Clarett 8Pre USB 18-in, 20-out audio interface

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 analog circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path–beating interfaces costing hundreds more.

Key Features:

  • Eight Air-enabled mic preamps emulate the sound of the company's original ISA mic preamp
  • Low-noise (-128 dB EIN) mic preamps with low distortion and up to 119 dB dynamic range
  • Precision 24-bit / 192 kHz A/D and D/A conversion
  • Record with low latency through amp simulators and effects plug-ins
  • Two mic/line/instrument XLR-1/4" combo inputs on front-panel
  • Six mic/line XLR-1/4" combo inputs on rear panel
  • Switchable 48V phantom power
  • High-headroom instrument inputs for recording hot pickups without distortion
  • Stereo S/PDIF I/O
  • Eight channels of ADAT I/O
  • 5-pin MIDI I/O
  • Two monitor outputs with anti-thump technology
  • Eight additional line outputs
  • Two headphone outputs with independent volume controls
  • Six-segment LED metering easily shows the signal level
  • Dim and mute monitor control buttons on front panel
  • Wordclock output for sending clock signal to external equipment
  • Supports any Mac or Windows computer with USB 2.0 and above

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 connec ts 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.
