First, the kit provides the Scarlett 2i2 USB interface, which gives you two inputs for your microphones and offers pro-quality preamps for a pristine signal.

Next, you’ll note the Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone, which is well suited for recording the spoken word. Also included are a tripod mic stand with a fixed boom arm, as well as a gooseneck nylon pop filter and an XLR mic cable. The gooseneck nylon pop filter can be used to reduce plosives in vocal performances, and it attaches to the included tripod mic stand. An XLR cable allows you to connect your microphone to the Scarlett 2i2.

The kit also gives you a pair of over-ear, closed-back headphones. Use these headphones to monitor your voice while ensuring there's no bleed from your headphones into the mic, thanks to their closed-back construction. 

With the interface, microphone, cable, stand, pop filter, and headphones, you'll have almost everything you need to get started recording, all you need to bring to the table is your own computer.

Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2x2 USB Audio Interface (3rd Generation)

Built to deliver top-shelf sound in a compact, bag-friendly, and easy-to-use format for singer-songwriters, guitarists, and podcaster duos, the third-generation Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 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 two improved Scarlett microphone preamps feature switchable phantom power for condenser mics and a selectable-per-channel Air circuit, which adds clarity-enhancing brightness based on Focusrite's legendary ISA preamplifier. The two XLR-1/4" combo inputs are outfitted with switches that allow them to accept signal directly from electric instruments such as guitar and bass or from line-level sources such as stereo mixer outputs or a hot feed from a 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 enjoy independent control of the headphone and speaker volume settings. Use selectable direct monitoring in mono or stereo 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 2i2 gives you plenty of powerful tools to kick-start your inspiration; just plug the Scarlett 2i2 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

Both compact and lightweight, the Scarlett 2i2 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 2i2 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 Preamps with Customizable Tone

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

Instrument/Line Input Switches

The XLR-1/4" combo inputs on the Scarlett 2i2's front panel allow distortion-free recording of instruments such as electric guitar and bass, synthesizers, or drum machines, and there's no need for a DI box or amplifiers. At the press of a button, each 1/4" input can be used for line-level sources like a mixer's stereo output or the line outs from guitar and bass amps.

Straightforward Controls and Level Indication

With the Scarlett 2i2'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.

Independent 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. Separate knobs are provided for quick and independent adjustment of the monitor and headphone volumes.

Latency-Free Monitoring

No musicians want to record if they can't hear their performance clearly. Use the Scarlett 2i2's direct monitor switch to listen to your input signals in mono or stereo, exactly as they are supposed to sound, with no latency and no distracting echo.

Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Black)

The black Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone is designed to bring sonic performance distilled from the company's reputable studio condensers to the realm of home recording for podcasters, musicians, and content creators. The capsule features a low-mass, side-address diaphragm with a cardioid polar pattern for rejecting ambience and noise behind the mic, a welcome trait when tracking in untreated rooms. It comes with a pivoting stand mount for straightforward attachment to your existing mic stand.

The AT2020's extended, linear frequency response enables the flexibility to accurately reproduce signals from a wide variety of sources such as vocals, speech, and instruments. High SPL handling and wide dynamic range allow the AT2020 to capture loud signals with minimal noise and distortion. Since the AT2020 is a solid-state condenser with an XLR output, it should be mated to an XLR-equipped mic preamp capable of sending 48V phantom power.

Studio Quality at Home

Designed for home/project studio applications, this side-address cardioid condenser mic is engineered for extended frequency response and enhanced transient response. With its studio-quality articulation and intelligibility, the AT2020 is ideal for musicians, streamers, podcasters, and other content creators.

Cardioid Polar Pattern

The AT2020's cardioid polar pattern primarily picks up sound in front of the mic while being far less sensitive to sound behind the mic, allowing it to capture your voice or instrument with reduced background noise.

Ready for Daily Use

Along with its rugged construction and high-performance specifications, the AT2020 provides reliability, high SPL handling, and wide dynamic range. It comes with a space-saving stand mount for 5/8"-27 threaded stands, an adapter for 3/8"-16 threaded stands, and a protective pouch.

Features at a Glance

  • Custom-engineered 0.6" low-mass diaphragm
  • Extended frequency response and superior transient response
  • High SPL handling and wide dynamic range provide great versatility
  • Cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source
  • Stand mount allows placement in tight spots

Auray PFSS-55 Pop Filter with Gooseneck with Spring-Loaded Desktop Clamp

The PFSS-55's double-layered nylon filter gently disperses the explosive rush of air from speaking and breathing, while protecting your microphone from corrosive moisture.

The flexible gooseneck makes it easy to position the filter exactly where you need it, the spring-loaded, clothespin clamp provides fast and easy mounting. The locking bolt holds the PFSS-55 firmly into place. These features make the PFSS-55 Pop Filter ideal for desktops and also compatible with microphone stands.

Polsen HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones

The HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen offer a solution for experiencing rich and natural sound when listening to music through a mobile device or monitoring a podcast on your computer. These headphones can also be used for DJ work, thanks to the swiveling earcups that let you monitor audio while keeping one ear free.

The HPC-A30-MK2's over-ear design isolates the sound and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions in loud environments, such as a club or on the go. The 10' cable also gives you the freedom to move around while working and terminates in a 1/8" TRS stereo plug, which is compatible with most mobile devices and computers. In addition, a stereo 1/4" adapter is included to plug into a stereo or mixing board.

Mobile

The HPC-A30-MK2 headphones deliver a rich sound for listening to audio on a mobile device. Whether you're listening on a smartphone, an iPod, or a tablet, these headphones deliver detailed sound even in noisy environments.

Over-Ear Design

The over-ear design isolates sound in loud environments and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions. This design is good for listening to music on a busy street, and for DJs who need to monitor their audio in a noisy club.

DJ Applications

The headphones are suitable for DJ applications and include a tuned bass response for low-end clarity. The pivoting earcups are ideal for one-ear or on-the-shoulder monitoring. A padded headband offers to keep you comfortable during a lengthy session.

Broadcast and Podcast

The headphones allow for monitoring audio on a laptop or in a home studio as well as recording a vlog on a smartphone.

Swiveling and Rotating Earcups

If you're a DJ who likes to keep one ear free, you can swivel one of the earcups for on-the-shoulder monitoring. The earcups also rotate 90° so you can turn one of the earcup outward for one-ear handheld monitoring.

10' Cable

A headphone cable that's too short is almost like sitting on the sidelines—you can't be part of the action. If you need to move around while you work, the 10' cable will allow you to move about freely.
