OVERVIEW

6x6 USB 2.0 audio interface with four Focusrite preamps.

The Scarlett 6i6 from Focusrite features two of their award-winning preamps that are poised and ready to deliver exceptional quality recordings from multiple sources straight to your computer or iPad (Apple Camera Connection Kit required). The 6i6 has six inputs and six outputs, housed in a tough aluminum enclosure with monitor control and gain knobs to keep your signals in check.

Focusrite: Over 25 years of audio excellence
Focusrite was commissioned to make its first ‘no-holds-barred' microphone preamps by Sir George Martin for his Air Studio facility in London. Over the following 25 years Focusrite designed some of the finest mic preamps in the music industry, and in recent years has developed a series of best-selling audio interfaces for people who really care about sound.

Perfect for producers and bands
Scarlett 6i6 is perfect for producers, recording artists or small bands. Featuring two award-winning Focusrite mic preamps and a stereo line input, 6i6 is great for recording vocals, guitar and a stage piano simultaneously. With the four balanced outputs, connect up to two sets of stereo monitors, and use the S/PDIF I/O for connecting digital sources. There are also two built-in headphone outputs with separate volume controls so multiple recording artists can listen to the mixes they need to get the best take. The inputs and outputs feature precision 24 bit A-D, D-A conversion at up to 96KHz in order to get the most accurate signal possible into and out of your computer.

Hardware features
The outer case is a tough aluminium extrusion, which protects the components inside. There is a large main monitor control knob as well as two dedicated gain knobs for each mic input, each with two colour ‘gain halos' which light up green to indicate that sound is detected, and red if the level is too high. Both mic inputs can be switched between instrument, line and microphone, and a pad can switched-in to cope with high-level inputs.

Included software
Scarlett 6i6 works with Mac, PC and iPad (using an Apple camera Connection Kit - available separately from Apple). It comes with a bundle of included software. Scarlett MixControl is a software control panel for routing the inputs and outputs, and accessing additional features on the hardware. It also comes with Ableton Live Lite: revolutionary production and performance software that can be used to record and playback audio in a totally unique way. The Scarlett Plug-in Suite is also included, supplying EQ, compression and reverb to professionalise your mixes.

Note: Includes the Focusrite Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-In Suite (AAX/AU/VST) upon registration of interface. Accurately modeled on the classic Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor, the Red plug-ins let you exploit the sound of the hardware originals, conveniently from within Pro Tools (10 and above) and other audio software.

  • Two award-winning Focusrite mic preamps
  • High quality 24bit 96KHz audio interface for Mac, PC and iPad

      Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 Audio Interface:

      I was struggling with getting consistent playback and recording results from my old firewire interface by optimizing windows 7 again and again, uninstalling unnecessary programs, limiting my startup and services and finally I HAD ENOUGH. Bought the FocusRite 6i6 at the suggestion of others using it in a similar application and it has literally performed flawlessly. LOVE IT!!

        Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 Audio Interface:

        Up until I purchased the 6i6 I had been using an M-Audio Fast Track Pro interface. I was happy with the M-Audio, or at least I thought I was until I began recording with the Focusrite. The Focusrite adds a very subtle warmth to the tone coming in throught the mic pres, in addition the TRS inputs on the back of the unit sound great two. It's a bit deceptive calling it a 6i6 because you can only record 2 mics and 2 instruments at a time, unless you have a S/PDIF output on your gear. Which I do not, but I am EXTREMELY happy with the quality of the build as well as the sound I'm getting out of it. The Scarlett Mix Control software (included is what you use to control most of the functionality of the unit and it's confusing at first, but there is a great tutorial on Youtube for this specific device and it really helped me. (plus you can do a loop back using the SPDIF in case you need to record Youtube or play along with a different source.)

        Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 Audio Interface:

        Install the latest drivers from the Focusrite website; contrary to another reviewer, the 6i6 works perfectly in Windows 7. Using the provided ASIO driver I can now run multiple audio sources at the same time, something you can't do with ASIO4ALL with mainboard audio.

            Crackled during recording playback. I spent alot of time researching this issue online. Other people are experiencing the same issue. Avoid this piece of equipment until Focusrite perfects its drivers!

                  Comments about Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 Audio Interface:

                  I could not be happier with this interface. Scarlett is known for being the premier interface right now and it lives up to it. My band uses this through Logic to record and MainStage to play backing tracks and click tracks for live performance. The two mic pre's are great and what I really bought this device for is the four line outs for live performance. If you are looking for solid performance and excellent quality,without breaking the bank,the Scarlett 6i6 is for you.
