Focusrite Clarett+ 4Pre is an 18 in / 8 out premium audio interface with 4 mic preamps and a stack of extra features to elevate your recordings.
Around the back, you have four line outputs via 1/4″, S/PDIF i/o, along with MIDI i/o and the ADAT input – plus the input for external DC power and the extra line inputs (5-8).
Front panel is where the real action is. Let’s take a quick peep:
Four XLR/Jack combo inputs, with individual controls for gain, two +48v (phantom power) switches, along with indicators to show if you’re in instrument mode (using the JFET inputs for natural tone – inputs 1 & 2), or the mic input with or without AIR mode engaged.
There is a whacking great big knob for studio monitor level control (line output 1 & 2), along with a two 1/4″ headphone jack outputs, each with volume control.
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.
