Overview

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

The Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre is a high-performance and immensely capable studio centerpiece for PC and Mac. Eight high-headroom, low-noise, low-distortion Clarett+ mic preamps capture vocals, drums and acoustic instruments with precise clarity. Two JFET instrument inputs preserve the natural tone of guitars, just like plugging into an amplifier. Independent A-D and D-A converters bring recording artists closer than ever to their music, with extremely wide dynamic range, low noise and low distortion.

Greatly improved D-A dynamic range brings every detail into focus, so engineers and producers can embrace no-compromise audio quality in abundance, while incredibly low A-D converter distortion lets you capture signals with more clarity. Two improved, powerful and transparent headphone outputs allow artists to hear every nuance of their sound, customize their foldback mix and perform their best. Whether you’re multi-tracking a drum kit or connecting to synths and outboard equipment, the Clarett+ 8Pre lets you constantly develop your musical ideas while always maintaining analogue purity and extreme audio clarity. Expand via ADAT to add eight inputs and outputs using Clarett OctoPre, and connect to MIDI and S/PDIF equipment to maximize your creative potential.

Additional Upgrades on Clarett+
Improved independent A-D/D-A converters bring audio clarity to everything from home recordings to studio tracking sessions.
A newly chosen D-A converter—used in conjunction with meticulously designed output filter circuitry—yields greater dynamic range, which is especially noticeable on music with high dynamic variation.
A lower D-A converter noise floor allows users to hear the intricate dynamic variations in mixes and recordings, with more low-level detail than ever before.
