Focusrite proudly introduce the Scarlett 2i2 audio interface, featuring exceptional audio quality, ultimate simplicity and stunning design. The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is a 2-in/2-out USB 2.0 audio interface with the highest specifications in its class. Alongside awardwinning Focusrite mic/instrument preamps, high-quality 24-bit/96kHz digital conversion and flexible monitor control, it features a new unibody industrial design, which is visually striking, functional and robust.

At the heart of the Scarlett 2i2, two Focusrite microphone preamplifiers provide an exceptionally clean signal path for mic-, instrument- or line-level sources, and supply phantom power to condenser mics. Best-in-class digital converters capture pristinequality
audio for professional-sounding results, and a new unibody chassis — a single piece of red anodised aluminium — surrounds the 2i2’s internal circuitry and controls. Not only does it sound and look fantastic, the Scarlett 2i2 is also rugged enough to take knocks on stage and throw into a laptop bag to make high-quality recordings anywhere.

Other innovations on the Scarlett 2i2 include unique LED-halo signal indicators, which
encircle each of the gain controls. These glow green when an input signal is detected and turn red if clipping occurs, to provide a quick and easy way of ensuring that an
appropriate signal level is achieved.

The Scarlett 2i2 has a pair of quarter-inch TRS jack outputs for feeding powered studio
monitors or an external audio device, such as a mixer. A large knob provides accurate
control of the output level, and direct monitoring allows for zero-latency tracking.
There’s also a quarter-inch headphones output with dedicated level control. Since the
interface is bus powered, an additional power supply is not needed, meaning the interface is truly portable. What’s more, it’s bundled with the Focusrite Scarlett Plug-in Suite as well as Ableton Live Lite: all that’s needed to get recording right away.
