Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 USB Audio Interface  - Information

Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 adds another highly flexible USB audio interface to the ever increasing number of Scarlett series soundcards. Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 features cross-platform operation combined with a comprehensive feature set and the best audio performance in its class, offering 24-bit 96 kHz audio capture. Scarlett 18i8 comes packed with numerous inputs, including 4 microphone preamps, and has the connectivity to support up to 12 mic inputs via the addition of an ADAT compatible preamp, for example one of the Octopre range of interfaces.

Scarlett 18i8 with its 48V phantom power capability is perfect for recording multiple instruments simultaneously with high-quality condenser mics. Musicians will also love the direct monitoring mode, which removes the latencies associated with listening back to the input signal through the DAW. Artists can record into the DAW in real time, whilst hearing a zero latency monitor feed from their input sources, controlled by a single knob for easy blending between direct monitoring and DAW playback. In common with other interfaces in the Scarlett series, input level controls feature a novel LED "signal halo" around the knob that indicates signal presence (green) and input overload (red), while a large-diameter silver volume knob gives you full and accurate control over monitor levels at all times, so whether you are mixing your music, or listening back to the track, the levels will always be in your control.

Alongside the four Focusrite preamps are an additional four line-inputs, balanced TRS monitor outs, SPDIF I/O and two independent stereo headphone outs. The converter performance ensures that the quality of the audio streamed from the computer is sonically superb and Scarlett MixControl provides a DSP mixer with flexible routing capabilities, intuitive one-click presets, and lower than 1.4 ms latency.

Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 also ships with an excellent package of software tools to help you get your music down straight away. The latest version of the Focusrite Scarlett Plug-in Suite includes Compressor, Reverb, Gate and EQ in the form of VST/AU/RTAS plug-ins. Focusrite's established Xcite+ bundle is also included, which features Ableton Live Lite (for all your production, performance and compositional needs), Novation's Bass Station soft synth and over 1GB of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters.
