Focusrite Clarett+ OctoPre is the eight-channel ADAT preamp for both the aspiring and established engineer. Eight high headroom, low noise and low distortion Clarett+ preamps featuring all-analog Air with relay-controlled circuitry capture drums, vocals and acoustic instruments with superb clarity. Two JFET instrument inputs capture the true characteristics of guitars, just like plugging into an amp.
- Get the classic Focusrite sound with all-analog Air – Get closer to the origins of Focusrite with premium, relay-controlled analog 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 2.2kΩ and adds two cumulative high shelves, totaling a 4dB boost in the high frequencies.
- Capture the truest version of your sound with Clarett+ mic pres – Achieve clear recordings in any session. With 118dB of dynamic range and 129dBu EIN, the natural sound of source signals is preserved. The fully balanced signal path ensures inbound signals are clean and with ultra-low noise, giving sessions the professional Focusrite sound.
