Focusrite believes in making music easy to make.

Everything we do at Focusrite challenges the way we make music today, we believe in thinking differently about music recording.

Focusrite does that by making music recording technology easier to learn and simpler to use. Got Thunderbolt? Looking for an audio interface? Then check out Focusrite’s Red range of Thunderbolt audio interfaces. Better, faster and easier, they feature specially-designed high-performance, low noise (-128dB EIN) mic pres with a new low distortion, ultra-linear design that guarantees a clean, open and transparent sound, giving accurate representation of the original performance. Plus they include the unique analogue “Air” effect, emulating the sound of Focusrite’s classic transformer-based mic preamps.

  • We understand dealing with cable admin, synchronisation and compatibility is not “making music”
  • We have learned to innovate new technology to deliver the best possible sound quality you seek and the depth of control you need.
  • Focusrite believes in “open ended” connectivity and workflow, we don't impose hardware or software boundaries that limit what you can and can’t do.
