    Default Quick Preamp Comparison: Focusrite Clarett/Audient ASP880

    I just replaced my Focusrite Clarett devices with Audient iD44 & ASP880s. I figured that made it a good time to compare the 2 devices on some drums. So, I played the same thing on 4 drums (kick, snare, floor tom, & mounted tom) using each of the voices available in the Clarett (without & with Air) and ASP880 (medium, high, and low impedance). I level matched all the tracks using peak values. So, if you are wondering whether a Clarett or an Audient device is for you, here is a quick comparison to check out: https://youtu.be/AxkymZwD628

    Nice but I Would of like to actually see the drums hit on video along with hearing them so I could hear the tones better.

    Thanks for sharing! I got the Focusrite Clarett 4Pre some time ago, but had wondered how it would sound compared to the Audient iD44. This has helped to answer that. Much appreciated!

    You're welcome. I thought the comparison would be useful to people considering between the 2 devices. I don't know why it didn't occur to me until after the video was done that I should have also included the iD44 preamp. I believe it's basically the same as the ASP880 on medium Z setting, but haven't tested that to verify.
