Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2
The Scarlett 2i2 is a 2 in / 2 out USB recording interface featuring two award-winning Focusrite preamps. Housed in an attractive anodised aluminium unibody chassis, the interface not only sounds fantastic but looks great too. What’s more it’s solid enough to take on the road when you travel. The Scarlett 2i2 is much more than just a pretty metal box.
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 offers an all new entry level Scarlett series USB audio interface loaded with dual high-quality, award-winning Focusrite mic preamps. Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 features exceptional audio quality, ultimate simplicity and a stunning design. Scarlett 2i2 features dual inputs and outputs, delivering a highly affordable USB 2.0 audio interface with the highest specifications within its class.
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 pristine-quality 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.
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.
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 combines professional-sounding mic preamps with the very best in USB 2.0 interfacing technology, offering a perfect solution for those new to recording, and for the professional who wants the Focusrite quality in a compact, mobile and robust package.
