Great entry level audio interface

Rhyeth, 19.05.2018
The Scarlett 2i2 is perfect for those looking to pick up their first audio interface or if you're in need of a simple, back-to-basics additional interface for whatever reason.

The hardware itself is fairly solid - simple controls, easy to use right out of the box and it looks quite nice. It's got a sleek brushed metal finish and the red really stands out. It feels sturdy enough, though the overall quality of the knobs and switches is a little disappointing. They won't snap off but they do feel a little bit looser than I'd personally like. Given the price though, it's to be expected.

Once the drivers are installed, the 2i2 really shines. Super low latency (though this does depend on the host machine) and no audible hissing or ambient noise through the inputs. It's USB powered so you'll be able to forego using an external power supply, enabling you to save on socket usage for other instruments or devices.

The input gain/trims knobs are pretty nice - the ring around the knob lights up based on the level of the incoming signal, so it's easy to avoid clipping as you'll get some visual feedback if the incoming audio is distorting. The Monitor knob controls both the outgoing volume and the volume of the direct input, should you enable it with the accompanying switch. It's a nice feature to have if you're not routing the signal through anything on the PC and are looking to just get your audio straight from the source to the speakers.

There's two standard balanced outs on the back, left and right channels respectively, along with the USB port for connecting it to your PC/Mac. Unfortunately it doesn't sport any MIDI in/outs but given the price it is somewhat understandable. The Scarlett 2i4 and above does have MIDI in/outs alongside unbalanced inputs, if you're looking for a little more control.


All in all it's a very solid little audio interface which is perfect if you're looking to just run one or two lines into it. You've got the option of outputting to headphones along with the external speakers and both inputs support 1/4" jacks as well as XLR, so it's versatile enough. If you're looking to connect more than just one or two lines, or have multiple outputs, I'd recommend opting for a model that has more ins and outs or perhaps trying something along the Steinberg range.

Definitely can't go wrong with buying this thing

bassheder, 09.07.2018
Where do I use this?
Using this to record professionally at home.

Pros
No external power supply, phantom power supply, seperate headphone jack with separate volume control, line/inst switch on both inputs, gain control, direct monitor, high sample rate conversion, plug and play

Cons
Couldn't activate some of the free downloads using the serial number.

Should you buy it?
For a 2I/2O audio interface, you really cannot go wrong with this one.
