The Clarett 2Pre only has two inputs, but they pack a punch.
Like most of the other options on this list, the Clarett’s preamps accept XLR or ¼” inputs and allow for phantom power. What makes these preamps special is you basically get two preamps in one.
The Clarett preamps themselves are fantastically clean and awesome sounding.
Focusrite has also added an “Air” button. This button changes the sound of the preamp to emulate the classic Focusrite ISA preamp.
The Clarett may be small. But with four line outputs, a headphone jack, and MIDI In and Out, it’s definitely well rounded.
This is an awesome option for someone looking to have a small, high-quality setup.
