The Focusrite Clarret 8Pre is an 18-in, 20-out Thunderbolt interface that combines eight Clarett mic preamps with class-leading digital conversion and extraordinarily low round-trip latency – so low that you can use DAW plugins while monitoring a performance in real time.

The Clarett mic pre offers superbly low noise and distortion, plus the switchable "Air" effect models the sound of Focusrite's renowned ISA transformer-based preamps. Instrument inputs offer extended headroom to suit the loudest guitar pickup, while gain controls employ a special law that makes changes smoother and more precise.

The 1RU Clarett 8Pre includes combination mic/line/instrument inputs on the front panel. Also on the front panel are two independently-controlled headphone outputs with enough level to drive even high impedance headphones to provide suitable monitoring levels.

The Clarett 8Pre includes precision Focusrite digital audio conversion with up to 118dB (A/D) / 119dB (D/A) dynamic range. This is combined with a low round-trip latency, making it possible to monitor recordings in real time via effects plugins on the DAW such as reverberation for the best possible recording experience.

The metering and monitoring panel provides ten 6-segment LED meters covering analog and digital inputs and monitor levels, with a monitor level control knob plus mute and dim buttons.

Word Clock output is provided, allowing the Clarett 8Pre to provide the master clock for the system.

The Focusrite Control software mixer is easily configured for monitoring and routing setups. It offers a traditional mixer workflow and allows immediate access to internal hardware functions. Every Clarett includes the Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite, which accurately models Focusrite's classic Red range equalizer and compressor hardware. Every Clarett also includes the great-sounding Softube Time and Tone Bundle, which includes the TSAR-1R Reverb, Tube Delay, and Saturation Knob plugins. Thanks to the Red 2 & Red 3 Plugin Suite and the Time and Tone Bundle, you'll have a great set of tools for your audio production needs that will keep you coming back session after session.

Now Windows Compatible
The Clarett range is now fully compatible with Windows-based computers, offering stable, reliable operation with identical functionality on both platforms. The Windows driver offers sub-3ms latency. Also provided is a Windows version of the Focusrite Control software mixer for monitoring and routing configuration.
