The new Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 18-in/8-out interface extends the Scarlett range of USB 2.0 interfaces from Focusrite

The Scarlett 2i2 is solid enough to take on the road when you travel, but it's so much more than just a pretty metal box.

On the front panel, XLR/TRS 1/4" combination jacks from Neutrik are provided for microphone, line and instrument inputs, ideal for recording a stage piano or synth, or just flick the switch to match the signal from an electric guitar.

Professional Grade Sound
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'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.

MORE Software to get started, software to finish
Also included is Ableton Live Lite software and Focusrite’s Scarlett plug-in suite, which is compatible with all major DAWs. The plug-in suite gives you Reverb, Compression, Gate and EQ to mix your music professionally, whether you use Garage Band, Pro Tools, Digital Performer, Cubase, Logic or the included Ableton Live Lite, all within minutes of opening the box.
