User manual for the Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 USB 2.0 Audio Interface SCARLETT-18I8
The user manual for the Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 USB 2.0 Audio Interface SCARLETT-18I8 provides
necessary instructions for the proper use of the product Pro Audio - Computer Audio - Audio Interfaces & Systems.
The Scarlett 18i8 USB 2.0 Audio Interface from Focusrite features 18 inputs and 8 outputs, including 4 front-panel microphone preamps on XLR/TRS combo inputs. Each of the microphone inputs doubles as a line input; the first two also feature switchable Hi-Z instrument inputs. The 18i8 is compatible with Mac, PC, and iPad - requires an Apple Camera Connection Kit, sold separately.
The Scarlett 18i8 is capable of resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz and features a wide range of connectivity. Its 4 front microphone inputs can provide up to 60 dB of gain and have switchable Phantom power. The rear panel has 4 additional 1/4" TRS line inputs as well as an 8-channel ADAT Lightpipe connection and a stereo S/PDIF input. The 18i8 also provides MIDI input and output jacks.
The Scarlett 18i8 has left and right 1/4" TRS monitor outputs, a stereo S/PDIF output, and two independent headphone outputs. It is housed in a rugged and compact unibody metal case to withstand constant use.
The Focusrite Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-In Suite (AAX, Audio Units, VST) delivers accurately modeled plug-ins based on the classic Focusrite Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor hardware. The plug-ins allow for conveniently exploring the sound of the hardware originals from within Pro Tools (10 and above), along with other audio software. The software is a free download for new and current owners of the Scarlett 18i8.
In addition to the Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-in Suite, the interface includes the Softube Time and Tone Pack. TSAR-1R Reverb adds space, depth, and width to a sound. Change settings with a single slider, from realistic three-dimensional rooms to dramatic and dreamlike halls. Tube Delay is an echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modeled tube stages - delivering everything from realistic room echoes, to rockabilly style slap back, to dub reggae echo. Saturation Knob is a modeled output distortion unit that adds grit and warmth - use it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy a drum loop.
