Focusrite Announces New Clarett USB Audio Interfaces
Rounik Sethi on Thu, January 11th | 0 comments
Joining the excellent Clarett range of Thunderbolt audio interfaces are three new high-performance USB models with very low noise, excellent AIR mic pres and a clean, transparent sound.

Focusrite has introduced a new range of USB audio interfaces – beating interfaces twice the price or more. The Clarett USB line features specially designed high performance, low-noise (-128dB EIN) mic pres with a low distortion, ultra-linear design that guarantees a clean, open and transparent sound, giving accurate representation of the original performance. Three interfaces appear in the series: Clarett 2Pre USB (10-in, 4-out), Clarett 4Pre USB (18-in, 8-out) and Clarett 8Pre USB (18-in, 20-out).

Clarett 2Pre USB

Boasting up to 119dB dynamic range, Clarett can now be experienced with any Mac® or PC supporting USB 2.0 and above. The included standard USB and USB Type-C™ cables connect to Mac® or PC, and you can record with super-low latency through amp simulators and effects plug-ins.

Decades of analogue circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path. In addition, the Air-enabled mic preamps can reproduce the input impedance, clarity and frequency response curve of Focusrite'soriginal ISA mic preamp. Included software is from XLN Audio, Focusrite, Softube, Ableton® and Loopmasters.
