Focusrite - Scarlett 18i8 (3rd Gen) Expandable 4-Pre Audio Interface

Unbeatable, studio-quality sound right out of the box, Focusrite releases the 3rd generation Scarlett 18i6 as an ideal interface for engineers and producers needing to adapt to their recording environment on the fly. This high-performance 24-bit/192kHz AD-DA converter USB audio interface features four of Scarlett's advanced third-generation mic preamps with a switchable Air setting feeding your vocal recording a brighter, more open sound.

Each mic preamp also features a pad to smooth out higher-level signals without clipping. Two independent headphone outputs allow you engineer and monitor during recording sessions, while two extra line outputs and speaker switching technology for dual monitor setups streamline your entire workflow. Podcasts, live streaming, and sampling are easy with the pair of virtual loopback inputs that allow capturing a stereo feed of any combination of hardware input and software playback channels.

Innovative touches include simple connection power via USB to Mac or PC, comprehensive digital audio workstations Ableton® Live Lite™ and Pro Tools® First Focusrite Creative Pack, and—exclusively for the 3rd Gen. Scarlett Solo—a three month subscription to Slice Sounds for access to limitless professional level loops, presets, and daily releases from your favorite sound designers, producers, and Grammy-winning artists. Explore new realms of your sound with Scarlett 18i8-3G.
