**Scarlett Solo Gen 1 has been discontinued. Please refer to the new Focusrite Scarlett Solo Gen 2 Audio Interface.
You can capture the most accurate, best-possible-sounding performance using Scarlett Solo. The mic pre inside the Scarlett Solo’s elegant, rugged and compact aluminium case is a genuine Focusrite microphone preamp with a 30-year heritage, specially designed for our interfaces, which lets you record with the legendary Scarlett sound.
Record with Legendary Sound
Plug into an analogue audio design legacy spanning four decades. Focusrite microphone preamps are considered by many to be the best in the world.
Capture Every Detail
Precision convertors transform your live performance into studio-quality 24-bit resolution digital audio, with sample rates of up to 96kHz and an exceptional dynamic range of over 105dB.
Sleek and lightweight enough to throw into your backpack, the stunning aluminium chassis is also durable enough to endure life on the road.
Power with USB
Simply plug into your Mac or PC via USB and start recording, without the need for a bulky power supply.
Plug Any Instrument Straight In
Plug straight into a high-quality DI that minimises the risk of distortion, or switch to line level to instantly connect your mono analogue synth or outboard gear to the rest of your studio.
Immerse Yourself in Sound
Connect your headphones and speakers to immerse yourself in Focusrite-quality sound, using the large volume dial to set the perfect level.
Always Record at the Right Level
Get a clean recording every time by keeping an eye on the halos around the gain knobs. They stay green when your level is good and turn red if you’re too loud.
Everything You Need
In the box you’ll find all the virtual tools you need to make studio quality recordings and mixes. Ableton Live Lite 9 recording software, Softube’s ‘Time and Tone’ plug-in bundle, Focusrite’s ‘Red 2 & 3’ and ‘Scarlett’ plug-in suites, Novation’s ‘Bass Station’ virtual synth and 1GB of Loopmasters sample content – register your Scarlett interface and this wide range of tools is available for instant download.
Record Better Vocals
The slight delay between your singing and the sound of your voice in your headphones can be very distracting. Simply flick a switch to hear exactly what you’re recording without any of this latency.
