6-in/6-out USB 2.0 audio interface with dual Focusrite mic preamps

Like the other members of the Scarlett range of USB 2.0 computer audio interfaces, Scarlett 6i6 MK2 brings you the best of Focusrite’s interface design, proving that at Focusrite, sound really is everything, with precision analogue/digital conversion and, in the case of the 6i6, two Focusrite microphone preamps, custom-designed for our computer interface range, that bring a new level of clarity and sound to all your work. 6i6 is a 6 in / 6 out audio interface that delivers superb quality recordings from microphones and instruments, straight into your Macintosh® or Windows® computer or iPad® (Apple Camera Connection Kit required with iPad). And, with the new Red 2 and Red 3 AAX plugins (included), it’s perfect for use with Pro Tools®.

Focusrite: 30 years of all-round audio excellence
 
Focusrite was founded by Rupert Neve in 1985 to create the highest quality mic preamps for Sir George Martin’s AIR Studios. Those classic, internationally-acclaimed designs have informed all Focusrite mic pre designs created over the past 30 years. The mic pres included in Scarlett interfaces were designed specifically for the purpose, combining the best of our heritage design experience with the latest components and technologies for the most transparent, effective path in and out of your computer. Alongside the preamps is Focusrite’s acclaimed precision digital conversion, ensuring you get the very best recording and replay. Our careful selection of components and equally careful circuit design plus the performance benefits of multi-layer boards ensure that you get superior low noise and low distortion.

Perfect for producers and bands

Scarlett 6i6 is perfect for producers, recording artists or small bands. With dual Focusrite mic preamps and a stereo line input – and a stereo S/PDIF input for digital sources – 6i6 is great for recording vocals, guitar and keyboards simultaneously. The four balanced outputs support up to two sets of stereo monitors, while two built-in headphone outputs with separate volume controls allow multiple recording artists to listen to the mixes they need to get the best performance – all with the lowest latency in the business. The inputs and outputs feature precision 24-bit Focusrite conversion at up to 96 kHz in order to get the most accurate signal possible into and out of your computer.

Hardware features

The outer case is a tough aluminium extrusion, which protects the components inside and minimises electrical noise. There is a large main monitor control knob alongside dedicated gain knobs for each mic input, each with two-colour ‘gain halos’ which light up green to indicate that sound is detected, and red if the level is too high. Both mic inputs can be switched between instrument, line and microphone, and a pad can be switched-in to handle high-level inputs.

Included software

Scarlett 6i6 supports both Windows and Macintosh computers as well as the iPad (using an Apple camera Connection Kit - available separately from Apple) and comes with a bundle of included software. Scarlett MixControl is a software I/O routing control panel, also allowing access to additional hardware features. 6i6 also comes with Ableton Live Lite: revolutionary production and performance software that records and plays back audio in a totally unique way. The Scarlett Plug-in Suite is also included, supplying EQ, compression and reverb to professionalise your mixes.

Polish Your Mix

All Scarlett audio interfaces include Ableton Live Lite recording software, plus two powerful software plug-ins: Red Plug-in Suite and Scarlett Plug-in Suite.

Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-In Suite

The Red Plug-in Suite accurately models our classic Red 2 equaliser and Red 3 compressor, to bring the sound of the famous original hardware to your music software.

Scarlett Plug-In Suite

Scarlett Suite is a professional plug-in suite that provides a definitive suite of compression, gating, EQ and reverb, for tracking and mixing your music.
