Modern preamp, Classic Heritage:
The brand new Clarett mic preamp replicates the impedance and transformer resonance of the original ISAs, an incredibly popular and well respected unit, resulting in exceptional clarity and the signature sound for which Focusrite has become famous.

Crystal clear conversion:
As you’d expect from a company this passionate about sound, Focusrite's Clarett interfaces offer crystal clear conversion with 24bit, 192 kHz sample rates and best-in-class dynamic range.

Control your recording:
The Clarett 8 Pre X gives you 4 controls for each seperate channel (Volume, Low Cut, Phase and Phantom Power). The front panel has lights for

Speed of Sound:
The upgrade to Thunderbolt unlocks the real-time processing power of your DAW and makes the new Focusrite Clarett range the best-sounding, lowest latency interfaces in their class. They won’t let you down in the studio with latency of under 1ms.

Included Software:
The Clarett 8 Pre X comes with a load of free software to help you produce great sounds. The Red Plug-in Suite recreates Focusrite's classic Red 2 Equalizer and Red 3 Compressor to provide you with clear, detailed and dynamic sound for excellent tonal control of your mix.

Also included is the Softube Time and Tone bundle which contains four plug-ins for adding effects or adjusting your mix. The TSAR-1R Reverb and Tube Delay are versatile effects that can be taken from natural and realistic to huge, dramatic sounds. The Drawmer S73 Intelligent Master Processor is an enhanced multi-band compressor and the Saturation Knob is a simple plug-in for adding modelled distortion for a grittier and warmer sound.

With the Clarett 8 Pre X you get Ableton Live Lite, the lightweight version of one of the most popular digital audio workstations (DAW) around. Live Lite gives you a simple DAW to get started making music and you can use it with the included XLN Audio Addictive Keys and Loopmasters. Addictive Keys is a virtual instrument that provides sampled piano sounds with impressive tweaking options. With Loopmasters you get access to a 2GB library of royalty-free samples to use as inspiration takes you.

On top of this you can download Focusrite Control to, as the name suggests, control your your Focusrite interface from your PC, Mac, or iOS device!

You'll also be able to take advantage of the Focusrite Plugin Collective. Every few months you'll be able to download free versions of innovative software as well as receive discounts exclusive to Focusrite customers. Find out more here.

Brainworx bx_console Plugin:
Focusrite Clarett interfaces now come with the bx_console plugin designed DSP developers Brainworx! This Focusrite VST/AU/AAX plug-in for Mac and PC recreates the sound of the classic Focusrite ISA 110 Equaliser and ISA 130 Dynamics Modules to bring some analogue character to your productions.

2 year warranty:
All Focusrite products come with a 24 month warranty from the point of purchase, if bought after October 2016.
