See our Blog for more details:


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’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.

Focusrite? Right On!
Reviewed by on

For some time I had wanted a Focusrite interface - not least for the legendary mic inputs, worthy of Focusrite's heritage (Focusrite was founded by Rupert Neve).

I decided on the 18i6 for its range of inputs (2xMic/instrument, 6 further line inputs); a two-way MIDI interface; flexible monitoring and front-panel metering. It's big enough (technically) to be quite a powerful home studio workhorse, yet small enough to travel with a laptop for a compact location rig.

The additional ADAT optical link on the rear panel gives me room to add the Octopre at a later date, expanding to 10 mic inputs. Add the 6 line inputs on the rear panel, and that's a full-blown 16-channel studio of true professional quality at a very affordable price.

Focusrite support is excellent - whether by email/telephone, or through their continual effort to further improve software and drivers (always available as free downloads).

Apart from the equivalent product in the Focusrite Saffire range (if you prefer Firewire to USB), there's nothing anywhere near the price to touch it, in my opinion.

Can't stop - have a studio project to return to!
