Focusrite Scarlett Octopre

The Focusrite Scarlett OctoPre is an eight channel expansion preamp with a built-in VCA compressor. This Pre amp features a soft-knee compressor on each of the eight channels, allowing you to control the dynamics of your input signals, minimising the need for post-processing. The eight Scarlett microphone preamps provide exceptional audio quality, with sample rates ranging up to 192kHz for the best clarity and definition for your recordings.

Dynamic Compression
This special version of the new Focusrite Scarlett OctoPre features a soft-knee VCA compressor on each of the eight channels. The built-in analog compression on every channel allows you to control the dynamics of all your input signals, providing you with a single, easy-to-use knob that allows you to precisely dial in the amount of compression you require. The compressor features a ‘Transparent Mode’ for subtle compression as well as a ‘More’ button that gives you the ability to double the ratio for compression with added punch. The built-in compressor minimises the need for post-processing and editing, allowing you to control your dynamics of every input signal with ease.

Precision A-D Conversion
The precision A-D Conversion the OctoPre Dynamic delivers, has a sample rate ranging up to 192kHz, providing exceptional audio quality for all inputs. The impressive sample rate only complements the Scarlett preamps, providing an ultra-clean tone that will pick up every nuance of your original audio. 48V Phantom Power is also available on every channel for connecting condenser microphones, perfect for capturing studio-grade vocal recordings and more. The eight channels feature a Pad button, which provides extra headroom for your input, ideal for recording louder audio sources such as drums and electric guitars.
