Focusrite Announces Clarett Range of Thunderbolt™ Interfaces

New units allow you to redefine the sound of your studio with the best sounding,
fastest Thunderbolt interfaces in the world

The NAMM Show, Anaheim, CA, January 22, 2015 — Focusrite (booth 6464) creates the best audio interfaces in the world. Now, launching their obsession for sound quality into the world of Thunderbolt, they have released a range of audio interfaces that combine a new preamp design with the very latest in Thunderbolt™ technology, to offer exceptional sound quality with an unparalleled interface latency of under 1ms.

As you'd expect from a company this passionate about sound, Focusrite's Clarett interfaces offer crystal clear conversion, 24-bit, 192kHz sample rates and world class dynamic range. Equally, their brand new Clarett mic preamps replicate the impedance and transformer resonance of the original ISAs, resulting in exceptional clarity and the signature sound for which Focusrite has become famous.

The range is made up of four devices; the 2Pre (10 In/4 Out), 4Pre (18 In/8 Out), 8Pre (18 In/20 Out) and flagship 8Pre X (26 In/28 Out). This final 2U interface has been designed with the permanent racked studio install in mind, featuring extended ADAT I/O, and separate rear panel inputs for mic, line and instrument, as well as dedicated phantom power, phase reverse and high pass filters on every channel.

Comprehensive attention to sound quality, combined with unmatched Thunderbolt latency performance that unlocks the real-time processing power of your DAW, makes the new Focusrite Clarett range the best-sounding, lowest latency interfaces.
