Focusrite Scarlett 2i2

Bought one of this Audio Interface to my studio and like it some much that decided to change my old Audio Interface to this one too. Preamplifiers are very good so even if you have a budget microphone you will get much more good sound than expected. I tried it with my friends Audio Technica AT2020 and the result was very good. With my Rode NTK microphone it sounds Great. You can adjust volume of monitors and headphones seperately. It's very good when you mixing something and want to check both on headphones and monitors. It's also good when someone going to record your voice so you don't need a mixer or anything else. I don't check guitar on it's preamps but what I see on videos is enough to say it's what you need. You can download 4 VST plugins and use them to mix your tracks too. First time I bought it there was a CD with drivers but in my second box there wasn't any CD so now you must download drivers from site but I think it's not a problem, it's even better you get last version of them. So if you have a small or home studio, if you are a sound engineer or beatmaker, if you just started to learn something or you are a professional don't think much, buy it.

Decent entry level interface

This is a good choice if you are just getting started with recording. You can get a lot done with just two tracks, and the Scarlett 2i2 does everything you need (apart from MIDI) at a quality that you would have paid thousands for not that long ago.

Most importantly, the drivers work fine and it's stable. It works with ASIO4All. If your computer goes into a sleep state you may need to unplug it and plug it back in again to get it to work properly - that's pretty common though.

Sound quality is good, with very little noise. Build quality is decent - it's not studio quality (the jack sockets on the front rock a bit when inserting cables), but it's what you would expect for the price.

The built in headphone amp is a bit weedy, meaning you need to use high-sensitivity cans or an outboard preamp. Also, the phantom power is lacking in power; it's fine for condenser mics, but probably won't be sufficient to power outboard devices like a DI box or preamp. The little light up rings around the preamp knobs that indicate signal level aren't as easy to keep an eye on as a more conventional level meter, but they do the job. The direct-monitoring is a bit poor, in that it sounds noticeably different from the recorded sound, but it's still usable if you want to monitor that way.

Very good value

I am very pleased with this purchase, but if you want midi in you want to get the 2i4.

IN: The pre-amps in this are great, they sound clear even with the gain pretty high. I have recorded through microphone, straight from an acoustic guitar pre-amp, and even from the headphone out of a guitar amp. These record the sound perfectly. The line/inst gain switches are also a very useful addition. When it does distort however it is not very pleasant.

OUT: the output from these is phenomenal, such clear noise-less soundcard. The drivers it comes with are superb, my DAW runs so much faster and smoother using this soundcard and the ASIO drivers. Latency is almost non-existent even using my old slow computer.

The direct monitor is a great feature although it is sometimes a bit annoying to get the relative volume levels of the input and the backing track where you would like them when recording to something.

I think I covered the features above, but I am a big fan of the line/inst switch and the direct monitor function. The combined XLR/jack inputs are a nice touch too.

The build quality is okay. The shell is sturdy enough but it feels pretty light and the knobs are a little cheap feeling.

Overall this is great value and sounds superb but I wish I went for the 2i4 to get the midi in/out for a bit more flexibility in my studio.

So Simple To Use

This interface is absolutely perfect for people starting off. It is easy to use and very user friendly. It is small and doesn't get in the way. Aswel as being a brilliant interface, it is aestethically very pleasing to the eye. It also has extremely good preamps which add to its sound quality.
