Quality Preamp

Having designed some of the most popular microphone preamps in the industry, Focusrite give you the transparent, low-noise and low-distortion preamp found not only in the Scarlett 2i2 but also their flagship Firewire interface, the Liquid Saffire 56. There's plenty of available headroom, which makes it suitable for moving coil, condenser and ribbon microphones regardless of the source. Phantom power is provided for mics that need it.

Front Panel Neutrik Combination Input

The front panel Neutrik 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 synthesiser or stage piano, whilst at the flick of a switch you can cater for the output of an electric or acoustic guitar.

Unique Halo Signal Indicators

The Scarlett 2i2 features unique halo signal indicators which inform you 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.

Great Monitoring Capabilities

Get tactile control for the volume of your speakers with the large monitor dial. 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, allowing you to monitor the incoming signal with zero-latency.

Included Software - DAW and Effects

Included with the Scarlet 2i2 is Ableton Live Lite 8, as well as Focusrite's Scarlett plug-in suite. Compatible with all major DAWs, Scarlett plug-in suite provides EQ, Compression, Gate and Reverb - essential tools for polishing your mix.
