Is my Scarlett interface a 1st Gen or 2nd Gen?

Applies to: Scarlett 1st Gen & 2nd Gen

If you have purchased a Scarlett interface after 1st June 2016, then you may be confused as to whether it is a 1st Gen or 2nd Gen Scarlett.

If you turn over your Scarlett unit, you should see a sticker containing a barcode on the base of the unit, below this will be a serial number, the prefix of your serial number will denote which generation Scarlett you own:

Sxxxxxxxxxxx or Txxxxxxxxxxx = 1st Gen

Vxxxxxxxxxxxx or Wxxxxxxxxxxxx = 2nd Gen

Which generation you have will determine what software and drivers appear in your user account, as well as which Downloads page you select on the Focusrite website.
