Focusrite Clarett Thunderbolt Audio Interfaces Get Windows Compatibility

Focusrite tell us they're on the verge of releasing a Windows driver to provide stable, low-latency operation of Clarett Thunderbolt audio interfaces. 

Focusrite, the world's leading audio interface manufacturer, will release the first version of a new Windows driver for its popular Clarett range on November 10th. Windows users will enjoy sub 3 ms round trip latency and the same reliable, stable operation that Mac-based Clarett owners already experience. The low latency allows users to record and monitor while using their favourite plug-ins in real time, as well as other DAW workflow benefits. 

The first release of the driver will support Thunderbolt connectivity via Display Port for all Clarett interfaces. The driver will be compatible with the latest 64-bit updates of Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Further details of the driver specification and compatibility will be provided in a statement on November 10th. Future iterations will add support for Thunderbolt 3 Type C connectivity and the range of Red interfaces. 

The driver also supports Focusrite Control, Focusrite's included software mixer designed for easy configuration of monitoring and routing setups, which is now available in a Windows version, again with identical functionality to the Mac version, including support for Focusrite iOS Control. 

Focusrite’s Clarett audio interfaces are widely praised for their sound quality, performance and value for money. They feature specially designed high-performance, low noise, low distortion mic preamps, which include the unique analogue "Air" effect, emulating the sound of Focusrite’s heritage transformer-based mic preamps. The interfaces include precision 24-bit/192 kHz conversion and offer super-low latency.
