Focusrite Introduce the Octopre

All of the outputs have the company’s unique ‘air’ feature that switches on a “transformer resonance effect” to enhance the sound with clarity modelled on the classic Focusrite ISA mic pre. With plenty of headroom, the mic pres will be able to handle the hottest pickups and the loudest drums with ease.


On the front panel there are two instrument inputs, accompanied by six auto-switching mic/line inputs on the back, all of which have their own input points for external analogue processing for things like compression or equalisation.


Additionally, they are all equipped with hardwired relay bypassing, so you wont have to connect and disconnect the outboard gear whenever you do and don’t want to use it. With high quality digital audio conversion and internal and external clocking also present, the Clarett Octopre represents a pretty complete package.
