I use it with Audacity running on KXstudio (an Ubuntu based distribution dedicated to audio) installed on an old laptop, and the Scarlet just worked. One just needed to select it from the dropdowns. Each input lights up green or red if you overload it allowing one to quickly set the recording level.
I use it with a MXL 990 Condenser Microphone which uses the built in 48v supply, bass guitar and electro-acoustic guitar and the quality is superb, the clever input sockets taking either type of input.
Amazingly it's powered entirely from the USB connection so doesn't need a separate power supply.
Pre-amps are of good quality, to be expected from Focusrite.
The "Gain Ring" is a really intuitive display for telling whether your input level is peaking or not.
Phantom power as expected.
Direct monitor ability is pretty useful for recording certain acoustic instruments that may not be very loud in the DAW.
Feels really well made and sturdy, the small form factor is great.
No Phono out
No Midi In
If you're looking for a sleek audio interface for recording 1 or two inputs at a time, you can't really go wrong with the Scarlett 2i2
(Also there's a whole host of free software included, which is an added bonus)
The headphones seem ideally suited to this interface and for general reference will probably replace my Shures as my work-a-day 'phones.
I have not yet tried the microphone but can't wait to do so.
I'm using Window 10 and had no setup issues. Old drivers uninstalled and this beauty up and running within minutes.
I had no need for the bundled software (or the endless subscriptions!) but if you don't have a DAW then the choice of Ableton or Pro tools as tasters won't disappoint.
To sum up: if you are a Todd Rundgren style 'do it all in the front room on a PC' musician this package will be money well spent.
I use with Logic Pro X and its a pretty flawless setup, I simply plug into my MacBook, then change my input in Logic and I can then record straight to an audio track! Perhaps there's a lot of setup for other uses but for me, it was a 2-minute setup!
Solid build, looks really good,
Handy indicator LED's to know if your signal is peaking or not,
Really low latency,
Great sound quality at an affordable price,
It would be nice to have some analogue inputs on the back but can live without,
USB-C would be nice for the newer MacBook's however for much more money a USB-C model is available,
Also worth noting, the headphone port on the Interface is a 1/4" jack so you may want a 1/4" -> 3.5mm jack adapter to use with regular headphones,
Overall its a solid unit and great value for money!
I am also worried about how stable that makes them. In the span of 5 years, every pair of headphones I have owned has had audio issues and/or sound to go in one of the ears. I would like to hope that doesn't happen again, but this does make me feel nervous.
I exchanged a Behringer U-Phoria for this to get balanced outs to KRK 6s. Way better sound quality improvement than the £37 price difference to my ears. I use it for playback not recording.
The L & R gains have level indicators around circumference of the base of the pots on the unit which flash green indicating input signal level / presence and flash red if overloaded. Nice!
Intuitive to set up and use.
Above all, SQ is superb and breathes much-needed analog life back into asphyxiated digital source files.
