Designed for guitar

Our instrument inputs switch you into Hi Z (high impedance) mode — designed to handle the hottest pickups without clipping or creating unwanted distortion.

Set your level with confidence, or let your Scarlett do it for you

Scarlett 4th Gen (excluding Scarlett Solo) features Auto Gain and Clip Safe, automatically tweaking the gain if you’re in danger of clipping. On Scarlett Solo levels are adjusted manually with Dynamic Gain Halos — if you’re seeing red, just dial yourself back into the green and you’re good to go.
