Sweetwater's Mitch Gallagher presents two compact audio interfaces from Focusrite. The Focusrite Scarlett series of audio interfaces offer solutions for everyone from solo singer/songwriters to professional studios. Compact, portable interfaces with only a channel or two — like the Focusrite Scarlett Solo and Scarlett 2i2 — are ideal for solo musicians to write and record their music.
Focusrite Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen USB Audio Interface
It's so easy to make music with Focusrite's Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen USB audio interface! Ideal for the singer-songwriter, the 3rd generation Scarlett Solo sports the legendary Focusrite preamp as well as a crystal-clear DI for your guitar, bass, or keys. Focusrite's unique gain halos make it easy to control your levels, while the headphone jack, Direct Monitor switch, and large volume dial make monitoring a breeze. For this third-generation Scarlett Solo, Focusrite has not only raised the bar with vanishingly low latency, 192kHz sample rates, optimized preamp gain structure, and an instrument input that handles scorching hot pickups; they also included the acclaimed Air circuit that models their legendary ISA console transformer to give your voice and instrument recordings a brighter, more open sound. The Scarlett Solo G3 delivers the pro-quality sound you need — at a price you'll love. Plug in, fire up the bundled software, and you're ready to rock.
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen USB Audio Interface
The third-generation Scarlett 2i2 advances the state-of-the-art in USB audio interfaces with two upgraded Scarlett mic preamps, high-performance 24-bit/192kHz AD/DA converters, optimized preamp gain structure, vanishingly low latency, and instrument inputs that handle scorching hot pickups. The mic preamps on the 2i2 G3 now feature Focusrite’s acclaimed Air mode that provides the coveted Air effect modeled on the company's legendary ISA console transformers to give your voice and instrument recordings a brighter, more open sound. Ideal for the small project studio or mobile rig, the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 G3 runs on USB bus power and sports two mic/line/instrument inputs allowing simultaneous recording and playback of up to two channels with independently controllable headphone and monitor outputs. Fire up the bundled software, and you're ready to rock.
