Professional Sound Quality

Equipped with high performance 24-bit/192kHz AD-DA converters, the Scarlett 18i8 gets you professional sound quality with it's improved A-D and D-A conversion, ensuring your recording quality is the best it can be. The 18i8 has four of Focusrite's best-performing mic preamps with an optional 'Air' setting that reproduces the effect of the original ISA mic preamp, giving your recorded vocals a brighter sound with punch and clarity.

Complete Connectivity

The focus of the 3rd Gen interfaces was to increase the connectivity to enable engineers and producers to adapt to their recording environment, no matter where they are. Channels 1 and 2 on the Scarlett 18i8 allow you to record guitar and bass using the specific high-headroom instrument inputs, whereas 3 and 4 are designed for Mic/Line inputs. All Channels have a Pad button that lets you accommodate higher-level signals without any clipping. All four of the front mounted inputs have individual gain controls and the other four are fixed line on the rear of the interface, allowing you to record up to eight mono or four stereo sources with the utmost clarity.

A pair of virtual loopback inputs let you capture a stereo feed of any combination of hardware input and software playback channels, which makes it a doddle to podcast, live stream as well as assisting in sampling tasks. The 18i8 features two independent, high-quality headphone outs with dedicated volume controls to ensure versatile and flexible monitoring whilst recording as well as speaker switching technology for dual monitor setups. An Optical Input lets you expand for larger recording sessions, giving you a maximum of eight additional channels alongside the S/PDIF In and Out as well as MIDI In and Out, giving you a wealth of options for any recording situation you find yourself in.
