Incredible preamps. Colossal dynamic range. Re-engineered Air mode for big studio sound. Auto Gain and Clip Safe. All the software you need.
Ready for the softest vocal or the loudest amp, 2i2 and 4i4 feature the high-detail, ultra-low-noise 4th Gen preamp, with a massive 69dB gain range to capture every part of the performance.
Studio-quality Hi-Z and line inputs.
Use Hi-Z instrument inputs, like you’d find on an amp, and make guitars sound great for DI’s and amp sims. Super-high-quality line inputs capture all the character of your synths and keys.
When you hit the red button, you’re recording with professional-grade, 192kHz, 24-bit converters direct from our flagship RedNet interfaces – as found in countless high-end studios around the world. Build up your songs, layer after layer, and never worry about noise. Squeeze every last drop of detail out of your recordings without sacrificing sound quality.
Auto Gain sets the perfect level.
Just hit the button and play for ten seconds, 2i2 and 4i4 will set the perfect level for whatever you’re recording. Go where the music takes you. Scarlett chooses the ideal gain setting to make the most of its massive dynamic range while giving you tonnes of headroom.
Clip Safe means you’ll never lose a take.
Plug in to 2i2 or 4i4, and while you’re playing, Clip Safe is all ears, checking your levels up to 96,000 times a second – more than the most careful studio engineer. Clip Safe will automatically adjust the gain if you’re at risk of clipping, protecting your audio from distortion. No compression. No limiting. No effect on your sound. Lose yourself in the music, without losing any takes.
