Better. Faster. Easier.

Excellent sound is the quality Clarett owners love most. With up to 119dB dynamic range, superbly low noise, precision 24/192 conversion and eight specially-designed mic preamps with a unique analogue “Air” effect, Clarett 8Pre is the Thunderbolt audio interface that simply sounds great, easily out-performing others in its class and beyond. Meanwhile, its astonishing 1.38ms round-trip latency* simplifies your workflow and lets you use your favourite plug-ins in real time.

Eight New Clarett Mic Pres with extra ‘Air’

The mic pres have been designed specifically for the Clarett range, with plenty of gain, yet low noise and distortion. In addition, they include a special “Air” feature that switches in an analogue model of the classic transformer-based Focusrite ISA mic pre. The Instrument inputs also feature extra headroom to handle the loudest pickup. It’s the Focusrite Sound over Thunderbolt.

Precision Digital Conversion

Clarett features Focusrite’s class-leading 24/192 conversion: with up to 119dB dynamic range, Clarett offers the cleanest way yet to get music in and out of your DAW over Thunderbolt.

Revolutionise your Workflow

Clarett’s ultra-low round-trip latency completely transforms your workflow. If you’re used to having to build two different mixes – one using input monitoring to overdub, the other using the DAW for playback – the good news is that now, one is enough. Build your mix on the DAW and use it whether you’re overdubbing (monitoring the input you’re recording with the new Focusrite Control software mixer) or playing back, with all your plugins in place, all the time. Use your favourite plugins while recording too – whether it’s reverb on a vocal, a guitar amp simulator, or even virtual instruments live on stage.

Easy Access

Two mic/line/instrument inputs on the front panel give you instant, easy access to a pair of analogue inputs, even when rack mounted.

Intuitive, Easy to Use Software Mixer and Sweet Sounding Plug-ins

Focusrite Control is a brand new software mixer designed for easy configuration of monitoring and routing setups. Simple and intuitive to use, Focusrite Control offers a traditional mixer workflow and allows immediate access to internal hardware functions. Also included is a sweet sounding plug-in collection comprising Softube's world-class Time and Tone Pack, with TSAR-1R Reverb, Tube Delay and Saturation Knob. This is complemented by the Red 2 & Red 3 AAX, AU & VST Plug-in Suite, which accurately models Focusrite’s classic Red range equalizer and compressor hardware.

Accessible Metering and Monitoring

The monitor section provides a clear view of input and main monitor output levels, via a 6-segment, multichannel hardware meter. Monitor features include an assignable level control, plus back-lit dim and mute buttons, alongside dual high-power headphone outputs.

Enough Channels for the Band

18 audio inputs and 20 outputs within a 1U rack space, including eight analogue inputs, 10 analogue outputs, stereo S/PDIF I/O and eight channels of ADAT I/O. The ADAT ports are ideal for sending audio to an external D/A for line output expansion, or adding eight channels of digital mic pre.

Focusrite iOS Control

Adjust your cue mixes and preamp settings, remotely from your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

Focusrite iOS Control works with the Focusrite Control desktop application that comes with all Focusrite audio interfaces from the Scarlett 6i6 (2nd Gen) and up, including the Clarett and Red interface ranges. Just install the free iOS App on your iPhone or iPad, make sure you're connected to the same network, and approve the iOS device in the desktop app. Focusrite iOS Control gives you remote control of your hardware inputs, software playback, panning, solo and mute as well as the preamp settings on your interface - all from your iOS device.
