Focusrite has expanded its USB audio interface range with the Clarett+ OctoPre, which builds on the Clarett OctoPre with improved converters and professional-quality mic preamps.

Focusrite Clarett+ OctoPreThe Clarett+ OctoPre adds eight high-quality mic preamps or line-ins/outs to any Adat-equipped recording interface. Upgraded AD/DA converter chips ensure higher dynamic range, an ultra-low noise floor and ultra-low distortion as compared to the original OctoPre. One way Focusrite has achieved this is by focusing on the components that affect recording quality the most: the converter chips and microphone preamps.

Eight flexible channel inserts enable use of outboard processing. Connecting Clarett+ OctoPre to a Clarett+ 8Pre via Adat provides 16 channels for recording. Additionally,

all-analogue circuitry with relay control emulates the extremely transparent ISA 110 mic preamp from the classic Focusrite Studio Console with an Air mode that switches the input impedance and adds two cumulative high shelves for up to a 4dB boost in the high frequencies.

The Clarett+ OctoPre also includes Focusrite’s Hitmaker Expansion Bundle, including the Softube Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555, Antares Auto-Tune Access, Brainworx bx_oberhausen and XLN Addictive Keys and Addictive Drums 2: Studio Rock Kit. Mixing and mastering are enhanced with classic studio tools like Relab LX480 Essentials, Focusrite Red 2 & 3 Plug-in Suite and the Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC and bx_masterdesk plug-ins. Further, the Focusrite Plug-in Collective allows users to get a new plug-in and exclusive offers from a new partner every few months.

The Focusrite Clarett+ OctoPre will ship with a US MAP of US$799.99.
