Outstanding versatility, speed, and sonic performance

The Clarett 8Pre USB’s eight Clarett mic preamps deliver truly impressive dynamic range. Perfect for your studio or mobile recording rig, the Clarett 8Pre USB gives you a wealth of connectivity — including ADAT and MIDI I/O — all in a sleek 1U form factor. With its sonic performance, leading edge round-trip audio latency and ease of use, the Clarett 8 Pre is an excellent choice of interface.

Use your favorite plug-ins in real time

With the Clarett 8Pre’s exceedingly low round-trip audio latency over USB, you can record and monitor in real time with your favorite familiar DAW plug-ins. No special processing or DSP is required. Select any plug-in and create your dream recording chain on every single channel. Every Clarett ships with the Focusrite Classic Red 2 and Red 3 AAX, AU, and VST plug-in suite, which accurately models Focusrite’s classic Red range EQ and compression hardware. Also included is Softube’s Time and Tone Pack — a powerful plug-in bundle consisting of Softube’s world-class TSAR-1R reverb, Tube Delay, and Saturation Knob.

Eight Clarett mic preamps with Air effect

Designed exclusively for the Clarett range, the preamps in the Clarett 8Pre USB deliver loads of pristine gain and vanishingly low noise. In addition, these preamps include Focusrite’s proprietary Air feature that switches in an analog model of Focusrite’s acclaimed classic transformer-based ISA mic pre, breathing life into your recordings. If you’ve always wanted vocals that shimmer with presence and silky air, then try recording with the Clarett 8Pre USB. You will be impressed.


The cleanest way yet to get sound in and out of your DAW

Sweetwater engineers know that conversion is key to superior digital audio, and Clarett features Focusrite’s class-leading 24-bit/192kHz conversion. Offering up to 118dB of dynamic range, Clarett is the cleanest way to get sound in and out of your DAW. And naturally, the Clarett 8Pre USB includes a word clock output for slaving external digital devices.

Generous I/O to handle any recording scenario

The Focusrite Clarett 8Pre USB gives you 18 audio inputs and 20 outputs packed into a trim 1U rackmount chassis. This includes eight analog inputs, ten analog outputs, stereo S/PDIF I/O, and eight channels of ADAT I/O. The ADAT output is perfect for sending audio to an external D/A for line output expansion, while the input can be used to bring in eight additional digital mic preamp channels, such as the Focusrite OctoPre MkII, for maximum flexibility. In addition, two front-panel mic/line/instrument inputs give you quick and easy access — even when you’ve got your Clarett rack mounted. And those hi-Z inputs have copious headroom to handle your guitars and basses with hot passive or active pickups.


Accessible metering and monitoring

Featuring a 6-segment, multichannel LED meter, the Clarett 8Pre USB’s monitor panel keeps you informed of analog and digital input levels and main monitor outputs. Monitoring facilities include a level control, as well as dim and mute buttons. Add to that two wide dynamic range front-panel headphone outputs with enough power to deliver healthy level to high-impedance headphones, and the Clarett becomes your go-to device for tracking and mixing.


Focusrite Control software

Your Clarett 8Pre USB comes with Focusrite Control, a software mixer that makes short work of configuring your monitoring and routing setups from Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Simple and intuitive to use, Focusrite Control offers an easy-to-grasp traditional mixer workflow and gives you immediate access to internal hardware functions.
