The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is another fantastic two-channel interface.
It boasts two Focusrite preamps with its added “Air” functionality. So you can get a few different types of sounds out of the same preamps.
This is really helpful for finding the right vocal and guitar tone.
The 2i2’s inputs accept an XLR or ¼” cable as well.
This interface has two stereo outputs for a pair of monitors, as well as a headphone output.
This interface packs fantastic sound quality in a sleek and portable package. If you’re looking for great, versatile preamps on a budget or need a portable interface, this is a great option.
