Key Features:

Four award-winning Focusrite mic pres

The best sounding interface in its class. Focusrite’s 25-years of design experience underpins this new interface with four award-winning preamps

18 inputs and 8 outputs

All of the analogue and digital inputs you need for home multi-track recording. No need for breakout cables – every analogue input & output has a dedicated socket

Two independent headphone outputs each with a level control

With two fully independent headphone mixes the engineer and the artist can both listen to mix levels they need

Rugged metal unibody chassis

Whether you are in the studio or on the road your Scarlett 18i8 will not only look great, but also withstand the impacts sustained by a mobile recording rig

High quality 24bit 96KHz audio interface for Mac, PC and iPad

18i8 features professional conversion technology guaranteeing pristine audio quality and reliable synchronization on Mac, PC and iPad (or any iOS device)

Unique gain halos for safeguarding your levels

Unique gain halo indicators make it clear when you have a good signal for recording. When the halos are green you have a good level, and when they turn red it means you need to turn the gain down.

Scarlett MixControl ultra-low-latency DSP mixer and router

Scarlet MixControl provides an 18 x 8 DSP mixer with flexible routing capabilities, intuitive one-click presets and lower than 1.4 ms latency

Main monitor control with mute function

A large main monitor control knob keeps your volume levels right at your fingertips – there is also a mute button to instantly silence your monitors
