You’ll need to get your head around a bit of recording history to truly understand one of the SPs of the new Focusrite Clarett USB range but, don’t worry, I’ll be as concise as I can. Focusrite was started by the legend that is Rupert Neve back in the mid 80s. He was asked by none other than George Martin to build a ‘no compromise’ input module (that is preamp and EQ) for Martin’s mixer at AIR Studios in Montserrat and the ISA (Input Signal Amplifier) 110 was born. The preamp and EQ was famed for its low noise and distortion and its design was incorporated into a stack of different Focusrite products over the following years.

About MusicTech

Emulating the artists that inspired us in our many music-making ventures is as much about rekindling those feelings as it is knowing how the sounds were created. In our cover feature this month we show you how to get impossibly close to the sonic signatures left by your musical heroes. Continuing the theme we present our newest feature ‘Recording Spotlight,’ where we speak to Peter Franco, engineer on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, and gain insight into the complex, painstaking work that went into creating this modern classic. Additionally, we sit down with dance-music producer Stefano Ritteri and rising UK production star Rhiannon Mair, get into the meat of Cubase 9.5 and get hands-on with all the latest gear, tech and software. We hope you enjoy the issue…
