The Focusrite Clarett 4Pre 18x8 Thunderbolt audio interface offers up to 119 dB dynamic range, superbly low noise, precision 24-bit/192 kHz conversion, four specially-designed microphone preamplifiers with a unique analog "Air" effect and more. This interface not only sounds good, but it works fast too with its incredibly low 1.38 ms round-trip latency, so your workflow is simplified while allowing you to use your favorite plugins in real time.

Four Clarett Mic Pres with Extra "Air"
The mic pres found in this interface have been specially designed 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 analog model of the classic transformer-based Focusrite ISA mic pro. The instrument inputs also feature extra headroom to handle even the loudest of pickups.

Precision Digital Conversion
Clarett features Focusrite's outstanding 24-bit/192 kHz conversion with up to 119 dB of dynamic range offering an incredibly clean signal path into and out of your DAW.

Easy Access
All four mic/line/instrument inputs are on the front panel for instant, easy access. Plus, the 4Pre's compact form factor makes it ideal for use on the road as well as in the studio.

Simplifying The Way You Work
Clarett's ultra-low round-trip latency will help increase your workflow efficiency. If you're used to having to build two different mixes – one using input monitoring to overdub, the other using the DAW for playback – the good news is that with the Clarett 4Pre, one mix is enough. Build your mix on the DAW and use it whether you're overdubbing (monitoring the input you're recoding with the new Focusrite Control software mixer) or playing back, with all your plugins in place, all the time. Use your favorite pluings while recording too – whether it's reverb on a vocal, a guitar amp simulator, or even virtual instruments live on stage.

Intuitive, Easy-to-Use Software Mixer and Plugins
The Focusrite Control software mixer is designed for easy configuration of monitoring and routing setups. Simple and intuitive to use, Focusrite Control offers a traditional mixer workflow and allows immediate access to internal hardware functions. Also included is a sweet-sounding plugin collection comprising Softube's world-class Time and Tone Bundle wiht TSAR-1R Reverb, Tube Delay, and Saturation Knob. This is complemented by the Red 2 & Red 3 AAX, AU, and VST plugin suite, which accurately models Focusrite's classic Red range equalizer and compressor hardware.

Gain Haloes Help Keep Levels in Check
Each of the four front panel inputs includes Focusrite's signature "Gain Halo" – an illuminated ring around the gain control that lights up green when there's signal and red when it's too high. There's a main monitor knob plus dual high-power headphone outputs with their own volume controls.

Plenty of Ins and Outs
Clarett 4Pre offers a full 18 audio inputs and eight outputs, including four front-panel multi-function inputs, four independent line inputs and line outputs, stereo S/PDIF I/O and dual headphone outputs. There are also eight channels of ADAT-format digital input – ideal for adding eight channels of digital mic pre.

Remote control from iPhone or iPad

Now Windows Compatible
