Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 Audio Interface (2nd Gen)


Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 (2nd Gen) is a 2 in/4 out USB audio interface.  It is perfect for both cueing a mix for performing or recording, and is fast and simple to use.  The compact unit consists of two Scarlett preamps producing lifelike quality sound, super-low latency, four analogue outputs, two microphone or instrument inputs and MIDI input/output.  Even though the 2i4 is small in comparison it does not compromise on the class-leading sound quality or digital conversion.

Inputs versus Outputs

The Scarlett 2i4 2nd generation provides flexibility when recording thanks to the line level inputs, Scarlett mic preamps and the two new instrument inputs.  For current music producers using outboard synths or live performances, the four analogue outputs and MIDI i/o are ideal.  For those looking to connect the interface to a DJ mixer or home speaker system, the four RCA outputs are the perfect connection.  There is a headphone output inclusive of gain control and the MIDI i/o connection is just right for sending/receiving MIDI notes from a Stage Piano.



The 2i4 is a compact, lightweight yet robust piece of equipment and with the addition of it being USB bus powered (no need for a main supply power connection) provides the ultimate flexibility when transporting the interface.  The Scarlett 2i4 already comes with top-quality, inbuilt hardware features.  It also comes with all the software and effects required to start recording, including the perfectly suited and exclusive version of Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack.  Also included is Ableton Live Lite, 2 GB of Loopmasters samples, The Softube Time and Tone Bundle, Red Plug-In Suite and Novation Bass Station VST and AU plug-in synthesiser.

Improved features

The second generation Scarlett 2i4 includes a number of enhanced features.  Firstly, the interface has been encased in a strong and smooth red metal.  There are new metal gain controls, enhanced input channels, redesigned instrument input; which can now handle seriously hot pick-ups, more gain structure in the latest Scarlett mic preamp; so levels can be accurately set, has class-leading conversion and the sample rates go up to 192kHz/24 bit.  The super-low latency allows for recording and monitoring software effects in real time.  Finally, there is now a built-in analogue protection circuitry covering both the inputs and outputs to protect against power surges, eliminating any potential damage that could be caused to the interface.
