Focusrite compiles studio recording set-up
The new Scarlett Solo Studio Pack with interface, mic, headphones, cable and software, for musicians and songwriters to record anywhere
ocusrite Audio Engineering have launched the Scarlett Solo Studio Pack, containing all the equipment needed to start recording music with a Mac or PC – a Scarlett Solo USB audio interface, a USB cable, a large diaphragm Scarlett Studio CM25 condenser microphone with stand clip, a three metre XLR microphone cable, a pair of closed-back Scarlett Studio HP60 headphones, as well as recording software, plug-in suite and sample pack.
The Scarlett Solo is a metal-cased USB-powered 2-in/2-out interface with studio-quality 24-bit resolution digital audio, sample rates of up to 96kHz, a dynamic range of over 105dB and Focusrite’s renowned microphone preamps with +48V phantom power. The unique ‘halos’ surrounding the gain controls stay green when the input level is correct and turn red if it gets too loud, and a direct monitor switch makes it possible to hear what is being recorded without latency. There’s also a line level input to connect the Scarlett Solo with a mono analogue synth or outboard gear to the rest of your studio.
Software bundled in the pack includes Cubase recording software, Ableton Live Lite, Focusrite Scarlett plug-in suite, Novation’s Bass Station virtual synthesiser and 1GB of Loopmasters sample content.
Focusrite’s Scarlett Solo Studio Pack will be made available at a suggested retail price of £149.99.
