The Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 2nd Gen USB is ideal for producers, singer-songwriters, and guitarists. Use the interface's 2 combined XLR input channels at the front to record vocals or instruments. You can also send audio signals from the interface to effects or instruments. The Focusrite preamps can easily handle high input signals. This means your recorded sound won't be too loud or distorted. Via the MIDI connection, you can send MIDI signals to your synthesizer or drum computer. That way, you can send drum rhythms and melodies you wrote in your DAW to your musical instruments. The interface is powered via USB, so you won't have to connect the interface to a socket.
