Focusrite announces Clarett+ range of premium audio interfaces
Focusrite has introduced the Clarett+ range of premium-quality USB audio interfaces for PC and Mac, which build on the strengths of the previous Clarett ranges. With improved converters and professional quality mic preamps, Clarett+ 2Pre, 4Pre and 8Pre are designed to help producers, engineers and artists to make their best music.
Clarett+ interfaces feature professional quality mic preamps, which have very high headroom, low distortion and ultra-low noise. All-analogue Air with impedance switching and relay control brings clarity and presence by emulating the ISA 110 mic preamp from the classic Focusrite Studio Console.
Improved high dynamic range A-D and D-A conversion with ultra-low distortion and improved headphone outputs and DAC performance are said to offer powerful, transparent sound.
The Clarett+ 2Pre is a 10-in/4-out audio interface, the Clarett+ 4Pre offers 18-in/8-out, while the studio grade Clarett+ is an 18-in/20-out audio interface. All three are expandable with ADAT optical inputs/outputs.
All Clarett+ audio interfaces run on driver software for PC and Mac, bringing cross-platform compatibility. In addition, they come with a collection of software — including mixing plug-ins and virtual instruments.
