6x6 USB 2.0 audio interface with four Focusrite preamps.

The Scarlett 6i6 from Focusrite features two of their award-winning preamps that are poised and ready to deliver exceptional quality recordings from multiple sources straight to your computer or iPad (Apple Camera Connection Kit required). The 6i6 has six inputs and six outputs, housed in a tough aluminum enclosure with monitor control and gain knobs to keep your signals in check.

Focusrite: Over 25 years of audio excellence
Focusrite was commissioned to make its first ‘no-holds-barred' microphone preamps by Sir George Martin for his Air Studio facility in London. Over the following 25 years Focusrite designed some of the finest mic preamps in the music industry, and in recent years has developed a series of best-selling audio interfaces for people who really care about sound.

Perfect for producers and bands
Scarlett 6i6 is perfect for producers, recording artists or small bands. Featuring two award-winning Focusrite mic preamps and a stereo line input, 6i6 is great for recording vocals, guitar and a stage piano simultaneously. With the four balanced outputs, connect up to two sets of stereo monitors, and use the S/PDIF I/O for connecting digital sources. There are also two built-in headphone outputs with separate volume controls so multiple recording artists can listen to the mixes they need to get the best take. The inputs and outputs feature precision 24 bit A-D, D-A conversion at up to 96KHz in order to get the most accurate signal possible into and out of your computer.

Hardware features
The outer case is a tough aluminium extrusion, which protects the components inside. There is a large main monitor control knob as well as two dedicated gain knobs for each mic input, each with two colour ‘gain halos' which light up green to indicate that sound is detected, and red if the level is too high. Both mic inputs can be switched between instrument, line and microphone, and a pad can switched-in to cope with high-level inputs.

Included software
Scarlett 6i6 works with Mac, PC and iPad (using an Apple camera Connection Kit - available separately from Apple). It comes with a bundle of included software. Scarlett MixControl is a software control panel for routing the inputs and outputs, and accessing additional features on the hardware. It also comes with Ableton Live Lite: revolutionary production and performance software that can be used to record and playback audio in a totally unique way. The Scarlett Plug-in Suite is also included, supplying EQ, compression and reverb to professionalise your mixes.

Note: Includes the Focusrite Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-In Suite (AAX/AU/VST) upon registration of interface. Accurately modeled on the classic Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor, the Red plug-ins let you exploit the sound of the hardware originals, conveniently from within Pro Tools (10 and above) and other audio software.

    As reviewed by Aran Arms on 5/10/2014

    I bought this unit to replace my previous interface that decided to take a dive. It comes with lots of free content, however the driver and the mix software(which is great and easy to use) that is shipped with it is outdated. Never fear, registering your product on is simple and painless if you can follow simple instruction. I was registered in 5 minutes, with the most up to date software and driver. Do NOT listen to the other review that is dogging this product. Focusrite has outstanding pre's and they have been put to use since I bought this and sound great. You will NOT regret purchasing this.

  • Best interface for under 300

    As reviewed by Nathan on 8/19/2014

    I walked in to guitar center looking to upgrade from my 2i2 because It's more for musicians on the road, on a budget or just in need of something cheap to power monitors, I needed more ins and outs for hardware like my ISA one, electronic drum kit and Roland Jupiter 50, There were a lot of nice audio interfaces but there was no contest for something in this price range, I had purchased and went home, when I had taken it out of the box it was small yet rugged and sturdy, the red finish is beautiful and feels nice, the knobs turn smoothly and feel well built and not flimsy at all, I had hooked everything up successfully and after a month still no issues and runs smoothly, there is not one complaint from me about the hardware but the mixcontrol software can be a pain to learn at first but other then that I highly recommend this, you will not be sorry.

  • Nice Features but Unreliable

    As reviewed by Steven on 2/21/2015

    This interface began to require frequent power cycles after a couple months of use. It would work fine, than show no signal on any inputs until a hard power off/power on cycle. After 13 months of use, it has failed completely.
