Simultaneously record vocals and guitar with top-shelf sound in a compact, bag-friendly, and easy-to-use format with this third-generation Focusrite Scarlett Solo Studio, a complete recording package featuring a third-generation Scarlett Solo 2x2 USB audio interface, a large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone, closed-back headphones, an XLR microphone cable, and a powerful software bundle. Whether you track in the comfort of your own home or record on the go, the Scarlett Solo Studio lets you score pro-level tone with no learning curve.

Equally capable for tracking vocals and instruments, the improved Scarlett microphone preamp features switchable phantom power for condenser mics and a selectable Air circuit, which adds clarity-enhancing brightness based on Focusrite's legendary ISA preamplifier. In addition to the single XLR mic input, the Scarlett Solo provides a single 1/4" input with an instrument/line switch that allows it to accept signal directly from a guitar, bass, synthesizer, or drum machine.

Unlocking the ability to record at standard CD quality or high-fidelity resolutions, the 24-bit / 192 kHz AD/DA converters ensure that signals are captured and reproduced with detail and accuracy. Listen through supplied over-ear headphones or connect active speakers to the balanced 1/4" monitor outputs, and use selectable direct monitoring to hear your live input signal with no distracting echo or latency.

With its bus powering for uninhibited portability, space-saving USB Type-C connection, and extensive software bundle including elementary versions of Ableton Live and Avid Pro Tools music production workstations, virtual instruments, plug-in effects, loops, and more, the Scarlett Solo gives you plenty of powerful tools to kick-start your inspiration. Just plug the Scarlett Solo into your Mac/Windows computer or iPad Pro, fire up your preferred audio recording software, and let the creativity flow.

The Focusrite Studio

  • Perfect for simultaneously recording vocals and guitar at home or on the go
  • Third-generation Scarlett Solo 2x2 USB audio interface
  • CM25 MkIII large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern for clear vocal tone with reduced ambience
  • HP60 MkIII closed-back, over-ear headphones deliver long-lasting comfort and reliable isolation from outside sounds
  • 9.8' XLR cable for easy hookup of the microphone 

Portable and Bus Powered

As the most compact interface in the Scarlett Series, the Scarlett Solo is rugged and ready to travel with you. Being bus powered via USB Type-C connectivity, it can be used in any room or even remote locations, with no AC outlet required.

Pristine, High-Resolution Conversion

Thanks to its high-performance 24-bit / 192 kHz AD/DA converters, the Scarlett Solo is equipped to capture any source from vocals to acoustic and electric instruments clearly and accurately, so you never have to worry about the interface clouding your sound.

Scarlett Mic Preamp with Customizable Tone

The upgraded third-generation Scarlett mic preamp features switchable 48V phantom power to accommodate your favorite condenser mic and a selectable Air setting, which reproduces the Air effect of Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp to impart enhanced brightness and openness on your vocal recordings.

Direct Instrument/Line Input

A dedicated high-impedance, high-headroom 1/4" input on the Scarlett Solo's front panel allows distortion-free recording of an instrument such as an electric guitar or bass, a synthesizer, or a drum machine, and there's no need for a DI box or an amplifier. At the press of a button, the 1/4" input can be used for a line-level source like a mixer's output or the line out from a guitar/bass amp.

Straightforward Controls and Level Indication

With the Scarlett Solo's Easy Start tool and independent gain knobs with multicolor gain halo meters, you'll have no trouble getting set up and dialing in the perfect levels. Plus, there are no menus or complicated controls to slow you down.

Headphone and Monitor Outputs

The balanced 1/4" TRS monitor outputs on the rear panel ensure hum-free connectivity with balanced studio monitors. For critical listening through headphones, just plug your earphones or headphones into the front-panel 1/4" headphone jack. A large knob is positioned next to the headphone jack for quick adjustment of the monitor and headphone volume.

Latency-Free Monitoring

No musician wants to record if they can't hear their performance clearly. Press the Scarlett Solo's direct monitor switch to listen to your input signals exactly as they are supposed to sound, with no latency and no distracting echo.

Extensive Software Bundle

The Scarlett Solo comes with a powerful bundle of music-making software from industry-leading brands. From recording to final mixdown, this bundle features tools that will help you get the sound you imagined.

How would this connect to the zoom podtrak p4?
Asked by: Anonymous
This PodTrack P4 is an audio interface itself already and it can be a recorder simultaneously while in audio interface mode. You shouldn't need this the Scarlett Solo if you already have the Podtrak P4 (unless you want higher than 16-bit audio from an interface). If you are wanting to do a podcast over Zoom meetings or something, the P4 already does everything. You can select it as a mic input and audio output in the Zoom meeting software and then hit record on the P4 to record your session locally. Hope this helps. Also, the P4 only has headphone outputs, so you wouldn't really want to connect it up to another audio interface anyway.

Asked by: Allen
No, a shock mount is not included with the bundle, but there is a microphone clip included for the CM25 MK that can be attached to most microphone stands. The CM25 has a diameter of 1.75&quot; (44.5mm) and can be used with shock mounts supporting that diameter such as the Auray SHM-UC2 Clamping Suspension Shockmount for Side-Address Microphones (B&amp;H # AUSHMUC2), Rycote InVision Universal Microphone Shock Mount (B&amp;H # RYINVUSM) or ProAm USA Universal Shock Mount for Microphones (B&amp;H # PRSHOCK)..
