USB recording interface
The Scarlett 2i2 is a two-in/two-out USB recording interface featuring two award-winning Focusrite preamps. Housed in an anodized aluminum unibody chassis, it is solid enough for the road. The front-panel Neutrik combination input can be used to connect line and instrument level signals as well as microphones. Unique halo signal indicators let you know you have a good signal level for recording. Red means the signal is clipping, and that gain should be reduced. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the level returns to a healthy level, at which point it will turn green. A large monitor dial provides a tactile control for speaker volume, while a high-quality headphone amp provides a clean signal.
