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.
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.
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.
Scarlett Plug-In Suite

Included Software – DAW and Effects
Inside the box you'll find Ableton Live Lite, as well as Focusrite's Scarlett plug-in suite. Compatible with all major DAWs, Scarlett plug-in suite provides EQ, Compression, Gate and Reverb essential tools for polishing your mix.
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
Flick the direct monitor switch on the front panel of your Solo and you will hear what you're recording through your speakers or headphones, without the signal having to go through your computer. This avoids the possibility of latency, which can be distracting when recording.
