Focusrite Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic Microphone Preamp (2nd Gen)
Expand your studio with eight mic/line inputs, eight line outputs, Focusrite precision conversion up to 192 kHz AD/DA and analogue compression on every channel. Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic is the ideal way of adding eight extra mic/line inputs to your DAW. It also offers eight balanced line outputs, sourced directly from their respective mic preamps for use on stage in a live environment.
2nd Generation Preamp with VCA Compression
Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic lets you control the dynamics of all your input signals with an easy-to-use single-knob analogue compressor on every channel. There's a transparent mode for subtle compression plus a "More" button that doubles the ratio for compression with effect.
Expanding your live and studio recording capabilities is easier than ever with Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic.
Scarlett 2nd Generation mic preamps
The latest Scarlett mic preamp features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned so it can handle seriously hot pickups for recording electric guitars and drums. These industry-leading preamps deliver high headroom, plenty of clean gain, low noise and minimal distortion. The front panel features two newly-designed instrument inputs with extended headroom.
24-bit/96kHz digital ADAT output
Meanwhile, the eight balanced outputs give you the option of expanding your analogue outputs over and above the Scarlett OctoPre. This makes the Octopre perfect for live environments, where clean signal and direct-thru inputs are essential for capturing the magic of your live show.
Word Clock In and Out
Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic also features State-of-the-art digital clocking with Word Clock I/O, making synchronization with external devices easy.
Focusrite was created in 1985, when console design legend Rupert Neve was approached by Sir George Martin to create new modules for the AIR Studios consoles. The resulting ISA (Input Signal Amplifier) modules formed the foundation for 30 years of microphone preamp and signal processing development – from the ISA One to the Liquid Channel, and the legendary Focusrite Heritage Sound that lies behind hundreds of hits from the world’s leading studios.
Make that sound your own with the new Scarlett OctoPre – a classic in the making.
