The Sound Of Scarlett - And More Of It

Scarlett OctoPre gives you eight additional inputs. It's the ideal way to expand your Scarlett – or any other interface with an ADAT input.

Eight Scarlett Mic Preamps

Scarlett OctoPre features eight Scarlett mic inputs – balanced line inputs too – all running through Focusrite precision 24-bit conversion at up to 192kHz 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 Standalone 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.
