Applies to: Scarlett 3rd Gen (all models)
Scarlett 3rd Gen interfaces have a 'USB-C' to 'USB-A' included in the box. If your computer has a 'USB-A' port, use the included cable to connect your Scarlett to your computer.
If your computer has a style 'USB-C' port (pictured below), you can use a 'USB C' to 'USB C' cable (not supplied).
If you need to use a 'USB C' to 'USB C' cable, we recommend using one of the following cables. We have tested these cables with the Scarlett 3rd Gen interfaces and have found no connectivity or performance issues;

- The Scarlett interface is a USB 2.0 interface, using a USB 2.0+ (e.g., USB 3.0, 3,1 etc.) cable will work, but the increased bandwidth will not offer any benefits to the signal quality or latency speed.
- We recommend you use the shortest USB cable you can. We do not recommend using cables longer than 2m in length. Longer cables can cause issues such as glitches in the audio, dropouts, lack of power to the interface and simply the interface not connecting.
