The Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre Audio Interface 18-in/20-out audio interface from Focusrite provides a solid basis for any studio or mobile recording setup. It has eight Clarett+ microphone preamplifiers that sound fantastic, a wide dynamic range, and ultra-fast, low-latency performance provided by USB-C. The magic begins the moment you connect in your microphones: the mic preamps have Focusrite’s switchable Air effect, which gives your microphones the air and clarity of an ISA transformer-based mic preamp. The Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre is ready to fit into practically any recording setup thanks to its extensive connection, which includes analog I/O, S/PDIF, and ADAT I/O.
Outstanding versatility, speed, and sonic performance
The Clarett+ 8Pre’s eight newly designed mic preamps deliver a truly impressive dynamic range. Perfect for your studio or mobile recording rig, the Clarett+ 8Pre gives you a wealth of connectivity — including ADAT and MIDI I/O — all in a sleek 1U form factor. With its sonic performance, leading edge round-trip audio latency and ease of use, the Clarett+ 8 Pre is an excellent choice of interface.
Eight Clarett+ mic preamps with Air effect
Focusrite fitted the Clarett+ 8Pre with mic preamps that were designed exclusively for the Clarett+ range with loads of pristine gain and vanishingly low noise. In addition, these preamps include Focusrite’s proprietary Air feature that switches in an analog model of Focusrite’s acclaimed classic transformer-based ISA mic pre, breathing life into your recordings. If you’ve always wanted vocals that shimmer with presence and silky air, then try recording with the Clarett+ 8Pre. You will be impressed!
The cleanest way yet to get sound in and out of your DAW
Sound engineers know that conversion is key to superior digital audio, and every Clarett+ features the latest in Focusrite’s class-leading 24-bit/192kHz conversion. Offering an expanded dynamic range and higher signal-to-noise ratio than previous models, the Clarett+ is the cleanest way to get sound in and out of your DAW.
Generous I/O to handle any recording scenario
The Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre gives you 18 audio inputs and 20 outputs packed into a trim 1U rackmount chassis. This includes eight analog inputs, ten analog outputs, stereo S/PDIF I/O, and eight channels of ADAT I/O. The ADAT output is perfect for sending audio to an external D/A for line output expansion, while the input can be used to bring in eight additional digital mic preamp channels, such as the Focusrite OctoPre MkII, for maximum flexibility. In addition, two front-panel mic/line/instrument inputs give you quick and easy access — even when you’ve got your Clarett+ rack mounted. And those hi-Z inputs have copious headroom to handle your guitars and basses with hot passive or active pickups.
Accessible metering and monitoring
Featuring a 6-segment, multichannel LED meter, the Clarett+ 8Pre’s monitor panel keeps you informed of analog and digital input levels and main monitor outputs. Monitoring facilities include a level control, as well as dim and mute buttons. Add to that two wide dynamic range front-panel headphone outputs with enough power to deliver healthy levels to high-impedance headphones, and the Clarett+ becomes your go-to device for tracking and mixing.
Intuitive and easy-to-use software mixer
Focusrite Control, a new software mixer included with Clarett+, simplifies monitoring and routing configurations. Focusrite Control’s classic mixing workflow and instant access to dim, mute, and other hardware capabilities make it straightforward to use.
Remote control from your iPhone or iPad
With the free Focusrite iOS Control app, you can adjust the mixes you made with Focusrite Control on the desktop app from your iPad or iPhone.
