Ins and Outs

MIDI I/O and S/PDIF I/O are also included. ADAT I/O allows you to expand your setup with up to eight extra inputs and outputs when combined with multi-channel mic preamps like Clarett OctoPre.

Analogue outs include two monitor outputs with anti-thump technology, eight line outputs, two headphone outputs with volume controls, and a word clock output for sending clock signal to external devices.

StarStarStarStarStar 5/5

After a long commitment with my Saffire Pro 14, I finally upgraded. After careful research into all the new focusrite interfaces I went with the Clarett USB, giving me almost to none latency and usability with my macbook pro through USB-C and PC via standard USB. Great purchase from Getinthemix at the lowest price I could find on the internet. I am able to record with a great pre amp!!
