Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen 2x2 USB Audio Interface

The compact yet versatile Scarlett 2i2 from Focusrite has been the most popular audio interface for artists across all genres. This third-generation 2-in, 2-out USB audio interface provides two mic/line/instrument inputs allowing simultaneous recording and playback of up to two channels with independently controllable headphone and monitor outputs. It also features two upgraded Scarlett mic preamps with switchable Air mode to give your vocal and acoustic recordings a brighter and more open sound. Equipped with high-performance 24-bit/192kHz AD-DA converters, this Scarlett third-generation model guarantees the same professional sound quality as the previous generations.

Easy to Connect

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.

Included Software

Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 comes with all the software tools you need to get started, including two comprehensive digital audio workstations: Ableton Live Lite, three months of Splice Sounds and, three months of Avid® Pro Tools® subscription. Intuitive enough for beginners yet advanced enough to inspire real creativity with great-sounding effects.

Free 3-Month Splice Sounds Subscription

Focusrite has partnered with Splice to give 3rd Gen Interface owners a free 3-month Splice Sounds subscription when setting up a new Splice account. Splice Sounds offers millions of high-quality, royalty-free one-shots, loops, and presets, with new releases daily from your favorite producers, sound designers, and artists. Creators use Splice to make all kinds of music, including chart-topping pop, Grammy-winning albums, underground mixtapes, and cinematic scores.

Hitmaker Expansion

It also includes the new Hitmaker Expansion that allows you to create studio-quality vocals, powerful guitars, luscious keys, and huge drums, then mix and master with the Focusrite studio hardware – all in the box. You get Antares® Auto-Tune Access and Relab’s LX480 Essentials for vocals. Softube's Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555 for guitar gives warm cleans, through the classic crunch, and up to modern high gain tube amp sounds. For keys and drums, you can add beautifully captured piano and the sounds of a pro drummer in your tracks with XLN Audio® Addictive Keys & Addictive Drums 2: Studio Rock. Also included are Brainworx Bx_console Focusrite SC, and Focusrite Red 2 & 3 Plug-in Suite.

Compact and Versatile

This portable audio interface focuses on just three things; achieving the best sound, the fastest speed, and the easiest experience. Compact and versatile, the Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface sports two natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps with switchable Air mode, super-low latency, and the same class-leading sound quality and digital conversion as the rest of the Scarlett range.

Compatible with UBC-C iPad Pro

Scarlett 2i2 is officially supported in use with USB-C iPad Pro. Setup and operation are simple: just plug in, fire up your favorite music-making app, and enjoy the Focusrite sound wherever you go.

And as with all Focusrite products, you’ll also benefit from a three-year warranty, and award-winning customer support.

Three Month Avid® Pro Tools® Artist Subscription with Complete Plugin Bundle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality - Hard to beat a Focusrite I purchased this wanting to upgrade from my old USB 2.0 Audio interface. I was greeted with superb high end, and an extremely flat frequency response. This thing's great
