Regular price $269.00 Sale

Focusrite's compact and flexible 2-in, 4-out USB audio interface makes it easy to perform and record studio quality audio against a cue mix. Take it anywhere, connect by USB and get two natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, super-low latency, MIDI I/O, four analogue outputs and the same class-leading sound quality and digital conversion as the rest of the latest Scarlett range.

Focusrite interfaces are the perfect partner for Pro Tools, so Scarlett 2i4 comes with Pro Tools | First recording software in the box, as well as Ableton Live Lite and a suite of software and samples so you can start recording straight away. As you’d expect, it works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC.

Easily make studio-quality recordings that sound just the way you intended. Record anything you want using two combination inputs, with natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, 48v phantom power, line level inputs and newly-designed instrument inputs that can handle even the loudest guitar pick-ups. Four analogue outputs, MIDI I/O and cue mixing make Scarlett 2i4 ideal for live performances. It also gives you a loud headphone output, two balanced outputs and four RCA outputs for connecting to your speakers or mixer.

Don’t let interface latency ruin your performance. Scarlett 2i4’s new super-low latency lets you enhance your recording or performance in ways that are simply impossible with any other interface in this class, like enabling real-time guitar amp simulation and vocal reverb (subject to your software, settings and computer).

Compose, record, edit, save and export your music straight away, with time-unlimited versions of industry-standard music software: Ableton Live Lite and Pro Tools | First - Focusrite Creative Pack, which features 12 additional plug-ins including the Eleven Lite for real life guitar amp emulations and Black Op for iconic distortions and overdrives. You also get Softube's Time and Tone bundle, the Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite, Novation's Bass Station Virtual synthesiser and 2GB of Loopmasters samples. All the software is simple enough for beginners, yet sophisticated enough for advanced users.

Scarlett 2i4 works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC, and all the software included is simple enough for beginners, yet sophisticated enough for advanced users. Compact, tough and entirely powered by USB, you don’t even need to carry a power cable to record or perform anywhere you like with Scarlett 2i4.

No matter how loud you play, or how hot your pick-ups, the newly-designed instrument input can handle it. You'll be free to play without the worry of unwanted distortion. The latest generation Scarlett 2i4 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.

Focusrite completely redesigned the instrument input so it can handle even the hottest guitar pick-ups, and they’ve made it easier than ever to set your levels accurately. They've also built in new analogue protection circuitry across the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.

Converting your performance into digital audio and back again is the most important part of the recording process. Focusrite have been making class-leading converters for over 20 years, and Scarlett 2i4 has the best converters of any interface in its class. 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. Setting the perfect level couldn’t be easier, thanks to Focusrite's signature halos around the gain knobs. They glow a reassuring shade of green when you’re recording at the perfect volume. If they turn red, it’s time to back off.
