Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 4th Gen USB Audio Interface with Hi-Z Instrument, Loopback, and Air Mode

With a remarkable 69 dB gain range, the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 4th Gen USB Audio Interface offers superb clarity and detail for recording. You can easily connect an electric guitar to one of the Hi-Z instrument inputs, simulating using an amp, or you may use the excellent, high-quality line inputs to connect keyboards, synths, and groove boxes. The Scarlett 2i2 employs superior studio-grade converters with a 120dB dynamic range, which are comparable to those in Focusrite's RedNet interfaces, which are the industry standard for high-end studios all over the world. The interface also has an Air Mode that gives singers and instruments a high-end presence and a rich harmonic drive. This model has the appearance of a large studio console. Numerous user-friendly features are included with the Scarlett 2i2, including Auto Gain, which, when activated and played for ten seconds, automatically establishes the ideal recording level. During your recording session, the Clip Safe function simulates the help of a professional engineer by adjusting the gain to prevent clipping. Hardware features like Dynamic Gain Halos make it simple to watch input and output signals. Excellent playback and monitoring with any headphones is made possible by the potent, specially developed headphone amp with independent volume control. By utilizing Scarlett's virtual inputs, Loopback enables you to easily create bespoke audio samples from the sound output of your computer. With Focusrite's Easy Start feature, recording setup is a breeze. The interface also includes the Hitmaker Expansion software bundle, which offers a variety of studio tools for record-making, together with all the necessary applications, such as Ableton Live Lite and Avid Pro Tools Artist. Using Focusrite Control 2, you may direct control your recording session from your PC or Mac.

The Interface for Artists

The 4th-Generation preamps from 2i2 are Scarlett's clearest and most detailed yet, with a massive 69 dB gain range. Set up mics for your voice and guitar and connect them into the preamps. An electric guitar connected to one of the 2i2's hi-Z instrument inputs will sound exactly like an amp. Wherever you compose music, Scarlett brings Focusrite's expert sound quality with you. 

Discover Your Distinctive Sound

Scarlett's re-engineered Air mode brings your sound's distinctive character to the forefront of the mix for standout lead vocal and instrument tracks, providing a genuinely musical presence and rich harmonic drive, just like a vintage console in a high-end studio.

Simple Level Setting

With Scarlett's Dynamic Gain Halos, you can quickly and easily choose the ideal level to produce high-quality recordings each and every time.

Take Note of Each Detail

By pressing the red button, you can record directly from Focusrite's RedNet interfaces, which are the standard for high-end studios all around the world, at 192 kHz and 24-bit resolution. Utilise your recordings' every last bit of detail without compromising sound quality.

Listen to This

The greatest playback you have ever heard from Scarlett was made possible by a specially developed headphone amp and a vast dynamic range. Scarlett produces audio through high impedance headphones that is louder and clearer than ever. You can record, mix, and playback audio using 2i2's independent controls for your headphones and monitors.


Want examples? Loopback lets you create your own. The virtual inputs on 2i2 allow you to directly send stereo audio from your music apps and other software to your DAW.

It is So Simple

Connect your Scarlett, tell Focusrite's Easy Start tool how you want to use it, and let it walk you through all the software and setup steps along the way while providing you with recording advice and other useful information.

You Can Record, Mix, And Master Using All The Necessary Software

The Hitmaker Expansion bundle has everything you need to give your songs a large studio sound once you've begun with Pro Tools Artist or Ableton Live Lite recording software (both included). It offers an unequaled selection of record-making studio tools from the best brands in the business. With Antares Auto-Tune Access and Relab's LX480 Essentials reverb, you can create outstanding vocal tracks. Then, use a highly realistic copy of Marshall's SilverJubilee 2555-brought to you by masters in analogue modeling, Softube-to to heat up your guitar tones. Do you need some drums? No issue; XLN Audio's AddictiveDrums 2: Studio Rock Kit features the powerful sound of a fantastic drum kit plus tracks to get you going. Keys and synths? With XLN Audio's Addictive Keys and the venerable Massive from Native Instruments, you are well covered. Additionally, a two-month subscription to Landr Studio and an exclusive package of Focusrite plugins are included for when it comes time to mix and master our recordings.
