Clarett Octopre 8 Channel Mic Pre and AD/DA Converter description:

The Focusrite Clarett Octopre 8 Channel Mic Pre and AD/DA Converter features eight channel mic pre amps and AD/DA converter. The mic pres have been designed specifically for the Clarett range with plenty of gain, yet low noise and distortion soundity. 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.

The front panel includes dual instrument inputs featuring extra headroom to handle the loudest pickup, while the rear panel includes universal XLR/jack connectors for the remaining auto-switching mic/line inputs. In addition, each input has its own switched insert point for single-cable connection of compression, equalisation and other outboard analogue processing with hard-wired relay bypass. The Clarett OctoPre offers D-A conversion of up to eight ADAT digital channels feeding 25-pin DSUB rear-panel analogue outputs, making it useful for mixing as well as tracking.
