The Scarlett 18i8 USB 2.0 Audio Interface from Focusrite features 18 inputs and 8 outputs, including 4 front-panel microphone preamps on XLR/TRS combo inputs. Each of the microphone inputs doubles as a line input; the first 2 even triple as switchable Hi-Z instrument inputs. The 18i8 is compatible with Mac, PC and iPad - requires an Apple Camera Connection Kit, sold separately.

The Scarlett 18i8 is capable of resolutions up to 24-bit/96kHz and features a wide range of connectivity. Its 4 front microphone inputs can provide up to 60dB of gain and have switchable Phantom power. The rear panel has 4 additional 1/4" TRS line inputs as well as an 8-channel ADAT Lightpipe connection and a stereo S/PDIF input. The 18i8 also provides MIDI input and output jacks.

The Scarlett 18i8 has left and right 1/4" TRS monitor outputs, a stereo S/PDIF output, and two independent headphone outputs. It is housed in a rugged and compact unibody metal case to withstand constant use.

Gain Halos
Unique LED ring "gain halo" indicators make it clear when you have adequate signal for recording. Once the halos are green you have a good level; if they turn red, you've applied too much gain.
Scarlett MixControl
Scarlet MixControl provides an 18 x 8 DSP mixer with flexible routing capabilities, intuitive one-click presets and lower than 1.4mS latency.
Monitor Control & Mute
A large main monitor knob with a mute button means that monitor levels are always at your fingertips.
Software Bundle
Scarlett 18i8 comes with Ableton Live Lite, the Scarlett Plug-in Suite, the Novation Bass Station soft synth and Loopmasters sample content.
