8Pre Interface

Post by Suprawill1 » Fri Jan 26, 2018 9:08 pm

Hi All,
Has anyone experienced the Focusrite Clarett 8Pre interface with Cubase 9.5? Currently, the Thunderbolt version is available but I'm still waiting for the new USB version and wondering if anyone's experienced any problems with the Thunderbolt.
Thanks for your thoughts.

I heard this interface is pretty pristine for the price but nobody has stepped up to verify its performance with Cubase.
Anyone with experience?

Got a tech at Focusrite to verify the Clarett 8Pre works with Cubase.

I am waiting for the Clarett 8pre USB too.
I have a Scarlett 18i20 and it has been working great with cubase but GAS just hit me hard when I saw the Clarett line going USB.
I am very interested in a review too so the first to have it please post your experience.
Latency, audio quality, etc.

Will def post results. According to Focusrite, the Usb is supposed to have identical latency as the TB.
Almost went with the 18i20 because the 8Pre USB isn't supposed to hit market till April and my current interface is failing.
I then saw the Roland Studio Capture which also had good reviews and for the same price as the 8Pre, comes with 12 pre's with auto leveling, 16 analog inputs, DSP, individual channel phantom power, lo cut, phase inversion and a rock solid driver. A local sales tech talked me into waiting for the 8Pre.

Ok, I guess I am being told I am posting this in the wrong section. I would like to keep the continuity of this thread. Can it be moved to the proper section and keep it intact? Thanks.

Just heard from my distributor. The 8Pre is still 60 days out. Hope this works great with Cubase. 2 great entities at work here.
