Guitarist and Scarlett 2i2

Scarlett for Singer-Songwriters

Ask anybody: recording and listening back to your performances is the best way to improve. Even if you don’t let anybody else hear your recordings, you’ll immediately notice what you do well and what you could do better. You can take Scarlett 2i2 anywhere, connect by USB, plug your mics and guitars straight in, and start recording straight away.

We specifically designed this guitar input to handle the hottest pickups without clipping, distorting or changing your sound at all. The gain halo also glows a reassuring shade of green to let you know it's all going well.

Effects in real-time

Play with amp simulators that feel bright and responsive, and record better vocals by putting comfort reverb in your headphones. Scarlett's round-trip latency is lower than any other USB interface, so you can use your effects and plug-ins in real time.
