The Focusrite 18i20 brings the recording performance of 8 award-winning Focusrite mic preamps and combines them with a high-quality 24-bit/96kHz USB 2.0 interface that’s compatible with Mac, Windows, and iOS platforms, which means legendary recording performance on the iPad (Apple Camera Connection Kit required). Focusrite’s mic preamps are found in the world’s top studios and give the 18i20 an unequalled level of performance, with low noise, minimal distortion and enormous dynamic range. The Scarlett preamps offer exceptional headroom, and two front-panel inputs also offer 10dB pad buttons to handle the highest-level inputs without distortion.

Comprehensive inputs/outputs
With 18 inputs and 20 outputs, Scarlett 18i20 includes enough I/O to handle the vast majority of day-to-day studio tasks at maximum quality, with maximum flexibility. Scarlett 18i20 features six combo XLR/jack mic/line inputs plus two front-panel XLR/jack mic/line/instrument inputs with 10dB pad buttons, 10 analogue line outputs, two independent headphone outputs on the front panel, and ADAT and S/PDIF digital I/O, plus MIDI I/O and Word Clock out for digital synchronization when required.

The ADAT interface can be used to bring in digital sources or to add extra preamps such as Focusrite’s OctoPre Mk II, bringing the mic pre complement to 16 channels, ideal for recording a complete band and minimizing overdubs.


High channel count and Focusrite quality – now on USB 2.0 and iOS
Scarlett 18i20 is the USB complement of the tried and tested Saffire PRO 40 Firewire interface. Suitable for Windows, Mac and even iOS (with the Camera Connection Kit*) platforms, Scarlett 18i20’s USB 2.0 connection suits almost any computer, helping you build a setup in which external storage and audio interfaces do not have to share the same computer bus (recommended for the best performance) – if you have Firewire drives, for example, a USB audio interface is the best choice.

Comprehensive bundle of included software
Comes with Ableton Live Lite – ground-breaking production and performance software, Scarlett Plug-in Suite – EQ, compression, gating and reverb, Novation Bass Station - software model of the classic Novation analogue mono-synth, and 1GB of Loopmasters samples.

Softube Time and Tone Bundle

 


 

In addition to the Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-in Suite, this interface includes the Softube Time and Tone Pack. This is a unique plug-in bundle, comprised of Softube's world class TSAR-1R reverb, Tube Delay, and Saturation Knob.

 


 

TSAR-1R: Add space, depth and width to your sound—TSAR-1R is a reverb plug-in with world class sound

 

and extreme ease of use. With a single slider, you can take TSAR-1R from realistic and three-dimensional

 

rooms to dramatic and dreamlike halls. 

 

 

 

Tube Delay: A tasty echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modeled tube stages.

 

Create anything from realistic room echoes to rockabilly style slapbacks—or take it all the way into dub

 

reggae echo madness.

 

 

 

Saturation Knob: Add grit and warmth to any sound source with this modeled output distortion unit. Use

 

it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy your drum loop.

 

Simply turn up the knob to add saturation, and use the three-position switch to alter the distortion character.
