Focusrite Clarett 4Pre USB Audio Interface

USB 18-in, 8-out audio interface with four Air-enabled mic preamps reproducing the input impedance, clarity and frequency response curve of Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp

Product Description

The Focusrite Clarett 4Pre is an 18-in, 8-out USB audio interface that combines Focusrite’s legendary sound quality with comprehensive features and ultra-transparent digital audio converters. Bundled together with a massive collection of popular creative software, Clarret 4Pre has everything you need to start making music right out of the box.


Clarett 4Pre is equipped with four combination inputs for recording microphones, synths, drum machines and analog outboard gear. Four high-performance, ultra-linear preamps capture the sound of Focusrite’s classic ISA pres with optional “air” controls for high-end sheen and shimmer.


Monitor your tracks using two dedicated line-level outputs, or dual headphone outputs with dedicated monitor controls. Process your tracks with external analog hardware using two separate two line-level outputs. Clarett 4Pre also offers unparalleled digital I/O with expandable ADAT and optical connectivity. Connect additional recording devices to capture sample-accurate audio up to 24-bit/192 kHz.


USB compliant and compatible with Mac and PC, Clarett 4Pre is highly flexible. Bundled together with an array of useful plug-ins for producing, recording and mixing, Clarett 4Pre is an all-in-one recording studio solution.

XLN Audio Addictive Keys puts collection of million-dollar pianos at your fingertips. Dial in punchy drums, fat basses and thick vocals with Focusrite Red 2 and Red 3 compressor plug-ins. Add depth and space to your mixes with the Softube Time and Tone Bundle, which includes world-class reverbs, delays and distortion devices. You’ll also be granted access to the Focusrite Plug-in Collective, which offers exclusive offers, tutorial content and more.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
