Studio & Booth Ready

Scarlett 18i20 puts 5 natural-sounding balanced stereo outputs at your disposal, perfect for 4 channel external mixing + send/returns. This interface has enough I/O to make it the core of both your live and studio rigs with no compromises.


Latency? What's that?

Scarlett 2nd Generation interfaces have lower latency than any other USB audio interfaces. This means not only will your recordings and monitoring be spot on but it also delivers top performance while working with your favorite DAW or DJ software on stage.


World Famous Preamps

All 8 analogue inputs feature pristine and natural sounding Scarlett preamps, backed by 30 years of experience and found in top studios. These guarantee exceptional headroom, clean gain, low noise, minimal distortion & top notch dynamics.

Technical Details

Multiple I/Os, Front and Back
Eight combination inputs allow you to plug in 1/4" instruments or XLR sound sources. The two combination jacks on the front panel have been redesigned to allow for extended headroom. They also sport mic/instrument switches and pads. On the rear, two monitor outputs provide your main speaker connections, while eight pairs of line outputs give you flexibility and creativity in routing. This device also sports MIDI I/Os, as well as ADAT expansion ports to hook in eight more channels of ins and outs.

Intuitive Mix Control and Additional Software
 Focusrite Control—an included internal mixer—is designed to facilitate and power an intuitive array of routing setups. It also provides access to internal hardware functions. Furthermore, the 18i20 includes software such as an exclusive Focusrite edition of Pro Tools | First Pack, Ableton Live Lite, the Softube Time and Tone Bundle, Foscusrite's Red Plug-In Suite, and 2GB of Loopmasters samples.
