Product description

style:18i8 (4 Mic Pres)  |  Pattern Name:Interface

The third-generation Scarlett 18i8 is the perfect audio interface for recording engineers and producers who need to adapt to their recording environment. It offers eight analog inputs: four mic/line inputs, two high-impedance, high-headroom instrument inputs and four additional fixed-line inputs on the rear. An optical input allows for expansion of up to eight additional channels for larger recording sessions. And with improved A-D and D-A conversion, your recordings and playback will sound clear and pronounced up to 24-bit/192kHz. Scarlett 18i8 features four of Focusrite's 3rd Gen Scarlett mic preamps: with optional Air setting to reproduce the Air effect of their original ISA mic preamp, giving your vocal or acoustic recordings a brighter and more open sound. There’s a pad on every mic preamp to accommodate higher-level signals without clipping. Scarlett 18i8 offers two extra line outputs over the previous generation, and speaker switching technology for dual monitor setups. Two independent headphone outputs allow for both engineer and artist to monitor during recording sessions, and a pair of virtual loopback inputs allows you to capture a stereo feed of any combination of hardware input and software playback channels – making podcasting, live streaming and sampling tasks easier. Scarlett 18i8 is designed to stand up to days on the road, and connects straight to your Mac or PC via USB cable. It comes with all the software tools you need to get started: two comprehensive digital audio workstations, Ableton Live Lite and Pro Tools First Focusrite Creative Pack; Softube’s Time and Tone Bundle; Focusrite's Red Plug-in Suite; a choice of one of four of XLN Audio’s Addictive Keys. If that wasn't enough, Focusrite has partnered with Splice to give 3rd Gen. interface owners a free 3-month Splice Sounds subscription when setting a new Splice account. Splice Sounds offers millions of high quality, royalty-free one-shots, loops, and presets, with new releases daily. Interested in what headphones are compatible with Scarlett?

1.0 out of 5 stars Hardware not recognised on Macbook Pro Mojave.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 19, 2019
I installed the Focusrite Control software on my Macbook Pro 2018 (Mojave) and even though Logic Pro could see the hardware the Focusrite software was unable to. I followed the online troubleshooting guide but this didn't help. I also checked the security settings to see if the driver was being blocked which it wasn't. So I have sent it back. As usual Amazon's return policy is excellent so no problems there. Incidentally, even though this is a 3rd generation USB C device it ships with a USB C to USB 3 cable so having USB C connectivity on the interface seems completely pointless to me. If you're using a macbook pro you'll need an adapter.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 5, 2019
1. The routing software is not starting at all, when you try to start it will hang but temporarily you will gain access to routing, unfortunately after restart again you'll access.

There was another with this review on Macbook. I have i9 9900K with Win10 Pro with updated. Tried newest version of a software.

2. Sound quality... Not impressed at all, I have Yamaha Audiogram6 which produces better quality and has much lower noise level.

Hard to say much more as non working software is an issue, don't get me wrong, you can use it to get the sound out of a pc, however pointless to record...

So very expensive sound card with very limited capabilities.

Mic was fine.

Some people buy these for low MIDI input lag... Never tested as I am using komplete kontrol s49 mk2.
