Scarlett 6i6

Ideal for multi-instrumentalists, producers and small bands

Our latest generation 6-in, 6-out USB audio interface is perfect for anybody who wants more than two analogue inputs: multi-instrumentalists, producers, recording artists, and small bands who want to record vocals, guitar and keyboards simultaneously. It gives you four analogue inputs with two Scarlett mic preamps, four analogue outputs and two separate headphone outputs, so you can give different headphone mixes to different artists, or an engineer and an artist.

Guitar and Microphone

Sound Like You

Backed by 30 years of design experience, these two Scarlett preamps offer a pristine and natural sound, with 48V phantom power, superior linear gain, low noise, low distortion and dynamic range that is unrivalled in this class.

Be Ready For Anything

Need to record vocals, guitars and bass together? You need Scarlett 18i8. It gives you twice as many preamps as Scarlett 6i6 and 18 separate inputs, so you can be ready for anything.

Scarlett 6i6 Headphone Outputs

Separate Headphones

Two separate headphone outputs let you give two artists (or an engineer and artist) their own headphones and monitoring settings.

You also get four balanced outputs so you can connect two sets of monitors, or send audio to an effects processor.

Effects In Real Time

An unrivalled round-trip latency as low as 2.74ms* lets you do things that are simply impossible with most other USB interfaces (subject to your software, settings and computer). You can work entirely inside your DAW for both overdubbing and playback, and use your favourite plugins while recording – whether it’s reverb on a vocal, a guitar amp simulator, or even virtual instruments live on stage. You’ll also get the best out of vocal performances, by applying real-time comfort reverb to headphones.

Focusrite Creative Pack

Record Live?

At just over 1kg and protected by a solid metal case, Scarlett 6i6 is lightweight and compact, yet tough enough to take to your live shows for onstage recording or playback.

Live Recording and Playback

Designed for the Guitarist

We’ve redesigned the instrument inputs and given them plenty of extra headroom, so you can handle extreme levels without any unwanted clipping or distortion. If you’re recording extra loud instruments, you can also engage the 10dB pad in Focusrite Control software.

New Generation – Better In Every Way

The latest generation Scarlett 6i6 is packed full of upgrades. It operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz with new super-low latency* that lets you record and monitor with software effects in real time.

We completely redesigned the instrument inputs so they can handle even the hottest guitar pick-ups, and we’ve made it easier than ever to set your levels accurately. We’ve also built in new analogue protection circuitry across the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.

*Super-low latency depends on your choice of software, settings and computer.

Used By the Best

What do Sam Smith, Foo Fighters and Massive Attack have in common? Not a lot, admittedly, but they all use Focusrite equipment because they agree with us that sound is everything.

Find the Perfect Level

Setting the perfect level couldn’t be easier, thanks to haloes around the gain knobs that glow a reassuring shade of green when you’re recording at the perfect volume. If they turn red, it’s time to back off.
