The third-generation Scarlett 18i8 is the perfect audio interface for recording engineers and producers who need to adapt to their recording
environment, wherever they are. It offers eight analogue inputs: four mic/line inputs, two high-impedance, high-headroom instrument inputs
and four additional fixed-line inputs on the rear. An optical input allows for expansion of up to eight additional channels for larger recording
sessions. And with improved A-D and D-A conversion, your recordings and playback will sound clear and pronounced up to 24-bit/192kHz,
vital to helping you perfect your mix.Scarlett 18i8 features four 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 a pad on every mic preamp to accommodate higher-level signals without clipping.

THE STUDIO IS WHEREVER YOU ARE

18i8 has a way in for everyone, with four mic/line inputs, two of which double as instrument-ins, and four fixed line-ins. Then, you have four balanced line-outs and speaker switching plus two independent headphone outs to monitor, mix and play back however you want. Whatever you’re recording, wherever you are, you can take your whole studio with you.


YOUR RECORDING IS 30 YEARS IN THE MAKING

We’ve been making mic preamps for 30 years, and the 3rd Gen mic pres are the best Scarlett has ever heard. The 24-bit/192kHz converters give your recordings clarity and detail. Air mode breathes life into vocals, adding unique high-end detail. Our decades of experience mean Scarlett sounds just like you.
