Focusrite's Most Versatile USB-Powered Audio Interface

Details

Ideal for anyone who needs a cue mix for performing or recording

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.

Pro Tools First

Focusrite interfaces are perfect partners for Pro Tools, so Scarlett 2i4 comes with Pro Tools | First - Focusrite Creative Pack, as well as Ableton Live Lite recording software 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.

What is latency?

Scarlett 2nd Generation interfaces have lower latency than any other USB audio interfaces. Take a look at this short video to see for yourself how latency can cause problems when recording, and find out what you can do to overcome it.

Sound Like You

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.

The Performer's Interface

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.

Recording a Duo?

If you want to record two artists at once, or you’re a multi-instrumentalist who wants to connect mics, instruments and line level gear, take a look at Scarlett 6i6. It has twice as many analogue inputs as Scarlett 2i4 and two separate headphone outputs.

Want Even More I/O?

If you want eight Scarlett preamps available all the time, take a look at Scarlett 18i20. It is beautiful, rack-mountable and capable of handling all your day-to-day studio tasks with quality and flexibility Scarlett 18i20

Real Time Effects

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).

Addictive Keys

The Addictive Keys virtual instrument from XLN Audio is included for free with all Focusrite audio interfaces. One full licence per account is available for existing customers as well as new customers.

Start Recording Today

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.

Scarlett 2i4 works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC, and all the included software is simple enough for beginners, yet sophisticated enough for advanced users.

Record and Perform Anywhere

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.

Designed For Guitarists

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

New Generation – Better In Every Way

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

*Super-low latency depends on your choice of software, settings and computer.

Crisp and Clear Conversion

Converting your performance into digital audio and back again is the most important part of the recording process. We’ve 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.

Find the Perfect Level

Setting the perfect level couldn’t be easier, thanks our unique haloes 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.

Plugin Collective

The world is full of innovative software companies, creating a wealth of powerful plug-ins. With such variety, you’ll want to find exactly the right plug-ins for you, and use them in real time, thanks to Scarlett 2nd gen’s super-low latency environment. To help you on this mission, we’ve formed the ‘Plug-in Collective’, working with the very best to bring you exclusive plug-in offers and content every month.
