The Second generation Scarlett Solo from Focusrite is an ideal entry level audio interface especially suited to the solo guitarist/vocalist. Featuring the same outstanding sound quality and conversion as the rest of the Scarlett range, the Scarlett Solo is portable enough to be taken anywhere. Simply connect with a single USB cable, plug in your guitar and microphone and you're ready to record studio quality audio wherever you are. Presented in a new sleeker red metal chassis, familiar features such as the Scarlett Mic Preamp and Gain Halos return alongside a metal gain control dial and newly designed instrument input which allows for some seriously hot instrument pick-ups.
Record With Confidence
With improved sample rates upto 192khz/24bit, super-low latency* and a new gain structure on the Mic Pre you can be confident that you will capture your sound the way it was meant to be heard. The new linear gain structure allows you to accurately set your input levels while the super-low latency means you can use your plug-ins in real time without the need for costly DSP cards. You can connect your mic and guitar at the same time and record simultaneously to separate channels allowing for easy mixing. Focusrite have also provided analogue protection circuitry across the inputs and outputs to safeguard your audio interface from power surges.
