World-Class 2nd Generation Scarlett Mic Preamps
The Focusrite Scarlett OctoPre is a premium-quality, 8-channel preamplifier featuring eight world-class 2nd generation Scarlett mic preamps. The natural sounding Scarlett mic preamps help to bring definition to the forefront, picking up every nuance of your source material, ideal for capturing studio-grade recordings. The Scarlett OctoPre is the ideal 8-channel expansion preamp for Scarlett interfaces as well as any other digital interface featuring ADAT inputs.
This robust yet lightweight preamp unit is the ideal choice for increasing the number of inputs in your studio. In addition to the eight Scarlett mic preamps, the OctoPre also includes eight balanced line inputs as well as dual front-panel instrument inputs for recording both instruments and vocals with ease. The mic/line inputs feature high headroom, with low noise and minimal distortion, perfect for a range of audio sources from guitars and keyboard to drums and vocals. The instrument inputs also feature extended headroom for louder sources.
Precision A-D Conversion
The precision A-D Conversion the OctoPre delivers has a sample rate ranging up to 192kHz, providing exceptional audio quality for all inputs. The impressive sample rate 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 provide extra headroom for your input, ideal for recording louder audio sources such as drums and electric guitars.
Design & Connectivity
The lightweight yet robust construction of the Scarlett OctoPre makes it ideal for studio and live use alike, being easy to transport as well as being easily mounted to a rack, taking up only 1U of space. The front-panel features all the major controls including two instrument inputs and level control for all channels. The highly-accurate 5-segment LED meter provides precision monitoring for all your inputs, allowing you to keep an eye on your levels. ADAT outputs give you the ability to connect to any interface or digital system using the ADAT optical inputs, with the analog line outputs allowing you to feed an analog console while recording with the digital outputs.
The stand-alone design means it’s ideal for using in conjunction with other Scarlett digital interfaces, providing eight additional inputs for your recording setup. The OctoPre also features state-of-the-art digital clocking with World Clock I/O for synchronisation with external devices. Additionally, the OctoPre comes complete with the Focusrite Red 2 & 3 Plug-In Suite as well as the Softube Time & Tone bundle, both exceptional plug-in bundles that feature studio-grade effects and processing tools.

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.
This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
