Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 USB Audio Interface
NAMM 2013: The Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 has been designed to meet the needs of today's modern home and project studios. With 18 inputs and 20 outputs in total, you get eight critically-acclaimed Focusrite microphone preamps with switchable phantom power, eight channels of digital I/O and an additional stereo digital input and output via S/PDIF.

The ADAT port allows you to connect additional preamps, like the OctoPre MkII, to boost the preamp count to 16 - enough to record an entire band simultaneously and run a small studio.

Dual independent headphone outputs mean you can set up separate mixes for the engineer and the artist, while the dedicated monitor section gives you comprehensive control of your studio monitors.

The 18i20 features precision 24-bit/96kHz AD/DA converters, giving an exceptional dynamic range and ensuring pristine recordings.

An included software bundle includes Ableton Live Lite, Novation's Bass Station soft synth, 1GB of Loopmasters samples and Scarlett VST/AU/RTAS Plug-in Suite, everything you need to start recording.

With its contemporary style, the Scarlett 18i20 is the perfect centrepiece of any studio.
