Focusrite Scarlett Interfaces

Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 USB Audio Interface, 3rd Gen

Overview by GAK

Focusrite’s Scarlett 8i6 USB audio interface leans towards the upper tier of the range, featuring a pretty impressive I/O configuration for a unit of its size. There’s plenty of flexibility on offer here, with an additional pair of instrument inputs compared to its predecessor the 6i6.

With a total of six inputs (two combo mic/line/high-headroom ins with Air mode and four-line ins), you’re able to multi-track record, get the most out of your stereo signals (such as synthesisers and pedalboards) and spend less time plugging in all your different instruments!

The 8i6 also features four balanced outputs for your monitoring and effects sends and, as of the 3rd-generation of Scarletts, Loopback functionality. This is a brilliant capability that’s particularly handy for streamers and podcasters as it allows you to route a stereo source from any combination of digital and analogue inputs into your DAW of choice.

Focusrite have managed to pack a tonne of versatility and power into this box - the 8i6 can be both the centrepiece of your home studio setup as well as a dependable companion when you’re recording in the wild.

In the unlikely event your interface lets you down, all brand-new Scarletts come with a three-year warranty from Focusrite and their support team is friendly and knowledgeable.

    Had to replace my Focusrite Safire Pro 24 VRM as it is not supported on M1 macs. That was a big shame because there was nothing wrong with. The new Scarlett is just as impressive as the old interface and just works. So very pleased with my purchase.
