Focusrite ISA828The ISA828 by Focusrite is a powerful eight-channel microphone preamp that is like a super powered version of the Focusrite Octopre.  It can function exactly like this older product if that’s what you want, but it has a lot more to offer than the Octopre, especially in terms of versatility and function.  The eight original ISA preamps are compacted into a small space, creating an awesome sound quality.

The ISA828 features circuitry based on the design created by Rupert Neve.  It’s a classic, and Focusrite has used it in a number of their products.  It also features the Lundahl L1538 audio transformer, another standard for Focusrite.  The ISA828, however, was also designed to be incredibly affordable, and it has the lowest cost per channel of Focusrite’s products so far.

In addition to the preamps, there are eight line inputs and four instrument inputs.  Four of the preamp channels feature high/low impedance switching, plus four of the instrument inputs are unbalanced.  While some devices don’t feature a very good layout, the ISA828 places these inputs on the far left of the front, letting you use them as high-performance DI boxes.  There are also a number of other controls can be easily accessed.

The ISA828 interfaces easily with ProTools and other popular apps, so you’ll most likely be able to use it with whatever software package you prefer to use.  A switchable input impedance, one for each channel, gives you four different settings, so you can adjust your sound in a number of different ways.  There are also switchable input points for each channel, plus a vintage high pass filter to help you eliminate any low frequencies you don’t want.  The Focusrite ISA828 may seem to be expensive at $2,499, but you won’t find a cheaper device that does all of this.

Expand your studio via ADAT with eight 2nd generation Scarlett mic preamps. The Scarlett OctoPre is the ideal 8-channel expansion for any Scarlett - or other digital interface with ADAT inputs. ADAT is a simple and easy way of increasing the number of simultaneous recording channels available in your studio. With eight channels of Focusrite's 2nd generation Scarlett preamps and precision A-D conversion at sample rates up to 192 kHz, Scarlett OctoPre is the ideal way of increasing the number of inputs in your studio. It also offers eight balanced line outputs, sourced directly from their respective mic preamps for use on stage in a live environment. Eight natural-sounding 2nd generation Scarlett mic/line inputs deliver high headroom, plenty of clean gain, low noise and minimal distortion - ideal for tracking drums as well guitars, keyboards, vocals and more. The front panel features two newly designed instrument inputs with extended headroom. ADAT outputs let you connect to any interface or digital system with ADAT optical inputs, and analog line outputs let you feed an analog console at the same time as recording with the digital outputs.

Focusrite’s Clarett OctoPre provides eight specially-designed Clarett mic pres and 24-bit, 192 kHz A-D and D-A conversion that can be used to extend the capabilities of a Clarett interface – or any other interface fitted with ADAT optical inputs and outputs. In addition to the mic pres, there are eight channels of D-A conversion providing eight analog outputs. The eight mic pres feature automatic mic/line switching inputs and two front-panel instrument inputs. Designed specifically for the Clarett range, they offer plenty of gain, yet low noise and distortion - and great sound quality. They also include a special “Air” feature that switches in an analog model of the classic transformer-based Focusrite ISA mic pre, switching the impedance of the preamp to that of the original ISA and enabling a ‘transformer resonance effect’, giving microphone sources the air and clarity of an ISA transformer-based mic pre recording. In addition, the mic pres have plenty of headroom and are ideal for recording drums and other extreme level sources. The front panel instrument inputs feature extra headroom to handle high-output pickups, while the rear panel includes universal XLR/jack connectors for the remaining auto-switching mic/line inputs. In addition, each input has its own switched insertion point for single-cable connection of compression, equalization and other outboard analog processing - with hard-wired relay bypass, so you can leave outboard gear or a patchbay connected ready to access at the press of a button. The inputs drive eight channels of precision 24-bit Focusrite A-D with 118dB dynamic range and standard sample rates up to 192kHz. Clarett OctoPre also offers D-A conversion (from the ADAT inputs, with 119dB dynamic range) of up to eight channels, making it perfect for mixing as well as tracking. The line outputs can optionally provide line level output feeds from the mic pres – useful for feeding a live console while recording the digital outputs.
