Ideal for multi-instrumentalists, producers and small bands
Our latest generation 6-in, 6-out USB audio interface is perfect for anybody who wants more than two analogue inputs: multi-instrumentalists, producers, recording artists, and small bands who want to record vocals, guitar and keyboards simultaneously. It gives you four analogue inputs with two Scarlett mic preamps, four analogue outputs and two separate headphone outputs, so you can give different headphone mixes to different artists, or an engineer and an artist.
Focusrite interfaces are perfect partners for Pro Tools, so Scarlett 6i6 comes with Pro Tools | First - Focusrite Creative Pack, as well as Ableton Live Lite recording software and a suite of software and samples, so you can start recording straight away. As you’d expect, it works with all major DAWs on Mac and PC.
What is latency?
Scarlett 2nd Generation interfaces have lower latency than any other USB audio interfaces. Take a look at this short video to see for yourself how latency can cause problems when recording, and find out what you can do to overcome it.
Sound Like You
Easily make studio-quality recordings that sound just the way you intended. Record anything you want using two combination inputs, with natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, 48v phantom power, line level inputs and newly-designed instrument inputs that can handle even the loudest guitar pick-ups.
Two separate headphone outputs let you give two artists (or an engineer and artist) their own headphones and monitoring settings.
You also get four balanced outputs so you can connect two sets of monitors, or send audio to an effects processor.
Real Time Effects
Don’t let interface latency ruin your performance. Scarlett 6i6’s new super-low latency lets you enhance your recording or performance in ways that are simply impossible with any other interface in this class, like enabling real-time guitar amp simulation and vocal reverb (subject to your software, settings and computer).
Start Recording Today
Compose, record, edit, save and export your music straight away, with time-unlimited versions of industry-standard music software: Ableton Live Lite and Pro Tools | First - Focusrite Creative Pack, which features 12 additional plug-ins including the Eleven Lite for real life guitar amp emulations and Black Op for iconic distortions and overdrives.
You also get Softube's Time and Tone bundle, the Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite, Novation's Bass Station Virtual synthesiser and 2GB of Loopmasters samples.
Scarlett 6i6 works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC, and all the included software is simple enough for beginners, yet sophisticated enough for advanced users.
At just over 1kg and protected by a solid metal case, Scarlett 6i6 is lightweight and compact, yet tough enough to take to your live shows for onstage recording or playback.
Designed For Guitarists
No matter how loud you play, or how hot your pick-ups, the newly-designed instrument inputs can handle it. You'll be free to play without the worry of unwanted distortion.
New Generation – Better In Every Way
The latest generation Scarlett 6i6 is packed full of upgrades. It operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz with new super-low latency* that lets you record and monitor with software effects in real time.
We completely redesigned the instrument inputs so they can handle even the hottest guitar pick-ups, and we’ve made it easier than ever to set your levels accurately. We’ve also built in new analogue protection circuitry across the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.
Intuitive Control Software
Scarlett 6i6 works with all major DAWs on Mac and PC, and comes with Focusrite Control: our brand new software mixer designed for easily configuring your monitoring and routing setups. Simple and intuitive to use, it gives you a traditional mixer workflow and immediate access to internal hardware functions.
Find the Perfect Level
Setting the perfect level couldn’t be easier, thanks to haloes around the gain knobs that glow a reassuring shade of green when you’re recording at the perfect volume. If they turn red, it’s time to back off.
The world is full of innovative software companies, creating a wealth of powerful plug-ins. With such variety, you’ll want to find exactly the right plug-ins for you, and use them in real time, thanks to Scarlett 2nd gen’s super-low latency environment. To help you on this mission, we’ve formed the ‘Plug-in Collective’, working with the very best to bring you exclusive plug-in offers and content every month.
