Focusrite interfaces are perfect partners for Pro Tools, so the Scarlett 18i8 comes with Pro Tools | First – Focusrite Creative pack, as well as Ableton Live Lite recording software 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 Windows and Mac.
Scarlett 3rd Generation interfaces also have lower latency than any other USB audio interfaces.

With ADAT, you can grow your recording capabilities even further. Want to mic up an entire drum kit? Add an eight-channel mic pre such as Scarlett OctoPre or Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic and never miss a beat.
Effects in Real Time
Super-low latency lets you enhance your recordings in ways that are simply impossible with any other interface in this class, like enabling real-time guitar amp simulation and vocal reverb (subject to your software, settings and computer).

 

 The Addictive Keys virtual instrument from XLN Audio is included for free with all Focusrite audio interfaces. One full licence per account is available for existing customers as well as new customers.

Your recording is 30 Years in the making!
Focusrite have been making mic preamps for 30 years, and the 3rd Gen mic pre is the best the Scarlett has ever had. The 24-bit/192kHz converters give your recordings clarity and detail. Air mode breathes life into vocals, adding unique high-end detail. Decades of experience mean that the Scarlett sounds just like you.
Newest Generation – Better In Every Way
The 3rd generation Scarlett Solo is packed full of upgrades. It operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz with new super-low latency* that lets you record and monitor with software effects in real time.
Focusrite completely redesigned the instrument input so it can handle even the hottest guitar pick-ups, and have made it easier than ever to set your levels accurately. They also built in new analogue protection circuitry across the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.
Crisp and Clear Conversion
Converting your performance into digital audio and back again is the most important part of the recording process. Focusrite have been making class-leading converters for over 20 years, and Scarlett 2i2 has the best converters of any interface in its class.
You can really hear the difference! Every part of your recording will be beautifully crisp and clear, even when you’re playing softly. This means you can amplify your quieter moments without any unwanted hiss or buzzing.
Find the Perfect Level
Setting the perfect level couldn’t be easier, thanks to our signature halos around the gain knobs. They glow a reassuring shade of green when you’re recording at the perfect volume. If they turn red, it’s time to back off.
