Do you have a computer with a Thunderbolt port and you feel like it’s time for a new audio interface? Focusrite got you covered.
If you live in Europe, from December 1st 2015 to Jan 31st, 2016 you can save up to £185/260 EUR when purchasing a new Clarett Thunderbolt interface (the offer is for the two flagship models, 8Pre X and 8Pre, NOT for the newest smaller ones).
The cross-grade offer makes these two professional items considerably more affordable, making them also appealing for smaller studios and project studios.
The Clarett 8Pre X is a 26×28 Thunderbolt interface while the 8Pre is an 18×20 Thunderbolt interface. Both share similar features
– Up to 119dB dynamic range
– low noise
– 24/192 conversion
– 8 specially-designed mic preamps with a unique analogue “Air” effect
– 1.38ms round-trip latency
How does the cross-grade offer work?
It couldnì’t be easier than this. Just take your old audio interface (any brand/model) into a participating retailer. The store will note down all of the details about your old interface and offer a discount on a new Clarett Thunderbolt.
Wait! You got it right; you will just have to SHOW them your old interface. You still get to keep it (so you can even sell it on eBay & co.).
Heads up: the savings only apply to goods purchased in participating stores (yes, you have to turn up in person) and NOT on any web or e-commerce purchases.
