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 Gen) USB Audio Interface:

      I've had this thing since 2012. I got it to replace both Fast Track Pros that my associate and I ended up wearing out.

      This thing is awesome! It connects easily with my 2012 MacBook Pro. My biggest issue with the Fast Track Pro was that it would work great at first, but then after I removed it from my main computer, and then hooked it up to my associate's PC, it not only didn't work on his PC, it also never worked again on my MacBook. To this day, I get worried every I plug my Focusrite back in, because I was so used to having issues with my Fast Track. Not so with the Scarlett. It has not failed me once.

      4 years later and I'm still rocking it, and It's paid for itself (I record vocalists for an hourly rate on the side). My only complaint is that it only has a single 1/4" headphone jack. This is a problem that my other associate addressed, as we would have to use a 2nd interface to give an engineer and a vocalist headphone output simultaneously. His solution was to upgrade to a model with dual inputs, and I'll likely do the same. My suggestion for anyone wanting dual headphone inputs would be to pay the extra $100+ for a unit with that capability. But if you're just recording yourself, or have access to a different input, this thing will keep up with you. Only reason I'm on the market for an upgrade is because I recently purchased bigger speakers/monitors, and thus have lost access to the 1/8" plug that I used to utilize on my old JBL 3.5" cones (I upgraded to the 5" LSRs).

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

      This device has caused my songwriting/creativity go to another level that I have never experienced before! In fact, with the use of this equipment in the homestudio, it has caused another problem! Not enough time to write the new songs being downloaded into my spirit(daily) ha ha ha ha!

      I am astounded by the clarity, the speed, the lack of latency, the ease at which this device operates, the versatility, the beauty of the box. The simplicity. Literaly this device for a songwriter, arranger, composer, home stuido musician and others. There is an elation when I know that I can produce/output from the very simplist of tracks to very complex tracks. The "monitor" function button is beyond amazing. To be able to hear myself using my great quality MXL990 condenser mics(2) that I purchased from Guitar Center in 2004(rarely used my Korg D1200 mkII which is still a solid digital studio on its own), and to get such an incredible clear quality recording just makes me "sing" a lot more ha ha ha and I am not really a "singer". I can carry a tune but I am no Luther Vandross! Lol.
      The actual installation of the device took less than ten minutes because you are required to go Focusrite website to download the correct driver(most up to date for your system-no issues with this)
      Focusrite has go it right! Though I am using several other low budget DAWs(Sony Acid Studio 10, Cakewalk(old version), energyXT2, Stuio One 3, and now ProTools|First, Ableton Live Lite) ALL of which work fine with the Focusrite box. No problems recognizing it all.
      The Focusrite Audio Box is constructed well with the nice RED color flamboyantly resting on my CPU box.
      I just cannot overstate the CLARITY of recordings. If you sing or play well, it will capture that. If you sing or play bad, it will capture that too! LOL. They can easily market this sound device as being the Audio box that does not lie. Ha ha ha ha.
      I am astounded by the clarity, the speed, the lack of latency, the ease of this device.

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

        I had a problem with getting a competitor's product to work on my laptop. The local store allowed me it install it on my laptop right on their counter before buying it to be sure that I would be satisfied that it would work then they loaned me a mic to try recording with it. Some of the staff also wanted to try it out since it was new in the store.

        The 2i2 works great for me. It just sits there and does its thing so I can do mine.

            I tried multiple setups on different usb ports using windows 10. I gave up. The drivers are terrible. The device fails to be recognized as a sound device and I am not the only one with this problem. I checked the forums and everyone complains. I am going to return this at my local guitar center tomorrow and purchase the native instruments Audio 6
