Focusrite believe sound is everything, and they're right. No matter which style of musician you are and what your budget is, we all share one common goal, to get the best sound possible. The Focusrite Scarlett Solo Audio Interface is designed to deliver on that with beautiful simplicity.
The Scarlett Solo gives you Focusrite's renowned preamp for your microphone, a crisp and clear DI/line input for your instruments, and loud, dynamic audio outputs for your headphones and speakers.
To capture a healthy signal without the risk of distortion, the Scarlett Solo utilises unique halos around the gain knobs that light up green to represent a healthy signal or red if you get too loud. Whenever inspiration strikes, simply plug any instrument in and start recording 24-bit audio at sample rates of up to 96kHz.
