The Focusrite Sound: Now On iPad Pro

Official support of 3rd Gen Scarlett Solo & Scarlett 2i2 extended to USB-C iPad Pro

With official support for 3rd Generation Scarlett Solo and Scarlett 2i2 interfaces on USB-C iPad Pros, the world of boundless recording awaits. Now you really can record anywhere: wherever you’d take an iPad Pro, Scarlett Solo and Scarlett 2i2 can follow.

Setup and operation is simple: just plug in, fire up your favourite music-making app, and enjoy the Focusrite sound wherever you go. Scarlett Solo and Scarlett 2i2 devices have been tested with several iOS music applications running on USB-C iPad Pros, including Garageband, Cubasis 2, Auria Pro, Ampify Launchpad, Ampify Groovebox and Ampify Blocs Wave, as well as FL Studio. In use with these apps, both interfaces passed a range of tests.

iPad Pro Support

Scarlett Solo and Scarlett 2i2 can be used with USB-C iPad Pro devices in fully mobile, bus-powered mode over several hours. For permanent situations, such as home studio setups, we recommend powered operation using an appropriate USB-C hub.
