Sitting on the desks of more producers than any other, the Scarlett range of audio interfaces means studio quality sound for more music making machines than any other. 8i6, with its dual mic-pres, fixed-line I/O and MIDI, gives you just the right connectivity to easily bring your hardware music making setup into the computer world.

✔ Six balanced line inputs, for connecting synths or other line-level audio, and four balanced outputs, for monitoring and effects sends

✔ Two of the best performing Scarlett mic preamps the range has ever heard – now with Air – for recording vocals

✔ Loopback, for grabbing a stereo feed of any combination of hardware inputs and software playback, no cables needed, for simple sampling, streaming or podcasting
