The Scarlett 6i6 continues the popular Scarlett range of high quality, but affordable audio interfaces from Focusrite. The Scarlett 6i6 is a 6-in, 6-out USB 2.0 audio interface that connects to your PC, Mac or iPad and has two award-winning Focusrite microphone preamplifiers, which delivers 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 Scarlett Plug-in Suite (Compression, Gating, EQ and Reverb for tracking and mixing), Ableton Live Lite, Loopmasters sample content and the Novation Bass Station analogue modelling synth plug-in.

Two headphone outputs with level controls
With two headphone mixes the engineer and the artist can both listen to the mix at the levels they need.
High quality 24bit/96KHz audio interfaces for Mac, PC and iPad

Unique gain halos for safeguarding your levels
Unique gain halo indicators make it clear when you have a good signal for recording. When the halos are green you have a good level, and when they turn red it means you need to turn the gain down.
