The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (3rd Gen) is the third edition of one of the world's best selling audio interfaces. The third-generation Scarlett 2i2 provides two mic/line/instrument inputs allowing simultaneous recording and playback of up to two channels with independently controllable headphone and monitor outputs.

The Focusrite 2i2 features two upgraded third-generation Scarlett mic preamps. It has an optional Air setting to reproduce the Air effect of Focusrite’s original ISA mic preamp. This gives your vocal and acoustic recordings a brighter and more open sound. With high performance 24-bit/192kHz AD-DA converters, Scarlett guarantees the same professional sound quality throughout the third-generation range. The high impedance, high-headroom instrument inputs allow you to record guitar or bass without any clipping or unwanted distortion, while Gain Halo metering makes it easy for you to set the input level.

The Scarlett 2i2 interface is designed to stand up to days on the road, and connects straight to your Mac or PC via USB cable, with no external power required. It comes with all the software tools you need to get started, including two comprehensive digital audio workstations: Ableton Live Lite and Pro Tools First Focusrite Creative Pack. Intuitive enough for beginners yet advanced enough to inspire real creativity with great-sounding effects.
