I have no previous experience in audio recording, I bougth this product because is the most recomended device in the media. The first experience I have is awesome and Focusrite has a lot of tutorials. The only con it has is the compatibility with Windows 10 because of the software (protools first) and some drivers. Some things you have to install in Win8 compatibility mode. Hope this get better.

Overall it's a very nice product, but mine has a little defect, it's making a scratchy sound in the right channel when I turn up the volume

I give it 5. Fast, few issues. Sounds awesome. I have the first generation as well.

I'm absolutely in love with this interface. It gives you a pure uncolored tone straight into your computer. I'd recommend this over the 2i2 or the solo as the pad and midi functions are invaluable. I play active basses and as such without the pads the sound is far too clipped and unpleasant. However, with the pads you get pleasant full tone without any clipping all without a di box. This interface also serves as a midi solution as you can send and receive midi input or output straight from the computer or your keyboard. I honestly say this interface is the heart of my studio. I can't record without it.

This score will rise as the drivers mature. I've had some issues with stability and also the buffer length resetting on each restart, which have been confirmed as known issues by tech support. Focusrite says they're working on it and I trust that. However, I can't rate this product higher until those fixes happen. That said, I've owned several Scarlett interfaces and the overall quality isn't an issue. Just realize that early adopters always risk experiencing some problems.
Hi Nathan, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. As you suggest, we're continually working to improve the performance of our drivers, fix and issues and implement new features. I'm sorry to hear about the problems you'd experienced, if you do continue to have problems, please don't hesitate to contact us. Best regards, Eddie Judd || Focusrite Technical Support

Scarlett 2i4 (2nd Gen) is superb. I'm getting 2.6ms roundtrip latency on a W10 machine at 192k/16smpls. If you use a cpu-light host like Reaper you can do everything.

Amazingly superior audio I/O hardware at any price! Lowest latency, pristine mic-pre's, USB connectivity, and of course the included Focusrite Plug-In Package make this a great choice for the entry/home studio level musician on the go. I've been using different DAWs with my 2i4, including Protools 12, Cubase and Ableton for Windows, and have created great sounding tracks.

This is my first audio interface as I generally mix using very high end headphones (use Pro Tools 12 and an iMac-just for reference) but wanting to experiment with mics home studio monitors I sought out looking for an audio interface- the Scarlett 2i4 has been excellent- extremely easy to setup and use-

Fantastic choice. I use this for all my recording, and when I upgrade, I'm still going to stick to focusrite... The sound and build is fantastic.

New Generation - Better in every way
The second generation Scarlett range is packed full of upgrades. New super-low latency* will bring 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 reassure you of its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere. The Scarlett range also now operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz, and 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 pick-ups. Finally, Focusrite have provided analogue protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.
