USB-C comes to Scarlett series

Focusrite’s Scarlett series comprises six different models

The third generation of Focusrite’s Scarlett range of USB audio interfaces has arrived, bringing with it upgraded microphone preamps, a new and interactive Quick Start tool and USB-C connectivity. Apart from the addition of the new USB Type-C port, the external layout of the devise remains unchanged.

The Scarlett series comprises six different models, each with a variety of inputs and outputs – Solo, 2i2, 4i4, 8i6, 18i8 or the rack-mountable 18i20. These inputs have been improved to offer more headroom, while the units also feature additional line-level inputs for flexible recording setups and balanced TRS outputs to eliminate speaker hum. According to the manufacturer, 24-bit/192kHz converters promise clarity of recording, while the upgraded mic preamps can reproduce the Air effect of Focusrite’s original ISA mic preamp, giving vocals and acoustic music a ‘brighter and more spacious’ sound.

As with the previous generation models, the new units will ship with a whole range of software tools including Ableton Live, Pro Tools and First Focusrite Creative Pack.

Additionally, Brainworx has created a DAW emulation of Focusrite’s ISA 110 equaliser and ISA 130 dynamic modules, popularised in the 1980s and 1990s. The British interface manufacturer is giving away the bx_console Focusrite VST/AU/AAX plug-in for Mac and PC free to owners of its Clarett and Red interfaces.

In other news, RedNet Control 2.4 has been released, a free software update that adds Dante Domain Manager (DDM) and AES67/AES70 compatibility. RedNet Control 2.4 recognises the four distinct levels of system access granted within DDM: Site Administrator, Domain Administrator, Operator and Guest. Also new is AES3 Kill Switch control for RedNet D16 and RedNet D16R and AES67 compatibility for RedNet X2P and RedNet AM2 Ultimo X interfaces. RedNet Control 2.4 can now run as a background application if needed, so MIDI control continues to function when the software window is closed.
