Overview

Focusrite Clarett 4 Pre USB

The Focusrite Clarett 4 Pre USB 18-in/8-out audio interface is a powerful foundation for your studio or mobile recording rig. It sports four great-sounding Clarett microphone preamplifiers, an outstanding dynamic range, and ultra-fast, low-latency performance. Clarett’s magic starts as soon as you plug your microphones in — the mic preamps feature Focusrite’s switchable Air effect, which switches in an analog model of Focusrite’s classic ISA transformer-based mic pre. With flexible connectivity including analog and S/PDIF I/O, the Focusrite Clarett 4Pre USB is ready to integrate into virtually any recording rig.

Ins and outs

Clarett 4Pre USB is an 18-in, 8-out audio interface. Gain Halo meters make it easy for you to set the input level of the four mic/line inputs, two of which are also high-impedance instrument inputs that can record super-hot pickups with no unwanted distortion. Four fixed line inputs are also included, and the ADAT input supports an additional eight channels when combined 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 4Pre 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.
