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.

Great products at great prices!

Dr P Triantaris4th Apr 2024

Excellent audio interface for a small-scale, home-based system. Very good native performance, can easily support the very demanding Hauptwerk pipe organ software without additional drivers, and provides very good output without distortion.

I have upgraded from my 10 year old m-audio fastrack which was making my pc blue screen. You can hear the difference in the sound quality, it sounds less digitally harsh and the air button is quite nice. The soundcard is in a metal casing so feels robust. The only issue, which i wish I'd researched before buying is, there's no button to mute or turn the speakers down or off for when you are using the microphone. The feature isn't even available on the software. So I have to physically pull the speaker cables out to record on the mic, which isn't not practical at all. As it was a feature on my old budget sound card it didn't even cross my mind that it would be a thing. Apart from that, it's a nice sound card and I guess is the right price for what it is.

Really simple to set up and as someone who is learning guitar allows me to play along to backing tracks. I know it is a great tool for recording but for my purposes it's easy and affordable.
