Oh, and the Scarlet 2i4 looks gorgeous too.
Focusrite's new generation of USB interfaces is already beloved by DJs, but this replacement for the Saffire 6 is an invaluable tool for musicians too. It's got features they demand like two award-winning Focusrite microphone/line/instrument preamps accessed via universal front-panel XLR/TRS sockets, combined with professional 24-bit, 96 kHz conversion, plus class-leading analogue and digital design from input to output to ensure pristine audio quality throughout the signal path.
Perfect for recording guitar, vocals, stereo piano (anything, really!) and capturing everything possible with high-quality condenser mics.
Direct monitoring mode removes the latencies associated with listening back to the input signal through the DAW. Record into the DAW in real time, whilst hearing a zero latency monitor feed from their input sources, controlled by a single knob for easy blending between direct monitoring and DAW playback.
Like other interfaces Focusrite's new-generation Scarlett series, input level controls feature a novel LED “signal halo” around the knob that indicates signal presence (green) and input overload (red), while a large-diameter silver volume knob gives you full and accurate control over monitor levels at all times, so whether you are mixing your music, or listening back to the track, the levels will always be in your control.
Scarlett 2i4 delivers high quality, 24-bit 96kHz audio to and from both Macintosh and Windows computers with USB 2.0 capability – and it’s bus powered so you only need to plug in the included USB cable to start making music.
