User manual for the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 - Portable USB Audio SCARLETT 2I2 USB
The user manual for the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 - Portable USB Audio SCARLETT 2I2 USB provides
necessary instructions for the proper use of the product Pro Audio - Computer Audio - Audio Interfaces & Systems.
The Scarlett 2i2 from Focusrite is a 2 input, 2 output portable USB recording interface featuring two Focusrite preamps, housed in an anodized-aluminum unibody chassis that is solid enough to take on the road. The preamps offer transparent, low-noise, and low-distortion performance with sufficient available headroom for using moving-coil, condenser, or ribbon microphones. Phantom power is switchable.
The front-panel Neutrik combo connectors can used to connect both line and instrument level signals as well as microphones. This makes it perfect for recording the output of a synthesizer or stage piano, while a flick of a switch caters for the output of an electric or acoustic guitar. Halo signal indicators help with maintaining correct levels. Red indicates a clipping signal, and with reduced gain the lights will momentarily turn amber before returning to green.
A large monitor dial provides control over the output level being sent to monitor speakers, while a high-quality amplifier provides a clean yet loud signal to headphones. A direct monitor switch routes audio directly from the inputs to both the headphone and speaker outputs, allowing for zero-latency monitoring. The included Scarlett Plug-In suite provides EQ, compression, gate, and reverb processing, and is cross-platform compatible with all major DAWs.
The Focusrite Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-In Suite (AAX, Audio Units, VST) delivers accurately modeled plug-ins based on the classic Focusrite Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor hardware. The plug-ins allow for conveniently exploring the sound of the hardware originals from within Pro Tools (10 and above), along with other audio software. The software is a free download for new and current owners of the Scarlett 2i2.
In addition to the Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-in Suite, the interface includes the Softube Time and Tone Pack. TSAR-1R Reverb adds space, depth, and width to a sound. Change settings with a single slider, from realistic three-dimensional rooms to dramatic and dreamlike halls. Tube Delay is an echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modeled tube stages - delivering everything from realistic room echoes, to rockabilly style slap back, to dub reggae echo. Saturation Knob is a modeled output distortion unit that adds grit and warmth - use it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy a drum loop.
