From Our Research Team:
Huge Channel Count in a Small PackageThe Focusrite Scarlett 18i6 gives you a ton of flexibility for a portable interface. Two vibrant Focusrite mic/instrument preamps are right on the front panel where you need them, while the back panel hosts a slew of extra I/O - up to 18-in/4-out simultaneously! With six additional line inputs around back, plus 8-channels of ADAT input and 2-channel S/PDIF I/O, the Scarlett 18i6 is a perfect foundation for home or project studios that may need to expand in the future.
To keep that high channel count under control, Focusrite includes their acclaimed MixControl software for ultimate flexibility. Create up to six separate mono mixes or three stereo mixes, each routable to any of the Scarlett 18i6's outputs. Save your mixes for instant recall later on. Re-route your signal path without having to replug your whole studio. The Scarlett 18i6 was built with flexibility in mind.
Focusrite didn't stop at stellar sound quality and flexible routing with the Scarlett 18i6 - you also get the Scarlett VST/AU/RTAS plug-in suite featuring Focusrite's acclaimed Scarlett compression, reverb, gating, and EQ! These plug-ins give you access to the vibe of classic Focusrite studio hardware with the flexibility of software processing. Factor in the included Ableton Live Lite 8, a ton of royalty-free loops and samples, and the free Novation Bass-station synthesizer, and you've got a complete music production suite that's ready to go whenever inspiration strikes.

A+ For this interface!
by Matt D. from Midland, MII've owned a few USB interfaces and have had mixed success. This interface, however, is consistent and sounds great! I've had no issues with drivers, no issues with the device dropping mid session, ... read more [+]and I'm using a fairly old computer to record! If you're looking for the best bang for your buck with the option to expand via ADAT i/o then look no further. Very pleased with my purchase. My only complaint is I wish there were a few sends for outboard gear and reamping, but I guess I can get creative with the monitor sends. close [-]

Finally, something that works

I got rid of the Tascam and used a Presonus Audiobox USB for awhile, which was better than the Tascam but still would have issues every now and then. I've had this for several weeks and haven't had a single issue. It installed very easily. The software mixer is very handy. Great product so far. close [-]

Not for Rookies.
by Jesse from FloridaDoes everything I hoped for. Almost no delay from real-time play to recording. Plenty of playback options, from interface, as well as the control pad in computer.

big Fan of Focusrite
by Scott D Giauque from Salt Lake City, UtahThis is my second Focusrite interface. just picked up a new laptop and it didn't have firewire so I looked at the Scarlett 18i6.

It has superior Pre's compared to other interfaces I have owned. I previously owned a MOTU 828 MK2 got burned and will never go back. This interface is perfect for portablility with my new core i7 lapop. and like it's firewire cousin it works flawlessly. My only wish for the future is that focusrite might develop a USB 3.0 interface someday. Just withing though. close [-]
