A great introduction to recording for those who want a simple set up that just works, the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Second generation is a 2-in/2-out USB Audio Interface that is compatible with both Mac and PC, offers 24-bit resolution at sample rates of up to 96 KHz, houses two high-quality, award-winning microphone preamps, and is protected by a distinctive, red, anodised aluminium unibody chassis.

The interface offers two channels, so you can capture from two sources simultaneously and from a variety of sources, thanks to the two XLR/¼” TRS jack combo inputs, which will accept audio from microphones, instruments or line-level devices, the switching of which is easy with independent Line/Instrument switches for each channel. There is also a 48V Phantom Power switch so you are not restricted in your choice of microphone.

Focusrite Halo Indicators

Both channels have their own Gain controls, which are circled with 'halo' indicators. These halos light up red when your input level is too high and is clipping, so that you know to alter the amount of gain. Once lowered a sufficient amount the halo will go to amber and then green.

The Second Generation Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface’s output section is quite simple. A USB connection takes your signal to the computer and also provides bus-power to the unit (so you don’t need a power supply), and two balanced, ¼” TRS jacks and a ¼” TRS jack positioned on the front, provide monitoring options for either speakers or headphones. The monitoring section also offers a level control and a separate headphone amp, with the option of direct hardware monitoring of the inputs for low-latency monitoring.

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 second generation USB interface comes with a plethora of powerful software including Softube Time & Tone Pack, Pro Tools First / First Focusrite Creative Pack, Ableton Live Lite music making software, 2 GB of Loopmasters sounds and samples and the Novation Bass Station VST and AU plug-in synthesiser!
