The Focusrite Clarett+ OctoPre is an eight-channel ADAT preamp designed for both aspiring and experienced engineers. Eight Clarett+ preamps with high headroom, low noise, and low distortion — incorporating All-analogue Air with relay-controlled circuitry — record percussion, voices, and acoustic instruments with exceptional clarity. Two JFET instrument inputs, similar to plugging into an amp, capture the real features of guitars.

Great-quality A-D/D-A converters provide high dynamic range, ultra-low noise, and ultra-low distortion, perfect for studio tracking sessions. When transferring audio to analogue compressors, EQs, and effects, exceptional D-A conversion guarantees that audio quality is retained.

Add the Clarett+ OctoPre to a 2Pre, 4Pre, or 8Pre to quickly and reliably increase your I/O through ADAT, allowing you to record a full band while keeping analogue purity and clarity and bringing the original Focusrite Studio Console sound to your recordings.

Get the classic Focusrite sound with All-analogue Air

With quality, relay-controlled analogue circuitry on every preamp that emulates the legendary Focusrite ISA 110, as found on the original Focusrite Studio Console, it's now even easier to get closer to the origin of the Focusrite sound. When Air is activated, the impedance is changed to 2.2k and two more high shelves are added, giving a total of a 4dB increase in the high frequencies.

Capture the truest version of your sound with Clarett+ Mic Pre

In any session, get clear records. The natural sound of source signals is retained with a dynamic range of 118dB and an EIN of 129dBu. Inbound signals are clean with low-noise thanks to the completely balanced signal route, giving sessions the renowned Focusrite sound.

Stay plugged in with inserts on every channel

The eight dedicated channel inserts in Clarett+ OctoPre enable you to trace through your favourite outboard and capture its unique character. With our versatile insert design, you can easily add analogue equipment to the signal stream.

Enhanced A-D converters

With confidence, multitrack and manage any recording session. Clarett+ OctoPre's A-D converter, along with the powerful preamps, provides professional-sounding recordings suitable for mixing with ultra-low noise and distortion.

Preserve your signature style

Clarett+ OctoPre's superior D-A conversion enables engineers to process audio in their own unique way while remaining certain that audio quality is retained when transferring audio to analogue compressors, EQs, and effects. Send 16 channels to a mixer by connecting a Clarett+ OctoPre to a Clarett+ 8Pre via ADAT.

Premium-quality audio over ADAT

Connect Clarett+ OctoPre to a 2Pre, 4Pre, or 8Pre to effortlessly and reliably increase your I/O through ADAT. By connecting to an ADAT-enabled interface and benefiting from the premium quality provided by Clarett+ OctoPre, non-Clarett+ users may upgrade to a professional level and bring the traditional Focusrite sound to their recordings.

Maintain your guitar's natural tone

With Clarett+ OctoPre's JFET guitar inputs, you can capture the genuine characteristics of guitars. Wide input bandwidth keeps high frequencies pure and makes it seem like you're plugged right into an amp.
