Record Whatever You Want, Whenever You Want
Focusrite's latest generation 18-in, 8-out USB interface is 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 our 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 in the box, 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.
New Generation – Better In Every Way
The latest generation Scarlett 18i8 is packed full of upgrades. It operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz with new super-low latency* that lets you record and monitor with software effects in real time.
We completely redesigned the instrument inputs so they can handle even the hottest guitar pick-ups, and we’ve made it easier than ever to set your levels accurately. We’ve also built in new analogue protection circuitry across the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.
Sound Like You
Easily make studio quality recordings that sound just the way you intended. Connect your microphones, guitars and line level equipment to two newly designed instrument inputs, both with natural-sounding Scarlett preamps and 48V phantom power.
Effects In Real Time
Don’t let latency hold you back. Enhance your recordings in ways that are simply impossible with any other interface in this class, like enabling real-time guitar amp simulation and vocal reverb (depending on your software, settings and computer).
