Focusrite has added the Scarlett 2i4 to line of USB 2.0 bus-powered interfaces.

Scarlett 2i4 USB 2.0 interfaceFor use with both Mac and PC, Scarlett 2i4 features a pair of Focusrite mic preamplifiers with mic, line and high-impedance instrument inputs. It’s converters provide resolution up to 96kHz at 24-bits, delivering a real-world dynamic range in excess of 105dB on record and playback.

Scarlett 2i4 shares several features with Focusrite’s 2i2 model, with the addition of two more outputs and enhanced zero-latency monitoring, making it possible to create separate monitor and artist mixes, or to cue DJ mixes while sending the main mix to a house mixer. Inputs include a switched 10dB pad, enabling the interface to handle virtually any input level.

Scarlett 2i4 has a front-panel headphone socket and universal connectors for XLR and jack inputs, and ‘halo’ indicators around the input controls, which show green when the level is good and red if exceeded. Monitoring controls feature a single large knob for monitor level plus a blend control mixing the input signal with the DAW output – with the ability to monitor either pair of outputs. The input monitor can be switched to mono, for example to hear an instrument or vocal in the centre of the monitor mix. Scarlett 2i4 is entirely USB bus-powered, so does not require a power supply even when using phantom power (accessed with an illuminated button), allowing the unit to be run from a laptop in the field. The interface also includes Midi in and out.
