Clarett OctoPre 

8-channel, 24-bit / 192kHz A-D and D-A w/ 8 Microphone Preamplifiers with added 'Air', and 8 line outputs for expanding computer audio interfaces via ADAT I/O

If you’ve been wishing you could expand your current Clarett setup … well, stop wishing! The new Focusrite Clarett OctoPre gives you 8-channels with 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, 8 mic preamplifiers and 8 analog line outputs. These great-sounding Clarett mic preamps include Focusrite's switchable 'Air' effect, that emulates the sound of Focusrite’s ISA range transformer-based mic pre's.* 

The eight mic pre’s feature automatic mic/line switching inputs plus two front-panel instrument inputs. Designed specifically for the Clarett range, they offer plenty of gain (great for recording drums and other extreme-level sources), with very low noise and distortion - and outstanding Focusrite sound quality. In addition to the mic pres there are eight channels of D-A conversion providing eight analogue outputs. 

The rear panel includes universal XLR/jack connectors for the remaining auto-switching mic/line inputs. Each input also has its own switched insertion point for outboard processors (compression, EQ, etc.) with hard-wired relay bypass, so you can leave outboard gear or a patchbay plugged in, ready to add at the press of a button.  

* The Air feature switches in an analog model of the classic transformer-based Focusrite ISA mic pre, switching the impedance of the preamp to that of the original ISA and enabling “transformer resonance effect”, giving microphone sources the air and clarity of a transformer-based mic pre.
