Product Description



 18x20 USB Audio Interface for PC or Mac 



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.


Capture every detail with Clarett 8Pre USB.


Clarett 8Pre USB is an 18-in, 20-out audio interface. Six-segment LED metering easily shows the signal level of the eight mic/line inputs, two of which are also high-impedance instrument inputs that can record super-hot pickups with no unwanted distortion.


MIDI I/O and S/PDIF I/O are also included. ADAT I/O allows you to expand your setup with up to eight extra inputs and outputs when combined with multi-channel mic preamps like Clarett OctoPre. 


Analogue outs include two monitor outputs with anti-thump technology, eight-line outputs, two headphone outputs with volume controls, and a word clock output for sending clock signal to external devices.


Included standard USB and USB Type-C™ cables connect to Mac® or PC.
