Focusrite's Clarett OctoPre provides eight specially-designed Claret mic Press and 24-bit, 192 kHz A-D and D-A conversion that can be used to extend the capabilities of a Clarett interface - or any other interface fitted with ADAT optical inputs and outputs. In addition to the mic Press, there are eight channels of D-A conversion providing eight analog outputs. The eight mic Press feature automatic mic/line switching inputs and two front-panel instrument inputs. Designed specifically for the Clarett range, they offer plenty of gain, yet low noise and distortion - and great sound quality. They also include a special “Air” feature that switches in an analog model of the classic transformer-based Focus rite ISA mic pre, switching the impedance of the preamp to that of the original ISA and enabling a ‘transformer resonance effect’, giving microphone sources the air and clarity of an ISA transformer-based mic pre recording. In addition, the mic Press have plenty of headroom and are ideal for recording drums and other extreme level sources. The front panel instrument inputs feature extra headroom to handle high-output pickups, while the rear panel includes universal XLR/jack connectors for the remaining auto-switching mic/line inputs. In addition, each input has its own switched insertion point for single-cable connection of compression, equalization and other outboard analog processing - with hard-wired relay bypass, so you can leave outboard gear or a patch bay connected ready to access at the Press of a button. The inputs drive eight channels of precision 24-bit Focus rite A-D with 118dB dynamic range and standard sample rates up to 192kHz. Clarett OctoPre also offers D-A conversion (from the ADAT inputs, with 119dB dynamic range) of up to eight channels, making it perfect for mixing as well as tracking. The line outputs can optionally provide line level output feeds from the mic Press - useful for feeding a live console while recording the digital outputs.
