Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 Gen2
Ideal for multi-instrumentalists, producers and small bands
Focusrite’s latest generation 6-in, 6-out USB audio interface is perfect for anybody who wants more than two analogue inputs: multi-instrumentalists, producers, recording artists, and small bands who want to record vocals, guitar and keyboards simultaneously. It gives you four analogue inputs with two Scarlett mic preamps, four analogue outputs and two separate headphone outputs, so you can give different headphone mixes to different artists, or an engineer and an artist.
Focusrite interfaces are perfect partners for Pro Tools, so Scarlett 6i6 comes with Pro Tools | First – Focusrite Creative Pack in the box, as well as Ableton Live Lite recording software and a suite of software and samples, so you can start recording straight away. As you’d expect, it works with all major DAWs on Mac and PC.

Sound Like You
Backed by 30 years of design experience, these two Scarlett preamps offer a pristine and natural sound, with 48V phantom power, superior linear gain, low noise, low distortion and dynamic range that is unrivalled in this class.
Two separate headphone outputs let you give two artists (or an engineer and artist) their own headphones and monitoring settings.
You also get four balanced outputs so you can connect two sets of monitors, or send audio to an effects processor.
Effects In Real Time
An unrivalled round-trip latency as low as 2.74ms* lets you do things that are simply impossible with most other USB interfaces (subject to your software, settings and computer). You can work entirely inside your DAW for both overdubbing and playback, and use your favourite plugins while recording – whether it’s reverb on a vocal, a guitar amp simulator, or even virtual instruments live on stage. You’ll also get the best out of vocal performances, by applying real-time comfort reverb to headphones.
Start Recording Today
Compose, record, edit, save and export your music straight away, with time-unlimited versions of industry-standard music software: Ableton Live Lite and Pro Tools | First – Focusrite Creative Pack, which features 12 additional plug-ins including the Eleven Lite for real life guitar amp emulations and Black Op for iconic distortions and overdrives.
You also get Softube’s Time and Tone bundle, the Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite, Novation’s Bass Station Virtual synthesiser and 2GB of Loopmasters samples.
Scarlett 6i6 works flawlessly with all major DAWs on Mac and PC, and all the software included is simple enough for beginners, yet sophisticated enough for advanced users.
At just over 1kg and protected by a solid metal case, Scarlett 6i6 is lightweight and compact, yet tough enough to take to your live shows for onstage recording or playback.
Designed for the Guitarist
We’ve redesigned the instrument inputs and given them plenty of extra headroom, so you can handle extreme levels without any unwanted clipping or distortion. If you’re recording extra loud instruments, you can also engage the 10dB pad in Focusrite Control software.
