High Quality Preamps

25+ years of experience in designing analog equipment has resulted in two high quality award-winning Focusrite mic pres. The Scarlett 2i2 pre-amps share the same design as those found in Focusrite flagship interfaces.


Direct Monitor Function

Flick the direct monitor switch and you will hear what you're recording through your speakers or headphones, without the signal having to go through your computer. This avoids the possibility of latency, which can be distracting when recording.


Easy to Stop Clipping

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

Technical Details

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (2nd Gen) features everything you need to turn your computer into a digital recording solution, improving on its original design to deliver maximum audio quality and performance. The interface features a 2 in / 2 out configuration, featuring both XLR and line/instrument inputs for recording microphones and instruments. There is also a 48V phantom power switch that allows you to connect and power condenser microphones, perfect for recording studio-quality vocals. You can also connect your headphones directly to the interface for monitoring purposes, allowing you to hear the audio signal as you record. The compact design and size of the Scarlett 2i2 makes it highly portable, allowing you to take your interface with you wherever you go. This is ideal for digital musicians who like to collaborate with other artists who may not have the same equipment at hand.

The MKII has been improved tenfold with a range of new features and functions that improve performance and audio quality. One of the most prominent upgrades is the new super-low latency performance. The super-low roundtrip latency improves performance and efficiency by minimising the delay between the original signal and the processed signal on your computer. This is paramount when recording vocals or instruments as it gives you the ability to record signals as close to real-time as possible. The sample rate of the Scarlett 2i2 (2nd Gen) has also been increased, now running up to 24-bit/192kHz for maximum audio quality and studio-grade recordings.

NOTE: Since the 2i2 only has one pair of stereo outputs it's NOT fit for DJing. If you need that functionality check the Scarlett 2i4.

"THIS IS NOT A DJ INTERFACE!!!! This product DOES NOT let you listen to the headphone cue separately. The 2i4 does."
