From Our Research Team:
Huge Focusrite Sound in a Small PackageThe Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 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 two additional line inputs and four line outputs. With MIDI I/O and two channels of S/PDIF I/O, the Scarlett 8i6 is a perfect foundation for home or project studios that may need to expand in the future.
To keep all those channels 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 8i6's outputs. Save your mixes for instant recall later on. Re-route your signal path without having to replug your whole studio. The Scarlett 8i6 was built with flexibility in mind.
Focusrite didn't stop at stellar sound quality and flexible routing with the Scarlett 8i6 - 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.

This product rocks!
by Keith Hinton from Prescott, ArizonaI realized I was going to be getting an awesome product from Sweetwater, but even I must admit, that I was blown away. The zero native ASIO latency that I've got out of this professional sound card ha... read more [+]s been quite amazing in deed! I'm glad that I can work on tracks now without laggy audio. Thanks, Sweetwater!

A Great Compact Converter
by Marvin Glenn from Redding, CAThe Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 I recently purchased is working perfectly and the sound is impeccable. I love the compactness in my studio and the 2 extra 1/4" TRS input jacks on the front panel help make... read more [+] the unit even more useful to me. I highly recommend the 8i6 and will be getting another one for my second home studio! close [-]

by Nick Perea from Richmond, VAExcellent preamps, good solid construction, nice look. I had an old interface called the presonus audiobox usb and it was giving me a lot of backround or hissing noise that would land in my recordings... read more [+], this one however is much quieter. I can even crank the gain up pretty high and still have a clear sound. Definitely an upgrade overall. I have only positive things to say about this product. close [-]

LIKES: I like the unit, all jacks are well marked for their purposes. Indicator lig... read more [+]hts are easy to read, software is easy to use, and displayed intuitively. Like the quick adjustments that can be made of the front of the unit, the virtual sound adjustments have a very nice warm sound to them. If you need cold and clean you can get that from this unit too, just turn off the extra effects.
Dislikes: Wish it had a slightly higher volume output. I am not going to blame the unit since it may simply be my audio card.
One final thought in closing- my wife and I fill up 4 input channels on this (and if you check there are only 4 line inputs) on the 8i6, definitely get the next larger unit! Those line inputs are what most people need, and the cost is minimally more for significantly more line inputs.
Otherwise it is a great unit, and I thank Dustin Keesbury for pointing me toward the Focusrite units. close [-]
by Lea from los angelesI've been producing through the computer for many years, but have always used outboard gear, like a mixer, etc. Going totally digital was a little scary, but I knew I had to do it to keep up. So, I go... read more [+]t this little interface, and am still on a learning curve. My problem is deciphering between what is going to actually be put on CD, and what I am hearing on the speakers. Going from one virtual mixer to the next is a little hard for my brain to envision. Turning virtual buttons on and off is nice, but I'd like to understand it better. It would help if I understood hardware sends and such. But, overall I like it. close [-]
