The third generation of the Scarlett 2i2

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, now in its third edition, is a high-quality compact USB audio interface for Mac and PC. It features two combined XLR/jack inputs for connecting microphones as well as synthesizers or other line-level audio sources and two balanced outputs for monitoring. The 2i2 is equipped with two high-grade Scarlett microphone preamps with switchable 48V phantom power, as well as the brand-new Air Mode. Electric guitars and basses can also be plugged in directly, as the input impedance of the front sockets can be set to Hi-Z. The Scarlett 2i2 Studio Bundle also includes a CM25 MkIII condenser microphone, a pair of HP60 MkIII headphones, and a three-metre XLR cable: An unbeatable complete package at a budget-friendly price. An audio interface provides a connection between a computer and various external devices. The computer in turn requires special software in order to process the incoming signals. Focusrite offers a selection of software you can use to get started, including the digital audio workstations (DAWs) Ableton Live Lite and ProTools Artist, and a three-month subscription to Splice Sounds. Focusrite’s Hitmaker Expansion software bundle is also included.

Love is in the “Air”

Focusrite’s outstanding reputation for building high-quality mic preamps has been established for over three decades now, and much of this expertise has been included in the third generation of Scarlett interfaces via the brand-new integrated Air Mode, which when selected opens up and brightens the high end in a way that is intended to emulate their classic ISA preamps – or, as the British manufacturer puts it, to provide “unique high-end detail for vocals and acoustic guitar”. Decades of experience really do speak for quality in this case, and the AD/DA converters provide optimum clarity and detail with a maximum bit depth of 24 bits and frequency rates of up to 192kHz.

Dynamic duo

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is a compact desktop interface and is therefore particularly suited to home and bedroom studios, in addition to which the studio bundle includes everything you need for your first recording sessions. It is also USB-powered and sturdily built, yet lightweight and portable. The flexible and versatile inputs, coupled with the two outputs (ideal for active monitors), should be fit for any purpose. Unlike the larger members of the Scarlett series, the 2i2 lacks MIDI connectivity. This should not pose too much of a problem, however, since most modern keyboards feature a USB interface as standard and can thus be connected directly to the computer.

About Focusrite

Founded in 1985 by Rupert Neve, Focusrite quickly made a name for itself with high-quality analogue consoles. Today, the company markets audio interfaces, mic preamps, consoles, analogue EQs, and channel strips as well as hardware and software for digital audio processing. The company is based in High Wycombe, England, and has won numerous industry awards. In addition to the Focusrite Pro line, the company also has subsidiaries that include Adam Audio, Novation, and iOS app creator Ampify Music.

Get started right away

The newly designed “gain halos” (the red and green LED rings around the gain controls on the front panel) are intended to make it easier to adjust gain settings, so that budding producers can start recording immediately after buying the interface. To make things simpler still, Focusrite has included a “Quick Start Tool” and put together an impressive and comprehensive package of free software, some in the box and some available for download, which includes Ableton Live Lite, Pro Tools Artist, Focusrite Red Plugin Suite, Softube Time and Tone Bundle, a three-month subscription to Splice Sounds, and a software tool of four XLN Audio Addictive Keys of your choice.

Different programs found in the Hitmaker expansion

Hitmaker Expansion

The Hitmaker Expansion contains software tools for further enhancing your music productions: Guitar sounds with Softube Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555, tuning options for vocals with Antares Auto-Tune, reverb effects with Relab's LX480 Essentials, the XLN Audio® Addictive Drums 2: Studio Rock kit, and a choice of one of four instruments from XLN Audio Addictive Keys. Additionally, an EQ and compressor are offered with the Focusrite Red Plug-in Suite, a full channel strip offering an EQ, de-esser, compressor, limiter, gate, and expander with Bx_console Focusrite SC, and finally, two months with the Landr Studio mastering tools with five free masters to add the finishing touch to your projects. With the Hitmaker Expansion, you get both the interface and a selection of tools, so you have all the software you need to get started.

In the spotlight: Solo, 2i2, 4i4, 8i6, 18i8, and 18i20

The third generation of Scarlett interfaces comprises the Solo, 2i2, 4i4, 8i6, 18i8, and 18i20 as well as two bundles, the Solo Studio and 2i2 Studio, each of which includes a microphone and headphones. The abbreviations 2i2, 4i4, etc. specify the number of inputs and outputs. In other words, “2i2” stands for two (i)nputs and two outputs, and 4i4 accordingly stands for four (i)nputs and four outputs. The “Solo” bends the rules in this respect, since it actually features two inputs and two outputs – the name instead suggests that it is intended for solo artists or singer/songwriters.

Perfect to use in a small recording studio setup
CoJR 22.04.2020
I bought the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Studio 3rd Gen package last year after wanting to return to music production at home for some time. This package has been perfect for all of my needs in recording vocals, guitars and keyboards. All of the components included are of a high calibre when comparing to other recording equipment I have bought separately in the past.

The audio interface is compact and well designed with several nice features, such as the glowing halo rings around the input gain knobs. The condenser microphone is of a perfect weight and size for a home studio setup, and the headphones are quite comfortable to wear. All of these components produce pristine quality, which in my opinion for the cost makes this package very competitive.

Thomann did a great job delivering the package to my apartment on time. When combined with a computer/laptop, a set of studio monitors and the relevant instruments for recording, this bundle is perfect for musicians across all skill levels recording at home or on the road.

Amazing value for money!
Johnny Ska 04.04.2022
Been using this for about 2 years now, and I am completely satisfied with every part of this set.
Not a single problem, amazing sound, electric/classical/acoustic guitar recording into Reaper was never more fun...!
Software goodies also interesting, and Focusrite subscription comes with nice occasional offers!

Does what it says on the box ;)
Greyswandir 08.02.2022
Generally I am very happy with the set. Sound is good, all the components look and work nicely and it is enough for my needs for now.

Some gripes: Headphones are comfortable, maybe the most comfortable of this type I had, still, could be a bit bigger, as my ears start to hurt after a couple of hours.

The mic stand could definately be a little bit sturdier/stronger, as it cannot hold the mic fully extended on it's own and needs some weights put on the other end.

This is the best recording equipment for Voice Overs.
The Speiller 24.03.2022
I've had this kit for over a year now and couldn't be happier, honestly its excellent. Provided you can create a room with dead sound (no echo) this piece of kit is fantastic and extremely good value for money. On live sessions all engineers have been very impressed with the quality. I've wasted time on other cheaper recording systems (snowball gimicks etc) so spend your money wisely on quality recording tools and you will be happily recording for a long time.
