The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen is a high-quality USB audio interface that allows you to easily record and produce professional-grade audio on your computer. With two inputs and two outputs, the 2i2 allows you to connect a variety of audio sources, such as microphones and instruments, and record them directly to your computer. The interface features improved Scarlett preamps with switchable phantom power and a selectable Air circuit, which adds clarity-enhancing brightness based on Focusrite's ISA preamplifier. The interface also has 24-bit/192kHz AD/DA converters and selectable direct monitoring in mono or stereo. The 2i2 is portable and bus-powered, with a USB Type-C connection and a software bundle including virtual instruments, plug-in effects, and loops. It is compatible with Mac/Windows computers and iPad Pro devices with USB Type-C. The 2i2 has independent gain knobs and multicolor gain halo meters for easy level adjustment, and independent headphone and monitor outputs with separate volume knobs. It also has a latency-free monitoring switch for hearing your live input signal without delay.
