Focusrite announces Windows Thunderbolt driver for Clarett interfaces

Focusrite Thunderbolt drivers for Windows

Focusrite, the world’s leading audio interface manufacturer, will release the first version of a new Windows driver for its popular Clarett range on November 10th. Windows users will enjoy sub 3ms round trip latency and the same reliable, stable operation that Mac-based Clarett owners already experience. The low latency allows users to record and monitor while using their favorite plug-ins in real time, as well as other DAW workflow benefits.
