Studio-grade audio interface with eight mic preamps and two JFET instrument inputs.

The Clarett+ 8Pre USB audio interface from Focusrite is a studio-grade interface that provides an exceptional recording experience. Its eight Clarett+ mic preamps offer wide gain range, low noise and ultralow distortion for capturing vocals and acoustic instruments with stunning clarity. Two high-impedance instrument inputs are perfect for plugging in electric guitars and basses, preserving their natural tone. Newly upgraded audio converters provide an extremely wide dynamic range and vanishingly low distortion, allowing you to hear every nuance of your recordings.

Eight Pristine Mic Preamps for Multi-Tracking

The eight mic preamps in the Clarett+ 8Pre offer plenty of headroom and gain for recording a full drum kit or capturing an ensemble. Their low-noise, low-distortion design results in remarkably transparent recordings. Vocals and acoustic instruments are reproduced with lifelike realism, allowing singers and instrumentalists to achieve their best takes.

Hi-Z Instrument Inputs for Direct Recording

Plug your electric guitar or bass straight into the Clarett+ 8Pre's instrument inputs to capture the natural tone and feel of your instrument. The high-impedance design loads pickups evenly for a balanced frequency response. Record late-night jam sessions or compose music for your DAW without setting up an amplifier.

Cutting-Edge Audio Converters for Pristine Quality

Newly designed analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters offer extremely low noise and distortion, high maximum levels and an ultrawide dynamic range. The result is a level of clarity and realism that lets you hear every detail. Mixing engineers and producers will appreciate the increased depth and dimension, while artists can customize their headphone mixes to hear their performances with pinpoint accuracy.

Flexible Monitoring and Expandability

Two powerful headphone amplifiers provide independent volume control for recording artists. Connect the Clarett+ 8Pre to external equipment via ADAT to add eight additional inputs and outputs, S/PDIF and MIDI. This premium interface has the connectivity and sound quality to be the centerpiece of any studio.
