This pack has been specifically put together for those looking for more Inputs in their studio. The Focusrite Clarett 2Pre USB Audio Interface has two combination Inputs, but by using the included Alva Toslink to Toslink Cable to connect the 2Pre to the Clarett OctoPre, you increase that to 10 high-quality inputs!
Clarett 2Pre USB is a 10-in, 4-out audio interface. The two mic/line/instrument inputs can record everything from condenser mics to super-hot pickups with no unwanted distortion – Gain Halo meters make it easy for you to set the input level. The ADAT input supports an additional eight channels in combination with multi-channel mic preamps like Clarett OctoPre. Outs include two monitor outputs with anti-thump technology, a headphone output with volume control, and two line outputs. MIDI I/O is also included. Decades of analogue circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path. Hear your music sound better than you've ever heard it sound before.
Clarett OctoPre gives you eight inputs - and eight outputs too - that you can use to extend the capabilities of your Clarett Thunderbolt audio interface - or any other interface fitted with ADAT optical inputs and outputs. The mic pres have been designed specifically for the Clarett range, with plenty of gain, yet low noise and distortion - and great sound quality. They include a special “Air” feature that switches in an analogue model of the classic transformer-based Focusrite ISA mic pre, switching the impedance of the preamp to that of the original ISA, and enabling a ‘transformer resonance effect’, giving your microphone recordings the air and clarity of an ISA transformer-based mic pre-recording. In addition, the mic pres have plenty of headroom and are ideal for recording drums and other extreme level sources.
Finally, to connect the two together, the Alva OK0100PRO is a high quality 1m optical cable, finished with Toslink connectors.
