Does my bus powered Scarlett (Solo, 2i2, 2i4, 4i4) require Scarlett MixControl or Focusrite Control?

1st & 2nd Gen: Scarlett Solo | Scarlett 2i2 | Scarlett 2i4

  • No, these devices are not compatible with Scarlett MixControl or Focusrite Control. All of the controls for these devices are hardware based instead (i.e accessible from the front panel of each device).
  • To change buffer size and sample rate go to the audio preferences in your DAW (Mac) or open the ASIO Control Panel application on your Windows PC.

3rd Gen: Scarlett Solo | Scarlett 2i2 | Scarlett 4i4

  • Yes, Focusrite Control is required for these devices. Focusrite Control can be downloaded from your Focusrite account, or from the main downloads page (be sure to select the correct product from the drop-down list i.e Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen, Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen, etc).
