Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 6 In/6 Out USB 2.0 Audio Interface With Two Focusrite Mic Preamps
The Scarlett 6i6 is a 6 in/6 out audio interface that connects to your PC, Mac or iPad via USB 2.0. It has two award-winning Focusrite microphone preamplifiers, which deliver superb quality recordings from microphones and instruments, straight into your computer or iPad (Apple Camera Connection Kit required with iPad). Housed in an attractive anodized aluminum unibody chassis, the interface not only sounds fantastic but looks great too. And it's solid enough to withstand the impact sustained by a mobile recording rig.
Perfect for Producers and Bands
Scarlett 6i6 is perfect for producers, recording artists or small bands. Featuring two award-winning Focusrite mic preamps and a stereo line input, 6i6 is great for recording vocals, guitar and a stage piano simultaneously. With the four balanced outputs, connect up to two sets of stereo monitors, and use the S/PDIF I/O for connecting digital sources. There are also two built-in headphone outputs with separate volume controls so multiple recording artists can listen to the mixes they need to get the best take. The inputs and outputs feature precision 24 bit A-D, D-A conversion at up to 96KHz in order to get the most accurate signal possible into and out of your computer.
The outer case is a tough aluminum extrusion, which protects the components inside. There is a large main monitor control knob as well as two dedicated gain knobs for each mic input, each with two color '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 cope with high-level inputs.
6 Inputs and 6 Outputs
The Scarlett 6i6 features all of the analog and digital inputs you need for home multi-track recording. There is no need for breakout cables--every analog input and output has a dedicated socket. The Scarlett 6i6 also includes two headphone mixes so the engineer and the artist can both listen to the mix levels they need.
