Featuring two award winning Focusrite preamps and further I/O options, the Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 provides seamless integration, flexible routing and driver stability thanks to the latest in mix control software.
The compact Scarlett 8i6 also houses two additional analogue inputs and four analogue outputs, whilst S/PDIF and MIDI open the door to true multi-track recording. With no need for additional DI boxes the Scarlett’s two Hi-Z instrument inputs let you plug straight in.

Add to all of this the capability to use intuitive one-click configurations to help you track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible.
