Plug straight in
The front panel has two combo XLR inputs to connect microphones, guitars and line level signals such as keyboards, safe in the knowledge that your sound is in the best possible hands.

Checking your levels
Scarlett’s unique “signal halos” let you know that you’ve got the right audio level for recording. Green is good, while red means that your audio is too loud and you need to lower the gain control.

Focusrite – Sound is everything
Focusrite was founded by Rupert Neve in 1985 to create the highest quality input channels for Sir George Martin’s AIR Studios. Those classic, sought-after designs have informed all Focusrite mic preamps created over the past 30 years. The mic pres included in Scarlett interfaces were designed specifically for the purpose, combining the best of our heritage design experience with the latest components and technologies. The mic pres are backed up with precision digital conversion based itself on over twenty years of converter design know-how. The result: interfaces that offer the most transparent, pristine path in and out of your computer with maximum conversion quality. It’s quality you’ll appreciate, whether you’re just starting out or have been in the business for years.
