Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre USB Audio Interface

The Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre USB audio interface is premium-quality 18-in/20-out recording solution. The Clarett+ 8Pre features the most impressive spec out of all the interfaces in the Clarett+ series, with onboard 8 preamps/line inputs and 10 line outputs. The 8Pre is one to go for if you need a comprehensive, all-in-one USB audio interface that can handle practically any recording situation with ease. Like its smaller siblings, the Clarett+ 8Pre boasts exceptional audio performance thanks to its studio-quality mic preamps and dual JFET instrument inputs.

Studio-Quality Recording

Focusrite has equipped the Clarett+ 8Pre with 8 Air-enabled mic preamps, making it the most complete and versatile standalone option in the series. If you’re planning on doing multi-track recordings, such as full drum kits or ensembles, the Clarett+ 8Pre has everything you need to capture it with astonishing detail and clarity. The handy display on the front panel gives you a visual guide when dialling in the levels, making it easy to set up a clean recording. The 8Pre is also the only interface in the Clarett+ range to feature a Word Clock output, which allows you to use the 8Pre as a master clock source in your studio.

Focusrite’s Clarett+ 8Pre audio interface is outfitted with an ADAT optical input and output, giving you the ability to easily expand its already comprehensive onboard I/O further. For engineers that need to run a demanding multi-tracked live session, this capability is indispensable. Plus, if you’re using a rackmount-based setup for your live rig or in your recording studio, the 8Pre can be easily integrated thanks to the included rack ears.

The Focusrite Clarett + 8Pre is a powerful studio-grade interface that delivers professional-quality sound. Boasting world-class analogue preamps that emulate the legendary ISA signal path, robust build quality and a wealth of connectivity, the Clarett+ 8Pre is highly recommended if you’re serious about making pro recordings.
