Focusrite has announced the Clarett USB range of audio interfaces, featuring specially designed high performance, low-noise (-128dB EIN) mic pres with a low distortion, ultra-linear design that guarantees a clean, open and transparent sound, giving accurate representation of the original performance.
Three interfaces appear in the series:
Boasting up to 119dB dynamic range, Clarett can now be experienced with any Mac or PC supporting USB 2.0 and above. The included standard USB and USB Type-C cables connect to Mac or PC, and you can record with super-low latency through amp simulators and effects plug-ins.
Decades of analogue circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path. In addition, the Air-enabled mic preamps can reproduce the input impedance, clarity and frequency response curve of our original ISA mic preamp. Included software is from XLN Audio, Focusrite, Softube, Ableton and Loopmasters.
The most compact of the three interfaces, Clarett 2Pre USB provides two mic/line/instrument inputs, four line outputs, MIDI I/O and an ADAT input. Clarett 4Pre USB and Clarett 8Pre USB add mic/line inputs, S/PDIF I/O and two headphone outputs with volume controls.
