Product Overview Focusrite is pleased to announce the Scarlett 18i20, the latest in its popular series of high-quality USB 2.0 interfaces. It's designed to be your complete studio hub, and as such features enough inputs and outputs to record and mix a full band. With Focusrite's award-winning mic preamps and outstanding analogue and digital circuit design, it's capable of making pristine, studio-quality recordings. What's more, its contemporary style, with the same graphic identity as Focusrite's best-selling Scarlett 2i2 and 2i4 audio interfaces, makes it the perfect centrepiece of your studio.

An additional eight channels of digital I/O (four channels at 88.2/96kHz) are provided via ADAT lightpipe, with S/PDIF providing an additional stereo digital input and output. Dual independent headphone outputs let you set up separate mixes for the engineer and the artist, while a dedicated monitor section, with dim and mute buttons, provides comprehensive control over your studio monitors.

Scarlett 18i20 ships with a feature-packed software suite, including Ableton Live Lite music production software.
