Focusrite Clarett 8Pre USB Product Description

Focusrite Clarett 8Pre USB 18-in, 20-out Audio Interface

Ultra-low noise (-128dB EIN) Clarett mic preamps, ultra-low distortion and 118dB dynamic range
Included standard USB and USB Type-C™ cables connect to Mac® or PC
24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion for the ideal signal path
High-headroom instrument inputs for recording super-hot pickups with no unwanted distortion
Eight Air-enabled mic preamps, which can reproduce the sound of Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp

Brainworx bx_console Focusrite: free for Clarett owners  

Focusrite have partnered with Brainworx to give Clarett owners the bx_console Focusrite plug-in for free. A flawless emulation of the iconic ISA 110 Equaliser and ISA 130 Dynamics Modules that retails for $349, bx_console Focusrite perfectly captures the famously open sound of the Focusrite Studio Console and adds a number of new features including continuous Gain and THD controls.

 

Clarett USB lays down the challenge to interfaces twice the price. The Clarett USB range features specially designed high performance, low-noise (-128dB EIN) mic pres with a low distortion, ultra-linear design that guarantees a clean, open and transparent sound, giving accurate representation of the original performance. Boasting 118dB dynamic range, Clarett can now be experienced with any Mac® or PC supporting USB 2.0 and above. Decades of analogue circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path – beating interfaces costing hundreds more.

Clarett 8Pre USB is an 18-in, 20-out audio interface. Six-segment LED metering easily shows the signal level of the eight mic/line inputs, two of which are also high-impedance instrument inputs that can record super-hot pickups with no unwanted distortion. MIDI I/O and S/PDIF I/O are also included. ADAT I/O allows you to expand your setup with up to eight extra inputs and outputs when combined with multi-channel mic preamps like Clarett OctoPre. Analogue outs include two monitor outputs with anti-thump technology, eight line outputs, two headphone outputs with volume controls, and a word clock output for sending clock signal to external devices.

The eight Air-enabled mic preamps can reproduce the input impedance, clarity and frequency response curve of Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp. Clarett 8Pre USB connects to Mac® or PC using the included standard USB and USB Type-C™ cables. Record with super-low latency through amp simulators and effects plug-ins.

Configure your routing and monitor mixes from Mac®, PC, iPad®, iPhone® or iPod touch® with user-friendly control software Focusrite Control. Additional included software is from XLN Audio, Focusrite, Softube, Ableton® and Loopmasters.
