Focusrite Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen USB Audio Interface

Focusrite's most affordable interface, the Scarlett Solo is perfect for singer-songwriters! Start recording with a Scarlett mic preamp and instrument input.

The simplest model in the range, the third-generation Focusrite Scarlett Solo provides singer-songwriters with a reassuringly easy recording process. Equipped with high performance 24-bit/192kHz AD-DA converters, Scarlett guarantees the same professional sound quality throughout the third-generation range.

High-Quality Inputs

Its features include a single upgraded third-generation Scarlett mic preamp: with a switchable Air setting to reproduce the Air effect of Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp, giving your vocal recordings a brighter and more open sound.

The high impedance, high-headroom instrument input allows you to record guitar or bass without any clipping or unwanted distortion, while Gain Halo metering makes it easy for you to set the input level. And Scarlett Solo's balanced outputs are hum-free when connecting studio monitors with balanced inputs, so you'll always have pristine audio playback.

Ready to Go

Scarlett Solo is designed to stand up to days on the road and connects straight to your Mac or PC via USB cable, with no external power required. It comes with all the software tools you need to get started, including two comprehensive digital audio workstations.

"Unstable review Revised"
Overall: 3 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
MY last review was about how the unit was unstable and crackled and popped, so i figured out how to fix that. 1. uninstall all the focusrite software and drivers " they are buggy" 2. just install the Asio4All default drivers from the Asio site... NOT FOCUSRITE! 3. Reboot and plug in the interface. the default asio will give you full functionality and your daw can change the bitrate. since this is a lower model you don't really loose anything except being able to change the color of the knobs. this unit literally has no features in the software anyway. "you can turn AIR on and off" that button is on the unit anyway. I hope this help out
