Scarlett Solo Studio [3rd Gen]


2-in, 2-out USB audio interface with a condenser microphone and headphones


The single 3rd Generation Scarlett mic preamp sounds great straight out of the box. Air mode recreates the legendary effect of Focusrite's ISA mic pres and makes vocals and guitars shine. The high-impedance, high-headroom instrument input is great for recording guitar. Gain Halos make it easy to set input levels fast. Two balanced outputs are hum-free for pristine monitoring, mixing and mastering with studio monitors. The included CM25MkIII condenser mic is designed to capture every detail, and HP60 MkIII headphones are clear and comfortable for long recording sessions.

And it comes with some of the best-loved tools in the business, including Ableton Live Lite, Avid Pro Tools Artist and Hitmaker Expansion – with plugins from legendary Auto-Tune® creators Antares®, Brainworx®, Softube®, Landr, XLN Audio®, Relab and more.
