Focusrite’s Clarett+ 8Pre 18-in/20-out audio interface is a powerful foundation for your studio or mobile recording rig. It sports eight great-sounding Clarett+ microphone preamplifiers, an outstanding dynamic range, and ultra-fast, low-latency performance enabled by USB-C. The magic starts as soon as you plug your microphones in — the mic preamps feature Focusrite’s switchable Air effect, which gives your microphones the air and clarity of an ISA transformer-based mic preamp. With comprehensive connectivity including analog I/O, S/PDIF, and ADAT I/O, the Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre is ready to integrate into virtually any recording rig.

Outstanding versatility, speed, and sonic performance

The Clarett+ 8Pre’s eight newly designed mic preamps deliver a truly impressive dynamic range. Perfect for your studio or mobile recording rig, the Clarett+ 8Pre gives you a wealth of connectivity — including ADAT and MIDI I/O — all in a sleek 1U form factor. With its sonic performance, leading edge round-trip audio latency and ease of use, the Clarett+ 8 Pre is an excellent choice of interface.

Eight Clarett+ mic preamps with Air effect

Focusrite fitted the Clarett+ 8Pre with mic preamps that were designed exclusively for the Clarett+ range with loads of pristine gain and vanishingly low noise. In addition, these preamps include Focusrite’s proprietary Air feature that switches in an analog model of Focusrite’s acclaimed classic transformer-based ISA mic pre, breathing life into your recordings. If you’ve always wanted vocals that shimmer with presence and silky air, then try recording with the Clarett+ 8Pre. You will be impressed!

The cleanest way yet to get sound in and out of your DAW

Engineers know that conversion is key to superior digital audio, and every Clarett+ features the latest in Focusrite’s class-leading 24-bit/192kHz conversion. Offering an expanded dynamic range and higher signal-to-noise ratio than previous models, the Clarett+ is the cleanest way to get sound in and out of your DAW.

Generous I/O to handle any recording scenario

The Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre gives you 18 audio inputs and 20 outputs packed into a trim 1U rackmount chassis. This includes eight analog inputs, ten analog outputs, stereo S/PDIF I/O, and eight channels of ADAT I/O. The ADAT output is perfect for sending audio to an external D/A for line output expansion, while the input can be used to bring in eight additional digital mic preamp channels, such as the Focusrite OctoPre MkII, for maximum flexibility. In addition, two front-panel mic/line/instrument inputs give you quick and easy access — even when you’ve got your Clarett+ rack mounted. And those hi-Z inputs have copious headroom to handle your guitars and basses with hot passive or active pickups.

Intuitive and easy-to-use software mixer

Your Clarett+ comes with Focusrite Control, a brand-new software mixer that makes short work of configuring your monitoring and routing setups. Simple and intuitive to use, Focusrite Control offers an easy-to-grasp traditional mixer workflow and gives you immediate access to dim, mute, and other internal hardware functions.
