Focusrite Scarlett 18i20

Handle Anything That Comes Your Way

The latest generation 18-in, 20-out USB audio interface can handle just about anything your band or studio can throw at it. Beautiful and rack mountable, it gives you loads of I/O, pristine sound quality, separate stereo headphone mixes, extensive expansion options and round-trip latency as low as 2.74ms, all in a 1U space.


Inputs Your Studio Deserves

Scarlett 18i20 puts eight natural-sounding combination inputs at your disposal. We put two on the front, where you need them most, with newly designed instrument inputs that can handle even the hottest signals. We put six more on the back, so you can leave your mics, synths, keyboards, mixers and effects processors permanently plugged in and ready to go. If that isn’t enough for you, connect an eight-channel mic pre like the Scarlett OctoPre to the ADAT input for a total of 16 analogue inputs. Add the two channels of digital audio via S/PDIF and 16 channels of MIDI, and you can record just about anything you want.

World Famous Preamps

All eight analogue inputs feature pristine and natural sounding Scarlett preamps, backed by 30 years of design experience and found in the world’s top studios. These guarantee exceptional headroom, plenty of clean gain, low noise, minimal distortion and a dynamic range that is unrivalled in this class.

Create Separate Monitor Mixes

As well as eight balanced analogue line outputs, Scarlett 18i20 gives you two independent stereo headphone outputs so you can give engineer and artist their own separate, fully-customised mixes. Many Scarlett owners don't have the ability to mix at loud levels late at night, and instead rely on headphones - as well as using headphones to hear all the detail in the mix. So we've given the headphone outputs in the next-generation Scarlett range plenty of power so they'll drive high-quality headphones with more than enough volume - while delivering high-quality sound so you can hear what's really going down.

Designed for Guitarists

Many Scarlett users are musicians, and in designing the new generation of Scarlett interfaces we paid special attention to the instrument input. This has its own unbalanced path, which maximises the headroom. In addition, the supply voltages have been increased to the instrument input circuitry, and the high impedance input buffer (a high input impedance preserves the top end of the sound of a guitar) has been reconfigured. Combined, these factors have added a significant additional 8dB of headroom to the instrument input. At the same time, the widely-praised clean, natural sound of the Scarlett mic preamp is unchanged. Also redesigned are the input level controls, which feature a unique, specially-designed potentiometer whose value changes in a much smoother way than most level controls you'll have tried. Instead of the signal increasing slowly as you turn the knob up and then suddenly getting much louder much more quickly as you reach the end of the travel, the new Scarlett level control provides smoothly controlled, evenly distributed gain that makes it easier to set input levels with greater accuracy.

Super-low latency for simpler, more effective recording

Latency is the time it takes for a signal to get through a digital system. Most commonly, the kind of latency you're going to be most concerned about is "round-trip latency". This is the time it takes for a signal to go into your interface, from there to the computer and through your DAW software, then back out to monitor through the interface again. Traditionally, round-trip latency has been so long that it has been impossible to monitor overdubs, for example, through the DAW - the delay is long enough to be musically off-putting. As a result, you've had to use so-called "zero-latency monitoring" (that's simply listening to the input, not through the DAW). But that means you can't use your DAW plug-ins - you've either needed special outboard DSP, with its own plug-ins, or go without. Now, thanks to innovative driver and conversion design, Scarlett offers you round-trip latency as low as 2.74ms*. Suddenly you can work entirely within your DAW for both overdubs and playback, using your favourite plug-ins and virtual instruments, and listen to them as you record. You don't need outboard DSP because your computer is more than powerful enough to run all the plug-ins you want. There's no need for special mixes for overdubbing - you can do your overdubs in mix mode through the DAW, saving time and effort - and with a more enveloping sound to play to. And at the same time, you'll enjoy the best possible performance environment with 'comfort reverb' on their vocals and other effects.
