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.
Plus, because Focusrite interfaces are the perfect partner for Pro Tools, this studio pack comes with Pro Tools | First – Focusrite Creative Pack, as well as Ableton Live Lite recording software with a further suite of software and samples so you can start recording straight away.

If you want your recordings to sound as good as your performances, you want this studio pack. It gives you an interface with the best sound quality and digital conversion in its class, plus a stunning large diaphragm condenser microphone that captures beautifully crisp and clean audio. Combined, they’ll make sure your recordings that sound as true to life as possible. You also get a long mic cable and a stand clip, so you can get started straight away.
The art of recording is all about getting lost in the music. You don’t want background noises interfering or distracting you when you’re trying to concentrate. The closed-back headphones in this studio pack block out background noise and give you absolutely stunning playback. They let you hear everything you want to hear, and nothing you don’t – so you can stay entirely focused while recording and mixing. Of course, you can connect and power professional monitors to the interface as well.
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 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.

New Generation – Better In Every Way
The latest generation Focusrite Scarlett Solo MK2 USB audio interface studio pack 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 input so it 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 Focusrite Scarlett Solo MK2 USB audio interface studio pack is no exception, with the best converters of any interface in its class. And 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 to haloes around the gain knobs that 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.
