Scarlett Solo is a compact USB audio interface featuring one award-winning Focusrite mic preamp, one instrument input, precision digital converters and a tough yet beautiful aluminum chassis.

Scarlett Solo is a compact, one-channel USB audio interface featuring one of Focusrite's award-winning mic preamps, with precision digital converters and a crystal clear DI / line in for  instruments like guitar, bass guitar and analog synths.

The digital converters capture your performance with professional standard 24-bit resolution at sample rates of up to 96kHz. Hooking it all up is as easy as connecting it to your  Mac or PC via USB (USB cable supplied) and hitting "Record." The halos around the gain knobs serve as meters as well, making it possible for you to precisely set your levels safely with unique gain halos that are green when the level is right and turn red if the signal's too loud. The direct monitor switch allows you to instantly hear exactly what you’re recording with no latency.

Connect your headphones and speakers and use the large volume dial to set the perfect level with Scarlett Solo's exceptional dynamic range of over 105dB. Built tough and designed to be compact, it travels in your backpacks and withstands the bumps of the road.

Includes Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite w/64-bit AAX, AU & VST compatibility
These are the first Focusrite plug-ins to include AAX support, making them compatible with Pro Tools 10 and above.  The Red 2 & Red 3 plug-ins are accurate models of Focusrite’s classic Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor hardware. Coveted by producers and engineers for their exceptional clarity and versatility, the original units are prized fixtures in professional recording studios the world over.

Now, the Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite (AAX/AU/VST) lets you exploit the famous natural sound of the originals, conveniently from within your audio software.

The plug-ins faithfully reproduce the sonic qualities of the hardware. The Red 2 equalizer is a sweet sounding 6-band design, with high/low pass filters, high/low frequency shelves, as well as fully parametric low-mid and high-mid frequency bands. The Red 3 hardware is a VCA compressor design, excellent for natural sounding dynamic control of drums, bass, vocals, and acoustic instruments.

                  a great interface for a bedroom studio, small and compact, just like all the reviews on youtube, register it, down load the drivers then plug it in, and start recording, its that easy and works great.

                            Focusrite has high quality products. The built in pre-amp will make any vocalist happy. Plug in an instrument for simultaneous or direct recording. This can be used to catch a live take and still separate vocals from the instrument for easy post production. The included software is easy to use as well. For a newbie in the recording world or someone just looking for an easy on the go system, this interface is top notch. This is a real hand on product review from Zak at Sam Ash.
