The advent of Focusrite’s new, ultra-low latency interfaces opens up a world of new possibilities for recording and overdubbing, using multiple DAW plug-ins in real time rather than needing special cue mixes and outboard DSP.
There’s no shortage of great plug-ins today, with new and exciting instruments and effects coming out all the time – but which to choose?
At Focusrite, we believe in freedom – the freedom to choose the plug-ins that get musicians, producers and engineers their signature sound, exactly the way they want it.

The new generation of Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 is ideal for musicians, producers and small bands who want to record audio from a wide range of sources such as drums, guitars, keyboards and vocals simultaneously.

It comes in a sleeker red metal chassis with new metal gain dials adding to the rugged construction of the audio interface. Focusrite have also added analogue protection circuitry to protect your interface from unwanted power surges.All the Ins and Outs You Need
We have four combination inputs with natural sounding Scarlett mic preamps and two redesigned high headroom instrument inputs that let you record a combination of instruments or vocals together. You can connect your synths, keyboards or mixers into four additional line inputs on the rear panel, and connect any equipment with digital I/O to the SPDIF inputs to record ten simultaneous channels. The ADAT lets you connect an OctoPre, expanding the 18i8 to 12 mic preamps and 16 analogue inputs! Two dedicated headphone outputs let you send separate headphone mixes to two artists, or an engineer and artist. The two balanced jack outputs let you connect to your professional studio monitors. With further MIDI connectivity, you can also integrate your favourite hardware synths with your DAW.Brand New Scarlett Control Panel
Focusrite control is included with the 6i6 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.
