Works well, sounds good & reasonably priced. Was missing a NA NEMA power cable in the box, but all good

Luv it !!!!
Mike Lawson
Great sound, converters, and nice having eight channels of 96k added to my Apollo
Richard Recco
I love this unit for the value. The preamps are very clean and the on-board compressors make things easier for drums and vocals during mixdown. It has very little competition in its price range.
Riley Michaels
Perfect condition, works perfectly!
Does what it's supposed to. We'll see how long it lasts...

I LOVE my new Scarlett OctoPre! Arrived on time. Very easy to set up and get recording. The preamps sound amazing on this unit. I’d say it’s the best decision I’ve made in expanding my home studio. If anyone’s on the fence I say go for it! You won’t regret it!
Tim Haley
High quality products that never disappoint. Built to handle heavy loads and last forever!
Nikhil Maira
Super fast connectivity, great sound and affordable price to expand to 8 more analog combi inputs! Really clean sounding pre's for drums too!
Pedro Pertierra
Need more mic inputs but don't want to get another interface? This was a solution that allows me to expand my system without breaking the bank. It's sweet sounding mic pres (Focusrite, enough said) and instrument inputs in the front allow it to be as flexible as it can. Great sound!
Mathew Workman
I had it installed in about 3 minutes. The pre's are fine to my ears -just what I was looking for, 8 more clean preamps. From this experience - I see much more Focusrite gear in my future. What a great experience from start to finish.

Expand your studio with eight mic/line inputs, eight line outputs, Focusrite precision conversion up to 192 kHz AD/DA and analogue compression on every channel.

The Scarlett Octopre Dynamic builds on the features of the Scarlett OctoPre, adding analogue compression to all input channels and eight channels of precision D-A conversion. With dual ADAT* optical I/O, its ideal for expanding a Scarlett 18i8 or 18i20 - or any interface with ADAT I/O.

Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic is the ideal way of adding eight extra mic/line inputs to your DAW. It also offers eight balanced line outputs, sourced directly from their respective mic preamps for use on stage in a live environment.

Featuring eight channels of Focusrite's 2nd generation Scarlett preamps and a soft-knee VCA compressor on every channel. Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic lets you control the dynamics of all your input signals with an easy-to-use single-knob analogue compressor on every channel. There's a transparent mode for subtle compression plus a "More" button that doubles the ratio for compression with effect.

In addition to the eight input channels, Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic includes eight line outputs, sourced either from the ADAT inputs for eight additional analogue outputs, or directly from the mic inputs for use in a live sound environment.

Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic is ideal for expanding any high quality, multi-channel recording system. With its high-headroom mic, line and dual instrument inputs and analogue compression, it's ideal for tracking drums as well guitars, keyboards, vocals and more. Meanwhile the eight outputs give you the option of expanding your analogue outputs over and above the Scarlett OctoPre.
