Founded in 1985 by Rupert Neve, Focusrite initially made custom microphone preamplifiers and EQ modules. This eventually led to compressors, gates and de-esser modules also being made. Eventually Focusrite created a console consisting of the many individual modules they had made, becoming a hit in multiple studios. Riding off the success of the consoles, they made various versions of the modules so everyone could benefit from them.
Today one of Focusrite’s most popular products is their range of Scarlett USB audio interfaces. These interfaces bring the recording studio into your home at an affordable price, all with the quality that Focusrite have become synonymous with.
