Main Features

The Scarlett 18i8 comes equipped with Mic/Line/Instrument on universal XLR/TRS connectors, as well as Mic/Line capability on universal XLRs. In order to increase the number of mic inputs, use an ADAT optical digital connector, adding eight additional inputs that can be used with external mic preamps. Included in the design are two TRS outputs, two independent stereo headphone outputs, and one stereo S/PDIF coaxial output.

Finishing Touches

With the 18i8, breakout cables are not necessary as each analogue input and output has its own connector, all of which feature Focusrite precision 24-bit, 96kHz sampling A/D and D/A conversion. Included Red 2 and Red 3 AAX plugins make the unit compatible with Pro Tools. Scarlett MixControl low-latency DSP-based software also comes with the device to enhance your overall mixing experience. In order to use the Scarlett 18i8, 48V phantom power is required.
