Turn ideas into records. Hook up a guitar and a mic and make the best recordings you ever have. Solo is studio sound made simple.

The single 3rd Generation Scarlett mic preamp sounds great straight out of the box. Air mode recreates the legendary effect of Focusrite's ISA mic pres and makes vocals and guitars shine. The high-impedance, high-headroom instrument input is great for recording guitar or bass without clipping, while our iconic Gain Halos make it easy to set input levels fast. Two balanced outputs are hum-free for pristine monitoring, mixing and mastering with studio monitors. And it comes with some of the best-loved tools in the business, including Ableton Live Lite, Avid Pro Tools Artist and Hitmaker Expansion – with plugins from legendary Auto-Tune® creators Antares®, Brainworx®, Softube®, Landr, XLN Audio®, Relab and more.
