Our latest generation 6-in, 6-out USB audio interface is perfect for anybody who wants more than two analogue inputs: multi-instrumentalists, producers, recording artists, and small bands who want to record vocals, guitar and keyboards simultaneously. It gives you four analogue inputs with two Scarlett mic preamps, four analogue outputs and two separate headphone outputs, so you can give different headphone mixes to different artists, or an engineer and an artist.
Focusrite interfaces are perfect partners for Pro Tools, so Scarlett 6i6 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. As you'd expect, it works with all major DAWs on Mac and PC.
Sound Like You:
Backed by 30 years of design experience, these two Scarlett preamps offer a pristine and natural sound, with 48V phantom power, superior linear gain, low noise, low distortion and dynamic range that is unrivalled in this class.
Be Ready For Anything:
Need to record vocals, guitars and bass together? You need Scarlett 18i8. It gives you twice as many preamps as Scarlett 6i6 and 18 separate inputs, so you can be ready for anything.
Two separate headphone outputs let you give two artists (or an engineer and artist) their own headphones and monitoring settings.
You also get four balanced outputs so you can connect two sets of monitors, or send audio to an effects processor.
Effects In Real Time:
An unrivalled round-trip latency as low as 2.74ms* lets you do things that are simply impossible with most other USB interfaces (subject to your software, settings and computer). You can work entirely inside your DAW for both overdubbing and playback, and use your favourite plugins while recording - whether it's reverb on a vocal, a guitar amp simulator, or even virtual instruments live on stage. You'll also get the best out of vocal performances, by applying real-time comfort reverb to headphones.
Start Recording Today:
Compose, record, edit, save and export your music straight away, with time-unlimited versions of industry-standard music software: 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.
Scarlett 6i6 works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC, and all the software included is simple enough for beginners, yet sophisticated enough for advanced users.
At just over 1kg and protected by a solid metal case, Scarlett 6i6 is lightweight and compact, yet tough enough to take to your live shows for onstage recording or playback.
Designed for the Guitarist:
We've redesigned the 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.
New Generation - Better In Every Way:
The latest generation Scarlett 6i6 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 completely redesigned the instrument inputs so they can handle even the hottest guitar pick-ups, and we've made it easier than ever to set your levels accurately. We've also built in new analogue protection circuitry across the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.
Intuitive Control Software:
Scarlett 6i6 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 and immediate access to internal hardware functions
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.
Find the Perfect Level:
Setting the perfect level couldn't be easier, thanks to haloes around the gain knobs that glow a reassuring shade of green when you're recording at the perfect volume. If they turn red, it's time to back off.
