The Ideal Musician’s Interface

Precision digital conversion means that you capture the most accurate, best-possible-sounding performance. And the mic pre inside the Scarlett Solo’s elegant, rugged and compact aluminium case is a genuine Focusrite microphone preamp with a 30-year heritage, specially designed for our interfaces, which lets you record with the legendary Scarlett sound.

Sleek, light and tough enough to take whenever you go, Scarlett Solo turns your Mac or PC into a portable recording studio. Whenever inspiration strikes, simply plug in any microphone and instrument, and start making the highest quality recordings.

Record with Focusrite’s legendary sound

The better your preamp, the better your microphone will sound, and the better the recording. Focusrite preamps like the one in Scarlett Solo are widely considered the best in the world. +48V phantom power is also built-in, so you can use any microphone you like, including high-quality condenser types.

Plug Straight In

Scarlett Solo lets you get a musical idea down minutes after it’s hit you. Plug a microphone into input 1 and an instrument into input 2 – the two settings suit pickups as well as keyboards. Set the levels simply and quickly: unique halos around the gain knobs will stay green when your level is good and turn red if you’re too loud – you can be confident you’re always recording at the right level.

Record Anywhere

Carry Scarlett Solo with you – its durable and elegant aluminium unibody enclosure is designed for life on the road, and you can take it anywhere. Simply plug it into your Mac or PC via USB and start recording, without the need for a bulky power supply.

Capture Every Detail

Scarlett Solo is great for demos – but it’s perfect for masters too! Precision converters capture your performance in studio-quality 24-bit resolution digital audio. Use sample rates of up to 96kHz for pristine, clear recordings and an exceptional dynamic range of over 105dB for master-quality sound. There’s no better way of getting the highest quality into your computer.
