Focusrite Scarlett Interfaces

Focusrite Scarlett OctoPre ADAT Preamp

The 8-channel OctoPre is the perfect ADAT preamp if you’re looking to expand and elevate your studio.

Enhance Your Interface

The Focusrite Scarlett Octo Pre provides you with 8 extra analogue channels and is great for expanding your DAW’s channel count or an audio interface with ADAT I/O connectivity. Each channel is equipped with Focusrite’s Scarlett preamps and a soft-knee VCA compressor. You will also find 8 output channels which allow you to tailor the OctoPre and its preamps to a live environment.

Free Software

In addition to one of the best preamps around, Focusrite also includes all the software you need to spark new ideas and capture them. You receive access to two industry-standard digital audio workstations (also known as DAWs), Ableton Live Lite and a three-month subscription to Avid Pro Tools so you can start recording your music straight away. You also receive a three-month Splice Sounds subscription that offers a host of free loops, one-shots, presets and more.

When it’s time to process and polish your tracks, you can use the included Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite and the incredible Hitmaker Expansion. The Hitmaker Expansion gives you all the tools to make a chart-ready song, from the rich analogue-style sounds of the Brainworx bx_oberhausen synth to the powerful vocal processing of Antares Auto-Tune Access.

Once you’ve registered your new Scarlett OctoPre, you’ll receive free and deeply discounted plugins every few months through Focusrite’s Plug-in Collective.

If you’ve reached the point where you require additional in your studio for multitrack and ensemble recording - Focusrite’s Scarlett OctoPre ADAT expander is the answer.
