It is compact yet versatile, with Scarlett mic preamps, super-low latency*, and class-leading sound quality and digital conversion.

The Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 (2nd Gen) is a 18 in / 20 out USB 2.0 Audio interface designed for digital recording applications. The interface features eight natural-sounding combination inputs with Scarlett mic preamps plus newly-designed instrument inputs with extended headroom. The large amount of varied outputs makes it perfect for both studio and live applications, allowing you to connect a range of outboard equipment. The interface also features a brand new software bundle that provides you everything you need to start recording and making music out of the box.

Took a little bit bit of messing about to get this working well (Asioforall will not work with this fyi) after that, this interface works great. The preamps are terrific; even voice over work with an SM7b is clean. I like how easy this will be to expand as my studio inevitably grows.

The product has a very crisp and clean tone to it. Focusrite did a great job in updating the mic preamps on this. It has many options to play with. Only issue that I have is the Live Mixer software is not recognizing the unit itself. I will follow up with Focusrite on this issue. Asides that, the product is very reliable and works great!
