The Scarlett 18i20 3rd Gen Audio Interface from Focusrite is a rack-mountable piece of gear that provides 18 inputs and 20 outputs of incredible sound. Designed for optimized connectivity 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. With its premium features, this powerful interface is an easy addition to any studio, whether you’re a musician, producer, or content creator.

When it comes to upgrading your setup to a professional studio’s level, the Scarlett 18i20 delivers a high channel count and even higher audio quality—as well as the enhanced connectivity you need to achieve your goals. With the 18 inputs and 20 outputs already mentioned, you have so much I/O you can easily leave instruments and other gear connected from session to session—dispensing with pre-recording setup hassles and letting you get right back to creating your art. 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 8 more inputs and outputs each (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 large band and route a full mix to a console or summing box. (Note that all external gear is sold separately.)

If connectivity is one key to a professional audio interface setup, customization is another. The Scarlett 18i20 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.
