Overview

A powerful, low latency, 8-input audio interface with quality mic preamps and a tabletop interface.

The Scarlett 8i6 provides two of Focusrite’s top-performing third-generation Scarlett mic preamps with an optional Air setting to reproduce the Air effect of their original ISA mic preamp, giving your vocal or acoustic recordings a brighter and more open sound. Record guitars or bass via the two high-headroom instrument inputs without any clipping or unwanted distortion. You can also get creative using the six flexible line inputs—two on the front with gain control, and four fixed-line on the back allowing you to record up to six mono or three stereo line-level sources such as synthesizers or drum machines. A pair of virtual loopback inputs allow you to capture a stereo feed of any combination of hardware input and software playback channels, making podcasting, live streaming and sampling tasks easier. The Scarlett 8i6 is designed to stand up to days on the road and connects straight to your Mac or PC via USB cable. It comes with plenty of software tools to get started, including Ableton Live Lite and Focusrite Hitmaker Expansion, Softube’s Time and Tone Bundle, Focusrite’s Red Plug-in Suite, a choice of one of four of XLN Audio’s Addictive Keys and more.
