The Scarlett 6i6 extends the popular Scarlett range of audio interfaces from Focusrite, each of which offers a series of high quality inputs and outputs for almost every recording requirement. The Scarlett 6i6 is a 6-in / 6-out audio interface that connects to your PC, Mac or iPad via USB 2.0. It has two award-winning Focusrite microphone preamplifiers, which deliver superb quality recordings from microphones and instruments, straight into your computer (Mac, PC) or iPad® (via Apple® Camera Connection Kit – not included).
Focusrite: 25 years of audio excellence
Focusrite was commissioned to make its first 'no-holds-barred' microphone preamps by Sir George Martin for his Air Studio facility in London. Over the following 25 years Focusrite designed some of the finest mic preamps in the music industry, and in recent years has developed a series of best-selling audio interfaces for people who really care about sound.
Perfect for recording artists, producers and bands
Scarlett 6i6 is perfect for producers, recording artists or small bands. In addition to two award-winning Focusrite mic preamps it features a stereo line input, making it possible to capture, for example, vocals, guitar and a digital piano at the same time. With the four balanced outputs, you can connect up to two sets of stereo monitors, and use the S/PDIF I/O for connecting digital sources. There are also two built-in headphone outputs with separate volume controls. The inputs and outputs feature precision 24bit A-D, D-A conversion at up to 96KHz in order to get the most accurate signal possible into and out of your computer or iOS device (via Apple® Camera Connection Kit – not included).
The outer case is a tough aluminium extrusion, which protects the components inside. There is a large main monitor control knob as well as two dedicated gain knobs for each mic input, each with two colour 'gain halos' which light up green to indicate that sound is detected, and red if the level is too high. Both mic inputs can be switched between instrument, line and microphone, and a pad can be switched-in to cope with high-level inputs. Each analogue input and output has its own dedicated socket.
Scarlett MixControl provides a DSP mixer with flexible routing capabilities, intuitive one-click presets, and lower than 1.4 ms latency. The Scarlett 6i6 also includes the Red Plug-in Suite, Ableton Live Lite, Loopmasters sample content and the Novation Bass Station analogue modelling synth plug-in.
Inside the box you'll find Ableton Live Lite 8, as well as Focusrite's Red plug-in suite.

Focusrite now include the Softube Time and Tone Pack with this interface as a free download.
Softube Time and Tone Pack is a unique plug-in bundle (valued at $198 / £129) which includes three of Softube's world class plug-ins: a reverb, a delay and a distortion. The Softube Time and Tone Pack includes the following three plug-ins:
A tasty echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modelled tube stages. Create anything from realistic room echoes to rockabilly style slapbacks—or take it all the way into dub reggae echo madness.
Add grit and warmth to any sound source with this modelled 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.
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.
