Upgrade your studio with the Clarett+ 8Pre from Focusrite is an audio interface that gives you clear, and accurate sound. Ideal for musicians and content creators, this professional-caliber interface features 18 inputs and 20 outputs for easy connectivity. Its included software plugins make it effortless to personalize your sound.

This audio interface boasts 8 built-in Clarett+ mic preamps which include All-Analogue Air with impedance switching and relay control. These preamps make it possible to expertly capture recordings with high headroom, low distortion, and ultra-low noise. In addition, the Clarett+ 8Pre includes 2 JFET instrument inputs, so musicians can simply plug and play as if connecting their instrument to an amplifier.

The Clarett+ 8Pre comes with independent A-D and D-A converters. The AD converter boasts lowered distortion so your signals are transparent and achieve pristine sonic accuracy. Meanwhile, the D-A converter’s enhanced dynamic range lets you hear every detail of your audio and delivers heightened control over your mix. Also included with this audio interface are 2 headphone outputs that allow you to hear every aspect of your sound, whether you’re mixing, performing, or polishing your final product.

Take your music to the next level without compromising on clarity or analog quality. The Clarett+ 8Pre can be expanded using ADAT to add 8 inputs and outputs via the Clarett OctoPre. It can also be connected to MIDI and S/PDIF gear to optimize your creative potential and more fully integrate the interface into your setup. (All external gear sold separately.)

Gain access to all the tools you need in one audio interface. The Clarett+ 8Pre delivers studio-quality vocals, guitars, keys, and drums—and then gives you the benefits of Focusrite’s iconic studio hardware all in one piece of gear, including three classic processors that inherit Focusrite’s decades-long legacy of precision studio sound.

This audio interface’s studio-caliber tools such as Hitmaker Expansion plugins (including Antares®, along with Brainworx®, Softube®, XLN Audio®, Relab, and more) make it easier than ever to write, produce, mix, and master your music. Enjoy Focusrite’s renowned Red range equalizer and compressor hardware with the onboard Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite.
