Designed for recording studios, the Focusrite Clarett 8PreX Thunderbolt Audio Interface combines 24-bit 192 kHz A/D/A conversion, 119 dB real-world dynamic range, 1 ms roundtrip Thunderbolt latency, and eight microphone preamps that can model the sound of the company's ISA transformer-based preamps using the "Air" effect. The high resolution recording and ultra low latency allows you to enable 64-bit AAX, AU, and VST compatible DA plug-ins while monitoring recordings. The interface comes with 64-bit AAX, AU, and VST compatible Red 2 and Red 3 plug-in suite.

Housed in a 2RU chassis, the interface features two front instrument ¼" TRS inputs, eight rear panel microphone XLR-3F inputs, eight ¼" line level inputs, six line level ¼" TRS outputs, two ¼" TRS monitor outputs, word clock I/O, 5-pin MIDI I/O, stereo SPDIF I/O, and sixteen channels of ADAT I/O for expansion.

The front panel also features two ¼" TRS headphone outputs with separate volume controls. A dedicated gain control, a +48V phantom power switch, a phase reverse switch, and a high pass filter switch is provided for each microphone preamplifier. A six-segment multi-channel LED meter provides visual feedback, as well as a level control, a dim button, and a mute button.
