Focusrite Clarett 2Pre USB Interface

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. Decades of analogue circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path.

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.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Big Upgrade"
Overall: Upgraded to the Clarett from the Scarlett Solo, the change is massive. The Clarett is built like a tank. Took some time to get it going, only to see it does not connect with ASMedia USB controller chip. No trouble with add-on card or AMD USB 3.0. The audio is more rich sounding and deep. No pops, dropouts or crackles while performing. Everything will install fine and be seen in device manager, but if the wrong USB port is used (ASMedia) the Focusrite Control software will say "No Hardware Connected". It will remain non-functional. But once connected the first thing it does is upgrade the Firmware. Going to duplicate the stereo speakers with jacks 3 & 4 and run them all at the same time, a high gain stack. It looks like USB Type C is just for the electrical requirements. Plugged into USB 3.0 the Clarett is in standby mode, until the AC adapter is activated. I was going to get the Apollo, but they passed over a major hardware update and will not accommodate AMD.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds became my go-to music "store" when they approved me for "Play as you Pay" after another large retailer had turned me down for credit. Being extremely loyal, the only time that I shop anywhere else is when zZounds doesn't have what I'm looking for. And that isn't very often!" - Customer on October 7, 2017

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
