Focusrite has revealed the third generation of its Scarlett range of USB interfaces.
Featuring six configurations of ins and outs, the third Gen mic pre is, claims Focusrite, the best Scarlett has ever experienced. The 24-bit/192kHz converters are designed to offer added clarity, whilst Air mode aims to breathe life into vocals, adding high-end detail. The new range includes I/O configurations to suit almost any application. Users can choose from Solo, 2i2, 4i4 8i6, 18i8 or 18i20. The new 4i4 and 8i6 add more line I/O vs the 2nd Gen 2i4 and 6i6. New Solo and 2i2 Studio Packs are also available, with Scarlett HP60 MkIII headphone and CM25 MkIII condenser microphone included – perfect for starting your recording journey.
