Focusrite has unveiled its new Scarlett 3rd Generation USB interfaces. Packed with a bevy of new features, the new models are said to be the best-sounding Scarlett boxes to date.
The most noteworthy of the 3rd Generation's new features is the new and improved mic pre. Designed to reproduce the Air effect from Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp, the mic pre is meant to add brightness and space to vocal and acoustic recordings.
The interfaces' 24-bit/192kHz converters are designed with clarity in mind, while the driver enables ultra-low latency. The interfaces also feature helpful gain halos, which indicate input levels.
Connectivity comes via a USB-C, while a USB-C to USB-A cable comes in the box. A neat software bundle—featuring Ableton Live Lite, a three-month subscription to Splice Sounds, XLN Audio’s Addictive Keys, Focusrite’s Red Plug-in Suite, the Softube Time & Tone bundle and more—is also included.
