Overview

The Scarlett OctoPre is the ideal 8-channel expansion for any Scarlett, or other digital interface with ADAT inputs. ADAT is a simple and easy way of increasing the number of simultaneous recording channels available in your studio. With eight channels of Focusrite's 2nd generation Scarlett preamps and precision A-D conversion at sample rates up to 192 kHz, Scarlett OctoPre is the ideal way of increasing the number of inputs in your studio. It also offers eight balanced line outputs, sourced directly from their respective mic preamps for use on stage in a live environment.

Eight natural-sounding 2nd generation Scarlett mic/line inputs deliver high headroom, plenty of clean gain, low noise and minimal distortion - ideal for tracking drums as well guitars, keyboards, vocals and more. The front panel features two newly-designed instrument inputs with extended headroom. ADAT outputs let you connect to any interface or digital system with ADAT optical inputs, and analogue line outputs let you feed an analogue console at the same time as recording with the digital outputs.

Comments about Focusrite Scarlett OctoPre:

I have full recording home studio with rack mount/keyboard synths, V drums, a drum machine, and a guitar effects processor. I got tired of plugging and unplugging audio cables to track outboard gear into DAW. The Focusrite Scarlet 18i20 gave me 8 inputs. I found out the OctoPre could give me 8 more via ADAT connection through a Toslink cable. Syncing up the 2 units is done through Toslink cable. I use OctoPre internal digital clock (press hardware button on front of unit) and slave the 18i20 by selecting ADAT clock control on the Focusrite 18i20 software control panel. I can keep my outboard gear plugged in now. This will also enable several musicians to track record live simultaneously. I plan on upgrading my V drums to a Roland TD-20 or TD-30. These units have individual outputs for each drum and cymbal. OctoPre gives me plenty of extra audio inputs so I can record 10 drums sounds simultaneously on different tracks in Protools DAW. This saves me time.
