Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre 18-In and 20-Out Audio Interface

Clarett⁺ 8Pre is a high-performance and immensely capable studio centrepiece for PC and Mac, which inspires producers, engineers and artists to create their best work. 

Features

Eight high-headroom, low-noise, low-distortion Clarett⁺ mic preamps — featuring All-analogue Air with impedance switching and relay control — capture vocals, drums and acoustic instruments with precise clarity. Two JFET instrument inputs preserve the natural tone of guitars, just like plugging into an amplifier.

Independent A-D and D-A Converters

Independent A-D and D-A converters bring recording artists closer than ever to their music, with extremely wide dynamic range, low noise and low distortion. Greatly improved D-A dynamic range brings every detail into focus, so engineers and producers can embrace no-compromise audio quality in abundance. Incredibly low A-D converter distortion lets you capture signals with more clarity, for greater transparency and sonic accuracy. Two improved, powerful and transparent headphone outputs inspire artists to hear every nuance of their sound on any type of headphones, customise their foldback mix, and perform their best.   

Benefits

Whether you’re multi-tracking a drum kit or connecting to synths and outboard equipment, Clarett⁺ 8Pre lets you constantly develop your musical ideas while always maintaining analogue purity and extreme audio clarity. Expand via ADAT to add eight inputs and outputs using Clarett OctoPre, and connect to MIDI and S/PDIF equipment to maximise your creative potential.

Eight professional quality Clarett⁺ preamps

Hear every nuance and capture the clearest and most powerful sounds with preamps that bring masses of headroom, low distortion and ultra-low noise.

Make vocals shine with all-analogue Air

Premium, relay-controlled analogue circuitry on every preamp emulates the classic Focusrite ISA 110 by switching the impedance to 2.2kΩ and adding two cumulative high shelves, totalling a 4dB boost in the high frequencies. 

New and improved A-D and D-A converters

Maintain the purity of analogue in your recordings and mixes, with extremely high-performance, independent A-D and D-A converters that deliver extremely low-distortion, low-noise audio with high dynamic range.

Two improved, powerful and transparent analogue headphone outputs

Inspire the best-sounding recordings and evoke amazing artist performances with improved headphone outputs that provide a flat frequency response at all output levels, with any type of headphones.

ADAT optical input
