Product Description for the Focusrite Scarlett Solo Studio
Scarlett Solo is a member of the top-selling range of USB audio interfaces in the world – a range that sells on its sound quality. From the simplest to the most sophisticated, each Scarlett USB audio interface provides the perfect combination of top-quality precision digital conversion and Focusrite’s legendary mic preamps. Like all Scarlett interfaces, Scarlett Solo is fully compatible with Macintosh including Yosemite, and Windows computers, and with the included Red 2 and Red 3 AAX plugins, it’s a perfect partner for Pro Tools.
Precision digital converters capture your performance with studio-quality 24-bit resolution at sample rates of up to 96kHz. Simply plug into your Mac or PC via USB (USB cable supplied) and start recording. Get your volume right every time by keeping an eye on the halos around the gain knobs. Focusrite's unique gain halos stay green when your level is right and turn red if you're too loud. Simply flick the direct monitor switch to hear exactly what you're recording without latency. Connect your headphones and speakers and immerse yourself in Focusrite-quality sound, using the large volume dial to set the perfect level. Scarlett Solo has an exceptional dynamic range of over 105dB.
Record with Focusrite’s legendary sound
The better your preamp, the better your microphone will sound, and the better the recording. Focusrite preamps like the one in Scarlett Solo are widely considered the best in the world. +48V phantom power is also built-in, so you can use any microphone you like, including high-quality condenser types.
Plug Straight In
Scarlett Solo lets you get a musical idea down minutes after it’s hit you. Plug a microphone into input 1 and an instrument into input 2 – the two settings suit pickups as well as keyboards. Set the levels simply and quickly: unique halos around the gain knobs will stay green when your level is good and turn red if you’re too loud – you can be confident you’re always recording at the right level.
Carry Scarlett Solo with you – its durable and elegant aluminium unibody enclosure is designed for life on the road, and you can take it anywhere. Simply plug it into your Mac or PC via USB and start recording, without the need for a bulky power supply.
Capture Every Detail
Scarlett Solo is great for demos – but it’s perfect for masters too! Precision converters capture your performance in studio-quality 24-bit resolution digital audio. Use sample rates of up to 96kHz for pristine, clear recordings and an exceptional dynamic range of over 105dB for master-quality sound. There’s no better way of getting the highest quality into your computer.
