Product Overview ***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.

Since this summer, we’ve worked with some of the finest software companies to bring customers fantastic, exclusive plug-in offers every month. But for those who have only just joined the Focusrite family, December's offer is an “in case you missed it” where we will be reactivating all offers from August onward's.

Customers will have free access to full versions of:
Positive Grid BIAS FX LE guitar effects processor, exclusive for Focusrite customers, Eventide 2016 Stereo Room Plug-in worth $199.00, Sound Radix SurferEQ 2 Boogie plug-in, developed exclusively for Focusrite customers, iZotope DDLY Dynamic Delay Plug-in worth $49.00


Versatile and Powerful
The 2nd generation Scarlett 2i4 is Focusrite's most versatile USB powered audio interface. Ideally suited for applications where you need a cue mix for recording or performing, the 2i4 is compact yet flexible. With two renowned, natural sounding Scarlett Mic Pres, MIDI I/O and four analogue outputs the 2i4 would fit right into the studio of any music producer. Record multiple instruments and vocals simultaneously in class-leading sound quality with the natural-sounding Scarlett Mic Pres. Focusrite have improved the samplerate to 192khz/24bit and provide super-low latency* so you can be confident recording your performance while using effects plug-ins in real time. With new sleek red metal casing and new metal gain dials the new 2i4 is rugged enough to be taken anywhere safely. Focusrite have provided analogue protection circuitry across the inputs and outputs to safeguard your audio interface from unwanted power surges.

The Connectivity You Need
With the new Scarlett 2i4 your recordings will sound exactly how you want them. Two combination inputs with natural-sounding Scarlett Mic Pres, line level inputs and newly-designed instrument inputs let you record anything you want. 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 your studio monitors, or the four RCA outputs to connect to a DJ mixer or home speaker system.
