New Focusrite Scarlett Second Generation Comparison Chart
Everyone's studio application is different - from those wanting to record at home who prefer something like the Scarlett Solo for quick and easy tracking to someone needing an interface like the Scarlett 18i20 with a multitude of inputs / outputs along with specialist connections to help make the recording facility as versatile as possible. The comparison chart below takes the differences and similarities into account to ensure you can start recording with the right recording tools.
Enhanced features include recording in 24 bit 192 kHz, low latency (down to just 2.74ms), analogue protection circuitry to stop power surges. A sleeker chassis and metal gain dials provide a more solid, robust feel.
Focusrite has even re-developed their instrument inputs with hotter pickups in mind. The new design ultimately helps with copious amounts of gain whilst retaining clarity - Thus removing the need to meticulously edit your recording tones or search endlessly for a sound to suit.
