Better. Faster. Easier. Excellent sound is the quality Clarett owners love most. With up to 119dB dynamic range, superbly low noise, precision 24-bit/192kHz conversion and eight specially designed mic preamps with a unique analogue Air effect, Clarett 8Pre simply sounds great, easily outperforming other interfaces in its class and beyond. Meanwhile, its 1.67 ms round-trip latency simplifies your workflow and lets you use your favorite plug-ins in real time.

Focusrite Clarett 8Pre Audio Interface Features:

  • Eight Clarett Mic Pres With Extra Air - The mic pres have been designed especially 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.
  • The Perfect A-D and D-A Conversion - Decades of analogue circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path with 119dB dynamic range. Hear your music sound better than you've ever heard it sound before.
  • Revolutionize Your Workflow - Clarett's ultra-low round-trip latency completely transforms your workflow. Now you can get the most out of recording through your favorite amp sim and guitar effect plug-ins in real time.
  • Enjoy Two Years Of Warranty - Commitment To Customers - Wherever you happen to be in the world, you can rely on Focusrite's two-year warranty if any Focusrite hardware needs repairing or replacing due to a manufacturing fault.
  • Focusrite Control - Configure your routing and monitor mixes from Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch with user-friendly control software Focusrite Control.
