The Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 2nd Gen is a compact 18in | 8out USB audio interface re-designed to give the very best sound and versatility possible, and is packed full of upgrades. Including new super-low latency* operation that will bring confidence to any performance, letting you record, monitor, and collaborate with software effects in real time. Plus, new metal gain controls and a ‘flashier’ red metal chassis that is built to go anywhere.

The Scarlett 18i8 mk2 now also features the ability to operate at up to 192kHz sample rate with 24-bit depth, for more accurate and natural sounding recordings. The latest Scarlett mic pre-amps feature a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned so it can handle seriously hot guitar pick-ups. And can be expanded via the ADAT input for additional microphones. Finally, we have provided analogue protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.
