Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre Rackmount 18x20 USB Type-C Audio/MIDI Interface


Equally comfortable in the studio or as part of a mobile rig, the Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre rackmount 18x20 USB Type-C audio/MIDI interface combines upgraded 24-bit / 192 kHz AD/DA conversion with low-latency monitoring and eight Air-enabled microphone preamps that can model the sound of the company's classic ISA preamps. With low noise (-129 dB EIN), massive dynamic range, and even less distortion than before, the high-performance mic preamps deliver a clean, open, and transparent sound, for accurate reproduction of the original performance. In addition to the eight mic/line preamps (two with Hi-Z capability), the interface offers ADAT and S/PDIF I/O for digital input and output expansion, MIDI I/O for integration of MIDI equipment such as a keyboard or drum machine, and a BNC wordclock output for syncing other digital gear. Stereo monitor outputs, two headphone outs, and eight line outputs let you properly hook up monitors, headphones, and outboard processors. The Clarett+ 8Pre includes a software package featuring Focusrite Red plug-ins and a channel strip that accurately models the rare Focusrite Studio Console. Also provided is the Focusrite Control software that enables you to configure routing and monitor mixes from Mac and Windows computers, or iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch mobile devices.

Independent A/D and D/A converters bring you closer than ever to your music and let you hear the truth, whether you're in the studio or on the road. Greatly improved D/A dynamic range enables you to hear every detail and have greater control over your mix. Lower A/D converter distortion lets you capture signals with more clarity, for greater transparency and sonic accuracy. With its 1 RU size, USB Type-C connectivity, and AC powering (via the included power cable), the Clarett+ 8Pre is well suited for bands, project studios, and large home setups in need of plenty of analog and digital I/O in a rackmountable form factor. Capture more detail than ever before; the carefully engineered design means the Clarett+ 8Pre gives you stunning results. At a class-leading 124 dB dynamic range, the ultralow-noise 24-bit / 192 kHz converters give your recordings clarity and nuance.
