Focusrite Scarlett Octopre

8-channel mic preamp with ADAT connectivity

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.

Dual front-panel instrument inputs

Two high-headroom instrument inputs will handle high output guitar pickups and are right there on the front panel for easy access.

Plenty of headroom.
Pads for the most extreme inputs

With high-headroom inputs and a pad on every channel, Scarlett OctoPre is ideal for tracking drums as well guitars, keyboards, vocals - and more.

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.

Need D-A/Outputs as well as Inputs?
