NAMM 2015: New Focusrite Thunderbolt Interfaces

Buying Choices

Focusrite has launched the Clarett range of audio interfaces. A spokesperson had this to say about them,

"For over 20 years, we have made the best-sounding interfaces in the world. Now, we also make the fastest. We call them Clarett interfaces. They are the best-sounding, fastest interfaces in their class.

They combine our passion for sound quality with the very latest in Thunderbolt technology, to deliver crystal clear conversion, best-in-class dynamic range, and an unmatched interface latency of under 1ms. That's the lowest latency of any interface using Core Audio/ASIO drivers. It's so negligible that you can monitor and track within your software without any noticeable delay. Effectively, they unlock the real-time processing power of your DAW.

Yet that's not all. Clarett interfaces also feature brand new preamps that model the impedance and transformer resonance of our original ISA transformer-based mic pre, delivering the classic Focusrite signature sound at the touch of a button."
