The Clarett sound now on USB

Clarett USB lays down the challenge to interfaces twice the price. The Clarett USB range features specially designed high performance, low-noise (-128dB EIN) mic pres with a low distortion, ultra-linear design that guarantees a clean, open and transparent sound, giving accurate representation of the original performance. Boasting 119dB dynamic range, Clarett can now be experienced with any Mac or PC supporting USB 2.0 and above.

The most compact of the three new interfaces, Clarett 2Pre USB provides two mic/line/instrument inputs, four line outputs, MIDI I/O and an ADAT input.

Capture every detail with Clarett 2Pre USB

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 - you'll find Clarett a refreshing change. Thanks to its low-latency design and the inbuilt speed of the Thunderbolt interface, Clarett offers just 1.67ms round-trip latency. That means you can bring up the best possible DAW mix and use it all the time, with all your favourite plugins in place, and monitor the input only on the track you're recording - like the traditional overdub mode that studios have used since the beginnings of multitrack recording.

Why USB?

The low noise, low distortion and up to 119dB dynamic range of Clarett can now be experienced with any Mac or PC supporting USB 2.0 and above. The included standard USB and USB Type-C cables connect to Mac or PC, enabling you to record with super-low latency through amp simulators and effects plug-ins.

The clarity of Clarett

The Clarett range is acclaimed for its sound quality. It's due partly to Clarett's specially-designed mic pres with the unique "Air" effect, adding air and clarity especially to vocals and acoustic instruments. Plus Focusrite's precision digital conversion, carefully balancing noise floor, dynamic range, frequency response and distortion for the best possible sound to and from your DAW.
