The Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 3rd Gen is an 8-input, 6-output audio interface for analog audio enthusiasts. Don’t let its compact size fool you—the Scarlett 8i6 lets you keep your whole studio connected so you can quickly capture your creativity whenever inspiration strikes. Compliment your collection of analog audio equipment with an array of powerful creative software bundled with the Scarlett 8i6.
THE CENTER OF YOUR STUDIO
Equipped with two console-grade preamps, the new Scarlett 8i6 delivers pristine sound. Capture bright, open vocal or acoustic instrument recordings with the optional Air setting, based on the original Focusrite ISA preamp.
Record guitars and basses using two high-headroom instrument inputs on the front panel. Four additional fixed-line inputs allow you to record synthesizers, drum machines and more. With six total line-level inputs, you can leave everything in your studio connected so you never have to waste time swapping out instrument cables to experiment with different ideas.
The new Scarlett 8i6 is equipped with state-of-the-art 24-bit/192 kHz digital audio converters for the highest possible sound quality while recording and mixing.
Quickly A/B mixes on multiple systems using six balanced line-level outputs—from far field monitors, to near fields, to mono mix cubes! Or, connect the Scarlett 8i6 to your favorite outboard gear for analog signal processing.
Use the pair of virtual loopback inputs to create custom stereo monitor feeds for musicians. Two headphone outputs with built-in amplifiers let you dial in separate mixes—perfect for recording multiple musicians at the same time.
Organic instruments are objectively awesome, but creative software can help take your analog recordings to new heights. That’s why the Scarlett 8i6 comes bundled with a massive collection of instruments, effects, and creative tools to help you make the most out of your music.
