The Clarett 2Pre from Focusrite is a ten input, four output Thunderbolt interface that features microphone preamps modelled after the company's ISA range. Aside from the new transformer-modelled preamps and clean conversion, the Thunderbolt technology allows for monitoring and tracking within a DAW of choice without noticeable delay.
The Focusrite Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-In Suite (AAX, Audio Units, VST) delivers accurately modelled plug-ins based on the classic Focusrite Red 2 AEQ and Red 3 Compressor hardware. The plug-ins allow for conveniently exploring the sound of the hardware originals from within Pro Tools (10 and above), along with other audio software.
In addition to the Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-in Suite, the interface includes the Softube Time and Tone Pack. TSAR-1R adds space, depth and width to a sound. Change settings with a single slider, from realistic three-dimensional rooms to dramatic and dreamlike halls. Tube Delay is an echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modelled tube stages, delivering everything from realistic room echoes and rockabilly-style slap back to dub reggae echo. Saturation Knob is a modelled output distortion unit that adds grit and warmth - use it to fatten up bass lines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or simply destroy a drum loop.
