scarlett 2i2

Scarlett 2i2 no longer able to use 2 mics on mac

I have a problem that I have had ever since Mac updated to Mojave. No one at Scarlett knows what the issue is so I am hoping someone here can help. I dont use any software. I have the Scarlett plugged directly into the mac by USB and I have a mic in position 1 and 1 in position 2.

The mic in #1 works fine meaning I have sound when I do my Podcast. The mic is #2 does not work, meaning there is no sound, but I do see the lights on the Scarlett light to indicate its working. I tested this issue by switching the cables/mics from position 1 and 2.

At2035+ Scarlett 2i2 combination not working! help!

Hi ! I am newbie to recording equipments. I just bought At2035 and scarlett 2i2, and I am not able to get them working.
I tried scarlett on Dynamic mic, and worked like a charm. But when I tried AT2035, i cant see any led signals. its not even lighting up as green.

1. I am supplying phantom power.
2. I am using XLR to XLR cable (not 1/4 one).

Thinking that mic could be defective, I sent it back for replacement. so they checked the mic and told me that mic is working fine.
I have also tried Powered Usb hub, no sucess.

Midi to Scarlett 2i2

Hi, can anyone tell me if its possible to connect my midi piano through the scarlett 2i2 using a converter 5 pin to 3 pin cable? Would it read the right kind of signal?
I need to record piano onto a track but have so much latency through the midi usb connection into the computer, that the piano part is constantly playing almost half a second behind the beat. I am using cubase.
Much appreciated, from Emily in London

Scarlett 2i2 & Windows 8 problems.

I am having problems getting the dreaded Windows 8 to recognise my Scarlett 2i2. All the software and up to date drivers all load in successfully, I've tried all the 2 USB ports supplied in my ASUS 501 x laptop.
ive tried disabling Realtek sound that comes with Windows 8.
Should I remove Realtek ?
It has worked once with Cubase VST ver 5 but when I turned off the computer I lost it again.
the laptop will not recognise my Scarlett 2i2 software, so lets go from there,
any help would be great, I've got nowhere else to go, come on guys help me out please .

scarlett 2i2 vs rolland quadcapture

I just bought the scarlett 2i2 and plugged it in for the first time last night. Im not sure how i feel about it so far but i am still trying to figure out if the quad capture is worth the extra money.

Windows 7 (64bit)
core2quad @ 2.4ghz
Sonar x1

I am replacing my PCI audio card, an Echo MiaMIDI (great card when it worked but drivers had constant conflicts)

tips for reducing USB 2.0 latency? (Windows 7, sonar, scarlett 2i2)

Windows 7 64-bit
Intel core2quad@2.4ghz
4gb ram
Cakewalk Sonar x1 (32bit install)
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, USB 2.0

Sonar is reporting latency of between 10-16 ms (round trip i think). around 10 if i reduce the buffer to as low as it goes and it was a bit over 16 to start with.
I read about people getting their latency down to as low as 1.5ms and easily around 3ms.

I have also read that you can tweak your PC and/or OS to aid latency issues, but i have no idea what to do for this.
