OVERVIEW

Second-generation 6-in/6-out USB 2.0 audio interface with 24-bit/192kHz performance.

Two combination inputs with Scarlett mic preamps, line level inputs and high headroom instrument inputs let you record any combination of instruments or vocals. Connect your synths, keyboards or mixers into two additional line inputs on the rear panel, and connect any equipment with digital I/O to the SPDIF inputs to record six simultaneous channels at once. Two headphone outputs let you send individual headphone mixes to two artists, or an engineer and artist, while four balanced jack outputs let you connect to both studio monitors and outboard gear. With MIDI In and Out, you can also integrate your favorite hardware synths with your DAW.

Remote control from iPhone or iPad
Download the free Focusrite iOS Control app and adjust cue mixes created with the Focusrite Control desktop app remotely from an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

New Generation - Better in Every Way
The second generation Scarlett range is packed full of upgrades. New super-low latency* will bring confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. New metal gain controls and a sleeker red metal chassis reassure you of its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere. The Scarlett range also now operates 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 guitar pick-ups. Finally, Focusrite have provided analog protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.

Intuitive Mix Control and All The Software You Need
Scarlett 6i6 is compact and tough enough to take to your live shows for onstage recording or playback. The included 'Focusrite Control' is a brand new software mixer for easy configuration of monitoring and routing setups. Simple and intuitive to use, Focusrite Control offers a traditional mixer workflow and allows immediate access to internal hardware functions. Also included is the software and effects you need; an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack (featuring 12 additional plug-ins including the Eleven Lite for real life guitar amp emulations), Ableton Live Lite, the Softube Time and Tone Bundle, Focusrite's Red Plug-In Suite, 2GB of Loopmasters samples and more.



* Super-low roundtrip latency was measured at 2.74ms, working at 96kHz with a 32 samples buffer on Logic Pro X, running on a Mac Pro and OS 10.11

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

Pros

  • Clear Sound

    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:

      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.
