Overview

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 is a robust 2 in / 4 out USB recording interface that combines affordability, cross-platform operation, a comprehensive feature set and the best audio performance in its class. It's a perfect match for both the musician and the digital DJ - and it comes in an elegant, road-ready anodized aluminum unibody case. The Scarlett 2i4 is the perfect audio interface for musicians and digital DJs and can fully withstand the rigors of the road. Like all Scarlett interfaces, 2i4 is fully compatible with Macintosh® (including Yosemite®) and Windows®, and with the included Red 2 and Red 3 AAX plugins, it’s a perfect partner for Pro Tools.

Ready to make music
Connect Scarlett 2i4 to your computer and get ready to make music! With the very best in digital audio technology and a great selection of input and output options, the Scarlett 2i4 will capture and play back your sound with superb quality. The front panel has two combo XLR inputs to connect microphones, guitars and line level signals such as keyboards, safe in the knowledge that your sound is in the best possible hands. Use the “PAD” function for high-output guitars or microphones, and use the “DIRECT MONITOR” control for a low-latency mix of input and playback signals.

Checking your levels
Scarlett’s unique “signal halos” let you know that you’ve got the right audio level for recording. Green is good, while red means that your audio is too loud and you need to lower the gain control.

DJ-ready outputs
With 4 RCA outputs, a large, tactile main monitor level control and a high-level headphone output with its own volume control – along with pristine audio quality, in a package ready for the road – Scarlett 2i4 is ideal for today's digital performers and laptop-based DJs.



Note: Includes the Focusrite Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-In Suite (AAX/AU/VST) upon registration of interface. Accurately modeled on the classic Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor, the Red plug-ins let you exploit the sound of the hardware originals, conveniently from within Pro Tools (10 and above) and other audio software.
