The Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 is a USB 2.0 audio interface with 6 inputs and 6 outputs, with connection for PC, Mac or iPad. Includes two Focusrite microphone preamplifiers, capable of delivering superior recordings of both microphones and instruments, directly on the computer or iPad (requires Apple Camera Connection Kit, not included)
The outer chassis is constructed of aluminum, which protects the internal components. It has a large control wheel for monitor control, along with two gain control potentiometers for the microphone inputs, with a gain halo that lights green to show that signal is being detected and in red if the level is too high. The two microphone inputs can be switched between instrument, line and microphone and have an attenuator to cut too high input levels.
Scarlett 6i6 includes Scarlett MixControl software, which is a control panel for the management of input and output routing, adding additional features to the device. It also includes Ableton Live Lite, a production and live application that can be used to record and play audio in a completely innovative way. Also included is the Scarlett Plug-in Suite, adding EQ, compression and reverb to give a more professional touch to your mixes.
