USB Audio Interfaces
USB audio interfaces are almost certainly the most common type of audio interface in general use, and our Scarlett USB audio interfaces are the world’s most widely adopted.
Clarett USB lays down the challenge to interfaces twice the price. The ultra-low noise and distortion and wide dynamic range of Clarett can now be experienced with any Mac® or PC supporting USB 2.0 and above. The Clarett USB series features three interfaces: Clarett 2Pre USB (10-in, 4-out), Clarett 4Pre USB (18-in, 8-out) and Clarett 8Pre USB (18-in, 20-out). The included standard USB and USB Type-C™ cables connect to Mac® or PC, and you can record with super-low latency through amp simulators and effects plug-ins.
If you’re choosing from the many different USB audio interfaces, Scarlett offers great speed, high-quality preamps, superb conversion, excellent low-latency performance and sample rates up to 192kHz, plus it’s easy to use.
Scarlett USB audio interfaces come with I/O counts up to 18-in/20-out. All these factors make pros and home-studio owners use Scarlett models.
Decades of analogue circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path. In addition, the Air-enabled mic preamps can reproduce the input impedance, clarity and frequency response curve of our original ISA mic preamp. Included software is from XLN Audio, Focusrite, Softube, Ableton® and Loopmasters.
The most compact of the three interfaces, Clarett 2Pre USB provides two mic/line/instrument inputs, four line outputs, MIDI I/O and an ADAT input. Clarett 4Pre USB and Clarett 8Pre USB add mic/line inputs, S/PDIF I/O and two headphone outputs with volume controls.
