Focusrite have been breaking home recording ground for many years now but remain fresh in the minds of the domestic producer due to their constant innovation and modern design. The Scarlett series are almost a must have for the small studio/home recording artist but for those looking for more they have the Clarett range. These are a step above in terms of hardware, inputs, outputs and quality.

Pro Audio connectivity

The Focusrite Clarett 8 Pre USB Audio interface is one of the most connected and professional interfaces at any price point. With 8 XLR and 1/4" instrument inputs this is a perfect pro audio interface for recording and monitoring multiple musicians. Each XLR input has Phantom Power and each input can be monitored through the two available headphone monitors each with individual volume control. The inputs can also be dimmed or muted via the front panel LED.

Phantom Power, Air and Halos

Some features are just to good not too use across series of interfaces and gain halos and air are two such features. The gain halo is Focusrites simple yet elegant way of displaying where your gain dial is using a backlit LED. The Air feature converts the signal to a brighter sound by recreating the original Focusrite ISA PreAmp. Phantom Power is available for all 8 of the XLR inputs, meaning you can use your condenser mic with ease.

Max Headroom

In the past with USB Audio interfaces when you plugged high output guitars or analogue synths you would get clipping or distortion. The Focusrite Clarett series has a lot more headroom allowing for super hot pickups or higher voltage analogue synths. This feature is ideal for those wanting to record heavier music at home. Focusrite are consistently dedicated to the truest signal path. There is also a Word Clock Output for digital synchronisation with external devices.

Focused on quality

The Focusrite team are always looking to provide the best digital technology available for the best price. The Clarett 8 Pre USB Audio Interface has Ultra Low Noise -128 dB EIN Clarett PreAmps as well as Ultra Low Distortion dynamic range as discussed previously. Featuring 24-bit/192kHz AD-DA conversion for the truest signal path the Clarett 8 pre USB Audio Interface is the ideal step up in quality for the home recording enthusiast looking to make that leap into a more professional setup or simply someone looking for a high quality interface at a great price.

Expansion and software

The Focusrite Clarett 8 Pre USB Audio Interface has ADAT for expansion of upto 8 inputs using the Clarett OctPre. There is a plethora of software bundled with Clarett including Brainworx, XLN Audio, Ableton Live lite and many more. This is a top tier audio interface and bundled with so much software is an ideal upgrade tom your existing interface. Beautifully housed and finished in Focusrite classic metallic matte crimson this is a must have for the studio.
