Focusrite 's


8i6 USB

audio interface

is the third in a series of improvements in every aspect of the interface

, a high quality and reworked



. For musicians and producers who want to expand their set-ups and need a few extra connections, this interface provides a reassuringly simple recording process and, thanks to its powerful AD-DA converters ( 24-bit/192kHz), offers professional sound quality worth listening to. The combo sockets (XLR/jack) provide high resistance and headroom and are ideal for recording guitars, bass, vocals and more without overdrive or distortion, while the gain halos make it easy to keep an eye on input levels. The four balanced outputs are noise-free when connected to the balanced inputs of studio monitors, providing excellent sound reproduction. However, what is the difference between the third and previous generation?

New features

Overall, all users of the Scarlett series benefit from improved audio performance. The 3rd generation Scarlett microphone preamplifiers are now the Scarlett preamplifiers with the best sound. They not only provide high gain, but also low noise for stereo recording at high demands. In addition, the industry-leading 24-bit/192 kHz AD-DA converters take performance to a new level, ensuring a cleaner sound with more punch at all frequencies.

'Air' - high-end sound at the touch of a buttonThe refreshed

microphone preamps can emulate the Air effect from Focusrite's original ISA microphone preamp at Bedadrf, giving vocal and acoustic recordings a clearer sound.

Interactive introductionThere is a

so-called QuickStart tool from Focusrite on board, which guides the customer through the registration and configuration of the software and drivers.

USB driver with even lower latencyLatency

is one of the most common problems when recording, so the USB drivers have been reworked once again. Now songs can be recorded and played back in real time, while at the same time even more plug-ins can be included than before.
