26 In / 28 Out Thunderbolt Audio Interface
Excellent sound is the quality Clarett owners love most. With up to 119dB dynamic range, superbly low noise, precision 24-bit/192kHz conversion and two specially designed mic preamps with a unique analogue Air effect, Clarett 8PreX simply sounds great, easily outperforming other interfaces in its class and beyond. Meanwhile, its 1.67 ms round-trip latency simplifies your workflow and lets you use your favourite plug-ins in real time.
The mic pres have been designed especially 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 analogue model of the classic transformer-based Focusrite ISA mic pre. The Instrument inputs also feature extra headroom to handle the loudest pickup. It’s the Focusrite sound over Thunderbolt™.
Decades of analogue circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path with 119dB dynamic range. Hear your music sound better than you've ever heard it sound before.
Clarett’s ultra-low round-trip latency completely transforms your workflow. Now you can get the most out of recording through your favourite amp sim and guitar effect plug-ins in real time.
