My Scarlett Solo 2nd Gen arrived three days after I ordered it and I've been using it ever since. Excellent product for a fraction of the price of other audio interfaces. Sound quality is great, I don't hear pops or audio dropouts when working in my DAW(Reaper). Overall a great product!
Talha El Jundi
I'm so happy to buy this item, it's one of the best audio interfaces in the world.

Scarlett Solo is definitely small and compact but do not be fooled by its size as it is in level with its higher end brothers! Direct monitoring gives zero latency as promised! Line output on the back to connect to your speakers. Also, it is most suitable for those starting a home studio, or only need two channels input like for vocals and guitar at the same time. Very satisfied with this item!

I purchased the kit for someone else so I can't comment personally, but they tell me it has really added professional quality to their sound recordings.

Mr Jordan Thomas
So far the Scarlette Solo 2nd Gen has been great! It’s got some good features including green/red lights around the gain to tell if it’s too loud, phantom power for mics, and a direct monitor so you can hear what you sound like through speakers. The sound is soooo clear and crisp, it is beautiful. Also, what made this purchase doubly great was all the music software (Ableton Live Lite and assorted plug ins) that come with it! I am really liking that software bundle. I purchased refurbished, so lower price, but still amazing quality so far and I still was able to get all the software that you would get with a new model. Since the product shipped from England, it took a while to get here (maybe a couple of weeks). A few things I’m not as a fan of are: the output to monitors is a direct line with two outputs (right/left) that works with a stereo system but would need an adapter to plug into a sound system; the headphone jack is a quarter inch so I would need to buy an adapter for any of my eighth inch headphones that I currently own; and lastly, it would be amazing if there was a simple mute button for each of the channels since to unplug you have to turn down the monitors completely so as to avoid the loud popping sound that comes with unplugging. This last one is an inconvenience if you are running your sound through the Scarlette, because you have to turn down everything to avoid the popping sound. Overall, a great product that I would recommend.
Kether Saturnius
Solidly built and does exactly what it advertises.

Unless I can make it work on Acid pro it's no use to me.
Elizabeth Dodd

Focusrite Scarlett - Clean, warm and complimentary. I record a lot of acoustic instruments, and needed a new portable interface I could use away from my small home studio. I have wanted to experiment with recording in other acoustic spaces, and so began my search for a small buss powered interface, One that I could just connect to my mac and record. I spent a lot of time on-line researching, and was for a time very tempted to go with another interface that boasted burr brown converters and class A preamps. Many reviewers of that product talked about the the red boxes having a thin and harsh sound. So much for reviews, this Focusrite Solo is clean, full, warm and natural. A visit to the Focusrite site and the great examples they give under "Products>Mic Pre Masters" menu helped me center my thinking and realize, the reviews of the Scarlett were skewed. Now after one week of ownership, and as a result of my experience with the Scarlett Solo during that week, I realize its time to retire my MOTU Traveler. In fact, I am now using the Solo for mixing in my studio until, I have the funds to get another, and larger RED box. In the meantime I will just put up with the limited number of ins and outs for the sake of quality of sound. My final reason for choosing Focusrite comes down to personal experience with other Focusrite products. I have owned a Focusrite ISA one for about five years and this has and continues to be my go-to preamp for anything acoustic, including vocals. Also, my first ever USB interface was the original MBox which featured Focusrite preamps that also sounded great, certainly better than the grainier sound of my then Digi 02 preamps. Maybe I sound like a Focusrite snob, but no, if I want ultra transparency then I turn to Grace, and while the Solo preamp does not have the same level of depth as the Grace 101, it adds no hyped color to the sound, rather, it reflects what it hears, with clarity and without harshness, . One final thought, the Focusrite Red 2 EQ, and Red 3 Compressor plugins included with the interface, make the cost of the Scarlett Solo worth every penny. Focusrite's on-going customer support and their plugin collective program, clearly shows they want to help customers grow. In summary, I like the Focusrite customer facing attitude, and the no fuss quality of their products. As long as they maintain these long lasting and very high standards, I will be a customer.
Adam Tanner
Perfect compact interface, quality with added extras with plug ins! Great value
Mr Otto Albertsen
The product was exactly what I as expecting, nothing more, nothing less. I was over all very pleased. Still messing around with it and hope to continue to discover more about the product. Perfect condition and works right from the get go. No complaints.

Tomasz
scarlett got only one minus, he dont use usb 3.0
Gerry
I am a newbie to the recording process and I have to admit I don't know much about it, but with the Scarlett Solo even I can record tracks with this plug and play interface. It is so easy to use anyone who is interested in recording music should buy this product. Love it
Michael
Exactly as described. Really easy to setup and sound quality is better than the opposition. Qua ity !
Malcolm
Seems great to me. I use it with a new lavalier mic I bought and this pair improved my audio by about 4x. Really pleased, and the Scarlett seems excellent build quality.

With the Scarlett Solo USB audio interface, your recordings will sound just how you want them to. Plug straight in to record your guitar and vocal simultaneously on independent channels so they can be mixed separately. The super-low latency* brings confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. Connect your headphones and home speakers or studio monitors, turn up the volume and totally immerse yourself in sound.

New Generation - Better in every way
The second generation Scarlett range is packed full of upgrades. New super-low latency* brings confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. New metal gain controls and a sleeker red metal chassis underscore its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere. The Scarlett range also now operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz. The input channels have evolved too. The latest Scarlett mic preamp features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned so it can handle seriously hot guitar pick-ups. Finally, Focusrite have provided analogue protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.
