18 In/20 Out Rackmount USB-C Audio Interface with 8 ISA-Modelled Mic Preamps

Focusrite Clarett+ 8Pre is an 18 in / 20 out premium audio interface with 8 mic preamps and a stack of extra features to elevate your recordings.

Around the back, you have 10 line outputs via 1/4″, S/PDIF i/o, ADAT i/o, MIDI i/o and mic/line inputs 3-8 via XLR / jack combo input.

Front panel is looks like a control centre. Let’s take a quick peep:

Two XLR/Jack combo inputs, with individual controls for gain, along with indicators to show if you’re in instrument mode (using the JFET inputs for natural tone). There are also gain knobs for mic/line inputs 3-8, with indicators to show if you’re are recording with or without AIR mode engaged.

There is a metering panel for the 8 mic preamps (and L&R outputs) with monitor level control, plus the two 1/4″ headphone jack outputs, each with volume control – and a power switch.

Get the sound of iconic Focusrite hardware:

Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC is an authentic emulation of the classic ISA 110 module found in Focusrite Studio Console. ISA 110 was created when Sir George Martin asked Rupert Neve for custom modules for AIR Montserrat studios.

Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite accurately models Focusrite’s classic Red range equaliser and compressor hardware. Coveted by producers and engineers for their exceptional clarity and versatility, the original Red 2 and Red 3 remain prized fixtures in professional recording studios the world over.

Big recording session? Use ADAT to add 8 mic preamps with Clarett+ OctoPre for an 18-input tracking environment.

Quick service and reasonable price. Angus was helpful and transparent.20/07/23 Update. I had an issue with some equipment that I purchased from these guys, and true to form, they were supportive and gave me consistent feedback on the progress of my concern. Elliot and Darren were incredibly committed to getting me a satisfactory result. I have recommended Factory Sound to my mates because I actually believe that they will be taken care of.

The only place to buy pro audio gear from. Been coming here for over 20 years, and a lot of the same staff still look after me. Says a lot about their business. The best service, advice and gear every single time. If they don’t have it, they’ll get it for you. No need to worry about pricing, theirs is ALWAYS the best. All the staff go out of their way to help you, and will always get back to you. Cant’ recommend this place enough, 5 stars doesn’t seem like enough.
