Item Description:
  • Eight natural-sounding 2nd generation Scarlett mic preamps and eight balanced line inputs and dual front-panel instrument inputs
  • Focusrite precision A-D conversion up to sample rates of 192 kHz
  • Expand your studio via ADAT with eight 2nd generation Scarlett mic preamps. The Scarlett OctoPre is the ideal 8-channel expansion for any Scarlett - or other digital interface with ADAT inputs. ADAT is a simple and easy way of increasing the number of simultaneous recording channels available in your studio. With eight channels of Focusrite's 2nd generation Scarlett preamps and precision A-D conversion at sample rates up to 192 kHz, Scarlett OctoPre is the ideal way of increasing the number of inputs in your studio. It also offers eight balanced line outputs, sourced directly from their respective mic preamps for use on stage in a live environment. Eight natural-sounding 2nd generation Scarlett mic/line inputs deliver high headroom, plenty of clean gain, low noise and minimal distortion - ideal for tracking drums as well guitars, keyboards, vocals and more. The front panel features two newly designed instrument inputs with extended headroom. ADAT outputs let you connect to any interface or digital system with ADAT optical inputs, and analog line outputs let you feed an analog console at the same time as recording with the digital outputs.

    Eight Scarlett 2nd Generation mic preamps
    Scarlett OctoPre features eight 2nd Generation Scarlett mic inputs - balanced line inputs too - all running through Focusrite precision 24-bit conversion at up to 192 kHz resolution with 109dB dynamic range.

    Record with the apps you already have
    The preamp in iTrack One Pre holds true to the Focusrite philosophy where Sound is Everything. It lets you capture crisp and clear recordings of vocals and acoustic instruments directly into your favorite apps, including Garageband, Auria and Cubasis. Setting the right recording level is quick and easy thanks to the illuminated gain halo, which is unique technology from Focusrite's larger interfaces.

    Outputs for live or stand-alone use
    Eight balanced line outputs, sourced directly from the inputs allow Scarlett OctoPre to be used in a live situation whilst capturing the recording via the digital ADAT output.
