The Clarett OctoPre gives you eight extremely transparent Clarett mic pres and eight outputs too. You can use these to extend the capabilities of your Clarett audio interface or any other interface fitted with ADAT optical inputs and outputs. The eight mic pres have been designed specifically for the Clarett range for plenty of gain snf great sound quality while maintaining low noise and distortion. They are Air-enabled, so can reproduce the input impedance, clarity, and frequency response curve of the original ISA mic preamp.
The front panel includes dual instrument inputs featuring extra headroom to handle loud pickups, while the rear panel includes universal XLR/jack connectors for the remaining auto-switching mic/line inputs. Each input has its own switched insert point for single-cable connection of compression, equalization, and other outboard analog processing with a hardwired relay bypass so you can leave outboard gear or a patchbay connected ready to access at the press of a button.
The Clarett OctoPre offers up to eight ADAT digital channels feeding 25-pin DSUB rear-panel analog outputs, making it useful for mixing as well as tracking. The line outputs can optionally provide feeds from the mic pres – useful for feeding a live console while recording the digital outputs.
The precision 24-bit converters operate at standard sample rates all the way up to 192kHz – ideal for hi-res audio – with up to 118dB (A-D)/119dB (D-A) dynamic range.
