Scarlett 2i4 from Focusrite is a two-input/four-output USB audio interface featuring two Focusrite preamps with phantom power and 10 dB pads. The unit is USB bus-powered and housed in a compact, anodized-aluminum unibody chassis, making it an ideal choice for musicians and digital DJs.

Compatible with both Mac- and Windows-based computers, the interface features two Neutrik combo XLR/TRS 1/4" inputs that accept microphone-, line-, and instrument-level sources. Four RCA outputs and a headphone output provide the digital performer and laptop DJ with convenient connectivity.

Direct monitoring is available to avoid latency during recording and signal halos surrounding the gain knobs provide visual feedback of proper input levels. MIDI I/O with activity indicators allows for connecting synthesizer or other MIDI related modules. A comprehensive selection of cross-platform software is included.

The Focusrite Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-In Suite (AAX, Audio Units, VST) delivers accurately modeled plug-ins based on the classic Focusrite Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor hardware. The plug-ins allow for conveniently exploring the sound of the hardware originals from within Pro Tools (10 and above), along with other audio software. The software is a free download for new and current owners of the Scarlett 2i4.

In addition to the Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-in Suite, the interface includes the Softube Time and Tone Pack. Modeled after the Drawmer 1973 FET Stereo compressor hardware, the Drawmer S73 Intelligent Master Processor is a plug-in that aids in balancing and shaping a mix. TSAR-1R Reverb adds space, depth, and width to a sound. Change settings with a single slider, from realistic three-dimensional rooms to dramatic and dreamlike halls. Tube Delay is an echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modeled-tube stages - delivering everything from realistic room echoes, to rockabilly-style slap back, to dub reggae echo. Saturation Knob is a modeled output distortion unit that adds grit and warmth – use it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy a drum loop.
