The Most Versatile Bus-Powered Audio Interface
The second generation Scarlett 2i4 is Focusrite's most versatile USB-powered audio interface, ideal for anyone needing a cue mix for performing or recording. It is compact yet flexible, with two natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, super-low latency, MIDI i/o, four analogue outputs and the same class-leading sound quality and digital conversion as the rest of the latest Scarlett range. Take it anywhere, connect by a single USB cable, plug two microphones or instruments straight in, and easily record studio quality audio against a cue mix. Focusrite is the perfect partner for Pro Tools, and to celebrate this Scarlett 2i4 now comes with an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack, as well as Ableton Live Lite. It is also compatible with all other major DAWs, on Mac and PC.

The Ins and Outs You Need
With Scarlett 2i4 your recordings will sound just how you want them. Two combination inputs with natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, line level inputs and newly-designed instrument inputs let you record anything you want. The four analogue outputs and MIDI I/O make the Scarlett 2i4 ideal for the modern music producer using outboard synths or performing live. Use the 1/4 inch balanced jack outputs to connect to professional studio monitors, or the four RCA outputs to connect to a home speaker system or DJ mixer.

New Generation - Better In Every Way
The second generation Scarlett range is packed full of upgrades. New super-low latency will bring confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. New metal gain controls and a sleeker red metal chassis reassure you of its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere. The Scarlett range also now operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz, and the input channels have evolved too. The latest Scarlett mic preamp features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned so it can handle seriously hot pick-ups. Finally, Focusrite have provided analogue protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.

Ready to Record, Anywhere
Compact and portable enough to take anywhere, you won't even need a power supply; Scarlett 2i4 is connected and powered by a single USB cable. It also comes with the software and effects you need to start recording; an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack, Ableton Live Lite, the Softube Time and Tone Bundle, Focusrite's Red Plug-In Suite, 2GB of Loopmasters samples and more.

With such variety, you'll want to find exactly the right plug-ins for you, and use them in real time, thanks to Scarlett 2nd gen's super-low latency environment.

It really does the job. I've had mine for about a year now. I just wish it had a couple of usb ports like its Audiohub cousin. Otherwise great box. Heavy as hell.

Unlike the 2i2, the 2i4 has PAD buttons. These little miracle buttons reduce your instrument input so you don't end up with clipping. A boon if you play a lot of high gain, palm muted music. The only solution with the 2i2 is a DI box, which, by the time you buy that and the cables, you might as well have spent the extra money on the 2i4 (and have less hardware lying around to deal with). As with the rest of their products, this interface works great. Never run into an issue with it.
