Overview

Supports Any Mac/PC With USB 2.0 & Above

The Focusrite Clarett 8Pre USB Audio Interface can now be used with any PC or Mac supporting USB 2.0 and above, allowing home recordists to enjoy the iconic sound that Focusrite is known for. Included with the Clarett 8Pre interface are standard USB and USB Type-C cables, allowing you to get set up and connected straight out of the box. Expect a superior signal path, crystal clear conversion, high performance, and accurate and transparent sound with the Focusrite Clarett 8Pre USB audio interface.

Powerful Mic Preamps & Precise Conversion

The Clarett 8Pre USB incorporates 8 microphone preamps with a low-distortion, ultra-linear design that have been specially crafted to deliver a clean, transparent, and powerful sound. Record guitars, vocals, and more through the 8 ultra-low noise Clarett mic preamps, providing you with highly accurate audio. Additionally, the mic preamps also include a unique 'Air' feature, which enables them to reproduce the input impedance, clarity and frequency response curve of Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp, providing you with a cost-effective solution for recording in a true analog style tone. The Focusrite Clarett 8Pre delivers up to 118dB dynamic range and 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, making it a first choice for capturing audio to your DAW.

Versatile Connectivity

The Clarett 8Pre USB incorporates 8 mic/line inputs, 2 of which are for high-impedance instrument inputs that can record super-hot pickups with no unwanted distortion. The audio interface features 8 line outputs, MIDI I/O, S/PDIF I/O, 2 headphone ports with individual level control, and an ADAT input, allowing for multiple connections for versatile recording scenarios. The Clarett 8Pre USB allows you to connect up a number of instruments and microphones simultaneously. The Clarett USB audio interface features 2 monitor outputs with anti-thump technology, which protects your monitors from spikes when booting up and shutting down. Additionally, the audio interface also features 2 high power headphone outputs with volume control for each on the front, ideal for private listening, producing, and mixing with a friend or colleague. The Focusrite 8Pre USB Audio Interface also features an ADAT input, allowing for expansion of up to 8 additional input channels if needed.

Included Software

The Focusrite Clarett 8Pre USB comes bundled with a range of software for recording, processing, and producing music. Ableton Live Lite is included, providing you with a customised and streamlined version of Ableton Live, allowing you to get started with making music. Create music straight out the box with the included 2GB of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters, and process them with a range of Softube's world-class reverb, delay, mastering, and distortion plug-ins. Configure your routing and monitor mixes from a Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch with the user-friendly Focusrite Control software.
