Focusrite Scarlett 18i6

18 in / 6 out USB 2.0 audio interface featuring two Focusrite mic preamps



  • Focusrite Scarlett 18i6

    Overview





    The Focusrite Scarlett 18i6 is an 18 in / 6 out USB 2.0 audio interface designed to make home multitrack recording a breeze. Alongside two award-winning Focusrite preamps, six high-quality analogue inputs allow you to simultaneously record guitar, bass, vocals and keys. You don't need to stop there either – pop in the ADAT optical cable from an outboard eight-channel mic pre unit such as the Focusrite OctoPre MkII and you can track the drums at the same time.



    Included with the Scarlett 18i6 is Scarlett MixControl, an 18 x 6 DSP mixer. Offering a superb level of flexibility, the MixControl software enables you to create six separate mixes with ultra-low-latency. Route any combination of input signals and sequencer outputs to any of the Scarlett 18i6 outputs. Intuitive one-click configurations help you track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible.



    Scarlett 18i6 comes with all of the additional tools needed to start making music straight away. Scarlett VST/AU/RTAS Plug-in Suite comes in the box, adding Focusrite compression, reverb, gating and EQ to your recording system.

    Focusrite's established Xcite+ bundle is also included. The bundle features Ableton Live Lite (for all your production, performance and compositional needs), Novation's Bass Station soft synth and over 1 gig of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters.

    Scarlett 18i6's two award-winning Focusrite preamps ensure low noise and distortion, whilst cutting-edge digital conversion captures your audio with pristine quality. 16 additional inputs allow you to capture inspired takes, without having to constantly re-patch your studio. Combined with the very latest in USB interfacing technology, excellent routing flexibility and rock-solid driver stability, the Scarlett 18i6 is the heart of the modern recording studio.

     


  • Key Features



    Two high-quality award-winning Focusrite preamps
    The best sounding interface in its class. Focusrite's 25-year legacy forms the foundation of this new interface, with two award-winning preamps.

    Total I/O count of 18 inputs and 6 outputs
    All of the analogue and digital inputs you need for home multitrack recording. No need for breakout cables - every input & output has a dedicated socket.

    High-quality 24-bit/96kHz USB interface
    Features professional conversion and jitter elimination technology, guaranteeing pristine audio quality and reliable synchronization.

    Scarlett MixControl ultra-low-latency DSP mixer/router
    Provides an 18 x 6 DSP mixer with excellent routing flexibility, intuitive one-click configurations, and lower than 1.4ms latency (less than the time it takes sound to travel two feet through air!).

    Scarlett VST/AU/RTAS Plug-in Suite, for use in the mix
    Upgrade your standard sequencer effects and bring a touch of class to your session with Focusrite's Scarlett compression, reverb, gating and EQ.

    Xcite+ Software Bundle
    Featuring a host of royalty-free loops and samples, a full-fledged soft-synth and Ableton Live Lite 8, providing an affordable upgrade path to Ableton Live.

    Two Hi-Z instrument inputs
    No need for a separate DI. The first two channels feature high-gain instrument inputs.

    Dedicated front-panel headphone bus
    Providing a fully customised monitor mix, with tactile level control available on the front panel.

    Monitor levels are always within reach
    A front panel volume dial provides immediate control over the main stereo outputs.

    Switchable phantom power
    Across both mic pre inputs, globally switchable direct from the front fascia.

    Software PFL
    Allows the mix engineer to easily monitor a single mixer channel or complete mix.

     


  • Specs

    We always quote 'real world' performance figures (measured to the AES17 standard). Some companies choose to quote chipset performance, which is misleading, and here's why.

    The difference between 'real world' and 'chipset' performance


    In deciding between two similar interfaces, the often hard-to-decipher performance specifications play an integral role for the audio engineer. And here's the problem – you would be fooled if you thought that these performance figures were reliable. Because companies do not adhere to the same measurement standards, their performance figures often misrepresent the true performance of a product. Digital dynamic range figures are a classic example of this. Worse than this, some companies in the pro-recording industry quote figures from the data-sheets they receive from the manufacturers of the silicon devices they've selected for their product. These figures are extremely misleading, since once placed in the environment of a product, with essential circuitry around the chip, performance figures change for the worse.

    Herein lies the real talent of good product design – to get the most out the chips used. Focusrite R & D have found that the difference between real-world and chipset performance can be as much as 12dB dynamic range. In other words, a chip's D-A conversion performance might be specified at 114dB by the manufacturer, but when used within an audio interface could perform at only 102dB. That difference of 12dB is equivalent to a reduction from 19bits to 17bits – essentially, the studio is being short-changed by two bits!

    The AES17 standard provides a set of guidelines on how to accurately measure the 'real-world' performance of audio equipment. Focusrite measure to this standard, but many interface companies do not. So when you're told that a product does 'exactly what it says on the tin', treat these words with caution – appearances can be deceiving.
