The most popular audio interface for artists across all genres, the third-generation Scarlett 2i2 provides two mic/line/instrument inputs allowing simultaneous recording and playback of up to two channels with independently controllable headphone and monitor outputs.

The 2i2 features two upgraded third-generation Scarlett mic preamps: with optional Air setting to reproduce the Air effect of Focusrites original ISA mic preamp, giving your vocal and acoustic recordings a brighter and more open sound.


Equipped with high performance 24-bit/192kHz AD-DA converters, Scarlett guarantees the same professional sound quality throughout the third-generation range.

The high impedance, high-headroom instrument inputs allow you to record guitar or bass - without any clipping or unwanted distortion, while Gain Halo metering makes it easy for you to set the input level.

Scarlett 2i2 is designed to stand up to days on the road, and connects straight to your Mac® or PC via USB cable, with no external power required. It comes with all the software tools you need to get started, including the comprehensive digital audio workstation Ableton® Live Lite™ and a 3-month subscription to Pro Tools®. Intuitive enough for beginners yet advanced enough to inspire real creativity with great-sounding effects.

And as with all Focusrite products, you'll also benefit from a two-year warranty, award-winning customer support and membership of their Plug-in Collective offering free software downloads and generous discounts.
