Focusrite's new 2-in, 4-out USB audio interface boasts amazing features at an affordable price and is designed for musicians and digital DJs. With its anodised aluminium unibody case, the Scarlett 2i4 is a great tool to have in the studio or take on to the road.
High-Quality Sound Conversion
The Scarlett 2i4 has two award-winning Focusrite microphone/line/instrument preamps which can be plugged into via front-panel XLR/TRS sockets. With 24-bit, 96 kHz conversion and class-leading analogue and digital design from input to output, you have amazing sound quality pumping in and out of this tool.
48V Phantom Power
If you're looking to record guitars, vocals or even stereo piano for example, the Scarlett 2i4's 48V phantom power does the job, along with high-quality condenser mics.
Get Zero Latency Monitoring!
Zero latency monitoring is of course very useful when listening back to the input signal through the DAW. That's where controlling direct monitoring comes in. Artists can record into the DAW in real time, whilst hearing a zero latency monitor feed from their input sources. This in turn can be controlled by a single knob for easy blending between direct monitoring and DAW playback.
Controllable Monitor Levels
As with other Scarlett series interfaces, the input level controls have a convenient novel LED around the knob which indicates when there is signal presence (green) and when there is input overload (red). The silver volume knob gives full and accurate control over your monitor levels, useful for listening back to your tracks or when you're mixing music.
Two Award-Winning Focusrite Preamps
Digital DJs will sink their teeth into the Scarlett 2i4, with the high-level headphone output and flexible monitoring capability. You can send outputs 1 & 2 to the main PA and use 3 & 4 for cueing, or send all four to a mixer. The converter performance makes sure that the streamed audio from your computer is sonically amazing in quality. An A/B source switch allows you to monitor either of two stereo output pairs via the high-level headphone output: very useful features for the digital DJ!
The Scarlett 2i4 has MIDI input and output, so if you have a MIDI keyboard or controller, you can play parts out to sound modules and instruments, the audio for this is recorded via Scarlett 2i4's TRS inputs.
Bundled With Software
You'll be amazed to find included software tools, packed with features, like the Focusrite Scarlett Plug-In Suite, boasting reverb, compressor, gate and EQ in the form of VST/AU/RTAS plug-ins. The Xcite+ bundle from Focusrite comes with Ableton Live Lite, Novation's Bass Station soft synth and 1GB of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters. Pack this all together and you have the potential means to compose, produce and perform.
Mac/Windows Compatibility and USB-bus Powered
Whether you're using a Macintosh or a Windows computer, the Scarlett 2i4 delivers high quality, 24-bit 96kHz audio and is compatible with USB 2.0. You only need the included USB to power the interface via bus, so you can easily plug in and start creating music.
