question

i have a scralett 2i2 signal processor will this be compatible or do i need a bigger signal processor with more outs and inputs?
Asked by: lex f.
The Scarlett 2i2 would not feature the connectivity to allow you to use this unit in addition to the preamps built into your unit. You can however use this unit as an alternative to the preamps in the Scarlett 2i2 by connecting the 1/4 outputs on the ART PRO MPA II to the 1/4 line inputs on the interface.

question

Hello, I am from Chile and i will go to the NYC store. My question is: can i purchase this product, but with the 220v input? (instead of 120v, as described in description) Thanks
Asked by: Benjamin
Unfortunately the ART products we carry here are 120 VAC compatible only. As a US dealer we are not able to source 220V versions of this product.
