The Artist's Recording Studio in a Box

Start recording your first song right out of the box with the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Studio (4th Generation), a bundle that includes a 4th-generation Scarlett 2i2 interface, the company's CM25 MkIII large-diaphragm, cardioid condenser mic to capture vocals and instruments, an XLR mic cable, SH-450 closed-back headphones for accurate monitoring, and a complete recording toolkit with Focusrite's software bundle.

Offering a powerful combination of high-quality sound and user-friendliness in a compact and portable format for recording, podcasting, and streaming, the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (4th Generation) 2-in / 2-out USB-C audio interface lets musicians and creators capture high-quality audio with no learning curve, no matter where they go. The 4th Generation model features new ultra-low-noise microphone preamps with up to 69 dB of gain to capture the full potential of your mics. The upgraded, 24-bit / 192 kHz AD/DA converters provide a huge dynamic range up to 120 dB, matching the quality you'd find in a pro studio. The new Auto Gain mode automatically sets your recording level, and the Clip Safe mode prevents your signal from clipping, ensuring every take is a keeper. The Loopback feature lets podcasters, gamers, YouTubers, and streamers mix audio from other apps running on the computer, with the audio being recorded through the interface. The 2i2 4th Generation can now work in standalone mode without a computer, useful for live performances or monitoring-only situations.

Portable, Bus Powered, or Standalone

  • Both compact and lightweight, the Scarlett 2i2 is rugged and ready to securely stand on your desktop or travel with you. Being bus-powered via USB-C connectivity, it can be used in any room or even remote locations, with your preferred DAW on a Mac/Windows computer or on an iPad Pro equipped with a USB-C port.
  • The Scarlett 2i2 4th Generation can work in Standalone mode and still pass audio from the inputs to the outputs without the need for a computer. To power the unit, simply plug in an external USB power supply or USB power bank using the USB-C 5V input located on the back panel.

4th-Generation Pristine, High-Resolution Conversion

  • Scarlett 2i2 4th Generation uses the same studio-grade, 24-bit / 192 kHz AD/DA converters as Focusrite’s flagship RedNet interfaces, found in countless high-end studios worldwide.
  • Thanks to its high-performance converters that deliver a huge 120 dB of dynamic range, the Scarlett 2i2 is equipped to capture any source from vocals to acoustic and electric instruments clearly and accurately, so you don't have to worry about the interface clouding your sound.

4th-Generation Mic Preamps with Air Mode

  • With a huge 69 dB gain range, the two upgraded 4th-generation Scarlett XLR mic preamps capture the sound of the CM25 MkIII microphone and others with enhanced transparency and full detail. Switchable 48V phantom power is onboard to accommodate your condenser mics.
  • The selectable-per-channel Air Mode brings the bright and open sonic signature of a big studio console to your microphones. It adds high-end presence and rich harmonic drive to vocals and instruments, reproducing the Air effect of Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp.

Hi-Z Instrument and Line Inputs

  • The two 1/4" inputs on the Scarlett 2i2 4th Generation's front panel are specially designed to preserve the quality of your sound when connecting instruments with high impedance (Hi-Z) like electric guitars or basses—no need for a DI box or amplifier.
  • At the press of a button, each 1/4" input can be used to input line-level sources like a mixer's output or the line outs from guitar and bass amps.
