Product Description

Clarett 8Pre USB is an 18-in, 20-out audio interface. Six-segment LED metering easily shows the signal level of the eight mic/line inputs, two of which are also high-impedance instrument inputs that can record super-hot pickups with no unwanted distortion. MIDI I/O and S/PDIF I/O are also included. ADAT I/O allows you to expand your setup with up to eight extra inputs and outputs when combined with multi-channel mic preamps like Clarett OctoPre. Analogue outs include two monitor outputs with anti-thump technology, eight line outputs, two headphone outputs with volume controls, and a word clock output for sending clock signal to external devices.

The eight Air-enabled mic preamps can reproduce the input impedance, clarity and frequency response curve of Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp. Clarett 8Pre USB connects to Mac or PC using the included standard USB and USB Type-C cables. Record with super-low latency through amp simulators and effects plug-ins.

Configure your routing and monitor mixes from Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch with user-friendly control software Focusrite Control. Additional included software is from XLN Audio, Focusrite, Softube, Ableton and Loopmasters.

Clarett USB lays down the challenge to interfaces twice the price. The Clarett USB range features specially designed high performance, low-noise (-128dB EIN) mic pres with a low distortion, ultra-linear design that guarantees a clean, open and transparent sound, giving accurate representation of the original performance. Boasting 118dB dynamic range, Clarett can now be experienced with any Mac or PC supporting USB 2.0 and above. Decades of analogue circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path – beating interfaces costing hundreds more.

Back On Track
What is your opinion of this product?
I have had a few Focusrite products in the past. From Sapphire to Sclarett and now Clarett. They have always been decent, not overwhelming to me only because I wasn't a big fan of the software included. I found myself really trying to find the best option in a rack and Clarett did it. The Presonus was a good choice for the money and adds incredible value if you don't have Presonus Studio One (v4) but I use not only Studio One V4 Pro but also Cubase Pro 10. I wanted something not Branded for either. I have used this Clarett 8 Pre with both DAWS, easy set up, clean and I am pretty happy with it. This isn't in quite the same league as Antelope, Apollo, RME in opinion but for my purposes this works out great, plus from what I read the Focusrite doesn't have the learning curve the others do. I wanted to get a rack under a grand and this really was what I felt was the best. Look at it this way, who cares what the gear is as long as it gets you inspired to use it.

Kicks butt
What is your opinion of this product?
I love the sound of this but I'm still needing to learn the finer points of it. The tone is killer I get great sounds for my Thrash Metal guitar work but no matter what style you play it is a worthy beast to have in your arsenal.
