For The Hardware Music Maker.
Sitting on the desks of more producers than any other, the Scarlett range of audio interfaces means studio quality sound for more music making machines than any other. 8i6, with its dual mic-pres, fixed-line I/O and MIDI, gives you just the right connectivity to easily bring your hardware music making setup into the computer world.
Plugged In, Switched On
Plug in and produce; all your instruments, all the time. With two 3rd Gen preamps, six fixed line-ins and four balanced outs – for synths, drum machines and looping in hardware effects – 8i6 is ready to record when you are. Spend more time playing and less time plugging in.
Your Tracks Are 30 Years In The Making
We’ve been making mic preamps for 30 years, and the 3rd Gen mic pres are the best Scarlett has ever heard. The 24-bit/192kHz converters give your recordings clarity and detail. Air mode breathes life into vocals, adding unique high-end detail. Our decades of experience mean Scarlett sounds just like you.
