Compact, Without Compromise
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.

The Scarlett Solo comes with an extensive software package so you can be ready to go within minutes of opening the box;
- Exclusive version of Pro Tools First Focusrite Creative Pack featuring 12 plug-ins including the Eleven Lite for authentic guitar amp emulation

TekSpek Guides
Date Issued: 21st Oct 2008

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.

In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.

Updating drivers can sometimes be a bit of a gamble. Will the drivers come with an installer? Will you need to uninstall the old drivers first? Many drivers these days do come with an installer, which simplifies the process dramatically.

Focusrite Scarlett Solo Gen2, USB 2.0 Interface, 192 kHz, 24 Bit, 1 Mic Pre , 2 / 2 Analog I/O is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great interface Most important - sound quality is great. I'm not an expert, but it is definitely better than my ears. Important - good build quality. Not so important - looks great. Value for money is good. Yes, there's just one LED for signal level (per input), but people who can read, can download a manual, that describes precisely how it works, and decide if this interface is suitable for them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless if you're colourblind. The clip LED is one of those that changes colour from I'm guessing what is green to I'm guessing what is orange to I'm guessing what is red, although the middle colour looks darker. Ok, this is 2017 and there are still millions of products that fail to recognise that 10% of the worlds population are colourblind. It's taken me just over a month to realise that the LED turns a different colour when clipping or even going over a certain level. I was under the assumption that the LED just came on when it was clipping. No wonder I couldn't get my levels anywhere near usable, I though the Line/Inst switch wasn't working or there was a fault in my equipment. It took a month for my other half to point out my mistake. Apart from that, it's a great bit of kit, but considering the importance of getting input gain correct, it's next to useless for me. A minor design flaw makes this unit redundant.
