Focusrite Scarlette 2i2 (3rd Gen)
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.

The most popular audio interface for artists across all genres, the third-generation Scarlett 2i2 provides two mic/line/instrument inputs allowing simultaneous recording and playback of up to two channels with independently controllable headphone and monitor outputs.
The 2i2 features two upgraded third-generation Scarlett mic preamps: with an optional Air setting to reproduce the Air effect of Focusrite’s original ISA mic preamp, giving your vocal and acoustic recordings a brighter and more open sound.
Equipped with high-performance 24-bit/192kHz AD-DA converters, Scarlett guarantees the same professional sound quality throughout the third-generation range.
The high impedance, high-headroom instrument inputs allow you to record guitar or bass without any clipping or unwanted distortion, while Gain Halo metering makes it easy for you to set the input level.

It comes with all the software tools you need to get started, including two comprehensive digital audio workstations: Ableton® Live Lite™ and Pro Tools® First Focusrite Creative Pack.

Studiospares S1005 Condenser Microphone

- 1” Gold sputtered Capsule reacts to the slightest nuance of sound
- Capsule artificially aged to maintain rigid specification
- Frequency response extends down to 20Hz, well below audibility
- Flat response from 20Hz - 20kHz with a slight presence rise at 12kHz
- Presence rise at 12kHz provides greater clarity and cuts through the mix
- Mesh Pop Blast filter made of cooper for ultimate screening against Interference
- J.FET Pre amp front end for the lowest possible noise platform
- J.FETs high impedance circuitry does not modify or change sounds captured by the capsule
- Cardioid Response held within very tight limits to exclude unwanted side and rear sounds
- The transformer output is more expensive but guarantees no interference on long cables
- Complete with an Elastic Suspension the ultimate answer isolates against floor borne noise
- Included Foam windshield which suppresses wind noise
- 48 volt Phantom Powering.
This series has been developed and refined for over two decades and represents the ultimate in large diaphragm microphone design and stands favourable comparison with products costing five times the price.
We recommend that customers try this microphone if they are looking for an inexpensive alternative to the more renowned brands. It provides an excellent quality of sound at an affordable price. You will probably look no further.
Studiospares M2000 MK2 Studio Headphones
The M2000 MK2 is our new professional mastering headphone featuring a fully open-backed design. This design removes the lack of mid-range clarity inherent in closed designs. Performers and mastering engineers generally prefer the open back varieties as the sound is far more accurate and removes the muddled and often “honky” sound. The frequency response is inherently flat and still going strong at frequencies well beyond the audio range.
This model is the culmination of years of development and stands favourable comparison with big brand products costing four times more.
- Breathable protein leather ear pads designed for long-term comfort
- Solid metal headband
- Detachable cable with screw-tight plugs
- 42mm neodymium driver units
- Open-back design for highly accurate sound
- Frequency response 10Hz to 26kHz
- Impedance 64 ohms
- Designed for professional mixing and mastering
Studiospares Pro Mic Stand and Telescopic Boom
Manufactured to a standard, not a price. A solid no compromise product with a Diecast metal base and Tommy Bar for easy boom adjustment. The height adjusting sleeve clamp is nylon, not plastic. The precision engineering lavished on this product plus the availability of all components adds up to make this stand the most popular in the UK.
Matte Black Powder coated for a smart and durable finish. Screws do not gouge marks in the metalwork with long legs which guarantee stability. The boom arm can be set to any length and angle and uses a Tommy Bar for easier adjustment. (Plastic Knobs break under pressure). Materials are pre-processed to stop rust. Boom includes a cable clip to stop loose cables pulling the microphone.
Why will it outlast competitive products?
- For a start, the raw material steel passes through a phosphorisation process involving immersion in a chemical bath to remove oil and grease contaminates and any rust often found unseen inside tubing.
- The surface is then ROHS compliant powder coated and baked in an oven at a high temperature to provide the most durable surface possible. A more expensive process than paint spraying.
- Component parts are simply better. The Diecast metal base is not plastic which breaks easily when left overnight in a cold van,
- The height adjusting sleeve is nylon, not plastic because it is stronger
- Leg hinges are metal, not plastic
- Manufacturing tolerances are low through Computer-Aided Design (CAD)
- ROHS Compliant with EU Hazardous Substance requirements.
- Spares held in stock in Luton
