Focusrite 4-Pre Overview

Equally comfortable in the studio or as part of a mobile rig, the Focusrite Clarett 4Pre USB 18x8 USB Audio Interface combines 24-bit / 192 kHz A/D/A conversion, low-latency monitoring, and a multitude of I/O options with four, Air-enabled microphone preamps that can model the sound of the company's classic ISA preamps. With low noise (-128 dB EIN), low distortion, and 118 dB dynamic range, the high-performance mic preamps deliver a clean, open, and transparent sound, for accurate reproduction of the original performance.

The Clarett 4Pre USB is equipped with four front panel mic/line inputs, two of which have high-headroom instrument inputs for recording hot signals without distortion. Each mic pre has a separate gain knob with a Gain Halo meter that makes it easy to set the correct input level. The interface also provides four line-level outputs, MIDI I/O, stereo S/PDIF I/O, and eight ADAT input channels to expand your setup. The front panel features two 1/4" headphone outputs with independent volume controls. A pair of +48V phantom power switches allow you to turn on phantom power for condenser microphones on channels 1 and 2, and/or 3 and 4 respectively.

The Clarett 4Pre USB offers a comprehensive software package that includes the Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite with accurate models of the Red 2 equalizer and Red 3 compressor, the Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC plug-in that emulates the sound of Focusrite ISA 110 Equalizer and ISA 130 Dynamics Modules, the Softube Time and Tone Bundle with reverb, delay, mastering, and distortion plug-ins, and more. Also provided is Focusrite Control software that enables you to configure your routing and monitor mixes from Mac and Windows computers or iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices.
