Focusrite Clarett OctoPre - 8 Channel Mic Pre and AD/DA Converter

8 Channels of Clarett Mic Preamps with 'Air' plus pristine 24-bit / 192 kHz digital conversion

The Focusrite Clarett OctoPre is an eight-channel pre-amplifier for use with microphone, line and instrument input signals that features 8 Clarett Mic Pres with extra 'Air'. It converts the inputs into multi-channel, 24-bit digital audio at sample rates up to 192 kHz. Both analogue and digital outputs are provided: the digital outputs are in ADAT format on optical TOSLINK connectors, which can be easily routed to ADAT inputs on your studio recording system, or any other ADAT-equipped interface using optical cables. The Clarett OctoPre can transmit and receive eight channels of audio at sample rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, or 96 kHz, or four channels at 176.4 or 192 kHz.

A switchable analogue INSERT function is provided on each input channel to permit the connection of external processors such as compressors or noise gates.

The OctoPre is an ideal “expansion” unit for adding eight more inputs to an existing audio interface such as other members of the Focusrite Clarett range.

The Clarett OctoPre is a bidirectional unit: it is also equipped with ADAT format digital inputs and balanced analogue outputs. It incorporates an ADAT-to-LINE mode, making it the perfect interface for routing tracks from your DAW to an analogue mixing console.

The Clarett OctoPre can be easily synchronized with other items of digital audio equipment in your studio, either as a slave to an external word clock signal, or by acting as the master clock source itself.

An important feature of all models in the Clarett range is the new design of analogue preamplifier. In addition to their class-leading dynamic range and ability to provide all the gain you’re ever likely to need, the circuitry now includes the Focusrite AIR function. Individually selectable on each channel, AIR subtly modifies the pre-amp’s frequency response to model the impedance and resonance characteristics of Focusrite’s classic transformer-based ISA mic preamps. When recording with good quality microphones, you will notice an enhanced clarity and definition in the impo
