You won't get a better sounding, more reliable recording package. Scarlett 2i2 Studio provides singer-songwriters with an all-in-one solution for a reassuringly easy recording process. Right out of the box you get a Scarlett 2i2 USB audio interface, condenser microphone, 3-metre XLR microphone cable, closed-back headphones, and free software so you can start making music in no time at all.

The most popular audio interface for artists across all genres, the third-generation Scarlett 2i2 provides two mic/line/instrument inputs allowing simultaneous recording and playback of up to two channels with independently controllable headphone and monitor outputs.

The CM25 MkIII condenser microphone enables you to capture studio-quality recordings that are faithful to the original source, while the HP60 MkIII closed-back headphones, with a new improved design, offer high sound quality and long-lasting comfort when recording and mixing.

Simply plug your guitar or bass in to the high-headroom instrument inputs and start recording without any clipping or unwanted distortion and keep an eye on your input level with intuitive Gain Halo metering.

    Anyone can comment on the microphone and headphone in the bundle - are they any good for beginners?

    • +1

      They do the job but you would be better off getting the 2i2 on it's own then picking up a P120 or 220 on sale and a $30-50 headphone. The mic has a bit of noise and likely worth around $80. It shouldn't cost you too much more if you wait for some sale prices on the items.

    • This Bundle may interest you if you want better quality Microphone & Headphones:

      But the including ones are more than enough for a beginner if you don't need to spend the little extra,

    • Beginning what exactly? Music recording, game streaming?

      • The included mic is more than enough for game streaming, I was more referring to a beginner with recording vocals

        • Yeah, I was trying to see what Bfimmortal meant by beginner.

          • @ONEMariachi: Sorry I should be clearer. I meant as a beginner of vocal recording. Cheers

            • @bfimmortal: The P120 isn't too bad. It's fairly well rounded, decent for vocals and decent for instruments in a bedroom environment if you want to go that way (as in acoustic based, or picking up an amp). Though, depending on your goals it is something you will definitely grow out of.
              It entirely depends on what your budget is and long term goals. If you're just looking for moderate bang for buck. That $499 deal is decent enough.

              For a little more you can get something like a SM58 - $157.58, or a Sennheiser e845 - $139/e945 - $225. These are quality vocal mikes for really not that much more. That you would honestly never really need to upgrade for vocals, and work brilliantly if you ever intend to play/sing live on stage too. They are strong and capable of being dropped and will not stop working. Sm58 if your voice is a bit higher, sennys if you're more mid to low range vocals (I've been using a e945 for 15 yeasr now and it hasn't missed a beat. Live or in the studio, a band mate vocalist only has been using the 845 for 6-7 years now and same deal). However worth trying them out at a store and seeing what you like the sound of more. They work real well next to an acoustic guitar or an amp as well.

              Then for headsets. Industry standard is the Sony MDR7506 - $126.87. I use this myself for studio monitoring when singing or recording an instrument. Most high end studios have them. They're great, they're cheap, they last for ages and they're honestly unbeatable until you start hitting the $250-300 mark imo.

              Focusrite 212 - $247.98
              Or if you don't think you'll ever need to plug/record more than 1 mic/instrument at a time, you can even save another $70 and go the Focusrite Solo - $170.05

              So for about $534, you can get an E845 and the Sony's + XLR Cable - $19.99 and a focusrite 2i2.

              • @ONEMariachi: Thank you very much for the detailed advice and experience sharing!

  • Got this one. Looking at reviews the mic is solid for getting into voice recording and the headset is decent which I can use for jamming since its got a long cable. And the interface itself is already ~$250 so its worth it for me to get going with recording. Note that 212 has two inputs that each can be either mic or instrument jacks. I was looking at the Solo but I realize that only has 1 instrument and 1 mic, so can't do 2 mics or 2 guitars like I want.
