Focusrite has just rolled out their brand new line of Scarlett recording interfaces in five iterations – the Solo, 2i2, 4i4, Solo Studio, and 2i2 Studio.
The new line of Scarlett interfaces offer 120dB dynamic range using converters from the flagship RedNet range, a custom-designed headphone amplifier, redesigned Dynamic Gain Halos with output metering, and a new Easy Start tool. The Scarlett 2i2 and 4i4 also offer remote-controlled preamps with 69dB of gain, Auto Gain, and Clip Safe modes to automatically adjust the gain to prevent clipping.
The Scarlett Solo is ideal for singer-songwriters. The Scarlett Solo offers one mic preamp, one Hi-Z instrument/line input, a brand-new custom designed headphone amp, the re-engineered Air mode with Presence, and an all-new Harmonic Drive. The Solo is available here for $139.99.
The Scarlett 2i2 offers two remote-controlled mic preamps and two Hi-Z instrument/line inputs for guitars, keys and groove boxes. The iconic 2-in/2-out interface delivers professional studio quality in a portable package. With powerful new features like Clip Safe, Auto Gain and Air mode, the 2i2 empowers artists to make release-ready recordings anywhere. The 2i2 is available here for $199.99.
The Scarlett 4i4 provides two remote-controlled mic preamps, switchable line or Hi-Z instrument inputs, two fixed line inputs, and four balanced outputs for the flexibility to record mics, guitars, synths and more. MIDI I/O makes it easy to bring in synths and grooveboxes to sync with recording sessions. The 4i4 brings professional studio quality within reach for home musicians who want to connect more of their gear at once. 4i4 also includes new features like Clip Safe, Auto Gain and the re-engineered Air mode. The 4i4 is available here for $279.99.
