Focusrite

18-in, 8-out USB audio interface with four Scarlett mic preamps.

The second generation Scarlett range is packed full of upgrades. Scarlett generation 2 features super-low latency that will bring confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. Its metal volume controls and a sleeker red metal chassis underscore its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere. Scarlett USB audio interfaces also now operate at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz, and the input channels have evolved too. The latest Scarlett mic preamp features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned so it can handle seriously hot pickups for recording electric guitar.

The latest generation Scarlett 18i8 is an 18-in, 8-out USB interface that's ideal for multi-instrumentalists, producers and small bands who want to record audio from a wide range of sources such as drums, guitars, keyboards and vocals. It's Focusrite's most comprehensive desktop interface, giving you four mic preamps, round-trip latency as low as 2.74ms, class-leading sound quality, and two separate headphone outputs, so you can give different monitoring settings to two artists, or an engineer and artist. It's also expandable over ADAT.

Focusrite interfaces are the perfect partner for Pro Tools, so Scarlett 18i8 comes with Pro Tools | First recording software, as well as Ableton Live Lite and a suite of software and samples so you can start recording straight away. As you’d expect, it works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC.

Features
  • Class-leading digital conversion at up to 24-bit / 192kHz
  • Super-low latency lets you perform and produce using effects in real time
  • Two independent balanced analog outputs for connecting studio monitors
