Scarlett has gone platinum. Sitting on the desks of a huge global community of musicians, producers and home-recordists, the iconic 2i2 has already helped make more records than any other interface in history. And with the 3rd Generation, you’re going to sound better than ever.Interested in what headphones are compatible with Scarlett?

The 2i2 3rd Gen is a solid advancement to the product line. Generation III helps this brand to remain at the forefront of audio interfaces. I had sold a previous interface and found myself in a pinch where I needed to get something recorded and produced within 48 hours. I found myself with a 2i2 3rd Gen and it was perfect.
Good things you should know:
Contrary to other reviews, you DO NOT need any external drivers. It truly does remain plug-and-play, as they say. External drivers are solely optional, as your specific setup might warrant them. Here was my scenario; plug in USB to laptop, open DAW, set input to 2i2, record. Latency - what latency? That's a thing of the past.
Bad things you should know (that do not reduce the rating whatsoever):
The bundled software (ProTools First, Ableton Live Lite) is a train wreck and will require much more than the 20 minutes they estimate to set yourself up. It requires creating multiple accounts on platforms for downloads and digital licensing (if you're not already set up). The included software largely remains a means to make the product more marketable. Your BEST options remain to buy a monthly subscription to ProTools ($$), buy Reaper ($), or use Audacity (for free).
However, the 3rd gen switches to a USB C connector with lightning, which requires a separate driver. In order to deliver this driver, the interface shows as a USB drive with the installation media. This causes the system not to boot if the device is plugged in. Focusrite also tries to get you to register the device and drivers with their web sites before the USB connection can be made.
The new driver is also dropping connection after extended periods. Look for gen 1 or 2 of this device if you aren't using it for short periods, and unplugging it after you are done.
Not only does this seem to be working perfectly, but the series of tutorials Focusrite has created made it extremely simple for me to get set up, plugged in, and jamming in no time.
I can't speak to this product as a professional musician, but if you're a dummy like me you've certainly come to the right place!
This is the ideal unit for me. You take it out of the box, connect it to your computer via the supplied USB-C cable and it directs you step-by-step from that point on. If there is a decision to make, they include the option to watch a video to explain the choices. I chose the most complicated path and within 2 hours recorded my first track. A lot of that depended on download speed and that I watched every video option presented.
I look forward to using this a lot.
Their support videos are fantastic.
