Focusrite has introduced the Clarett+ range of premium-quality USB audio interfaces for PC and Mac, which build on the strengths of the previous Clarett ranges. Designed for producers, engineers and artists, the Clarett+ 2Pre, 4Pre and 8Pre boasts improved converters and professional quality mic preamps.
Clarett⁺ interfaces feature professional quality mic preamps, which have very high headroom, low distortion and ultra-low noise, noting that “exceptionally pure” recordings can be captured, whether miking guitars, recording vocals or tracking drums.
All-analogue Air with impedance switching and relay control brings clarity and presence and is optimised to make vocals shine by emulating the ISA 110 mic preamp from the classic Focusrite Studio Console.
Meanwhile, improved, high dynamic range A-D and D-A conversion with ultra-low distortion provide clearer mixes, while an improved headphone outputs and DAC performance offer transparent sound at all levels — on any headphones — so producers, engineers and artists can make their best mix decisions.
A collection of software, including mixing plug-ins and virtual instruments, offer all the tools needed for the user to master their craft.
