Focusrite Scarlett 2i2

An audio interface that connects to your computer via a USB cable, which also powers it. An external soundcard in other words. The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is one of the most used audio interfaces in the home studio environment. Laptops tend to have base-level soundcards, an external audio interface can amp up the quality allowing users to make high-grade recordings at home. Even for hearing back what one has produced this helps as it has better audio output quality too.

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 can be connected to two microphones and can send out a signal to one pair of speakers. These should preferably be reference speakers or studio monitors as they are called at times. They are flat speakers and portray the sound as it is, so one can tweak and sculpt it to clean the song up and make a good mix of it. This helps a lot with the mastering of the song later.

On the front of the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 there are halo light indicators if your audio is clipping they will be red, and green otherwise so you are in the clear and the recording is clean.

Supporting multiple sample rates, the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 can handle 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz, 96kHz, 176.4kHz and 192kHz. All one needs to do is to install the driver and you are ready to go.


Focusrite is a brand that has been in the audio market for a few decades, it is also the parent company of Martin Audio and ADAM Audio; two top-quality audio brands.

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is available for a mid-range price.
