Feefo reviews:

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is the most compact unit in the Scarlett range, but still features the exceptional audio quality that Focusrite are famed for. The unit features two combi inputs capable of handling mic/line and instrument levels with phantom power for condenser mics along with a pair of balanced TRS jacks for connection to monitors etc. The unit is truly portable being USB powered and the striking red anodised aluminium case is rugged enough for touring.

    The Scarlett 2i2 features two of Focusrite's award winning mic preamplifiers to provide an exceptionally clean signal path for microphones, Hi impedance instruments such as guitars and line level sources. Phantom power is available for condenser mics as well. High quality digital converters guarantee pristine audio quality with sample rates up to 24 bit 96 kHz.

    The Scarlett 2i2 features a unique monitoring system on the inputs. Each Gain control is encircled with a halo-style LED which glows green when a signal is present and red if the signal clips providing an easy visual guide to levels.

    The Scarlett 2i2 has a pair of quarter-inch TRS jack outputs for feeding powered studio monitors or an external audio device, such as a mixer. A large knob provides accurate control of the output level and direct monitoring allows for zero-latency tracking. There's also a quarter-inch headphones output with dedicated level control. Since the interface is bus powered, an additional power supply is not needed, meaning the interface is truly portable.

    The unit is housed in a beautiful red anodised aluminium unibody case, making the Scarlet 2i2 one of the most visually distinctive interfaces out there. It's also tough enough to take the rigours of stage life, which, coupled with it's compact and lightweight build, make it the 'go-to' portable interface.

    Inside the box you'll find Ableton Live Lite 8, as well as Focusrite's Red plug-in suite.

    Softube Time and Tone Pack is a unique plug-in bundle (valued at $198 / £129) which includes three of Softube's world class plug-ins: a reverb, a delay and a distortion. The Softube Time and Tone Pack includes the following three plug-ins:

    Tube Delay
    A tasty echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modelled tube stages. Create anything from realistic room echoes to rockabilly style slapbacks—or take it all the way into dub reggae echo madness.

    Saturation Knob
    Add grit and warmth to any sound source with this modelled output distortion unit. Use it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy your drum loop. Simply turn up the knob to add saturation, and use the three-position switch to alter the distortion character.

    TSAR-1R
    Add space, depth and width to your sound—TSAR-1R is a reverb plug-in with world class sound and extreme ease of use. With a single slider, you can take TSAR-1R from realistic and three-dimensional rooms to dramatic and dreamlike halls.

So far, the 2i2 is doing exactly what I need it to do. The only very minor criticism is the choice of red and green to to denote levels. I find it hard to distinguish them.
