Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 3G USB Audio/MIDI Interface:
Built to deliver top-shelf sound in a desk-friendly and easy-to-use format for panel podcasters, producers, and small bands who need mix-minus functionality when taking calls, the third-generation Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 18×8 USB audio/MIDI interface lets artists and content creators score pro-level tone with no learning curve.
Equally capable for tracking vocals and instruments, the four improved Scarlett microphone preamps feature switchable phantom power for condenser mics, pads to prevent distortion on loud input signals, and a selectable-per-channel Air circuit, which adds clarity-enhancing brightness based on Focusrite’s legendary ISA preamplifier.
The first two XLR-1/4″ combo inputs are software-switchable to allow them to accept signal directly from electric instruments such as guitar and bass or from line-level sources such as stereo mixer outputs, while combo inputs 3-4 can handle signal from mic or line sources. The rear panel sports four additional fixed-level 1/4″ inputs to accommodate more line-level sources such as the outputs of external mic preamps.
Professional XLRF – XLRM Microphone Cable suitable for use with any XLR microphone or device.
