Expand the capabilities of your digital interface with the Scarlett OctoPre. This powerful 8-channel ADAT expansion unit is a simple and easy way of increasing the number of simultaneous recording channels available in your studio. With eight channels of Focusrite's 2nd generation Scarlett preamps and precision A-D conversion at sample rates up to 192 kHz, you can be guaranteed optimal audio quality for your recording and performance needs.

World class preamps

Eight organic-sounding second generation Scarlett mic/line inputs deliver high headroom, masses of clean gain and low noise coupled with minimal distortion. This makes the Scarlett OctoPre ideal for tracking drums as well guitars, keyboards, vocals, infact practically anything.

Clean and clear operation

The front panel features two newly-designed instrument inputs with an extended amount of headroom. The universal ADAT outputs let you connect to any interface or digital system with ADAT optical inputs, and analogue line outputs let you feed an analogue console at the same time as recording with the digital outputs.

For metering, the Scarlett OctoPre utilises a highly-accurate 5-segment LED input meter so you can keep an eye on your recording levels making easy work of balancing signals. Whether you're recording a full band or an orchestra, a vocal group or just about anything else, the Focusrite Scarlett OctoPre is an excellent choice for expanding your capabilities.
