Connect and perform on the go with the Scarlett 18i8 3rd Gen Audio Interface from Focusrite. Designed for optimized portability and professional-caliber audio, this audio interface comes with preamps boasting 24-bit/192kHz converters for pristine detail, while its Air mode breathes life into vocals for even more high-end capacity. Whether you’re a musician, producer, or content creator, this compact-yet-powerful interface is an easy way to work wherever the inspiration strikes.

When it comes to achieving a professional polish to a mobile project, the Scarlett 18i8 makes it easy to mic up the entire band. It includes 4 mic/line inputs—two of which you can use as instrument inputs—as well as 4 fixed line-ins. As for outputs, the Scarlet 18i8 comes with 4 balanced line outputs and speaker switching. Two independent headphone outs are also available for monitoring, mixing, and playing back. Alternatively, you can use the interface’s dual ADAT optical In and Out ports to further expand your recording and mixing capabilities by adding up to eight more inputs and outputs (at 48kHz or 96kHz) via a mic pre such as Scarlett OctoPre or Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic, or four channels at 192kHz. The result is more than enough channels to mic up a entire drum kit. (Note that all external gear is sold separately.)

The Scarlett 18i8 comes with built-in Focusrite Control, a functionality that makes it easy to route your audio and cue mix, loopback, and monitor mixes. All these tasks are streamlined through your Mac®, PC, iPad®, iPhone®, or iPod touch® (not included). Utilize the audio interface’s vast range of onboard recording software, sounds, and plugins to send, stream, sample, and so much more.
