The Focusrite Clarett 2pre is a 10 in / 4 out Thunderbolt audio interface. Better. Faster. Easier.
Meet the Focusrite Clarett range; the best-sounding, fastest Thunderbolt interfaces.
Combining our passion for sound quality with the very latest in Thunderbolt technology, the Clarett range features brand new transformer-modeled preamps, crystal clear conversion, and interface latency so negligible that you can monitor and track within your software without any noticeable delay.
Two New Clarett Mic Pres with extra 'Air'
The mic pres have been designed especially for the Clarett range, with plenty of gain, yet low noise and distortion. In addition, they include a special "Air" feature that switches in an analogue model of the classic transformer-based Focusrite ISA mic pre. The Instrument inputs also feature extra headroom to handle the loudest pickup.
Precision Digital Conversion
Clarett features Focusrite's class-leading 24/192 conversion: with up to 119dB dynamic range, Clarett offers the cleanest way yet to get music in and out of your DAW.
Plug Straight In
Do not underestimate the quality of the Clarett range DI. This newly designed instrument input allows for even the hottest of guitar pick-ups to be recorded without clipping, and the performance specifications easily match some of the finest dedicated DI's on the market. Coupled with the low latency environment, now you can get the most out of recording through your favourite amp sim and guitar effect plug-ins in real time.
Revolutionise your Workflow
Clarett's ultra-low round-trip latency completely transforms your workflow. If you're used to having to build two different mixes - one using input monitoring to overdub, the other using the DAW for playback - the good news is that now, one is enough. Build your mix on the DAW and use it whether you're overdubbing (monitoring the input you're recording with the new Focusrite Control software mixer) or playing back, with all your plugins in place, all the time. Use your favourite plugins while recording too - whether it's reverb on a vocal, a guitar amp simulator, or even virtual instruments live on stage.
