Third-generation USB audio interface
Compact, portable, studio-grade sound. The Scarlett has long been one of the best-selling audio interfaces on the market. Thanks to its affordable price and premium-grade sound, the Scarlett series has been a fan favourite of many musicians, from beginners to professionals. The new and improved design features revamped preamps, upgraded audio fidelity, new interactive onboarding and rock-solid, low-latency USB driver.
The 2i2 features two XLR/instrument combination inputs for accommodating both a¼-inch jack connection or an XLR connection. This means you can record two inputs at the same time, ideal for artists who play and sing at the same time. It also features built-in 48V Phantom Power, allowing you to record using studio-grade condenser microphones.
New and improved preamps deliver pristine sound
Focusrite continue the tradition of creating the best quality audio interfaces they can. With top class components that help their interfaces stand out from the crowd. The new third-generation microphone preamps offer the best sound from a Scarlett interface yet. Exceptional dynamic range and improved lower noise performance give you true professionalism in a compact form.
Enable Air for added richness
One of the most prominent new features of the Scarlett is Air Mode. When Air Mode is enabled, the preamps can reproduce the classic Air effect from the original ISA mic preamps. This Air technology is ideal for recording acoustic guitar performances or for recording vocals performances that are on the softer side.
