Excellent sound is the quality Clarett owners love most. With up to 119dB dynamic range, superbly low noise, precision 24-bit/192kHz conversion and two specially designed mic preamps with a unique analogue Air effect, Clarett 8PreX 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 favourite plug-ins in real time.
THE HEART OF THE STUDIO
Specially designed for studio installation, Clarett 8PreX includes separate rear panel inputs for mic, line and instrument, ADAT I/O to add 16 more channels, and dedicated phantom power, phase reverse and high-pass filters on every channel.
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.
