Scarlett 18i20
The Interface Your Studio Deserves

Scarlett – The Second Generation
Number one selling USB interface range. Now Better. Faster. Easier.

Focusrite is proud to announce the launch and worldwide availability of its 2nd generation of Scarlett USB audio interfaces; the number one selling range of audio interfaces in the world. While the i/o count of every interface remains the same, the 2nd generation of Scarlett USB audio interfaces is packed full of improvements. Notably delivering Focusrite’s fastest USB performance yet, with roundtrip latency measurements as low as 2.74ms.*

There are six interfaces in the range, as well as two studio pack bundles, from the two in, two out, single mic preamp Scarlett Solo up to the rack-mounted 18 in / 20 out Scarlett 18i20. The improvements are immediately apparent at first glance, with new metal gain controls and a sleeker red metal chassis underscoring a host of improvements to the product design. The latest Scarlett mic preamp now features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned with increased headroom so it can handle even seriously hot guitar pick-ups. Focusrite have provided analogue protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, guarding the interfaces against unwanted power surges. The Scarlett range also now operates at sample rates up to 192kHz.

Following the announcement of an alliance between Focusrite and Avid®, Scarlett 2nd generation interfaces will also ship with Avid Pro Tools® | First. Named Focusrite Creative Pack, the exclusive offering features the free version of the industry-standard Pro Tools digital audio software, and 12 additional plug-ins, including the Eleven® Lite for real-life guitar amp emulations and Tape Echo to bring the sound of classic analog delays to mixes. Focusrite and Avid will continue to collaborate closely to ensure that all new Scarlett interfaces are compatible with each new version of Pro Tools, providing the best possible user experience. The joint commitment to testing and the inclusion of the exclusive Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack with every 2nd generation Scarlett interface makes them Perfect Partners for Pro Tools. Also provided are Ableton Live Lite, Softube's Time and Tone bundle, the Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite, 2GB of Loopmasters samples and more.

The bus-powered range of Scarlett 2nd generation interfaces is available immediately, with the Scarlett 6i6, 18i8 and 18i20 following later in June. The Scarlett range is Mac and PC compatible, working across all major DAWs.

*Round Trip Latency (2.74ms) tested at 96kHz on OS 10.11 / Mac Pro with Logic Pro X and buffer size of 32.

Handle Anything That Comes Your Way. Our latest generation 18-in, 20-out USB audio interface can handle just about anything your band or studio can throw at it. Beautiful and rack mountable, it gives you loads of I/O, pristine sound quality, separate stereo headphone mixes, extensive expansion options and round-trip latency as low as 2.74ms*, all in a 1U space.

Focusrite interfaces are perfect partners for Pro Tools, so Scarlett 18i20 comes with Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack in the box, as well as Ableton Live Lite recording software and a suite of software and samples, so you can start recording straight away. Scarlett 18i20 works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC, and we continue to work with Avid to ensure it is compatible with every update to Pro Tools.

Inputs Your Studio Deserves. Scarlett 18i20 puts eight natural-sounding combination inputs at your disposal. We put two on the front, where you need them most, with newly designed instrument inputs that can handle even the hottest signals. We put six more on the back, so you can leave your mics, synths, keyboards, mixers and effects processors permanently plugged in and ready to go.

If that isn’t enough for you, connect an eight-channel mic pre like the Focusrite OctoPre Mk II to the ADAT input for a total of 16 analogue inputs. Add the two channels of digital audio via S/PDIF and 16 channels of MIDI, and you can record just about anything you want.

World Famous Preamps. All eight analogue inputs feature pristine and natural sounding Scarlett preamps, backed by 30 years of design experience and found in the world’s top studios. These guarantee exceptional headroom, plenty of clean gain, low noise, minimal distortion and a dynamic range that is unrivalled in this class.

Create Separate Monitor Mixes. As well as eight balanced analogue line outputs, Scarlett 18i20 gives you two independent stereo headphone outputs so you can give engineer and artist their own separate, fully-customised mixes.

Revolutionise Your Workflow. An unrivalled round-trip latency as low as 2.74ms* completely revolutionises your workflow. You can work entirely inside your DAW for both overdubbing and playback, and use your plugins while recording - depending on your software, settings and computer, of ourse. You’ll also get the best out of vocal performances, by applying real-time comfort reverb to artists' headphones.

New Generation – Better In Every Way. The latest generation Scarlett 18i20 is packed full of upgrades. It operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz with new super-low latency* that lets you record and monitor with software effects in real time.

We also completely redesigned the instrument inputs so they can handle even the hottest guitar pick-ups, and built in new analogue protection circuitry across the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.

Designed for Guitarists. We’ve redesigned Scarlett 18i20's instrument inputs and given them plenty of extra headroom, so you can handle extreme levels without any unwanted clipping or distortion. If you’re recording extra loud instruments, you can also engage the 10dB pad in Focusrite Control software.

Intuitive Control Software. Scarlett 18i20 works with all major DAWs on Mac and PC, and comes with Focusrite Control: our brand new software mixer designed for easily configuring your monitoring and routing setups. Simple and intuitive to use, it gives you a traditional mixer workflow, separate headphone mixes and immediate access to internal hardware functions.

Easily Set the Perfect Level. Clipped signals ruin good takes. That's why we put eight LED bargraph meters on the front panel, to make it as easy as possible to keep an eye on your signal levels.

Start Recording Today. Scarlett 18i20 comes with time-unlimited versions Ableton Live Lite and Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack, which features 12 additional plug-ins including the Eleven Lite for real life guitar amp emulations and Black Op for iconic distortions and overdrives.

You also get Softube's Time and Tone bundle, the Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite, Novation's Bass Station Virtual synthesiser and 2GB of Loopmasters samples. Of course, Scarlett 18i20 works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC.

Used By the Best. What do Sam Smith, Foo Fighters and Massive Attack have in common? Not a lot, admittedly, but they all use Focusrite equipment because they agree with us that sound is everything.
