Focusrite Clarett 8Prex Thunderbolt Audio Interface

$999.99

Better. Faster. Easier.

Excellent sound is the quality Clarett owners love most. With up to 119dB dynamic range, superbly low noise, precision 24/192 conversion and eight specially-designed mic preamps with a unique analogue “Air” effect, Clarett 8PreX is the Thunderbolt audio interface that simply sounds great, easily out-performing other interfaces in its class and beyond. Meanwhile, its astonishing 1.67ms round-trip latency* simplifies your workflow and lets you use your favourite plug-ins in real time.

Eight New Clarett Mic Pres with extra ‘Air’

The mic pres have been designed specifically for the Clarett range, with plenty of gain, yet low noise and distortion. They also 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. It’s the Focusrite Sound over Thunderbolt.

Accessible metering and monitoring

The monitor section provides a clear view of both analogue and digital input levels (selectable), as well as main monitor output levels via a 6-segment, multichannel hardware meter. Monitor features also include an assignable level control, plus back-lit dim and mute buttons, alongside dual high-power headphone outputs.

Exceptional I/O capability

Clarett 8PreX gives you all the I/O you need, fitting 26 audio inputs and 28 outputs into a 2U rack space, including 8 analogue inputs, 10 analogue outputs, stereo S/PDIF I/O and 16 channels of ADAT I/O. Connect up to 16 more mic preamps over ADAT for a 24-channel microphone setup. It’s the Thunderbolt audio interface for the user who demands the best sound quality over a high channel count.
