Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Computer Audio Interface Review

First impressions:

All very Gooood. Well, it’s built by a company which was started by Rupert Neve, so why expect any less than spot-on.

Well built, convenient controls, fits snugly into any home recording/desk environment. The preamps are nice. I play a Warwick, so I know how much character and expression the bass has, so I tend to notice when something detracts from that. This does not detract. Sounds just as sweet through the Interface as it does amped, or un-amped.

Pros:

With this, you can either have 2 guitars simultaneously, or guitar + mic, or guitar + line, or any combination of the two; or even, with a couple of Y-splitter cables, you could record 4 instruments simultaneously. Depending on which DAW you choose to use.

The Direct Monitor facility is (well, ought to be standard on all Interfaces, but a lot of manufacturers don’t bother) absolutely necessary for recording – and it works well, too.

Now, Ableton Live 9 Lite which is the program bundled with this – you download it from Ableton, using a Serial Number provided from Focusrite.

Cons:

I think, better suited to Electronic musicians, than those who simply wish to record their instrument. It’s set up for people who want thousands of pre-recorded drums, synths, effects, beats etc – all good, but not so for me. It records fine, but – and a big but – Ableton has no Tuner function. Also, multi-track recording can be difficult.

Conclusion:

Oh, and, contrary to what some others have said about this and similar interfaces – I had absolutely no problem finding/downloading/installing drivers for this – DirectX or ASIO. All work fine.

Part of the effect of changes in the modern age: For 20x less than the price of an equivalent piece of kit 20 years ago, you and I now have access to equipment with which we can do ourselves justice, at good value, from the convenience of the home/practice room. Obviously, you’d struggle to get away with a full band recording, because there’s only 2
ins/2 outs – but that’s not what this if for.
