The are three models in the range: the Clarett 2Pre USB (10-in, 4-out), Clarett 4Pre USB (18-in, 8-out) and Clarett 8Pre USB (18-in, 20-out). These are said to offer up to 119dB of dynamic range and come with low-noise preamps that will deliver a clean, open and transparent sound. The mic preamps are Air-enabled, enabling them to emulate the sound of Focusrite’s ISA mic pre.
The interfaces operate at 24-bit/192kHz and connect to your Mac or PC via its standard USB or USB-C port (the first-generation models were Thunderbolt-only). Latency levels are said to be low enough that you can record through amp sims and other effects.
In terms of I/O, the Clarett 2Pre USB offers two mic/line/instrument inputs, four line outputs, MIDI I/O and an ADAT input, while the Clarett 4Pre USB and Clarett 8Pre USB add mic/line inputs, S/PDIF I/O and two headphone outputs with volume controls. Bundled software comes from XLN Audio, Softube, Ableton, Loopmasters and Focusrite itself.
