Focusrite introduce the Scarlett 2i2 USB interface

Hot on the heels of their recently released Scarlett 18i6 and 8i6 interfaces, Focusrite snap back with a smaller yet equally powerful 2 in/2 out, 96 KHz, 24-bit USB interface.

The Scarlet 2i2 features an updated smooth contoured anodised aluminum unibody case, which will ensure extended life on the road and features two Focusrite microphone pre-amplifiers under the hood. It’s armed with 2 line/mic/instrument Neutrik XLR/¼” TRS Combo inputs, 2 line/instrument switches and 2 halo signal indicator gain knobs that show green when the signal is at a good level (above -24dBFS) and red when it’s clipping.

There’s also a 48V Phantom power switch, direct monitor switch and extra large monitor level dial. Finally, a ¼” TRS  headphone out and two balanced  ¼” TRS  monitor outputs take  care of the connection capabilities.

It ships with Ableton Live Lite 8 and The Focusrite Scarlett plug-in suite. Keep an eye on Juno for the release date and price.
