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.
 
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 course. 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.
