Focusrite 2i4 overview

  • 1Description

Focusrite's second-generation Scarlett 2i4 is a portable audio interface designed specifically for use in a computer environment. Lightweight at 1.9 lb, the device sports two balanced outputs, two Scarlett combination inputs, instrument/line switches, 48V Phantom power, direct monitoring, and the ability to draw power via USB. You can also monitor—or send cue mixes out to instrumentalists—by means of four unbalanced RCA jacks mounted on the rear panel.

The interface is designed to operate handily at resolutions and sample rates of up to 24-bit/192 kHz, and its combination input jacks render it suitable for tracking instruments with much in the way of headroom and little in the way of distortion. A MIDI input and output round out the unit, allowing you to manipulate your DAW by means of a MIDI-controller, and thus, to program software instruments, to automate audio via knobs or faders, and to instantiate other commands.

In addition to its two balanced monitor outputs, the Scarlett 2i4 offers a volume-controllable headphone output on the front. Metal gain controls and a red metal chassis provide a durable construction which can be taken on the road. The 2i4 provides a round-trip latency as low as 2.74 ms at 96 kHz, allowing you to record and monitor processed sound sources in real time.

This interface includes versions of Pro Tools and Ableton Live, as well the Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite (AAX, Audio Units, VST) which delivers modules based on the classic Focusrite Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor hardware. Also included is the Softube Time and Tone Pack for further sonic exploration within your DAW.

    Focusrite 2i4 reviews

    Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio Interface (2nd Generation) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Audio Interface We purchased this for recording church programs using a basic laptop. The preamplifiers have very clean sound and very low noise levels. Operating off USB power makes the system easy to setup and avoids cable clutter. This is a huge improvement over the built-in sound card and unreliable 1/8 record and headphone jacks. This unit has 10dB input level switches which insures we won't have signal overload for any of our inputs. We use this with the free Audacity software and produce clean and accurate recordings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, durable chassis I had the Saffire 6 USB interface, and have the Liquid Saffire 56 at home for my main studio, so this was a no brainer for live performance. I needed something with MIDI, so this was the most obvious choice for an AD box. I installed the recent Windows 10 upgrade through a downloadable file, so that meant I had to download a specific driver that was geared towards that. Took me a while to figure it out, but otherwise, installation was fine. I've used it for two shows so far, and it's rock solid.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Despite its popularity, I regret I bought this one. I made a big research before I bought this Scarlett 2i4. And yet, I am totally disappointed, and I cannot bring it back since I live in another country. About every minute the sound just stops for a second! No matter what I tried, every solution possible, changing the preferences of my PC, of the USB hubs, the power consumption, the buffer size, anything you can think about. It still persists, and not only in my DAW (Cubase 8.5) but while listening to music, too. This is awful, and I wish I hadn't buy this one!
