Focusrites deep understanding of what producers and home recording folks need are never better exemplified than with their range of ADAT expandable interfaces. Whether you need specific expansion to record those drums or an ensemble of musicians the Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic gets the job done with the least fuss and effort possible

With 8 Scarlett 2nd generation Mic Pres and 192 kHz A-D and D-A conversion, your Scarlett interface can be transformed from simple home studio set-up to a fully functional pro recording rig. The Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic will expand any ADAT optical interface fitted unit. There are also an additional 8 channels of digital to analogue conversion providing 8 analogue outputs.

Compression per channel

Each of the 2nd Generation Scarlett PreAmps has a soft-knee VCA compressor with an easy to use single dial knob on each channel. There is a transparent mode for subtle compression and a more button that doubles the ratio for compression with effect.

Front and Rear Inputs

The rear panel instrument inputs feature extra headroom to handle high-output pickups, while the rear panel also includes universal XLR/jack connectors The inputs drive eight channels of precision Focusrite A-D with 109dB dynamic range and standard sample rates up to 192kHz.

Wordclock, Phantom Power and LED display

Scarlett OctoPre provides rock-solid, super stable clocking performance with word clock I/O for synchronisation with other studio equipment. Switched in two groups (1-4 and 5-8), every channel is capable of supplying phantom power for use with condenser microphones. Scarlett Octopre has a 5 segment LED. Scarlett Octopre's fast-acting input meters provide clear reference of input levels, helping you to avoid analogue or digital clipping.
