An exceptional audio interface with 8 combo inputs, 10 line outputs, S/PDIF I/O and up to 8 extended digital inputs and outputs 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 8Pre offers 10 combination XLR/TRS inputs; 10 line outputs; S/PDIF and MIDI I/O; and up to 8 channels of additional digital inputs and outputs via ADAT. The iconic red front panel boasts a large rotary-style master fader with designated rotary controls for the headphone volume. Phantom power can be enabled on the inputs from the 48V group buttons, where the top button delivers phantom power to inputs 1-4 and the bottom button send phantom power to inputs 5-8. Each input has an assigned rotary dial to adjust the gain, giving you optimal control over the level sent to your DAW. To protect against clipping, the Clarett 8Pre 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 8Pre 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.
