Focusrite Sound with Powerful Routing

The Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 is a compact, easy to use USB audio interface perfect for professional and home studios. The Scarlett 18i8’s 4 high quality preamps accept either XLR or ¼” jack and feature either mic, instrument (ch 1 and 2 only) or line switching via the included Focusrite Control software, individual pads also switchable via software, and gain controls with unique halo level meters. Also included is a monitor level control, a mute switch for the main output, 2 high-powered headphone outputs, MIDI I/O, SPDIF I/O, optical input, 4 ¼” line inputs on the rear of the unit as well as 2 ¼” line outputs for connection to speakers.

Phantom power can also supply 48v to condenser microphones. The updated Scarlett 18i8 offers incredibly low latency times as well as a new digital converter design for recording up to 192 kHz sampling at 24-bit. The gain pots also allow for smoother and more even control while the instrument inputs have an added 8dB of headroom to accommodate hot guitar pickups. Packed with outstanding features, the Scarlett range of interfaces are arguably the most widely used USB interfaces on the market today.

 

Super-low latency for better performances

You know you perform better when you've got a great-sounding monitor mix with everything you need to hear to be inspired — for example, reverb and delay on a guitar solo. The Scarlett 18i8's super-low latency lets you monitor with native plug-in effects in real time, so you can hear your parts as you envision them and record better performances.

 

Smart I/O configuration for growing studios

The Scarlett 18i8 is a smart interface for most any recording task. Eight channels of analog inputs handle a respectable amount of gear, with optical and S/PDIF connectivity for expandability. Even if you produce your own music solo and only record a track at a time, you can leave more gear connected to your interface with the Scarlett 18i8, with the ability to easily reroute signals anytime.
