Austin Bazaar is an authorized Focusrite dealer.
The Scarlett 8i6 is the compact studio solution youâve been looking for, allowing you to keep all your hardware plugged in and ready to go: set up mics, guitars and synths to start creating as soon as inspiration strikes. With improved A-D and D-A conversion, your recordings and playback will sound clear and pronounced up to 24-bit/192kHz and two independent high-fidelity headphone outputs with dedicated volume control enable flexible monitoring during recording and mixing. 8i6 provides two of Focusriteâs best-ever-performing third-generation Scarlett mic preamps: with optional Air setting to reproduce the Air effect of their original ISA mic preamp, giving your vocal or acoustic recordings a brighter and more open sound.
Record guitars or bass via the two high-headroom instrument inputs without any clipping or unwanted distortion. And get creative using the six flexible line inputs â" two on the front with gain control, and four fixed-line on the back allowing you to record up to six mono or three stereo line-level sources such as synthesisers or drum machines. A pair of virtual loopback inputs allows you to capture a stereo feed of any combination of hardware input and software playback channels â" making podcasting, live streaming and sampling tasks easier.
Scarlett 8i6 is designed to stand up to days on the road and connects straight to your MacÂ or PC via USB cable. It comes with all the software tools you need to get started: two comprehensive digital audio workstations, AbletonÂ Live Liteâ¢ and Pro ToolsÂ First Focusrite Creative Pack; Softubeâs Time and Tone Bundle; Focusriteâs Red Plug-in Suite; a choice of one of four of XLN Audioâs Addictive Keys. If that wasn't enough, Focusrite have partnered with Splice to give 3rd Gen. interface owners a free 3-month Splice Sounds subscription when setting a new Splice account.
