Details

The Focusrite Clarett 8 Pre X is a 26 x 28 Thunderbolt audio interface with the outstanding, superb sound and quality that Clarett owners have come to love most. This interface has a dynamic range of up to 119dB with an incredibly low noise, precision 24/192 conversion, with eight brand new, specially designed microphone preamps that have a unique analogue Air effect. This Thunderbolt audio interface has a quality sound, and will easy outperform any other audio interfaces in its class and beyond. The Clarett 8 Pre X has an astonishing 1.67 ms round trip latency to help simplify your workflow and enable the use you all your favourite plug-ins in real time.

Eight Brand New Clarett Mic Pres with Air effect

Focusrite has expressly designed eight brand new microphone preamps especially for the Clarett range of Thunderbolt audio interfaces. These mic pres have plenty of gains and yet are low noise and keep distortion to a minimum. They all come with the brand new AIR feature which enables you to switch in an analogue model of Focusrite's classic transformer-based ISA mic pre. They also have instrument inputs that feature extra headroom to cope with the loudest pickup.

Precise Digital Conversion

The Clarett range has Focusrite's class leading 24/192 conversion quality, with a dynamic range of up to 119dB to offer you the cleanest way of getting music in and out of you DAW (digital audio workstation).

Simplify the workflow

With the Clarett ranges ultra low, round trip latency will dramatically simply your workflow. Instead of having to create two different mixes, one using the monitoring to overdub and the other using the DAW for playback, with the clarett, you only have to build one. You can create you mix of the DAW and use this whether your overdubbing or playing back while the plug-ins will remain in place all the time. You will also be able to use all your plug-ins while recording, whether that's a reverb on vocals or a guitar amp simulator, or even using virtual instruments live on stage.

Heart of the studio

The Clarett 8 Pre X is specially designed for studio installation, as this soundcard includes separate rear panel inputs for mic, line, and instruments, with an ADAT I/O to add sixteen more channels with dedicated phantom power, high pass filters and phase reverse on every channel.

Easy to use software mixer with sweet sounding plugins

Focusrite has designed a brand new software mixer which has been created for easy configuration of monitoring and routing setups. It is very simple and intuitive and offers a traditional mixer workflow, which allows for instant access to the internal hardware functionality. Focusrite has also included a sweet sounding plug-in collection such as the world class soft tube time and tone pack, with the TSAR-1R reverb, tube delay, and saturation knob. All these are complimented by the RED 2 and 3 AAX, AU, VST plug-in suite, which is design to accurately model the classic RED range of equaliser and compressor hardware.

Metering and monitoring

The monitor section of this unit will provide you with a clear view of the selectable digital and analogue input levels, as well as the main monitor output levels via the six segment, multichannel hardware meter provided. The monitor function also gives you assignable level control, backlit dim and mute buttons all alongside the high power dual headphone outputs. 

Outstanding I/O capability

The Clarett 8 Pre X will give you all the I/O needed, with its 26 audio inputs and 28 audio outputs packed into a 2U rack space, which includes eight analogue inputs, ten analogue outputs, sixteen channels of ADAT I/O and Stereo S/ PDIF I/O. You can connect sixteen more mic preamps to this unit using its ADAT for a 24 channel microphone setup. It is also a Thunderbolt Audio Interface to provide you with the best sound quality possible over a high channel count.
