About this deal

The high-impedance, high-headroom instrument inputs are great for recording guitar or bass without clipping, while our iconic Gain Halos make it easy to set input levels fast.

Scarlett Audio Interfaces | Focusrite

Founded in 1985 by Rupert Neve, Focusrite quickly made a name for itself with high-quality analogue consoles.Lightning to USB-C adaptor cables are not available from Apple, and we would advise against purchasing third-party cables as they are unlikely to work. Anyway, as your question relates to purely home studio mixing, in-the-box, and working with soft synths, the short answer is that yes, the Scarletts (any of the generations) will be more than enough to cater for your larger instrument ensemble needs.

I put the 1/4-inch input’s gain control to the test by tracking a Carvin Jason Becker guitar with high-output active pickups as well as an old Applause acoustic-electric with a rather anemic piezo, and I had no problems matching levels.Like the 4i4, it features two combined instrument and mic inputs, dual headphone outs, gain halos, S/PDIF I/Os, MIDI Input and Output, plus a further four inputs for line-level instruments — 8-in 6-out makes this an excellent audio interface for the hardware-based musician. The Dynamic Range figure is around 110dB across the 3rd gen series for line, mic and instrument inputs (an improvement on the 2nd gen’s 106-109dB). The overall Gain Range has also been improved from 50dB to 56dB, not to mention high headroom instrument inputs, additional line-level inputs for flexible recording setups and routing, plus balanced TRS outputs to eliminate speaker hum and interference. Two inputs and two outputs; one 3rd Generation mic pre, one switchable line/inst input and balanced outputs. If you require a USB hub to connect your interface, we recommend using a powered USB hub with a mains power source.
