One of the most popular brands in today’s pro audio market, Focusrite specializes in mic preamps, audio interfaces, channel strips, consoles and software.
When Beatles producer Sir George Martin sought a premium, no-compromise microphone preamp in 1985, he enlisted the help of Rupert Neve—and so, Focusrite was born. The Input Signal Amplifier (ISA) series resulted from this legendary collaboration, and remains one of the most popular mic preamps to this day.
A major shift in the company occurred when Phil Dudderidge purchased Focusrite’s assets in 1989. The company had already released the Forté console—the highest-quality console available at the time—and Dudderidge oversaw the release of the Studio console in 1990, in addition to Focusrite’s acclaimed Red Range of audio products.
For any recording artist, especially in today’s music scene, a quality audio interface is a critical piece of gear. In 2000, Focusrite released the first of its award-winning audio interfaces. Due to the acclaim and positive reception of these products, as well as the demand in today’s marketplace, audio interfaces are now the core area of focus and development for the company.
From professional-grade microphone preamps, audio interfaces and even entire recording bundles, Focusrite has the quality gear you deserve.
