Scarlett Solo

Plug Straight In

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.

Check Your Levels At A Glance

Unique “halo” indicators let you know that you’ve got a good signal level for recording. Red means that your signal is clipping, and that you should reduce the gain. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the level returns to a healthy level, at which point it will turn green.

Check Your Levels

Polish Your Mix

All Scarlett audio interfaces include Ableton Live Lite recording software, plus two powerful software plug-ins: Red Plug-in Suite and Scarlett Plug-in Suite.

Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-In Suite

The Red Plug-in Suite accurately models our classic Red 2 equaliser and Red 3 compressor, to bring the sound of the famous original hardware to your music software.

LED Halos

Unique LED Gain Halos

The gain halos which surround the gain knob for each input provides an easy way to know that the signal you’re recording is the right level. It will show green when the signal is at a good level (above -24dBFS). If it turns to red, you know that the signal is too loud and is therefore clipping – if this happens, simply reduce the gain until the halo returns to green.

Direct Monitor Function
