Focusrite Thunderbolt Audio Interface

The Focusrite Clarett 4 Pre Thunderbolt Audio Interface is packed with all the latest Thunderbolt technology that provides impressive speed and high-audio quality with an incredibly low-latency of less than 1ms. With sample rates of 24bit/192kHz, this 4 channel audio interface is ideal for recording guitar and vocals and gives you top class sound.

The four brand new Clarett microphone preamps featured on the Clarett 4 pre replicate the impedance and transformer resonance of the classic ISA, delivering exceptional clarity, along with iconic sound for which Focusrite is known. With best-in-class dynamic range, you can be sure to enjoy crystal clear conversion in this compact and lightweight unit. 

Focusrite has now added support for PCs with the release of the Clarett Windows driver. This new driver allows you to run the Clarett interfaces with your Thunderbolt-equipped Windows computer. The driver delivers identical functionality to that experienced on a Mac system, allowing you to enjoy the sub 3 milliseconds round trip latency and the reliable and stable operation experienced by Mac users. The ultra-low latency performance allows you to record and monitor your music projects in real-time for optimal audio performance. The driver also supports Focusrite Control - the mixer software from Focusrite designed for easy configuration of monitoring and routing setups (which is now available for Windows). Additionally, future iterations of the Windows driver will add support for Thunderbolt 3 Type C connectivity and the range of Red interfaces.

Featuring XLR/TRS combination jacks to the front of the unit the Clarett 4 Pre can be connected to 4 microphones, 4 instruments or a 2 microphone and 2 instrument simultaneously for versatile recording scenarios. Whether a singer songwriter seeking a high quality audio interface with revolutionary microphone preamps or a guitarist looking for a portable and reliable audio interface the Clarett 4 Pre has you covered.

With four line inputs and outputs the Focusrite Clarett can be connected to studio monitors and outboard gear to provide integration into any set-up. Additionally a high power headphone outputs located at the front of the unit is perfect for tracking and mixing.

Focusrite Control is a brand new software mixer designed for easy configuration of monitoring and routing setups. Simple and intuitive to use, Focusrite Control also allows immediate access to internal hardware functions.
