The perfect audio interface for a singer-songwriter


The simplest model in the range, the third-generation 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.

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.

Key Features
• The best performing mic preamps the Scarlett range has ever seen, now with switchable Air mode to give your recordings a brighter and more open sound
• One high-headroom instrument input to plug in your guitar or bass
• High-performance converters enable you to record and mix at up to 24-bit/192kHz
• Two hum-free balanced outputs provide clean audio playback
• With the Quick Start tool, it's now easier than ever to get up and running

Scarlett Solo is designed to stand up to days on the road and connects straight to your Mac[reg] or PC via USB cable, with no external power required. It comes with all the software tools you need to get started, including the comprehensive digital audio workstation Ableton[reg] Live Lite[trade] and 3-month subscription to Pro Tools[reg]. Intuitive enough for beginners yet advanced enough to inspire real creativity with great-sounding effects.

I was using a $20 USB guitar cable I picked up on amazon for GarageBand and BiasFX and I always had to dial back the volume so the guitar wouldn't distort. Then I got an active bass and there was no amount of settings changes that would make the bass not distort badly, I WAS going to sell the bass then I decided to pick this up and it's amazing. It's exactly what I needed to get a clean sound into my Mac.
