Focusrite Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic Preamp

The Focusrite Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic is an 8-channel mic pre expansion with eight 2nd generation Scarlett mic preamps, eight balanced line inputs and two instrument inputs including analogue compression on every input, with precision Focusrite A-D and D-A conversion at up to 192 kHz.

The Scarlett Octopre Dynamic builds on the features of the Scarlett OctoPre, adding analogue compression to all input channels and eight channels of precision D-A conversion. With dual ADAT* optical I/O, its ideal for expanding a Scarlett 18i8 or 18i20 - or any interface with ADAT I/O. Expand your studio with eight mic/line inputs, eight line outputs, Focusrite precision conversion up to 192 kHz AD/DA and analogue compression on every channel.

Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic is the ideal way of adding eight extra mic/line inputs to your DAW. It also offers eight balanced line outputs, sourced directly from their respective mic preamps for use on stage in a live environment. Featuring eight channels of Focusrite's 2nd generation Scarlett preamps and a soft-knee VCA compressor on every channel. Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic lets you control the dynamics of all your input signals with an easy-to-use single-knob analogue compressor on every channel. There's a transparent mode for subtle compression plus a "More" button that doubles the ratio for compression with effect. In addition to the eight input channels, Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic includes 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.

Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic is ideal for expanding any high quality, multi-channel recording system. With its high-headroom mic, line and dual instrument inputs and analogue compression, it's ideal for tracking drums as well guitars, keyboards, vocals and more. Meanwhile the eight outputs give you the option of expanding your analogue outputs over and above the Scarlett OctoPre.

Simple and Effective September 9, 2014
Reviewer: J. Pelz from Davis, CA United States  
The OctoPre is the first hardware compression unit I've owned. I use it with an Allen & Heath ICE-16D 16-Channel Multitrack Recorder in mobile recording rig as a serious hobbyist. The combination has proven to be simple to operate achieve excellent results. Recently, I use the OctoPre with my Mackie CR1604 VLZ on vocals and kick drum for front of house sound for a cover band in a small venue. Again, simple and straightforward to operate. Great sound, and really helped keep the vocals out front in the mix.
