The Focusrite Clarett 2Pre USB offers up to 10-in and 4-out in a compact desktop interface, fully bus powered through a single USB-C cable (USB cable included). The two onboard preamps offers the same input impedance, clarity and tone as the legendary Focusrite ISA One preamp, offer up to 119 dB of dynamic range and up to 24-bit/192 kHz audio.

The two mic preamps can also accept line level signal and have been equipped with high impedance inputs to record ultra clean DI tones or overdriven pickups with no added distortion. Expand the available I/O by adding a Clarett OctoPre which will provide up to eight additional channels of audio. Utilize the MIDI I/O to connect and sync all your external synths and drum machines. The S/PDIF connection provides a digital stereo in and out.

Control the overall level of playback with the monitor control on the front panel. The dedicated headphone output can be assigned to monitor the main mix or a separate artist cue.

The rear panel provides four line level outputs, two of which are dedicated to the speaker outputs, the other two can be used for a separate artist cue mix or routing to and from your external outboard gear.

Also included is a plug-in bundle from some of today’s top manufacturers including XLN Audio, Focusrite, Softube, Ableton and Loopmasters. Now you can record in realtime through amp simulators and dynamic plug-ins with near zero latency.

Download the Focusrite Control App to unlock expanded features, custom configure your routing and monitor mixes, and control your Clarett from any Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.
