Focusrite 18i20 Scarlett 3rd Generation USB Recording Interface

From Focusrite:

MAKE YOUR SPACE A STUDIO.
Scarlett interfaces sit at the heart of more music-making, recording and production spaces than any other range, and 18i20 is Scarlett’s most versatile interface. The rack-mountable 3rd Generation 18i20 gives you 18 inputs and 20 outputs of incredible sound quality. Enough to make any space into a fully-fledged recording studio.

Eight of the best performing Scarlett mic preamps the range has ever heard – now with Air – for miking up guitars or recording vocals

Two high headroom instrument inputs, for plugging your guitar or bass straight in

Four monitor outs, featuring anti-thump tech and speaker switching

Built-in talkback mic, for talking to the band from your studio

CHANNEL YOUR INNER PRODUCER
18i20’s high channel count and even higher audio quality are designed to give you all the ins and outs you need to get the best sound every time. Leave all your instruments plugged in for easy writing and recording or put the vast I/O to work in large recording sessions. Make anywhere your control room with the built-in talkback mic. Reference your recordings on multiple monitor setups with speaker switching. Wherever you take 18i20, you’re ready to produce.

YOUR RECORDINGS 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.

DRUM UP SOME INCREDIBLE RECORDINGS
With Scarlett 18i20’s dual ADAT optical In and Out ports, you can expand your recording and mixing capabilities, adding up to eight further inputs and outputs at 48kHz or 96kHz via a mic pre such as Scarlett OctoPre or Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic, or four channels at 192kHz. That’s more than enough channels to mic up the whole band and route a full mix to a console or summing box.

THIS IS YOUR CUE
Focusrite Control makes it simple to route your audio and cue mix, loopback and monitor mixes, from your Mac®, PC, iPad®, iPhone® or iPod touch®. Send, stream, sample – simple.

INTRODUCING SCARLETT 3RD GEN
The new generation of our best-selling range of USB audio interface

Playing a part in the production of more tracks than any other audio interface in history, Scarlett makes turning your musical vision into sonically pristine reality totally hassle-free. For Scarlett 3rd Gen, we’ve added our best-ever Scarlett mic preamps, additional fixed line inputs, refined monitoring features and enhanced performance, ensuring professional-quality recording results every time.

The Scarlett 3rd Gen line-up comprises six interfaces: Solo, 2i2, 4i4, 8i6, 18i8 and 18i20, plus two Studio bundles – Solo Studio and 2i2 Studio. Whether you’re looking to perfectly capture every nuance of your guitar and vocals, or bring together your studio’s ever-expanding array of synths, drum machines, outboard and effects, there’s a model in the Scarlett 3rd Gen range for you.

With its exceptional design and rock-solid build quality, Scarlett is already loved by guitarists, singer-songwriters, electronic musicians and engineers as a truly versatile and reliable recording solution – but Scarlett 3rd Gen takes every element of it a step further…

OUR BEST SCARLETT PREAMPS EVER
Focus on your music without worrying about your recordings. Feeding into class-leading 24-bit/192kHz converters, the Scarlett 3rd Gen mic preamp is high in gain, low in noise and supremely transparent. We’ve been making preamps for 30 years, and our decades of experience mean Scarlett sounds just like you.

THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE AIR
Activate the Air circuit on Scarlett 3rd Gen’s upgraded mic preamps to make your guitars and vocals sound instantly brighter and more spacious, giving them a lustrous sheen that can make all the difference in the mix. Air emulates the technology of the same name from our legendary ISA preamp – just ask your local hit record producer how big a deal that is.

I/OS AND HALOS
From the compact 2i2’s two inputs and two outputs, to the rack-mount 18i20’s immense 18 analogue and ADAT digital inputs, and 20 outputs, Scarlett 3rd Gen caters to all I/O requirements, no matter how simple or expansive. You get instrument inputs with sky-high headroom, ultra-clean balanced line level inputs, balanced TRS outputs for doing away with speaker hum, headphone outputs (two of them with the 8i6, 18i8 and 18i20), and MIDI I/O for hooking up external synths. Focusrite’s signature Gain Halos, meanwhile, light up around gain knobs to indicate input levels, making monitoring visually intuitive and guaranteeing distortion-free recordings.

FAST AND EASY
No audio interface is easier to get up and running with than Scarlett 3rd Gen. The QuickStart tool speeds you through registration and setup, while USB-C connectivity lets you plug into your laptop whenever and wherever the recording muse takes you, with latency so low you won't even notice it.

FULL CONTROL
Take command of your Scarlett 3rd Gen interface from your Mac®, PC, iPad®, iPhone® or iPod touch®. Our Focusrite Control application makes light work of audio and cue routing, monitor mixing and more.

THE PERFECT PACKAGE
Every Scarlett 3rd Gen interface comes with a package of software tools to start you on your recording and production journey, including two comprehensive digital audio workstations – Ableton® Live Lite™ and Pro Tools® First Focusrite Creative Pack – Softube’s Time and Tone Bundle; Focusrite’s Red Plug-in Suite; and a choice of one of four of XLN Audio’s Addictive Keys virtual keyboard instruments. Additionally, the Solo Studio and 2i2 Studio bundles also include the CM25 MkIII condenser microphone, an XLR cable, and the HP60 MkIII closed-back headphones – literally everything you need to make pro-quality recordings right out of the box.

As with all Focusrite products, registering your Scarlett 3rd Gen automatically makes you a member of our Plug-in Collective, offering free software downloads every couple of months and generous discounts, as well as a two-year warranty and award-winning customer support. Let’s stay together!
