Introducing Scarlett's best preamps yet. The 3rd generation of the iconic Focusrite Scarlett family is here.

Focusrite has just unveiled the 3rd generation of the Scarlett audio interface. New for 2019, the Scarlett 3rd Gen features pristine 24-bit/192kHz converters and Focusrite’s Air mode from the renowned ISA mic preamp. Get your hands on one of the most popular audio interface families, updated to its best iteration yet.

A Scarlett for any occasion

The Scarlett family has stood the test of time as a range of go-to, fuss-free interfaces for modern musicians and producers. The updated family covers every musical requirement, from single-input interfaces for home musicians to multiple-input devices designed to become the bedrock of your studio. Choose from Solo, 2i2, 4i4, 8i6, 18i8 or 18i20, as well as the new Solo Studio Pack and 2i2 Studio Pack featuring the Scarlett HP60 MkIII headphone and CM25 MkIII condenser microphone – perfect for the start of your recording journey.

Rock solid performance

Part of the Scarlett’s legacy is due to its zero-fuss performance. The 3rd generation includes an easy Quick Start tool as well as super low-latency USB driver, letting you record and monitor in real time. A new Type-C USB connection is provided as well as a USB-C to USB-A cable for added versatility.

The interfaces feature improved inputs and outputs, with additional line-level inputs and balanced TRS outputs to eliminate speaker hum.

The incredible 24-bit/192kHz conversion ensures fantastic headroom and audio fidelity, while the AIR mode (emulating the ISA preamp’s unique feature) gives your recordings enhanced sparkle and clarity.

Software Included

Ableton® Live Lite™, Pro Tools® | First Focusrite Creative Pack, free three-month Splice Sounds subscription,  XLN Audio Addictive Keys, Focusrite Red Plug-in Suite and Softube Time & Tone Bundle.
