    A great option for beginners and professional audio engineers

    One of my favorite parts about Focusrite gear is that they work out of the box without a problem. Even the most technologically deficient user can started with this simple interface. The knobs are solid, the channels are clean, and the little details (the knobs that light up red when the signal clips) make it easy to use. For the pros, it offers a simple way to make stereo recordings without the hassle of an external power plug.

    Doesn't make sense anymore

    At the time of its release, this may have been the best budget 2-input interface. But there are now a slew of competitors from Presonus, SSL, MOTU, NI etc. If you're considering this for the software, a Presonus or NI Komplete interface will get you way more. My advice-- just get an MOTU M2 for 20 dollars more and enjoy a much improved headphone amp and better latency.

    Great Starter Interface

    This was the first interface I bought for my home studio, and I used it for years. My husband is using it now. It's affordable and does the job. I wish the gain knobs were easier to see as far as levels. However, as your equipment grows, you'll eventually want to graduate to a more pro level interface.

    Great product, Disappointing service...

    Started my musical journey with the Scarlett, and it definitely was a step in the right direction. I use a lot of cpu-heavy VST plugins and the playback has been fairly good for an entry-level interface. The unit worked well while it did but I wasn't happy with Focusrite's service when I ran into a power supply issue within the 1st year. Product was under warranty but Focusrite still wanted me to pay about $80 tech fee + $30 shipping to get it repaired (which was ridiculous considering I could get a new one for an extra $40). Maybe I got unlucky with a faulty unit but I'd still recommend the product for entry-level musicians dabbling with music production.

    Scarlett 2i2- Reliable and Easy to Use

    This little guy was my first interface and I have zero regrets. Both inputs are 1/4" or XLR friendly and you've got everything you need right in front of you in a nice, clean, confined little package. It's also travel friendly and seems (so far) indestructible. I love it and totally recommend it to someone who's looking for a trustworthy but affordable interface!
