I also have a Focusrite Scarlett (2nd Gen) with a similar set up, except
it is standard Ubuntu (Gnome) 20.04. I have not had problems until
recently when sometimes the device is not available and I have to turn
it off and on again. It has only happened twice and I have not tracked
the problem down.

What are your settings in Studio Controls (Audio Setup)? Do you have the
Ubuntu Studio ppa set up to get the latest versions of the US packages?
