18-in, 8-out USB audio interface with four Scarlett mic preamps.
The latest generation Scarlett 18i8 is an 18-in, 8-out USB interface that's ideal for multi-instrumentalists, producers and small bands who want to record audio from a wide range of sources such as drums, guitars, keyboards and vocals. It's Focusrite's most comprehensive desktop interface, giving you four mic preamps, round-trip latency as low as 2.74ms, class-leading sound quality, and two separate headphone outputs, so you can give different monitoring settings to two artists, or an engineer and artist. It's also expandable over ADAT.
Focusrite interfaces are the perfect partner for Pro Tools, so Scarlett 18i8 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.
Focusrite continues to add value to their products, long after the purchase is complete, by bringing monthly plug-in deals to customers through the Focusrite Plug-In Collective. Each month registered owners of Focusrite products will receive an exclusive code via email to unlock a free or discounted plug-in from the world’s leading plug-in companies.
