Amazing product, sounds great, best value for money!

This is the best value for a 2 channel, thunderbolt interface on the market.
Tim Piper
Clarett 2PRE IS Everything it's been touted to be. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to recording and this is as close as I've ever come. Delightfully simple yet powerful. A great purchase...thanks!
SJ Ram
Low latency, durable construction, quality preamps and portable! Not else much to say, a near perfect interface for solo home recording. Air effect is beautiful too, seems to smooth up my lower mid tones and boosts the highs a little without making it sound harsh. Overall a nice addition of warmth while still keeping vocals crisp. My one drawback is that the interface isn't bus-powered — though I'm not sure what the limitations there are regarding this.

NEW SOFTWARE ADDITION
The Addictive Keys virtual instrument from XLN Audio is free with Focusrite interfaces. One full license per account enables you to choose one Addictive Keys instrument, such as Modern Upright, Studio Grand, Electric Grand or Mark One.

With ten inputs and four outputs, Focusrite's Clarett 2Pre Thunderbolt interface is ideal for the discerning Singer Songwriter. It includes two newly-designed Clarett mic preamps accessed direct from the front panel, plus class-leading digital conversion and millisecond-level low round-trip latency – so low that DAW plugins can be used while monitoring recordings: for example to add reverb in the headphones for a vocalist.

The new Clarett mic pre offers very low noise (EIN -128) and distortion, and also includes the switchable "Air" effect that models the sound of Focusrite's renowned ISA transformer-based preamps. It also features gain controls with a special law that makes changes smoother and more natural.

Focusrite has been known for top-quality digital conversion for almost as long as it has been respected for its microphone preamps, and the Clarett 2Pre is no exception. Featuring the latest in Focusrite precision digital conversion, 2Pre's 192kHz/24-bit converters deliver up to 118dB (A/D from mic pre) / 119dB (D/A line out) real-world dynamic range.

The two primary inputs are on the front panel in the form of mic/instrument/line combo XLR/TRS sockets and feature the newly-designed Clarett mic pres; in addition, an ADAT optical input can be used to expand the 2Pre's input capability with eight additional digital channels. The instrument-level inputs are designed with exceptional headroom, to accept the highest output pickup without distortion.

Clarett 2Pre includes Focusrite's signature "Gain Haloes" surrounding the gain controls. These give a simple go/no-go indication of level – green indicates a signal while red indicates that the signal is too hot.

The Clarett range is now fully compatible with Windows-based computers, offering stable, reliable operation with identical functionality on both platforms. The Windows driver offers sub-3ms latency. Also provided is a Windows version of the Focusrite Control software mixer for monitoring and routing configuration.

A new software mixer, Focusrite Control, is included for easy configuration of monitoring and routing setups. Simple and intuitive to use, Focusrite Control offers a traditional mixer workflow and allows immediate access to internal hardware functions. Every Clarett also includes the Red 2 & Red 3 AAX, AU & VST Plug-in Suite, which accurately models Focusrite's classic Red range equalizer and compressor hardware.

Remote control from iPhone or iPad - Download the free Focusrite iOS Control app and adjust cue mixes created with the Focusrite Control desktop app remotely from an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

Key Features

Two New Clarett Mic Pres with extra 'Air'
The mic pres have been designed especially for the Clarett range, with plenty of gain, yet low noise and distortion. In addition, they feature a special "Air" feature that switches in an analogue model of the classic transformer-based Focusrite ISA mic pre. Instrument inputs feature extra headroom to handle the loudest pickup.

Use DAW plugins in real time
Latency is the delay to a signal as it passes through your DAW system from interface input to interface output. Clarett Thunderbolt interfaces offer the world's shortest. Signals go round so fast that you can record and monitor through your DAW with plugins such as EQ or compression.

Precision digital conversion
Clarett features Focusrite's class-leading conversion quality: with up to 119dB dynamic range, Clarett offers the cleanest way yet to get music in and out of your DAW.

Ideal for the Singer Songwriter
Clarett 2Pre features a ten-in, four-out architecture with a host of features that will appeal to the Singer Songwriter or smaller stereo production environment. The two primary inputs are on the front panel in the form of mic/instrument/line combo XLR/TRS sockets, alongside a high power headphone output and all the necessary level controls.

High-power headphone output
The wide dynamic range headphone output is powerful enough to deliver plenty of level even on high impedance headphones – perfect for both tracking and mixing.

Expandable for when you need it
Every Clarett interface features an ADAT input: ideal for expanding the channel count and recording drums via a digital eight channel mic pre.

'Gain Halo' Metering
Focusrite's unique 'gain halo' metering is provided around the gain dials, providing clear 'go/no-go' green/red indication of levels to avoid clipping.

Software Mixer for maximum control
Focusrite Control is a brand new software mixer designed for easy configuration of monitoring and routing setups. Simple and intuitive to use, Focusrite Control also allows immediate access to internal hardware functions.

Classic processor plugins from Softube and Focusrite
Also included is a sweet sounding plug-in collection comprising Softube's world-class Time and Tone Pack, with SAR-1R Reverb, Tube Delay and Saturation Knob. This is complemented by the Red 2 & Red 3 AAX, AU & VST Plug-in Suite, which accurately models Focusrite's classic Red range equalizer and compressor hardware.

Remote control from iPhone or iPad
