The rear inputs are fixed 81i6 a medium gain setting that works well for line-in type sources that have a good range of output gain available. Dedicated front-panel headphone bus. I hope Focusrite would come out with a better driver since Scarlett is fully dependent on the PC and cannot be used standalone!


I was able to quickly add a bunch of inputs and outputs to my Studio One setup! All of the analogue and digital inputs you need for home multitrack recording.
