About Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 MK2 USB Audio Interface

The Best Selling USB Audio Interface in the World

Perfect for recording two mics at once

This is our compact yet versatile 2-in, 2-out USB audio interface. It gives singer songwriters two natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps and the same class-leading sound quality and digital conversion as the rest of the latest Scarlett range. Take it anywhere, connect by USB, plug your mics and guitars straight in, and simply start recording. Focusrite interfaces are the perfect partner for Pro Tools, so Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 MK2 USB audio interface comes with Pro Tools | First recording software, as well as Ableton Live Lite and a suite of software and samples so you can start recording straight away. As you’d expect, it works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC.

What is latency?

Scarlett 2nd Generation interfaces have lower latency than any other USB audio interfaces. Take a look at this short video to see for yourself how latency can cause problems when recording, and find out what you can do to overcome it.

Sound Like You

Easily make studio quality recordings that sound just the way you intended. Connect your microphones, guitars and line level equipment to two newly designed instrument inputs, both with natural-sounding Scarlett preamps and 48V phantom power.

Effects In Real Time

Don’t let latency hold you back. Enhance your recordings in ways that are simply impossible with any other interface in this class, like enabling real-time guitar amp simulation and vocal reverb (depending on your software, settings and computer). The Addictive Keys virtual instrument from XLN Audio is included for free with all Focusrite audio interfaces. One full licence per account is available for existing customers as well as new customers.

Start Recording Today

Compose, record, edit, save and export your music straight away, with time-unlimited versions of industry-standard music software: Ableton Live Lite and Pro Tools | First – Focusrite Creative Pack, which features 12 additional plug-ins including the Eleven Lite for real life guitar amp emulations and Black Op for iconic distortions and overdrives. You also get Softube’s Time and Tone bundle, the Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite, Novation’s Bass Station virtual synthesiser and 2GB of Loopmasters samples. Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 MK2 USB audio interface works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC, and all the software included is simple enough for beginners, yet sophisticated enough for advanced users.

Record Absolutely Anywhere

Never miss another moment of inspiration. Lay down some ideas at a friend’s house, or record your next open mic night. Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 MK2 USB audio interface is compact, lightweight and sturdy enough to take with you anywhere. You don’t need a power supply, either – just connect with a USB cable and start recording.

Designed for Guitarists

No matter how loud you play, or how hot your pick-ups, the newly-designed instrument inputs can handle it. You’ll be free to play without the worry of unwanted distortion.

New Generation – Better In Every Way

The latest generation Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 MK2 USB audio interface is packed full of upgrades. It operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz with new super-low latency* that lets you record and monitor with software effects in real time. We completely redesigned the instrument inputs so they can handle even the hottest guitar pick-ups, and we’ve made it easier than ever to set your levels accurately. We’ve also built in new analogue protection circuitry across the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.

Crisp and Clear Conversion

Converting your performance into digital audio and back again is the most important part of the recording process. We’ve been making class-leading converters for over 20 years, and Scarlett 2i2 has the best converters of any interface in its class. You can hear the difference! Every part of your recording will be beautifully crisp and clear, even when you’re playing softly. This means you can amplify your quieter moments without any unwanted hiss or buzzing.

Used By the Best

What do Sam Smith, Foo Fighters and Massive Attack have in common? Not a lot, admittedly, but they all use Focusrite equipment because they agree with us that sound is everything.

Find the Perfect Level

Setting the perfect level couldn’t be easier, thanks our unique haloes around the gain knobs. They glow a reassuring shade of green when you’re recording at the perfect volume. If they turn red, it’s time to back off. The world is full of innovative software companies, creating a wealth of powerful plug-ins. With such variety, you’ll want to find exactly the right plug-ins for you, and use them in real time, thanks to Scarlett 2nd gen’s super-low latency environment. To help you on this mission, we’ve formed the ‘Plug-in Collective’, working with the very best to bring you exclusive plug-in offers and content every month.
