Plug Straight In
Use the front panel high quality XLR/jack combination inputs to connect line and instrument level signals as well as microphones – perfect for recording a synth or stage piano, or at the flick of a switch, an electric or acoustic guitar.
Check Your Levels At A Glance
Unique “halo” indicators let you know that you’ve got a good signal level for recording. Red means that your signal is clipping, and that you should reduce the gain. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the level returns to a healthy level, at which point it will turn green.
Polish Your Mix
All Scarlett audio interfaces include Ableton Live Lite recording software, plus two powerful software plug-ins: Red Plug-in Suite and Scarlett Plug-in Suite.
Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-In Suite
The Red Plug-in Suite accurately models our classic Red 2 equaliser and Red 3 compressor, to bring the sound of the famous original hardware to your music software.
Scarlett Plug-In Suite
Scarlett Suite is a professional plug-in suite that provides a definitive suite of compression, gating, EQ and reverb, for tracking and mixing your music.
High Quality Mic Preamps
Scarlett 2i4 features two high quality award-winning Focusrite mic pres. With more than 25 years of experience in designing analogue equipment, Focusrite produce the best mic preamps in the industry. The preamps found in the Scarlett 2i4 are no exception to this, and share the same design as those found in our flagship interfaces: Saffire PRO 40 and Liquid Saffire 56.

Unique LED Gain Halos
The gain halos which surround the gain knob for each input provides an easy way to know that the signal you’re recording is the right level. It will show green when the signal is at a good level (above -24dBFS). If it turns to red, you know that the signal is too loud and is therefore clipping – if this happens, simply reduce the gain until the halo returns to green.
Direct Monitor Function
Flick the direct monitor switch on the front panel of your 2i4 and you will hear what you're recording through your speakers or headphones, without the signal having to go through your computer. This avoids the possibility of latency, which can be distracting when recording.
