The Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 is a versatile, portable 6-in, 6-out, 24-bit/192kHz USB 2.0 audio interface with quality conversion, Scarlett range preamps with high-headroom DIs, ultra low latency, direct hardware monitoring, and a comprehensive software bundle

The Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 ups the ante from the popular Scarlett 2i4 interface with the ability to record six simultaneous inputs; four analog and two digital via S/PDIF. A small band could use its two natural-sounding preamps or high-headroom DIs to record vocals and guitar, along with a stereo keyboard via the rear-panel line inputs. Plus, if your band has a DJ, you can also perform along with a digital source thanks to the Scarlett 6i6 S/PDIF I/O. The Scarlett 6i6 features an amazingly low round-trip latency through the DAW that lets you track with plug-ins, plus hardware direct monitoring for zero latency recording. With Focusrite’s class-leading sound quality, and up to 24-bit/192kHz conversion, the Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 also has MIDI functionality and comes with a comprehensive software bundle, including an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First, Ableton Live Lite, the Focusrite Creative Pack, and more. Scarlett 6i6 is also compatible with all other major DAWs, on both Mac and PC.

Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 in one take:

  • Second-generation Scarlett sound quality and ultra low latency
  • Plenty of I/O and direct monitoring
  • Upgraded instrument inputs
  • Comprehensive software suite including Focusrite Control

INSIDE THE BOX—Focusrite Scarlett 6i6

The Focusrite Scarlett 6i6’s metal gain controls and a sleek red metal chassis are the hallmark of its roadworthy industrial design, built to go anywhere. Inside the box, the Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 features a number of technical innovations that put it at the head of the class. An updated converter design provides a wide dynamic range and sample rates up to 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution audio. Thanks to its innovative driver and conversion design, Scarlett offers a round-trip latency as low as 2.74ms (depending on DAW and software settings*). With Scarlett 6i6, you can work entirely in your DAW for overdubs and playback, and track in real time with plug-ins, without the need for outboard DSP, or disabling effects to save RAM when you track. Along with comfort effects, you can perform to a cue mix that sounds the way you want the final mix to sound.

To ensure a long recording life, the Scarlett 6i6 has circuitry on the inputs and outputs to protect against unwanted power surges, such as phantom power accidentally being plugged into the outputs, or shorted inputs with phantom power. The 6i6’s gain controls have an evenly distributed gain curve that makes it easier to set input levels with greater accuracy. Additionally, the Scarlett 6i6 adds a -10dB pad to each preamp to tame exceptionally hot signals coming in.

Plenty of I/O and direct monitoring

 Two Scarlett mic preamps with combo jacks, line level inputs, and high-headroom instrument inputs let you record any combination of instruments or vocals. You can connect keyboards, drum machines, or mixers into two additional line inputs on the rear panel, plus, you can connect any equipment with S/PDIF outputs to record six simultaneous channels at once. Two headphone outputs let you send individual headphone mixes to two artists, or an engineer and artist, while four balanced jack outputs let you connect to both studio monitors and outboard gear. With MIDI In and Out, you can also integrate hardware synths with your DAW.

The outputs can be connected to amplifiers and speakers, powered monitors, headphones, an audio mixer, or any other analog or digital audio equipment. Although all inputs and outputs on the Scarlett 6i6 are routed directly to and from your DAW for recording and playback, Focusrite Control also allows you to route input signals internally within the device to the outputs so that you can monitor the audio signals before they arrive at your DAW.

Upgraded DI performance

The Scarlet 6i6, has instrument inputs designed with guitarists in mind. They provide an additional 8dB headroom over other direct instrument inputs, which let you use guitars with the highest-output active pickups without clipping or unwanted distortion. The Scarlett range preamps are clean, transparent, and accurate, thanks to Focusrite’s 30-plus years of experience in preamp design, starting with the famed ISA modules built for Sir George Martin’s AIR studios. The Scarlett preamp has 50dB gain, which makes it very mic-friendly. (While 60-70dB gain is recommended for ribbon mics, some modern designs can perform quite well with 50dB.)

Comprehensive software suite included

The Scarlett 6i6 interface is compatible with Focusrite Control software application, which lets you control various hardware features, set up monitor mixes, and configure routings. To let you compose, record, mix, and export your music right out of the box, the Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 comes with time-unlimited versions of industry-standard music software, including Ableton Live Lite, Pro Tools | First, and the Focusrite Creative Pack, which features 12 additional plug-ins including the Eleven Lite for real life guitar amp emulations and Black Op for iconic distortions and overdrives. You also get Softube’s Time and Tone bundle, the Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite, Novation’s Bass Station Virtual synthesizer and 2GB of Loopmasters samples.
