Focusrite Clarett+ OctoPre 8-channel ADAT Preamp
clear + open + transparent sound
The Focusrite Clarett+ OctoPre is a premium 8-channel microphone preamp and converter. It is designed for the expansion of ADAT-enabled audio interfaces and meets even the highest demands for transmission quality and signal fidelity. A special feature of the Clarett+ OctoPre is the well-known AIR function. When AIR is engaged the Clarett+ OctoPre switches impedance to 2.2kΩ and adds two cumulative high shelves, totalling a 4dB boost in the high frequencies, which recreates the sound of the classic Focusrite ISA 110. This captures transients on drums, makes vocals shine, and ensures a precise, clear recording.
The Classic Focusrite Sound with All-Analogue Air
Get closer to the origins of Focusrite with premium relay-controlled analogue circuitry on every preamp that emulates the classic Focusrite ISA 110, as featured on the original Focusrite Studio Console. When Air is engaged, it switches the impedance to 2.2 kilohms and adds two cumulative high shelves, totalling a 4 dB boost in the high frequencies.
Capture your Best Sound with Clarett+ Mic Pre
Achieve clear recordings in any session. With 118 dB of dynamic range and 129 dBu EIN, the natural sound of source signals is preserved. The fully balanced signal path ensures inbound signals are clean and with ultralow noise—giving sessions the professional Focusrite sound.
Plugged in and ready to rock
Each channel of the Clarett+ OctoPre is equipped with a dedicated insert that lets you keep your favourite rack equipment plugged in and ready to track through. This flexible insert setup reduces the need for a patchbay as inserts are switchable — so you spend less time reaching around the rear of the unit.
