Which Focusrite Scarlett USB audio interface should I get?

Published: Tue February 12, 2013  News Feed

Whatever your audio recording needs, there's a Focusrite Scarlett
interface for you

All you have to do is choose. If you want to record guitar with a simple and easy to use interface or need something rugged to carry with you the Scarlett range offers plenty of choice, some of the most striking and best looking audio interfaces around. Being Focusrite the preamps are naturally top quality but for those more interested in beat making and electronic production the Scarletts have some of the best AD/DA conversion at this price.
