Focusrite Clarett Plus 2Pre USB Audio Interface

Ready for the home studio or the road, the bus-powered Clarett Plus 2Pre is equipped with two pro-level Clarett preamps and high-quality AD/DA conversion.

Whether recording vocals and instruments or composing in the box, Clarett+ 2Pre is the audibly impressive, pure-sounding, bus-powered* USB-C interface for PC and Mac to take with you on your creative journey.

Two Clarett+ mic preamps -- featuring all-analogue Air with impedance switching and relay control -- capture superbly clear recordings with high headroom, low distortion and ultra-low noise. Two JFET instrument inputs let you plug straight in and preserve the natural tone of your guitar, just like plugging into an amplifier.

Independent A-D and D-A converters bring you closer than ever to your music and let you hear the truth, whether you're in the studio or on the road. Greatly improved D-A dynamic range enables you to hear every detail and have greater control over your mix. Lower A-D converter distortion lets you capture signals with more clarity, for greater transparency and sonic accuracy.

Clarett+ 2Pre is the interface that accompanies you as you grow. It's expandable using ADAT, so you can connect devices such as Clarett OctoPre for a 10-input tracking environment.
