Housed in a 1U rack-mountable enclosure, the third-generation 18i20 boasts extensive simultaneous I/O comprising eight mic preamps, 18 inputs and 20 outputs in total. Take your studio to the next level with the 18i20, offering superior sound quality, talkback functionality, and onboard speaker switching. Improved A-D and D-A conversion ensures your recordings and playback will sound clear and pronounced up to 24-bit/192kHz, vital to helping you perfect your mix.

Microphone Preamps
The Scarlett 18i20 features eight of Focusrite's best-ever-performing third-generation 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 and more open sound. There's also a pad on every mic preamp to accommodate higher-level signals without clipping. The two front panel high-headroom instrument inputs allow you to record guitars and basses without any clipping or unwanted distortion. Speaker-switching technology allows you to switch between main and alt monitors to get a new perspective on your mix, and the built-in talkback mic lets you communicate with your recording artist at the touch of a button, helping you capture that perfect take.

Road-Worthy Construction
Scarlett 18i20 is designed to stand up to days on the road and connects straight to your Mac or PC via USB cable. It comes with all the software tools you need to get started: two comprehensive digital audio workstations, Ableton Live Lite and Pro Tools First Focusrite Creative Pack; Softube's Time and Tone Bundle; Focusrite's Red Plug-in Suite; a choice of one of four of XLN Audio's Addictive Keys.

Bought this to use an a live interface with my band. Works like a charm with low latency, and I have yet to experience any issues. I love the sleek design and the knobs feel great.

Can't recommend this enough

5

This thing does it all! I love having the built in talk-back mic, and the addition of adding "Air" to each channel. The sound quality, and quality in general, are top notch. It is easy to use and intuitive.

3rd Gen all the way!

For drummers or engineers needing to really capture the punch of heavy sounds, this is the interface to go with. Pure and clean input on all channels makes it easy to mix with the sounds you capture.
