Andy Davies
The purchase process via the online store was seamless. Upon arrival the unit (Scarlett 18i20) was perfectly packaged, beautifully designed, installation and activation was a breeze. So far in use the unit is doing great, the control software is very intuitive. Also includes a wealth of bundled software. What's not to like!

I've only had this unit for less than 24 hours, so just beginning to play with it. I have been very impressed how quickly Focusrite shipped it to my door - I purchased it on Sunday night and I had it by Thursday (England to Canada). In addition, it was cheaper (and free shipping) to buy direct from Focusrite. Previously I had purchased a Scarlett 18i8, and upgraded to this unit as I needed more XLR inputs and opportunity to expand. Preamps sound good (as usual), and I did notice a difference in clarity in the headphone amplifiers. I'm using a set of AKG Q701s that are very good, and very clear, but I was surprised to hear more clarity out of the new unit. Excited to start tracking with it! Plus if you choose me for the discount draw, then I can go back and buy the OctoPre to go with this, in a couple of weeks. =)

I haven’t received it yet; and I will need to use it for a few weeks before I can comment. I was very happy with my sapphire though.

An excellent interface. The pre's sound fantastic and I love the routing options. Everyone complains about Focusrite control, but it isn't actually that bad!

Julian N-L
Great product. Works like a charm right out of the box. Loved that it came with pro tools first and a bunch of plug ins. Happy to add this to my home studio!!
Raphael Rioux
When I received my focusrite, I had 2 choices of AC plug, one for France and one for England. You sell in america, we have to consider that we are on the 120 volts and not on the 220 volts.
Evan Lowry
Exactly as described. Great interface for the price, and loaded with features.
David Theriault

Plug-in Collective:
  • Register a Focusrite device before the 7th November to receive UJam's Virtual Guitarist Iron plug-in for free, plus a 30% discount on the Guitarists-Bundle.
Eight natural-sounding combination input Scarlett mic preamps deliver exceptional headroom, loads of linear clean gain, low noise and minimal distortion. The two inputs on the front panel feature newly-designed instrument inputs with extended headroom. The ADAT expansion ports allow you to add an extra eight analogue inputs and outputs, particularly useful for anyone who wants to record higher channel counts and integrate lots of outboard gear
When it comes to outputs, Scarlett 18i20 delivers full routing and monitoring flexibility. There are two dedicated TRS jack outputs for studio monitors featuring anti-thump circuitry, plus eight more analogue jack outputs, two stereo pairs providing mirrored independent headphone outputs on the front panel. With MIDI connectivity, you can also integrate your favourite hardware synths with your DAW. Wordclock Out is also on hand for sync'ing to external device
New Generation - Better in every way

The second generation Scarlett range is packed full of upgrades. The lowest roundtrip latency in its class (2.74ms*) brings confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. New metal gain controls and a sleeker red metal chassis reassure you of its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere. The Scarlett range also now operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz, and the input channels have evolved too. The latest Scarlett mic preamp features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned with increased headroom to handle seriously hot guitar pick-ups. Finally, Focusrite have provided analogue protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, guarding your interface against unwanted power surges.
