The Ideal Musician’s Interface
Precision digital conversion means that you capture the most accurate, best-possible-sounding performance. And the mic pre inside the Scarlett Solo’s elegant, rugged and compact aluminium case is a genuine Focusrite microphone preamp with a 30-year heritage, specially designed for our interfaces, which lets you record with the legendary Scarlett sound.
Sleek, light and tough enough to take whenever you go, Scarlett Solo turns your Mac or PC into a portable recording studio. Whenever inspiration strikes, simply plug in any microphone and instrument, and start making the highest quality recordings.
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.
Power with USB
Simply plug into your Mac or PC via USB and start recording, without the need for a bulky power supply.
Plug Any Instrument Straight In
Plug straight into a high quality DI that minimises the risk of distortion, or switch to line level to instantly connect your mono analogue synth or outboard gear to the rest of your studio.
Immerse Yourself in Sound
Connect your headphones and speakers to immerse yourself in Focusrite-quality sound, using the large volume dial to set the perfect level.
Always Record at the Right Level
Get a clean recording every time by keeping an eye on the halos around the gain knobs. They stay green when your level is good and turn red if you’re too loud.
Everything You Need
Inside the box you’ll find all the software and sounds you need to record and mix music. This includes Ableton Live Lite 9 recording software, 1GB of Loopmasters sample content, the Novation Bass Station virtual instrument and Focusrite’s Scarlett plug-in suite.
Record Better Vocals
The slight delay between your singing and the sound of your voice in your headphones can be very distracting. Simply flick a switch to hear exactly what you’re recording without any of this latency.
