Focusrite 18-In, 20-Out USB Audio and MIDI Interface

Housed in a 1U rack-mountable enclosure, the third-generation Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 boasts extensive simultaneous I/O comprising eight mic preamps, 18 inputs and 20 outputs in total. Take your studio to the next level with 18i20, offering superior sound quality, talkback functionality and onboard speaker switching. Improved A-D and D-A conversion ensures your recordings and playback will sound clear and pronounced up to 24-bit/192kHz, vital to helping you perfect your mix.

  • Eight of the best-performing mic preamps the Scarlett range has ever seen with switchable Air mode to give your recordings a brighter and more open sound
  • High-performance converters enable you to record and mix at up to 24-bit/192kHz
  • Two high-headroom instrument inputs to plug in your guitar or bass
  • Four monitor outputs with anti-thump technology and speaker switching
  • Onboard talkback functionality with built-in front panel talkback mic
  • Eight balanced line inputs for connecting synthesizers, drum machines and other line-level sources
 

Scarlett 18i20 features eight of Focusrite's third-generation 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 also a pad on every mic preamp to accommodate higher-level signals without clipping. The two front panel high-headroom instrument inputs allow you to record guitars and basses without any clipping or unwanted distortion.

Speaker-switching technology allows you to switch between main and alt monitors to get a new perspective on your mix, while the built-in talkback mic lets you communicate with your recording artist at the touch of a button, helping you capture that perfect take. 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 18i20 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 partnered with Splice to give third-generation interface owners a free 3-month Splice Sounds subscription when setting up a new Splice account. Splice Sounds offers millions of high-quality, royalty-free one-shots, loops and presets, with new releases daily from your favorite producers, sound designers and artists. Creators use Splice to make all kinds of music, including chart-topping pop, Grammy-winning albums, underground mixtapes and cinematic scores.

As with all Focusrite products you'll also benefit from membership in their Plug-in Collective, offering free software downloads and generous discounts, as well as a two-year warranty and award-winning customer support.
