Applies to: Scarlett 4i4 3rd Gen
Scarlett 4i4 3rd Gen requires 900mA of power for complete operation. All USB 3.0 and most USB 2.0 ports* are capable of providing this level of current.
The Scarlett 4i4 3rd Gen audio interface is powered via the USB connection to your Mac or PC – it does not require an external power source to function.
As with all Scarlett 3rd Gen interfaces, the Scarlett 4i4 can be connected to a USB A port (using the supplied USB cable) or a USB C port using a USB C to USB C cable (not supplied). The performance will remain the same regardless of which port you use.
USB type A
USB type C
*If you are not sure whether your computer's USB 2.0 port can supply this level of current, please contact your computer's manufacturer for more information.
