Focus on your music without worrying about your recordings. Feeding into class-leading 24-bit/192kHz converters, the Scarlett 3rd Gen mic preamp is high in gain, low in noise and supremely transparent. We’ve been making preamps for 30 years, and our decades of experience mean Scarlett sounds just like you.

 

THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE AIR

Activate the Air circuit on Scarlett 3rd Gen’s upgraded mic preamps to make your guitars and vocals sound instantly brighter and more spacious, giving them a lustrous sheen that can make all the difference in the mix. Air emulates the technology of the same name from our legendary ISA preamp – just ask your local hit record producer how big a deal that is.
