Focusrite's long standing history for engineering award-winning preamps makes their audio interfaces stand head and shoulders above the rest. The 18i8 is no exception, this robust interface is built with four combination input Scarlett mic preamps. With latency of just 2.74ms, the i8's digital conversion is lightening fast, without compromising on audio quality. Moving to the interface's inputs and outputs, the i8 comes with four extra line inputs on the rear panel as well as four front panel XLR inputs. In addition, the ADAT input will expand your recording sessions and will allow you record eight analogue and/or digital audio tracks simultaneously. Avid and Focusrite have strived to ensure that your new 18i8 interface integrates effortlessly into your Pro Tools set-up. The i8 is compatible with all market leading DAWs across PC and Mac systems.

All the Ins and Outs you need

Four combination inputs, all with expertly engineered Scarlett mic preamps, with two of the newly designed inputs allowing for even more headroom so you can record any combination of instruments and/or vocals together. Add even more keyboards, synths and mixers with the four rear panel TRS line inputs too. Easily record up to ten simultaneous channels together by connecting any equipment with digital I/O to the SPDIF inputs. Your engineer can now monitor your artist with two separately routed headphone mixes. Meanwhile connect your monitoring speakers via the two balanced TRS outputs.  Add your much loved hardware synths into the session with MIDI connectivity which allows for integration with DAW of choice.

New Generation - Better in every way

New to the Scarlett range is the even bigger increase in sample rate capabilities of up to 192kHz for clear sound quality. The polished and professional design of the new i8 model makes this Scarlett interface tough enough to go anywhere. Impressive low roundtrip latency means quicker response times and a more even gain structure thanks to the latest mic preamps from Focusrite.

* Super-low roundtrip latency was measured at 2.74ms, working at 96kHz with a 32 samples buffer on Logic Pro X, running on a Mac Pro and OS 10.11
