Designed primarily for permanent studio installation, Focusrite’s 26-in, 28-out Clarett 8PreX combines eight mic preamps, class-leading digital conversion and extra-low round-trip latency – enabling DAW plugins to be used while monitoring recordings. Clarett’s specially designed mic pre offers superbly low noise and distortion, plus the “Air” effect that models the sound of Focusrite’s renowned ISA transformer-based preamps.
With extraordinarily low round-trip audio latency over Thunderbolt, you can record and monitor with your favourite DAW plugins, in real time. No need for add-in DSP or special processing - choose any of your plugins, from virtually any manufacturer, to create the perfect recording path on every channel - as well as custom monitor setups for both you and your artists.
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. Instrument inputs feature extra headroom to handle the loudest pickup.
Clarett features Focusrite’s class-leading 24/192 conversion quality: with up to 119dB dynamic range, Clarett offers the cleanest way yet to get music in and out of your DAW.
Specially designed for studio installation, Clarett 8PreX includes separate rear panel inputs for mic, line and instrument, as well as ADAT I/O to add 16 more channels, dedicated phantom power, phase reverse and high pass filters on every channel.
