OVERVIEW

6-in, 6-out USB audio interface with two Scarlett mic preamps.

The second generation Scarlett range is packed full of upgrades. Scarlett generation 2 features super-low latency that will bring confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. Its metal volume controls and a sleeker red metal chassis underscore its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere. Scarlett USB audio interfaces also now operate at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz, and the input channels have evolved too. The latest Scarlett mic preamp features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned so it can handle seriously hot pickups for recording electric guitar.

The latest generation Scarlett 6i6 is a 6-in, 6-out USB audio interface perfect for anybody who wants more than two analog inputs: multi-instrumentalists, producers, recording artists, and small bands who want to record vocals, guitar and keyboards simultaneously. It gives you four analog inputs with two Scarlett mic preamps, four analog outputs and two separate headphone outputs, so you can give different headphone mixes to different artists, or an engineer and an artist.

Focusrite interfaces are the perfect partner for Pro Tools, so Scarlett 6i6 comes with Pro Tools | First recording software, as well as Ableton Live Lite and a suite of software and samples so you can start recording straight away. As you’d expect, it works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC.

FEATURES
  • Four analog inputs, including two Scarlett mic preamps with plenty of even gain
  • Two newly designed instrument input, designed for seriously hot pick-ups
  • Class-leading digital conversion at up to 24-bit / 192kHz
  • Super-low latency lets you perform and produce using effects in real time
  • Four balanced analog outputs for connecting studio monitors or outboard gear

Bigger, faster, easier than ever before—experience the 2nd generation Scarlett series today!

    Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface:

    I purchased this product as an upgrade for my last audio interface. I was looking for live monitoring and S/PDIF ins and outs.

    This product satisfied those requirements and also came with a bunch of other benefits, including easy-to-see and understand gain monitoring with its glowing rings. It feels sturdy and the knobs are easy to move as well.

    Perhaps the only small downside is the Focusrite Control software you install in order to configure your audio routing between the 6i6 and your computer. The software itself is quite nice, but there is very little in the way of documentation for it - nothing in the box and not much on the web either. It took me a few extra minutes to understand how I needed to configure it for my needs. A very minor nitpick, but worth mentioning.

    Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface:

    I recently upgraded to Sonar Platinum and purchased the Focusrite 6i6. For the first week while using the Focusrite to record I would get a fatal error message and Sonar would crash. I contacted Focusrite Reps and they provided a Beta Driver for the product. I don't get the fatal error now but Sonar will freeze after recording when I am editing the recording. I believe it is a Driver problem.

    Clean, No Latency Recording

      Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface:

      I have been on a frustrating journey to find a no latency, guitar recording solution that has S/PDIF inputs. After buying numerous pieces of equipment without success, I was about to go very high end and spend a lot of money. I decided to gamble first on this instead and I am glad I did.

      This is very easy to use with WIndows 10 64bit. In addition I am getting absolutely no latency or noise. I am very happy about this product, as I can now focus again on recording.

        Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface:

        This was purchased as a backup to my studio's main unit. Tests I've done it will do what I wanted it for. Focusrite has a much improved control program over the overly complex one that I had with an older Focusrite device.
