Focusrite Unveils Scarlett Solo Interface

A 2-in/2-out USB interface that features 24-bit audio with sample rates up to 96kHz.

Bucks, United Kingdom (August 15, 2014) -- Whatever their budget, everybody should be able to make and record music with exceptional sound quality. That's why Focusrite have created Scarlett Solo: their most affordable Scarlett, yet the best sounding interface in its price range.

Specs:

  • 2-in/2-out USB interface
  • 106dB dynamic range, -125dB EIN and -97dB THD
  • Genuine Focusrite Scarlett mic pre
  • High headroom instrument input: +14dBu
  • 24-bit audio with sample rates up to 96kHz
  • Direct latency-free monitoring

Compact and simple, Scarlett Solo is still every bit a Scarlett, with a dynamic range of 106dB and enviable noise and distortion performance. It has the same preamp quality and signature red metal case as the rest of the range; the only difference is the size - and the price. No matter their experience level, everyone can appreciate good sound. That's the driving force behind the Scarlett range - to create the best sounding interface for every budget. For Focusrite, sound is everything.

So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
