The stylish Focusrite 2i2 allows you to attach your musical instrument and microphone to your computer for recording and playback. It connects using USB2 and functions as an external sound card.

The 2 inputs provide XLR or TRS Jack connections, and each has switchable line/mic level, rotary gain control and level monitor in the form of different coloured glow (halo) from behind the gain control.

Rear jacks provide Left and Right monitor output and a front Jack provides an amplified headphone monitor output. Both have separate level controls and can be jointly switched to directly monitor the inputs.

To enable you to get up and running straight away, the 2i2 come with the Ableton Live Lite 8 software for multitrack recording and playback.

Focusrite Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite Offer

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... popular microphone preamps

For more than 25 years, Focusrite has designed some of the most popular microphone preamps in the industry. This experience has been used to create the transparent, low-noise and low-distortion preamp found not only in the Scarlett 2i2 but also our flagship Firewire interface, the Liquid Saffire 56. Plenty of available headroom makes it suitable for moving coil, condenser and ribbon microphones regardless of the source. Phantom power is provided for mics that need it.

Plug straight in

The front panel high quality combination input can be used to connect line and instrument level signals as well as microphones. This makes it perfect for recording the output of a synthesizer or stage piano, whilst at the flick of a switch you can cater for the output of an electric or acoustic guitar.

Halo signal indicatorsKeep an eye on your levels

Unique halo indicators let you know that you’ve got a good signal level for recording. Red means that your signal is clipping, and that you should reduce the gain. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the level returns to a healthy level, at which point it will turn green.

Flexible monitoring options

A large monitor dial provides a tactile control for the volume of your speakers, whilst a high quality headphone amp provides a clean yet loud signal to headphones connected to the front panel socket. The direct monitor switch routes audio directly from the inputs to both the headphone and speaker outputs. This allows you to monitor the incoming signal with zero-latency.

Scarlett Plug-In suite

The included Scarlett Plug-In suite provides effects compatible with all major DAWs; so whether you're using GarageBand, Pro Tools 9, Cubase, Logic or the included Ableton Live Lite, Scarlett 2i2 is the complete package for you to get recording straight away.
