Building on the acclaimed success of the original Scarlett Solo Studio, this second generation Focusrite Scarlett Solo Studio Second Generation Audio Interface recording package makes it better, faster and easier to generate professional grade recording in the comfort of your own home.
The hub of the Focusrite Scarlett Solo Studio Second Generation is the fantastic Scarlett Solo USB audio interface. The interface allows you to record two different sound sources at once to separate tracks inside your computer. For example you could run both an acoustic guitar and microphone in to the interface, letting you record a full acoustic track which could be overdubbed with additional instruments later.
You can use almost any instrument with the Scarlett Studio, thanks to the inclusion of both XLR and 1/4" jack inputs. Both of the mic preamps are of exceptionally high quality, having won awards in the past and being well known for crystal clear clarity.
