recording. The 2nd generation unit has near-zero latency when the buffer size is set relatively low (say 256 samples/second or less); for high-quality playback during mixing, a larger buffer is often better, and the resulting slight delay is not bothersome. I've been using this for about a month and am very impressed.

        Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (2nd Generation) USB Audio Interface:

        I bought this to be a part of my portable studio. I had the 6i6 previously and love Focusrite's preamp. I read good reviews and even tried one out. Well, I didn't try one out with my personal laptop. I have a brand new MacBook Pro. I went through the entire set up process and even downloaded the latency patch they have for it and it would not work. The audio would cut out frequently, if it worked at all. I contacted Focusrite and they never responded. I tried this with my wife's PC and my brother-in-law's older MacBook and it worked fine. I am assuming it has something to do with my set up, but I could not get it to work with my laptop and I received no service from Focusrite's customer service. Ended up going with a Steinberg UR22mkII and it worked flawlessly.
