About this deal

Means you can create one "custom mix" aka virtual mixer (with whichever physical or software inputs you like) and then assign this one mix output it to whichever outputs you like but there's only ONE such stereo mix. Works without drivers on Mac, although installing the dedicated software allow further controls and customisation of routing and some features.

All you have to do is find preferences and there is usually an audio selector to choose the Focusrite interface and its ASIO driver. Also, the i20 instrument input has massively increased headroom, thanks to the re-engineered instrument input so that you can handle your hot guitar pick-ups with more control. Eight inputs and ten outputs; eight 3rd Generation mic pres, two Hi-Z instrument inputs, and ten balanced outputs plus ADAT input and output for up to eight more channels each way.I'm running a MIDI keyboard, electric guitar AND an XLR microphone into this device and it handles it wonderfully with aplomb. Your Scarlett 18i20 comes with all the software tools you need to get started: Ableton® Live Lite™; Softube's Time and Tone Bundle; Focusrite's Red Plug-in Suite; a choice of one of four of XLN Audio's Addictive Keys. Balanced TRS outputs also eliminate speaker hum, while Focusrite’s iconic gain halos light up to indicate input levels, making it easy to get distortion-free recordings. Once I had downloaded the 32bit version, I was able to run the Korg Legacy Pack from within Ableton, alongside the 32bit version of GuitarRig 5.

We were amongst the first dedicated companies to offer the type of cutting edge technology that now grace recording studios the world over, and 25 years on, we have. Raised a support issue with the plugin provider using Gobbler but didn't get anything helpful so don't know what I did wrong. All the tools you need to start recording right, now – In the form of Hitmaker Expansion, we’ve partnered with our favourite industry partners to provide you with plenty of sound content and software so that you can create and record music right away. Below is a complete list of what is now included with any sale of a Focusrite Scarlett product, including the new Hitmaker Expansion. A more even gain structure is a new feature, thanks to the latest Scarlett Mic preamps, thus making it easier to set your levels more accurately.With 100 credits per month added to your account, you can grab samples of thousands of artists and millions of sounds. Latency is one of the most common problems when recording, so the USB drivers have been reworked once again. If you have any other questions, I have been using the first gen 18i20 for about 6 years now and the 2nd gen for a year. As a side note I have tested a Focusrite 18i20 2nd gen and it works well with USB input but I always got crackling when I tried to use the SPDIF input with CamillaDSP regardless of clock source.

It means that you can actually set this interface up in such way that when PC is off Scarlett 18i20 can behave as pass-through device passing any line-in of your choice (eg. Focusrite Control makes it simple to route your audio and cue mix, loopback and monitor mixes, from your Mac®, PC, iPad®, iPhone® or iPod touch®. What's special is that an optional Air mode can be added to reproduce the Air effect of the original ISA mic preamp, if required. Four monitor outputs with anti-thump technology and speaker switching, and onboard talkback functionality with built-in, front panel talkback mic. It is included with the Scarlett USB audio interfaces, Clarett Thunderbolt™ and Clarett USB Focusrite ranges.Equipped With improved A-D and D-A conversion, the Scarlett 18i20 gives you great sounding 24-bit/192kHz while both recording and mixing.
