One of the world’s most recognizable and widely used recording interfaces, the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, just got some major upgrades and is now available at Guitar Center. The fourth-generation Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 includes a bevy of studio-friendly features that will make your next session come to life with ease thanks to two ultralow-noise mic pres, character-enhancing harmonic saturation, flagship converters and all the software you need to take your productions from cold and stale to red-hot masterpieces.
Hard(ware) to Beat
The fourth-generation Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 comes fully loaded with the hardware and I/O you need to create hit records. A pair of Scarlett series mic pres offer detailed, ultralow-noise response, and with phantom power, are a great match for any microphone. Coupled with the same converters that are found in Focusrite’s flagship RedNet interfaces, the Scarlett 2i2 packs a huge 120dB of dynamic range to capture and reproduce the most important performances.
Also included are two Hi-Z instrument inputs and a custom-designed headphone amp, so you can plug right in and play. The fourth-generation Scarlett 2i2 takes things a step farther with independent controls for headphones and monitors, so you can record, mix and play back your sessions with all the flexibility of a modern recording studio.
Bells and Whistles
What sets the fourth-generation Scarlett 2i2 apart, and truly makes it a top-tier offering for the home or mobile studio, is in the details. You can hone and craft your sound with industry-leading features, like Air Mode, to add all the flavor and tone of a big studio console to your sonic palette. This enhancement brings high-end presence and rich harmonic drive to vocals and instruments for that “radio-ready” sound you’re looking for. Dynamic Gain Halos make setting the perfect recording level quick and easy, so that you can focus on capturing the perfect performance without worrying about clipping or gain staging. You can even create your own samples by sending stereo audio from music apps and other software straight into your DAW with the Scarlett’s virtual inputs.
