First impressions when it comes out the box is that it is staggeringly pretty. One of the best looking bits of gear on my desk. The build quality is superb too.

Installation was very straight forward and pain free compared to the old interface I had. Downloaded the drivers, plugged it in and it worked. I use Cubase 7 and everything synced up perfectly without any hassle whatsoever. Latency for me is about 30ms and max, 5ms at minimum so there's no problems there. I noticed a substantial increase in audio quality compared to the onboard laptop drivers i had been using previously. It also comes with a good few additional software and plugins.

The interface is very intuitive and well designed. The 2i4 provides phantom power so it's just a case of plug and play. The gain knobs flash green when the audio signal is at a suitable level which I have found to be extremely helpful.

All in all this gets 5 stars because I simply can't find anything wrong with it. It just works.
Only consideration is that, if you plan to use headphones to listen back to the audio, bear in mind the headphone jack on the interface is 1/4 inch, not 3.5mm so you will need an adapter. but you can get them for 2 quid so it's scarcely an issue and not a fault on the 2i4's part.

I recommend this product for any home/bedroom producer just starting out but truth be told I see this lasting me for quite a while so even more experienced folk could consider this a viable option.

I spent a lot of time researching audio interfaces to start a home recording studio. previously owned a 16 track MRS and thought it was time to upgrade. I was very happy a finally selected the Focusrite 2I4. It really is an awesome piece of kit for what its worth. I would recommend spending the extra cash and get the 2I4 rather than the 2I2. The 2I4 comes with the MIDI input output and although I use the focus rite for more live recordings i.e. guitar and vocals, it is very using having a MIDI keyboard for shortcuts and adding other instruments to tracks.
I use Logic pro X as my DAW and the 2I4 is very simple to set up and use with it. I have also used Ableton live in the past and it is also easy to set up.
The 2I4 comes with a 48V phantom power capability so recording vocals (using a half decent condenser mic- I use the RODE NT1-A please see my other review) is very easy and produces a very impressive, high quality professional sounding recording.
Latency (i.e. the lag you get whilst listening back to the input signal through our DAW) is essentially non- existent. I really appreciated this especially when recording over other tracks/ live.
Overall a very impressive audio interface and arguably the best available in its price range. If you're looking to start up your own recording studio/record professionally or as a hobby, the sound quality and simplicity of the 2I4 makes it, in my opinion, the best out there.

Works really well, this is the second audio interface I have owned, the first being an M-Audio which everyone raves about for some reason but it turned out to be a piece of c**p. So I decided to try a Focusrite instead and I'm not disappointed at all.

It's good and solid, has weight to it, it's well-built with quality knobs and dials, gives a great sound after a bit of tweaking and latency is pretty much non-existent straight away with no need for fiddling about with the settings.

Also came with a big Loopmasters folder full of samples, I don't usually use samples but I found a few in there I've put to good use, also comes with a couple of plugins for effects which is a nice bonus and also comes with Ableton Lite, and though I had no need for it as I already use Ableton Live it was reassuring to know I was getting an Audio Interface that would work well with Ableton.

It was definitely worth the money to get this, I allow myself one extravagant purchase per month (per payday) and I'm absolutely chuffed to bits with this one :)

Whenever I need a new piece of audio equipment Focusrite are gonna be my first port of call from now on.

Would give 10 stars if I could.

I wanted something reliable and great sounding for bedroom demo's, so the focusrite name drew me in. Really simple to use, got pads, easy to use phantom power, and the lighting up level meters around the knobs make it really easy to monitor, especially when recording yourself. I've had some bad run-ins with interfaces in the past but I'm definitely glad i got this one. Works exactly as it should, reliable and simple. Cannot fault.

I've owned a 2i4 for over a year and haven't had anything to put it up against until now so now I think a review is worth writing for those looking for a solid usb interface for music recording.

The 2i4 is supposed to be a ultra low latency interface. For those looking to achieve breakneck guitar rhythm patterns you will be fine when using an amp simulator via the units monitor input. However, if you are going direct in using plugins, this is where you will struggle with a DAW like Cubase.

I can't speak for mac users but on a Windows 7 machine with an intel i7 and 8gb ram the 2i4 struggles in 64bit on Cubase 8. Generally the Cpu usage in Cubase will be running at about 25% when idle with it running at aroung 75% with a bunch of guitar plugins on. After building up a project I was running into annoying dropout issues regularly. The 2i4 does fair better on Reaper however. Overall I found the 2i4 to run better in 32bit mode and its possible that this is down to an issue with the focusrite drivers that are doenloaded from their website.

The 2i4 comes with a set of free plugins that I found unusable for what I needed although the reverb plugin is quite handy.

I was initially impressed with the build as it is a beautiful looking unit however after 6 months the monitor dial began to crackle when it was turned. If I had owned it for 10+ years I would be forgiving, but for one of the units most useful features this was very disappointing.

The 2i4 doesnt have any obvious control panel when working in your computer but it can be found when typing focusrite into he command prompt where a direct latency control can be found. I normally pin this the to taskbar so it doesn't get lost.

Although this is low latency it comes at a cost.
