Focusrite's second generation Scarlett Solo is ideal if you want to start recording, and now it's even better, faster and easier than before!

Sound just like you
With the Scarlett Solo USB audio interface, your recordings will sound just how you want them to. Plug straight in to record your guitar and vocal simultaneously on independent channels so they can be mixed separately.

The super-low latency* brings confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. Connect your headphones and home speakers or studio monitors, turn up the volume and totally immerse yourself in sound.

*Super-low roundtrip latency was measured at 2.74ms, working at 96kHz with a 32 samples buffer on Logic Pro X, running on a Mac Pro and OS 10.11

New Generation - Better in every way
The second generation Scarlett range is packed full of upgrades. New super-low latency* brings confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. New metal gain controls and a sleeker red metal chassis underscore its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere.

The Scarlett range also now operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz. The input channels have evolved too. The latest Scarlett mic preamp features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned so it can handle seriously hot guitar pick-ups. Finally, Focusrite have provided analogue protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.

Ready to record anywhere
Compact and portable enough to take anywhere, you won't even need a power supply; Scarlett Solo is connected and powered by a single USB cable. It also comes with the software and effects you need to start recording; an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack (featuring 12 additional plug-ins including the Eleven Lite for real life guitar amp emulations), Ableton Live Lite, the Softube Time and Tone Bundle, Focusrite's Red Plug-In Suite, 2GB of Loopmasters samples and more.

AVID PRO TOOLS | FIRST
Included with every Scarlett 2nd Gen audio interface, Pro Tools | First brings you all the main features and workflow of the industry standard Pro Tools 12 in an entry level music making package designed to get the novice producer, instrumentalist or singer-songwriter up and recording in no time.

FOCUSRITE CREATIVE PACK
Also bundled with your Scarlett 2nd Gen audio interface, the Focusrite Creative Pack adds 12 powerful plugins to Pro Tools | First, all taken from Avid’s acclaimed Eleven Rack.

Awesome guitar tones are just a few clicks away with Eleven Lite, Focusrite’s exclusive cut-down edition of the Eleven MK II amp simulator. And if that doesn’t give you the edge and bite you’re after, follow it up with Black Op Distortion, a superb emulation of the Pro Co Rat pedal. Another classic stomp box reborn in software, Gray Compressor delivers the easy dynamics shaping of the Ross Compressor, and makes the perfect partner to the five-band Graphic EQ.

Focusrite Creative Pack doesn’t skimp on the more out-there signal processing, either, with Flanger, Vibe Phaser, Roto Speaker and Sci-Fi Ring Modulator serving up a spectacular range of mind-bending modulation-based treatments.Topping the collection off are the speed-up/slow-down effects of Vari-Fi Speed Shifter, the classy algorithmic ambience of Studio Reverb, the old-school delays of Tape Echo and – last but by no means least – the essential utility of InTune Digital Tuner.

Features:
• One natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamp with plenty of even gain.
• One newly-designed instrument input, designed to handle seriously hot pick-ups
• Class-leading conversion and sample rates up to 192kHz / 24 bit
• Super-low latency* for using your plug-ins in real time without the need for DSP
• One headphones output with gain control
• Stereo line outputs on RCA phono for connecting to home speakers
• Compact and tough enough to take anywhere
• Powered by USB so you don’t need to carry a power cable
• Includes Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack and Ableton Live Lite
• All the additional software and loops you need to start recording

Comments about Focusrite Scarlett Solo Usb Audio Interface (2Nd Gen):

I was incredibly shocked at the big sound you can get out of such a small, portable interface. Normally these smaller interfaces tend to lack, but Focusrite has insured yet again that they are a big name for a reason. This interface is a great start to a home studio and can get you more of a head start than most entry level interfaces.

KILLER Interface!

By 

from Buffalo Grove, IL

Comments about Focusrite Scarlett Solo Usb Audio Interface (2Nd Gen):

I bought a Scarlett Solo to use with my MacBook and take for doing demo tracks while travelling. I've used several Focusrite products, and currently own the 18i20 for my main recording rig, so I was already familiar with the line. The preamps in the solo sound just as clear as they do in my 18i20, and its so light weight that I had no issue carrying it around in my case. Focusrite also offers a great download section on their website to make it easy if you need additional software and drivers. Definitely a 10/10
