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.

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.
