Focusrite Clarett 8Pre X Thunderbolt Audio Interface


The Focusrite Clarett 8Pre X is a powerful 2U interface packed with eight fully-featured mic preamps, enough to get the whole band in one take in pristine 24bit/96kHz quality either in the studio or on location. With remarkable low-latency performance and extensive analog and digital I/O, the Focusrite Clarett range of Thunderbolt audio interfaces brings the sound of classic ISA mic preamps straight into your DAW. The switchable "Air Effect" for each mic preamp closely emulates the sound of transformer-coupled circuits to give a high frequency sheen and polish to your recordings right from the get-go, on the road or in the studio.

    Very easy to get it up and working. Haven't recorded anything yet since I have an RME FF802. I got this to extend the RME to 8 more mic inputs via ADAT which works very well.

    This interface sounds great and is easy to use. I had an issue with my unit and I called Focusrite, whose customer service was spectacular. Nick T and the representatives who helped me went above and beyond to exceed my expectations and to do so in an expedient manner so that I could get back to recording as soon as possible.
