a breeze. Alongside two award-winning Focusrite preamps, six high-quality analogue
inputs allow you to simultaneously record guitar, bass

the drums at the same time.

of flexibility, the MixControl software enables you to create six separate mixes with ultra-low-latency
. Route any combination of input signals and sequencer
outputs to any of the Scarlett 18i6 outputs. Intuitive one-click configurations help you track
, monitor and mix as quickly as possible.
