Our friends at Focusrite, the makers of the Clarett range of audio interfaces make announced Thunderbolt drivers for Windows 10 support designed to provide stable, low-latency operation of Clarett audio interfaces to be released on November 10th.
The release of this Windows Thunderbolt support from Focusrite, coming on the back of the announcement for Thunderbolt support for UAD interfaces, has got to be good news for pro audio Windows 10 users.
Focusrite are stating that 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 will allow users to record and monitor while using their favourite plug-ins in real time, as well as other DAW workflow benefits.
The first release of the driver will support Thunderbolt connectivity via Display Port for all Clarett interfaces. The driver will be compatible with the latest 64-bit updates of Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
Further details of the driver specification and compatibility will be provided in a statement on November 10th. Future iterations will add support for Thunderbolt 3 Type C connectivity and the range of Red interfaces.
The driver also supports Focusrite Control, Focusrite's included software mixer designed for easy configuration of monitoring and routing setups, which is now available in a Windows version, again with identical functionality to the Mac version, including support for Focusrite iOS Control.
