Description
Written by

Will Brook-Jones

The Clarett+ 8Pre builds on the solid foundations of its earlier predecessor - delivering a premium-grade USB audio interface for Mac and PC. With updated clean, minimalist visuals, alongside an exciting range of improvements under the hood, the Clarett+ 8Pre is a high-quality option for your studio space. 

Key Features 

  • x8 Clarett+ preamps offering high performance, low distortion, low noise and lots of headroom
  • Fitted with two ultra-high impedance JFET instrument inputs, featuring mimic guitar amp inputs and a seriously broad audio bandwidth
  • Relay-controlled analogue circuitry on each preamp replicates Focusrite's ISA110, swapping impedance to to 2.2kΩ, with the addition of two cumulative high shelves (granting a 4dB increase in higher frequencies)
  • Refined A-D and D-A converters characterised by low distortion, high dynamic range, low noise and high performance for precise mixes
  • Two enhanced headphone outputs deliver flat frequency response at every output level - no matter your choice of headphones
  • An ADAT optical input lets you use your interface alongside ADAT-compatible outboard gear 
  • Use alongside Focusrite Control - simple (yet deep) software for Mac, PC and iOS
  • Register your product and access the Focusrite Plug-in Collective for free monthly plug-ins and discounts 
  • Comes with a bundle of quality virtual instruments, mixing plug-ins and recording software 

Focusrite // Recording with Clarett+

For Engineers, Artists & Producers 

Wherever you sit on the creative spectrum, this audio interface will fulfil all of your audio-based requirements. Capture crisp vocals, the nuances of acoustic instruments and powerful drums with unrivalled clarity thanks to eight Clarett+ mic preamps. 

These boast all-analogue Air - augmented with relay control and impedance switching - delivering recordings with low noise, low distortion and high headroom. They're joined by two JFET instrument inputs which manage to maintain the authentic tone of your guitar. 

Updates & Improvements 

You'll experience accurate recordings too. This is all thanks to independent A-D and D-A converters. The reduced A-D converter distortion offers better transparency, as well as signals with more clarity, while the tweaked D-A dynamic range generates more sonic detail than ever before.
