Description

Focusrite Clarett 8Pre USB 18-In/20-Out Audio Interface

The Focusrite Clarett Pre USB 18x20 USB audio interface is a powerful foundation for your studio or mobile recording rig. Audio Interface combines 24-bit / 192 kHz A/D/A conversion, low-latency monitoring, and a multitude of I/O options with eight, Air-enabled microphone preamps that can model the sound of the company's classic ISA preamps. With low noise (-128 dB EIN), low distortion, and 119 dB dynamic range, the high-performance mic preamps deliver a clean, open, and transparent sound, for accurate reproduction of the original performance.

Housed in a 1RU chassis, the Clarett 8Pre USB is equipped with two front panel mic/instrument/line inputs with high headroom for recording hot pickups without distortion, and six rear-mounted mic/line inputs, each with a separate gain knob. The interface also provides six line level outputs, two monitor outputs with anti-thump technology, a wordclock output, MIDI I/O, stereo S/PDIF I/O, and eight channels of ADAT I/O to expand your setup.

The front panel features two 1/4" headphone outputs with independent volume controls. A pair of +48V phantom power switches allow you to turn on phantom power for condenser microphones on channels 1-4 and 5-8 respectively. A display with six-segment multichannel LED meter provides visual feedback as well as level control, a dim button, and a mute button.

The Clarett 8Pre USB offers a comprehensive software package that includes the Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite with accurate models of the Red 2 equalizer and Red 3 compressor, the Softube Time and Tone Bundle with reverb, delay, mastering, and distortion plug-ins, a Loopmasters library with 2GB of royalty-free samples, and more. Also provided is the Focusrite Control software that enables you to configure your routing and monitor mixes from Mac and Windows computers, or iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices.
