Focusrite

Description

The Focusrite Clarett+ 4Pre is a studio-grade audio interface for PC and Mac, designed for music makers who demand the highest quality when recording and mixing their audio creations. Four high-headroom, low-noise, low-distortion Clarett+ mic preamps capture vocals, drums and acoustic instruments with immense clarity. Two JFET instrument inputs let you plug straight in and preserve the natural tone of your guitar, just like plugging into an amplifier. Independent A-D and D-A converters bring creators and collaborators closer than ever to their music, with extremely wide dynamic range and low distortion. A greatly improved D-A dynamic range enables greater control over your mix, while incredibly low A-D converter distortion lets you capture signals with more clarity. Two improved, powerful and transparent headphone outputs inspire artists to hear every nuance, customize their foldback mix and perform their best.  

The Clarett+ 4Pre interface brings collaborators together with options to record up to 18 input channels simultaneously. Expand via ADAT using the Clarett OctoPre or other outboard hardware. Four analogue outputs and MIDI input and output makes Clarett+ 4Pre the centerpiece of the evolving recording studio.
