Third-generation USB audio interface
Compact, portable, studio-grade sound. The Scarlett has long been one of the best-selling audio interfaces on the market.

The new and improved design features revamped preamps, upgraded audio fidelity, new interactive onboarding and rock-solid, low-latency USB driver.
The 2i2 features two XLR/instrument combination inputs for accommodating both a¼-inch jack connection or an XLR connection. This means you can record two inputs at the same time, ideal for artists who play and sing at the same time.
