Product Description


Focusrite’s Scarlett Octopre Dynamic develops the foundations laid by the Scarlett OctoPre, supplying analogue compression to every input channel and eight channels of precision D-A conversion. With dual ADAT optical I/O, its perfect for enlarging a Scarlett 18i8 or 18i20.

The Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic is a well suited solution to delivering eight extra mic/line inputs to your DAW. It also provides eight balanced line outputs, obtained directly from their respective mic preamps, that have the capacity to be deployed on stage in a live environment.

Including eight channels of Focusrite's second generation Scarlett preamps and a soft-knee VCA compressor on every channel, Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic empowers the user to regulate the dynamics of every input signal with an easy-to-use single-knob analogue compressor on each channel. A transparent mode also features for subtle compression plus a "More" button, which will double the ratio for compression with effect.

On top of the eight input channels, Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic provides eight line outputs, sourced either from the ADAT inputs for eight additional analogue outputs, or directly from the mic inputs for use in a live sound environment.
