Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 (3rd Gen) USB Audio Interface
The Scarlett 8i6 is the compact studio solution you’ve been looking for, allowing you to keep all your hardware plugged in and ready to go. With improved A-D and D-A conversion, your recordings and playback will sound clear and pronounced up to 24-bit/192kHz and two independent high-fidelity headphone outputs with dedicated volume control enable flexible monitoring during recording and mixing. 8i6 provides two of Focus rite's best-ever-performing 3rd Gen Scarlett mic preamps: with optional Air setting to reproduce the Air effect of their original ISA mic preamp, giving your vocal or acoustic recordings a brighter, more open sound. Record guitars or bass via the two high-headroom instrument inputs without any clipping or unwanted distortion. And 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 allows you to capture a stereo feed of any combination of hardware input and software playback channels. Scarlett 8i6 is designed to stand up to days on the road and connects straight to your Mac or PC via USB cable.
