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.
As well as the new Scarlett features, you’ll also get a selection of excellent software, so you can get creative right out the box:
