Clarett+ 4Pre - A-D and D-A converters

Independent A-D and D-A converters

Independent A-D and D-A converters bring creators and collaborators closer than ever to their music, with extremely wide dynamic range and low distortion. Greatly improved D-A dynamic range enables you to hear every detail and have greater control over your mix. Incredibly low A-D converter distortion lets you capture signals with more clarity, for greater transparency and sonic accuracy. Two powerful and true-to-life headphone outputs inspire artists to hear every nuance, customise their foldback mix, and perform their best.

Clarett+ Included Software

Emulate iconic Focusrite hardware

Get the full Focusrite sound with three classic processors from Focusrite’s 40 year legacy of precision studio sound.

Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC is an authentic emulation of the classic ISA 110 module found in Focusrite Studio Console. ISA 110 was created when Sir George Martin asked Rupert Neve for custom modules for AIR Montserrat studios.

The Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite accurately models Focusrite’s classic Red range equaliser and compressor hardware. Coveted by producers and engineers for their exceptional clarity and versatility, the original Red 2 and Red 3 remain prized fixtures in professional recording studios the world over. Now, you can use these revered pieces, easily and flexibly, in your own mixes.

Four high-performance Clarett⁺ preamps

Hear every nuance and capture clear and powerful audio with preamps that bring masses of headroom, low distortion and ultra-low noise.

Make vocals shine with all-analogue Air

Premium, relay-controlled analogue circuitry on every preamp emulates the classic Focusrite ISA110 by switching the impedance to 2.2kΩ and adding two cumulative high shelves, totalling a 4dB boost in the high frequencies. 

New and improved A-D and D-A converters

Create tighter mixes and make more accurate recordings with extremely high-performance, independent A-D and D-A converters, which deliver extremely low noise, low distortion and high dynamic range.

Powerful, transparent headphone outputs

Dual outputs provide a flat frequency response that inspire the best-sounding recordings and mixes, and evoke amazing vocal performances.

Two JFET instrument inputs

Dedicated, ultra-high-impedance JFET instrument inputs, with extremely wide audio bandwidth, mimic guitar amp inputs to preserve the natural tone of guitars and capture their true character.

ADAT optical input
