The Clarett 8Pre USB

The Clarett sound – now on USB

Clarett USB lays down the challenge to interfaces twice the price and brings the Clarett sound to both Mac® and PC over USB. The 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. Record every detail with Clarett 8Pre USB.

Analogue Ins

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.

Analogue Outs

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.

Greater Connectivity

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.

The Sound of ISA

The Air-enabled mic preamps can reproduce the input impedance, clarity and frequency response curve of our original ISA mic preamp. Now you can choose. With or without Air.

The perfect A-D and D-A conversion

Decades of analogue circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path boasting 119dB dynamic range. Hear your music sound better than you've ever heard it sound before.

Focusrite Control

Configure your routing and monitor mixes from Mac®, PC, iPad®, iPhone® or iPod touch® with user-friendly control software Focusrite Control.
