Features We Love:

Capture Your Performance

The Scarlett 8i6 features a pair of combination inputs and four line-level inputs. This allows for various recording combinations, which for example could include two singers with a digital piano recorded in stereo, a solo musician with one vocal and a guitar, or a podcast setup with two people talking and and using a pair of turntables. Singers can also take advantage of the Air mode which adds some high end definition to the tone of your microphone.


With four line-level outputs, the 8i6 can be an essential part of your stage and studio setups.

In the studio, 8i6 could be used to send mixes to two pairs of monitors, or a mix to one pair of monitors with the other four outputs being used for FX sends where they're fed into two separate stereo effects units, returning to the four line-inputs.

On stage 8i6 can be used for sending multitrack stems to the PA, for example, you could have a backing track with bass, keyboards and backing vocals, each individually sent to the PA to be mixed by the engineer, and use the fourth output for a clicktrack which is sent to your drummer's headphones.


Activate Air to engage the All-analogue Air circuit, which switches the impedance to 2.2kΩ and adds two cumulative high shelves, totalling a 4dB boost in the high frequencies, recreating the sound of the classic Focusrite ISA 110 preamp which was commission by Sir George Martin for his iconic AIR studios. This essentially swaps the sound of your selected channel from the standard ultra-clear sound to an analog channel strip sound that makes drums pop and vocals shine.
