Focusrites Scarlett 18i8 (2nd Gen) is a beast in its own right. It's built broadly on its original design. On the front, you'll find four combi inputs, for XLR (mic), Instrument or Line level sources. Each with its own gain dial, while phantom power is available in pairs for inputs 1-2 and 3-4. On the right, there's a prominent Monitor dial to control the output level produced from the stereo line outputs (on the rear panel), along with that there are two independent headphone outputs with yet again their own level controls.

So you are looking to record your band or maybe do a live PA on the road or in a small studio. Focusrite has always made all their USB powered audio interfaces portable and sturdy to boot. The front of the Scarlett 18i8 paints a nice picture but its round the back where all the magic happens. There are four more line level inputs, S/PDIF In/Out and an Optical input which can carry eight additional channels of digital input (channels 11-18) at 44.1kHz and 48kHz, or four if working at higher sample rates. While being easily connected to your Mac or PC through its tough USB connection.

You can build a wall of sound with this easy go lucky USB audio interface that delivers the world class sound you have grown to love from Focusrite.
