Clarett+ 8Pre is a high-performance and immensely capable studio centerpiece for PC and Mac, which inspires producers, engineers and artists to create their best work. Eight high-headroom, low-noise, low-distortion Clarett+ mic preamps — featuring All-analogue Air with impedance switching and relay control — capture vocals, drums and acoustic instruments with precise clarity. Two JFET instrument inputs preserve the natural tone of guitars, just like plugging into an amplifier. Independent A-D and D-A converters bring recording artists closer than ever to their music, with extremely wide dynamic range, low noise and low distortion. Greatly improved D-A dynamic range brings every detail into focus, so engineers and producers can embrace no-compromise audio quality in abundance. Incredibly low A-D converter distortion lets you capture signals with more clarity, for greater transparency and sonic accuracy. Two improved, powerful and transparent headphone outputs inspire artists to hear every nuance of their sound on any type of headphones, customize their foldback mix, and perform their best. Whether you’re multi-tracking a drum kit or connecting to synths and outboard equipment, Clarett+ 8Pre lets you constantly develop your musical ideas while always maintaining analogue purity and extreme audio clarity. Expand via ADAT to add eight inputs and outputs using Clarett OctoPre, and connect to MIDI and S/PDIF equipment to maximize your creative potential.
