OVERVIEW

Recording package with interface, headphones and more.

We've put together this recording package to make it easy for you to get the essential components you need with just one purchase, and at a price that's much more affordable than if you purchased everything individually. Included in this package is the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface, a pair of AKG M80 MKII Headphones, an MXL 990 condenser microphone, and all the accessories and cables you need to get set up.

Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface
Mobile recording is at an all-time high and you need an audio interface that can maintain optimal performance at any moment when inspiration strike. The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is right tool for the job. With two award-winning Focusrite preamps packed into a compact, anodized aluminum uni-body chassis, the Scarlett 2i2 not only produces professional quality sound but also looks great doing it.

AKG M80 MKII Headphones
The AKG circumaural M 80 MkII headphones have an adjustable headband, leatherette earpads, and a single-sided cable. An 18Hz-20kHz frequency response offers deep bass and sparkling transients - great for tracking. These headphones offer good quality sound at a very reasonable price. Buying multiple headphone sets for tracking can really stress a studio budget. You can hand these out to band members in your studio without apology, and without breaking your bank.

MXL 990 Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount
The MXL 990 Condenser Microphone with shock mount has a silky, sweet high end while retaining tight, solid low and midrange reproduction. The 3/4" gold-sputtered diaphragm creates a professional sound suited for digital and analog recording. Attractive vintage body style with champagne finish. The 30Hz-20kHz frequency response is ideal for lead and background vocal, male or female. Includes custom shock mount, mic stand adapter, and case. Remember folks, this mic requires phantom power, so make sure your console or interface delivers it before ordering.

Good Starting Point

By Jeff

from Chicago

Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 MXL Package:

I purchased this package a year and a half ago when it was on sale, and I have been very pleased with nearly every component. Below I include a breakdown describing each item individually.

The Scarlett 2i2 interface is sturdy, easy to use, handsome, and it delivers a good, clean signal to my DAW. Its included plugins are difficult to activate, but once that process is over they are useful. I have appreciated the Red Compressor in particular.

The MXL 990 is a reasonable starter condenser microphone. Even cursory research will tell you that it is not the best condenser in the world, but it can still deliver a quality recording. I appreciate its performance with acoustic guitars in particular, and I am glad to have it as a part of my growing mic locker.

The accessories such as cables and windscreen included in this package are decent enough. I do not know if they would hold up to rough use, but I have had no issues with them in a home studio environment.

The AKG headphones are a nice inclusion. While not ideally suited to mixing and mastering, they will do the job until you purchase something better. Even after that, though, they will still work well as reference headphones, as I have experienced little bleed while using them.

The one major disappointment in this package is the mic stand. It is not sturdy enough to hold the 990 or any other microphone without rapidly drooping. But as far as I am concerned, it is the only blemish on a starter recording kit of good value.

Mostly great

Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 MXL Package:

I bought the package because I needed all of the items that are included. Overall, I am very happy. The Focusrite interface and MXL 990 mic are awesome! The MXL 990 I am already familiar with and this one is MINE! They are great mics! It had both the shock mount holder as well as the solid mount and it came in a nice case. I knew the mic would be awesome, but I am really pleased with the Focusrite 2i2. I had little to no experience with them before this purchase and I am a new fan!

The other items? You can only expect so much. I was mostly interested in the interface and mic and realized that the headphones, etc., would be a little less than the best. I read a lot of reviews prior to my purchase and the one common negative pattern was the boom stand...and they are right. I have used literally thousands of ProLine stands in my days as a stagehand/Manager, and this one is definitely lacking. It takes some proper placing of the boom (as usual) but really took some cranking to get it to hold the MXL.

The headphones are ok but are not pro quality by any means. They will work fine for me for now though.

The cables are ok but remember, they are crucial in the signal flow quality, so I'll be keeping an ear on them...so far so good.

Like I said, my expectations were met (MXL990), exceeded (Focusrite interface), and as I thought (everything else) so I am pleased with my purchase.

Horrible Mic Stand

By prankskul

from Boston

Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 MXL Package:

The microphone stand in this package cannot hold the weight of the MXL mic. The boom arm keeps drifting down. The lock doesn't hold the arm in place. I got a replacement (same stand) sent to me by musiciansfriend, but it did the same thing.
I'm going to call for a refund.
