Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 [3rd Gen] 8ch in and 10 out: record 8 chan at once?

Hi all,
Has anyone tired this unit and got all 8 chan to record into Audacity?
Someone told me that after you load the driver, audacity opens to 8 channels and you can record 8 channels at once. Anyone confirm?

There is some information in the User Manual.

But lot of people have trouble Multitracking with Audacity. :frowning:

Your interface should have come with Ableton Live Lite which should work better. It should also have some better features for mixing multiple tracks.

(Audacity can mix OK but it doesn’t have a master mix-level fader or meters for each track, and I assume Ableton does. It also may handle effects better/easier while mixing.)

Hi Doug,
Thanks for the quick reply.
I haven’t bought it yet and didn’t know about the software.
I will get a demo of the AB Live Lite and see if it is easy for an old guy like me to learn.
As always, appreciate the advice.
