Description 25 Years of experience

For more than 25 years, Focusrite has designed some of the most popular microphone preamps in the industry. This experience has been used to create the transparent, low-noise and low-distortion preamp found not only in the Scarlett 2i2 but also our flagship Firewire interface, the Liquid Saffire 56. Plenty of available headroom makes it suitable for moving coil, condenser and ribbon microphones regardless of the source. Phantom power is provided for mics that need it.

Plug straight in

The front panel Neutrik combination input can be used to connect line and instrument level signals as well as microphones. This makes it perfect for recording the output of a synthesizer or stage piano, whilst at the flick of a switch you can cater for the output of an electric or acoustic guitar.

Keep an eye on your levels

Unique halo signal indicators let you know that you’ve got a good signal level for recording. Red means that your signal is clipping, and that you should reduce the gain. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the level returns to a healthy level, at which point it will turn green.

Flexible monitoring options

A large monitor dial provides a tactile control for the volume of your speakers, whilst a high quality headphone amp provides a clean yet loud signal to headphones connected to the front panel socket. The direct monitor switch routes audio directly from the inputs to both the headphone and speaker outputs. This allows you to monitor the incoming signal with zero-latency.

    The Focusrite audio interface is great. Sounds very crisp and clear. The metal housing has a nice finish and it holds itself nicely on my studio desk. (Posted on 8/14/13)

  2. Great little box Review by Benjamin
    Rating

    After some trouble with a different interface, I decided to give Focusrite a shot. I have heard their stuff is great but it's always been out of the price range of me as a cheap-skate hobbyist. This is a great little box though. Low latency, very quiet inputs, very full-featured. I didn't expect as much as I got for the money. The inputs have pads for line-level inputs, with a switch that lowers the gain - or raises it if you want to plug in a guitar and/or bass.

    The software bundle is pretty astounding. There's Ableton Live, which is bundled with other manufacturer's stuff, but there's also 4 really nice plugs that are a step up from stock plugins. A compressor, an EQ, a gate (which is great, my DAW didn't come with a noise gate), and a nice reverb.

    But still, don't buy it for the software. Buy it for the hardware. Great sounding mic inputs. No noise or other nonsense. Great low-latency. Wowza. (Posted on 9/1/12)
