OVERVIEW

An exceptional audio interface with 2 combo inputs, 6 line outputs and up to 8 extended digital inputs via ADAT. Great for a home or project studio.

Focusrite's Clarett audio interfaces feature high-performance, low-noise mic preamps with a low-distortion, ultra-linear design, 24-bit/192kHz digital conversion and extra headroom to handle the loudest pickup possible. This guarantees a clean, open and transparent sound. Additionally, each Clarett mic pre has a unique “Air” switch, which, when initialized, will emulate Focusrite’s classic transformer-based preamps.

The Clarett 2Pre offers 2 combination XLR/TRS inputs; 4 line outputs; S/PDIF and MIDI I/O; and up to 8 channels of additional digital inputs via ADAT. The iconic red front panel boasts a large rotary-style master fader, a headphone input and rotary control for the headphone volume. Each preamp input has its own phantom power switch and rotary gain dials giving optimal control over the level sent to your DAW. To protect against clipping, the Clarett 4Pre features Focusrite’s signature “Gain Halo”—an illuminated ring around the gain control dial that lights up green when there’s signal and red when that signal is too high.

With its outstanding high-resolution conversion, versatile preamps and extensive digital input connectivity, Focusrite's 4Pre will deliver incredible audio quality for a whole host of applications.

Configure your routing and monitor mixes from Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch with user-friendly control software Focusrite Control.

Comments about Focusrite Clarett 2Pre USB Audio Interface:

I use this product to record into Cubase on my Windows pc. This audio interface easily lets you record analog instruments and microphones straight into your DAW software. With the SPDIF interface the unit can be expanded or used as a great digital input if you've got equipment that has that as an output. I use the SPDIF connection directly off my keyboard straight into the Clarett and it gives the cleanest and quietest audio recording into the computer.

While the Focusrite "Focus Control" software is much improved over older version, it's still not as intuitive as it should be. I find it confusing to use. However, the Focusrite support folks have been great in helping me out with the proper settings.

A great bonus is that once you register your unit you have access to some great downloads to enhance your recording capabilities. Nice.
