OUR BEST SCARLETT PREAMPS EVER
Focus on your music without worrying about your recordings. Feeding into class-leading 24-bit/192kHz converters, the Scarlett 3rd Gen mic preamp is high in gain, low in noise and supremely transparent. We’ve been making preamps for 30 years, and our decades of experience mean Scarlett sounds just like you.
THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE AIR
Activate the Air circuit on Scarlett 3rd Gen’s upgraded mic preamps to make your guitars and vocals sound instantly brighter and more spacious, giving them a lustrous sheen that can make all the difference in the mix. Air emulates the technology of the same name from our legendary ISA preamp – just ask your local hit record producer how big a deal that is.
I/OS AND HALOS
From the compact 2i2’s two inputs and two outputs, to the rack-mount 18i20’s immense 18 analogue and ADAT digital inputs, and 20 outputs, Scarlett 3rd Gen caters to all I/O requirements, no matter how simple or expansive. You get instrument inputs with sky-high headroom, ultra-clean balanced line level inputs, balanced TRS outputs for doing away with speaker hum, headphone outputs (two of them with the 8i6, 18i8 and 18i20), and MIDI I/O for hooking up external synths. Focusrite’s signature Gain Halos, meanwhile, light up around gain knobs to indicate input levels, making monitoring visually intuitive and guaranteeing distortion-free recordings.
