The new Focusrite Clarett OctoPre is a very versatile 8-Channel Mic Preamp delivering 24-bit / 192kHz A-D and D-A with eight pro-quality Microphone Preamplifiers, and eight line outputs, making this new product ideal for expanding your current computer audio interface via ADAT I/O.

Thanks to its many inputs also great if you want to use your current audio interface for drums, as it has plenty of inputs for this job!

Focusrite OctoPre: Make The Most Out Of Your Focusrite Clarett Interface

Clarett OctoPre is a mic preamp extension with added 'Air': it provides eight specially-designed Clarett mic pres and 24-bit, 192 kHz A-D and D-A conversion that can be used to extend the capabilities of a Clarett interface – or any other interface fitted with ADAT optical inputs and outputs.

In addition to the mic pres there are eight channels of D-A conversion providing eight analogue outputs.

The eight mic pres feature automatic mic/line switching inputs and two front-panel instrument inputs. Designed specifically for the Clarett range, they offer plenty of gain, yet low noise and distortion - and great sound quality.

They also include a special “Air” feature that switches in an analogue model of the classic transformer-based Focusrite ISA mic pre, switching the impedance of the preamp to that of the original ISA and enabling a ‘transformer resonance effect’, giving  microphone sources the air and clarity of an ISA transformer-based mic pre recording.

In addition, the mic pres have plenty of headroom and are ideal for recording drums and other extreme level sources.

The front panel instrument inputs feature extra headroom to handle high-output pickups, while the rear panel includes universal XLR/jack connectors for the remaining auto-switching mic/line inputs.

In addition, each input has its own switched insertion point for single-cable connection of compression, equalisation and other outboard analogue processing - with hard-wired relay bypass, so you can leave outboard gear or a patchbay connected ready to access at the press of a button.

The inputs drive eight channels of precision 24-bit Focusrite A-D with 118dB dynamic range and standard sample rates up to 192kHz.

In addition to providing eight mic pres, the Clarett OctoPre offers D-A conversion (from the ADAT inputs, with 119dB dynamic range) of up to eight channels, making it perfect for mixing as well as tracking.

The outputs appear on a 25-pin DSUB connector with standard wiring. The line outputs can optionally provide line level output feeds from the mic pres – useful for feeding a live console, for example, while recording the digital outputs. Aside from the insert point, the Clarett OctoPre is balanced end-to-end for maximum noise immunity.
