The most popular audio interface for artists across all genres, the third-generation Scarlett 2i2 provides two mic/line/instrument inputs allowing simultaneous recording and playback of up to two channels with independently controllable headphone and monitor outputs. The 2i2 features two upgraded third-generation Scarlett mic preamps with optional Air setting to reproduce the Air effect of Focusrite’s original ISA mic preamp, giving your vocal and acoustic recordings a brighter and more open sound. Equipped with high performance 24-bit/192kHz AD-DA converters, Scarlett 2i2 has the same professional sound quality found throughout the third-generation range. 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. Your Scarlett 2i2 comes with the Hitmaker Expansion, an unbeatable range of tried-and-tested studio tools from some of the biggest names in the business. The Hitmaker Expansion includes: Antares Auto-Tune Access, Relab LX480 Essentials, Softube Marshall® Silver Jubilee 2555, XLN Audio Addictive Keys, XLN Audio Addictive Drums 2, Three Month Splice Sounds Subscription, Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC, and Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite.
