Built to deliver top-shelf sound in a compact, bag-friendly, and easy-to-use format for singers, guitarists, and solo podcasters, the third-generation Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2x2 USB audio interface lets artists and content creators score pro-level tone with no learning curve, no matter where they go.

Equally capable for tracking vocals and instruments, the improved Scarlett microphone preamp features switchable phantom power for condenser mics and a selectable Air circuit, which adds clarity-enhancing brightness based on Focusrite's legendary ISA preamplifier. In addition to the single XLR mic input, the Scarlett Solo provides a single 1/4" input with an instrument/line switch that allows it to accept signal directly from a guitar, bass, synthesizer, or drum machine.

Unlocking the ability to record at standard CD quality or high-fidelity resolutions, the 24-bit / 192 kHz AD/DA converters ensure that signals are captured and reproduced with detail and accuracy. Listen through headphones or connect active speakers to the balanced 1/4" monitor outputs, and use selectable direct monitoring to hear your live input signal with no distracting echo or latency.

With its bus powering for uninhibited portability, space-saving USB Type-C connection, and extensive software bundle including virtual instruments, plug-in effects, loops, and more, the Scarlett Solo gives you plenty of powerful tools to kick-start your inspiration; just plug the Scarlett Solo into your Mac/Windows computer or iPad Pro (with USB Type-C), fire up your preferred audio recording software, and let the creativity flow.

Portable and Bus Powered

As the most compact interface in the Scarlett Series, the Scarlett Solo is rugged and ready to travel with you. Being bus powered via USB Type-C connectivity, it can be used in any room or even remote locations, with your preferred DAW on a Mac/Windows computer or using an iPad Pro equipped with USB Type-C and a music-making app such as Garageband, Cubasis 2, Auria Pro, Ampify Launchpad, Ampify Groovebox, or Ampify Blocs Wave.

Pristine, High-Resolution Conversion

Thanks to its high-performance 24-bit / 192 kHz AD/DA converters, the Scarlett Solo is equipped to capture any source from vocals to acoustic and electric instruments clearly and accurately, so you never have to worry about the interface clouding your sound.

Scarlett Mic Preamp with Customizable Tone

The upgraded third-generation Scarlett mic preamp features switchable 48V phantom power to accommodate your favorite condenser mic and a selectable Air setting, which reproduces the Air effect of Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp to impart enhanced brightness and openness on your vocal recordings.

Direct Instrument/Line Input

A dedicated high-impedance, high-headroom 1/4" input on the Scarlett Solo's front panel allows distortion-free recording of an instrument such as an electric guitar or bass, a synthesizer, or a drum machine, and there's no need for a DI box or an amplifier. At the press of a button, the 1/4" input can be used for a line-level source like a mixer's output or the line out from a guitar/bass amp.

Straightforward Controls and Level Indication

With the Scarlett Solo's Easy Start tool and independent gain knobs with multicolor gain halo meters, you'll have no trouble getting set up and dialing in the perfect levels. Plus, there are no menus or complicated controls to slow you down.

Headphone and Monitor Outputs

The balanced 1/4" TRS monitor outputs on the rear panel ensure hum-free connectivity with balanced studio monitors. For critical listening through headphones, just plug your earphones or headphones into the front-panel 1/4" headphone jack. A large knob is positioned next to the headphone jack for quick adjustment of the monitor and headphone volume.

Latency-Free Monitoring

No musician wants to record if they can't hear their performance clearly. Press the Scarlett Solo's direct monitor switch to listen to your input signals exactly as they are supposed to sound, with no latency and no distracting echo.

not picking up signal

Hi, mine was working but just stopped picking up the microphone consistently. I tried different cables and on and off. The analogue isn't showing on the control either...

This works perfectly as an interface between an old sound system and a laptop for our church livestream. It's simple, and exactly what we needed.

This is the ideal interface for a single XLR channel like we needed. It is priced right and has a very clean sound. The input indicator lights are also very nice.

Great multi-purpose package

Quick set up and easy to use. I recently bought a camera and this package so as to begin doing content/ vlogging. The microphone sounds great and the headphones are comfortable. PLUS what's great is that it's a 2 channel interface so I can plug my guitar into it and record using garage band.
