The Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 2nd Gen USB Audio Interface is a second generation USB audio interface featuring two inputs and four outputs, with two Scarlett Mic/Instrument preamplifiers, a maximum audio resolution of 24-bit/192kHz, powered by USB, and equipped with Pro Tools | First & Ableton Live Lite recording software, with plug-ins and samples included. This USB audio interface is compatible with both Mac and PC computers.
Take the Scarlett 2i4 anywhere you like, as you can connect by just a single USB cable, and plug two microphones or instruments straight in, and easily record studio quality audio against a cue mix. The Scarlett 2i4 now comes with an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack, as well as Ableton Live Lite. It is also compatible with all other major DAWs, on Mac and PC.
Two combination inputs with natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, line level inputs and newly-designed instrument inputs let you record anything you want. The four analogue outputs and MIDI I/O make the Scarlett 2i4 ideal for the modern music producer using outboard synths or performing live. Use the 1/4" balanced jack outputs to connect to professional studio monitors, or the four RCA outputs to connect to a home speaker system or DJ mixer.
New super-low latency will bring confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. New metal gain controls and a sleeker red metal chassis reassure you of its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere. The Scarlett range also now operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz, and the input channels have evolved too. The latest Scarlett mic preamp features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned so it can handle seriously hot pick-ups. Finally, Focusrite have provided analogue protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.
