Focusrite 2i2 Mk2 Scarlett Pro Audio USB Interface
Special Offer Introducing The Plug-In Collective
Focusrite’s Plug-In Collective brings monthly plug-in deals to registered and new customers.
The advent of Focusrite’s new, ultra-low latency interfaces opens up a world of new possibilities for recording and overdubbing, using multiple DAW plug-ins in real time rather than needing special cue mixes and outboard DSP.
There’s no shortage of great plug-ins today, with new and exciting instruments and effects coming out all the time – but which to choose?
At Focusrite, we believe in freedom – the freedom to choose the plug-ins that get musicians, producers and engineers their signature sound, exactly the way they want it. To help in the quest, Focusrite is working with some of the most innovative and prestigious plug-in companies around to provide exclusive offers, tutorial content and more.
Free throughout February: Syntorus double path analogue chorus from D16 Group Audio Software
Part of the family of the Silver Line of D16 plug-ins, Syntorus double path analogue chorus has a rich analogue chorus similar to the effect found on classic synthesisers like the Solina, Synthex or Juno. To create a chorus effect, an audio signal is mixed with one or more delayed, pitch-modulated copies of itself. Syntorus will add richness to synthetic basses and leads, acoustic instruments or anything else it's used on. Whether you're using keys or guitars, you'll be impressed by the unique sound of Syntorus.

Best Selling Audio Interface In The World
The original Scarlett 2i2 is the world's best selling USB audio interface. Focussed on three things - unsurpassed sound quality, fast latency speeds and ease of use, the 2nd generation continues to improve in all of these areas. Featuring two natural sounding Scarlett Mic Pres and the same outstanding sound quality and digital conversion as the rest of the Scarlett range, the 2i2 is the perfect choice for small recording applications. With an improved sample rate of upto 192khz at 24bit and super-low latency of 2.74ms*, Focusrite have improved on a true great.

With a compact form factor, sleeker red rugged metal case and new metal gain dials the 2i2 is ready to be taken anywhere.

The improved gain structure on the inputs provides you the ability to set your levels accurately anywhere on the dial while the redesign of the inputs themselves allows you to record even seriously hot guitar pick-ups. Powered by a single USB cable you don't have to worry about a power supply and can concentrate on getting the sound exactly how you want. We also have a headphone output with dedicated gain control and two ¼ inch balanced jack outputs let you connect your 2i2 to professional studio monitors allowing you to sit back, turn up the volume and immerse yourself in the sound.
