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.
