Overview

Focusrite Clarett 2 Pre USB

The Focusrite Clarett 2 Pre USB is a high performance USB audio interface gives you two pristine mic/instrument/line preamps, state-of-the-art 192kHz/24-bit digital conversion, and ultra-low round-trip latency, so you can use your DAW plug-ins for monitoring. Focusrite engineered the 10-in, 4-out Clarett 2Pre to deliver vanishingly low noise and distortion, and they included their “Air” effect, which models the sound of the company’s acclaimed ISA transformer-based preamps. The Focusrite Clarett 2Pre is the easiest way to get great-sounding recordings.

Ins and outs

Clarett 2Pre USB is a 10-in, 4-out audio interface. The two mic/line/instrument inputs can record everything from condenser mics to super-hot pickups with no unwanted distortion – Gain Halo meters make it easy for you to set the input level. The ADAT input supports an additional eight channels in combination with multi-channel mic preamps like Clarett OctoPre. Outs include two monitor outputs with anti-thump technology, a headphone output with volume control, and two line outputs. MIDI I/O is also included.

Super-low latency recording

Clarett 2Pre USB connects to Mac® or PC using the included standard USB and USB Type-C™ cables. Record with super-low latency through amp simulators and effects plug-ins.

The clarity of Clarett

The Clarett range is acclaimed for its sound quality. It’s due partly to Clarett’s specially-designed mic pres with the unique “Air” effect, adding air and clarity especially to vocals and acoustic instruments. Plus Focusrite’s precision digital conversion, carefully balancing noise floor, dynamic range, frequency response and distortion for the best possible sound to and from your DAW.
