    Scarlett 18i20 3rd Generation Key Features

    • 18x20 simultaneous I/O with 2 preamps, MIDI I/O, ADAT I/O and S/PDIF I/O

    • USB-C connection for even lower latency (includes USB-C to USB-A cable)
    • 24-bit/192kHz AD-DA converters to guarantee the same clean sound
    • Latency so low you won’t even notice it
    • High-headroom instrument inputs to allow recording without any clipping/distortion
    • Focusrite’s gain Halo meters offer instant, simple level readings
    • Quick start tool for easy registration and driver setup

    Better Sound Than Ever

    UK manufacturer Focusrite has made world-class mic preamps for decades. The 3rd Generation’s mic pre is the best to ever feature in the Scarlett range. Expect a warm, dynamic response that’ll take care of any instrument with ease.

    The ‘Air’ mode, inspired by Focusrite’s legendary ISA preamp, adds a unique breathy detail to higher frequencies, perfect for injecting life into vocal recordings. Next up, 24-bit/192kHz converters offer unprecedented clarity for an interface at this price point.

    Intuitive, Professional, State-of-the-art

    One of the key upgrades for the 3rd Generation is the addition of USB-C connectivity. This reversible connection allows faster data transfer, easier connection and can be flipped – no more plugging in upside-down. And thanks to the USB-C’s inherent low latency, you can easily record and monitor everything in real time with many of your favourite plug-ins in place.

    The 3rd Gen’s inputs offer impressive headroom, making recording line-level instruments cleaner and easier than ever before. Balanced TRS outputs also eliminate speaker hum, while Focusrite’s iconic gain halos light up to indicate input levels, making it easy to get distortion-free recordings.

    Easy to use and well designed

    Trusted Customer7th May 2021

    I needed more inputs onto my RME interface which I had been using for years and decided to give the Focusrite 18i20 3rd gen and an OctoPre via ADAT a try. Wow ! Super easy setup and I honestly expected the Focusrite nit to sound quite as good as the much more expensive RME but I was really surprised with the quality of the pre amps and DAC on the Focusrite kit. The software control is very flexible and makes hooking up external fx and other outboard a breeze with no latency issues. I can recommend this combo to anyone looking for a high quality 16 input interface .

    Works perfectly well from my limited testing so far. Works without drivers on Mac, although installing the dedicated software allow further controls and customisation of routing and some features.
