Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 1st Gen
Unfortunately, when I purchased my 18i8 and when New Valley Church also purchased one, it was 1st generation. As a result, we currently deal with latency issues that we’re unsure will or will not go away if we upgraded to 2nd gen. I’m sure it will happen soon, but not sure when that will be.
New Generation – Better In Every Way
The latest generation Scarlett 18i8 is packed full of upgrades. It operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz with new super-low latency* that lets you record and monitor with software effects in real time.
We completely redesigned the instrument inputs so they can handle even the hottest guitar pick-ups, and we’ve made it easier than ever to set your levels accurately. We’ve also built in new analogue protection circuitry across the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges.
