- Two high-headroom instrument inputs to plug in your guitar or bass
- Six balanced line inputs for connecting synthesizers, drum machines and other line-level sources

Scarlett 8i6 provides two 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.
Record guitars or bass via the two high-headroom instrument inputs without any clipping or unwanted distortion. Get creative using the six flexible line inputs, two on the front with gain control and four fixed-line on the back, allowing you to record up to six mono or three stereo line-level sources such as synthesizers or drum machines.
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 8i6 is designed to stand up to days on the road and connects straight to your Mac or PC via USB cable. There’s no better way to step into studio recording – your Scarlett interface comes with some of the best loved tools in the business.
