The Centrepiece of Your Recording Studio
The Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 is the heart of your studio. Rack-mountable and with a total of 18 inputs and 20 outputs, you can record anything from a drum kit to multiple instruments, vocals, synths and keyboards. Eight natural-sounding combination input Scarlett mic preamps give you plenty of scope for recording and the ADAT input allows you to expand your analogue inputs for larger recording sessions. Class-leading sound quality and digital conversion are complemented by a host of additional inputs and outputs alongside a super-low roundtrip latency of 2.74ms*. Focusrite is the perfect partner for Pro Tools. To that end, Focusrite and Avid will continue to work together to ensure all Scarlett interfaces are thoroughly tested with the latest version of Pro Tools.
All the Connectivity Your Studio Needs
Eight natural-sounding combination input Scarlett mic preamps deliver exceptional headroom, loads of linear clean gain, low noise and minimal distortion. The two inputs on the front panel feature newly-designed instrument inputs with extended headroom for handling extremely hot guitar pick-ups. If you want to record higher channel counts and integrate outboard gear, the ADAT expansion port will allow this. When it comes to outputs, Scarlett 18i20 delivers full routing and monitoring flexibility. There are two dedicated TRS jack outputs for studio monitors featuring anti-thump circuitry, plus eight more ¼ inch analogue jack outputs and two dedicated headphone outputs on the front panel with independent gain control. With MIDI connectivity, you can also integrate your favourite hardware synths with your DAW. Wordclock Out is also on hand for sync'ing to external devices. Focusrite have also implemented analogue protection circuitry across all input and outputs to protect your audio interface from unwanted power surges.
Brand New Scarlett Control Panel
Focusrite control is included with the 18i20 and allows intuitive control over the options of your audio interface for easy configuration of monitoring, mixing and routing. Focusrite Control offers traditional mixer workflow and allows instant access to the hardware functions you need. It also gives you remote control over unit functionality, protection across the inputs and outputs for protecting against phantom power shorting and accidental activation of phantom power to outputs
