Housed in a 1RU chassis, the Clarett 8Pre USB is equipped with two front panel mic/instrument/line inputs with high headroom for recording hot pickups without distortion, and six rear-mounted mic/line inputs, each with a separate gain knob. The interface also provides six line level outputs, two monitor outputs with anti-thump technology, a wordclock output, MIDI I/O, stereo S/PDIF I/O, and eight channels of ADAT I/O to expand your setup.
The front panel features two 1/4"" headphone outputs with independent volume controls. A pair of +48V phantom power switches allow you to turn on phantom power for condenser microphones on channels 1-4 and 5-8 respectively. A display with six-segment multichannel LED meter provides visual feedback as well as level control, a dim button, and a mute button.
