Focusrite Scarlett Fever Competition

Show full description »

Eight Focusrite preamps with metering, 20 outputs, ADAT and near zero latency monitoring all over USB, making for one of the best sounding audio interfaces! Throw in a great selection of software and you have a complete studio recording package.

The Scarlett 18i20 has been designed to meet the needs of today’s modern home and project studios - with enough I/O to track drums in one session, and enough professional features to DI guitars or record vocals in the next.

Everything you need in one package

With 18 inputs and 20 outputs in total, Scarlett 18i20 gives you eight critically acclaimed Focusrite microphone preamps with switchable phantom power. Precision 24-bit/96kHz A-D/D-A converters deliver exceptional dynamic range to ensure pristine recordings. The analogue mic/line inputs are fitted with combination XLR/jack input sockets, and connections for channels 1+ 2 are on the front panel and offer additional Hi-Z instrument modes and a switchable 10dB pad. An additional eight channels of digital I/O (four channels at 88.2/96kHz) are provided via ADAT lightpipe, with S/PDIF providing an additional stereo digital input and output.

Digital Connectivity

By using the Scarlett 18i20's ADAT port, users can connect additional preamps, like the OctoPre MkII, to boost the preamp count to 16 - enough to record an entire band simultaneously and run a small studio! Dual independent headphone outputs let you set up separate mixes for the engineer and the artist, while a dedicated monitor section, with dim and mute buttons, provides comprehensive control over your studio monitors.

Your audio is in safe hands with eight of Focusrite's award-winning preamps and pristine analogue to digital and digital to analogue converters. With 108dB dynamic range and the latest in USB 2.0 audio streaming technology, recording studio channel counts and quality comes to your USB 2.0 or USB 3 port, with both Mac and PC support and support for all major DAWs.

High-headroom preamps and 10dB pads available on inputs 1 and 2 mean that the Scarlett 18i20 will perform where others may fall. The included Scarlett Mix Control provides comprehensive routing options for low-latency monitoring. Includes Scarlett VST/AU/RTAS Plug-in Suite (compression, gating, EQ and reverb for tracking and mixing).

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region
