Built from the classic Focusrite ISA 110 ethos, the ISA Two features four impedance settings, including the classic ISA 110 setting, allowing you to blend between a clean transparent signal or bringing out the character of your favourite mic. An 80dB range of low noise gain, means that the ISA Two is able to work under any stressful setting, giving you a stable platform to let your mics shine. There are also rear accessed TRS sockets that let you plug in your outboard gear, whether it is a compressor, EQ or limiter.

Each channel's high-pass filter has a variable cut-off frequency of 16 to 420 Hz selected from the front panel and has an attenuation of 18 dB/Octave - also used in the ISA110 module that was introduced during the 80's. The high pass filter, phase-invert, insert point and phantom power can all be switched in and out per channel with the front panel controls.
Eight-segment LED arrays offer clear metering of both signals, whilst a calibration knob on the rear panel enables lining up of analogue signal levels to stop clipping and optimize your signal path for any DAW or recording system.
Superb sound spanning four different decades
Focusrite's microphone preamplifiers go back to the original Focusrite ISA 110 modules, when Rupert Neve was given authority by George Martin in 1985 to build a channel strip for his Neve console. Focusrite mic pres combine the very best solid-state electronics with transformer coupling and have played a key part in the recording of hundreds of hit records, making them the choice of leading artists, producers and engineers around the world.
ISA products have relied on Lundahl from the beginning, since their components were originally specified in 1985. The LL1538 has a 3-section winding, giving very low leakage inductance and an extended frequency response as a result of this. The Lundahl Transformers are housed in mu-metal cans to protect them from stray magnetism.
Variable input impedance and up to 80 dB of gain
ISA Two has two classic Focusrite mic preamps, with four impedance settings including the original ISA 110 setting. Variable input impedance lets you to go for an accurate, transparent sound or choose to highlight the character of your favourite vintage mic ? and anywhere in between. With up to 80 dB of low-noise gain, ISA Two can perform in even the most demanding situations.
Insert your choice of processors
A fully balanced insert point found via TRS sockets on the rear panel for each channel and is enabled with a front-panel button, making it easy to use outboard processors by plugging in your choice of EQ, compressor or limiter.
