Audient ASP800 8-Channel Microphone Preamplifier and ADC with HMX & IRON ƒ?? Key Features:

  • Whether youƒ??re recording drums or simply need more channels, ASP800 is the perfect tool for expanding your existing interface via ADAT. Its flexible and intuitive feature set will transform your current setup into the complete recording rig, perfectly at home recording both acoustic and electronic instruments.
  • Audient Console Mic Pres - The professional sound you deserve. We are the only company that use the same Class-A mic pre design throughout our entire product range, whether youƒ??re in the studio with an Audient ASP8024 console or on the road with ASP800, youƒ??re always guaranteed the same world class Audient sound.
  • Pristine Converter Technology - Brilliance on the inside enables brilliance on the outside. ASP800 provides you with high performance 118-dB AD converters from Burr Brown, the leaders in converter technology. Quality in the analogue stages of our design comes from years of experience as analogue console designers, and when coupled with outstanding converter technology it enables you to hear audio as itƒ??s supposed to sound. The importance of converters should never be underestimated. Experience audio the Audient way.
  • The Retro Channels - Take control of your audio. Retro Channels 1 & 2 feature two unique variable harmonic COLOUR controls per channel - HMX & IRON. Designed to emulate tones often associated with 1960ƒ??s tube designs and the coveted transformer zing of British audio in the 1970ƒ??s, HMX & IRON will add new dimension to your audio by providing warm, sparkly tones. Better still, you can combine them to get anywhere in between!
  • Listen ƒ?? Harmonic Mosfet Saturator (HMX). We know that plenty of engineers love the sound of tubes/valves and if youƒ??re one of them, then youƒ??re going to love HMX. Travel back in time with ASP800ƒ??s very own custom harmonic distortion control. Similar to vintage valve preamplifier designs of the 1960s, HMX provides a sweet, thick tone that will sound incredible on anything from drums to electric guitars. (TIP! Try it on bass synth, or 808 too!). By using discrete MOSFET technology, HMX produces asymmetrical harmonic distortion giving you the option to add richness and body to the pristine tone of the Audient mic preamp, D.I or line input. Take control of your sound and bring your audio to life, 1960ƒ??s style.
  • Listen ƒ?? Vintage Transformer Drive (IRON). Say hello to Audientƒ??s BRAND NEW British transformer saturator - IRON. A testament to innovation, IRON uses a custom British transformer with a high voltage MOSFET drive network designed to recreate that sparkly, ƒ??sounds like a recordƒ?� signature of 1970ƒ??s recording. With one control that simultaneously alters drive impedance, bass response, high frequency damping, phase shift, magnetic saturation and transient shaping - IRON can instantly add sparkle, growl and so much more with one twist of a knob! It sounds killer on snare, bass, acoustic guitar and anything that needs some extra bite.
  • Plug And Play - Plug in and be inspired. As well as offering you 8 channels of mic pre, ASP800 has two harmonically rich JFET D.I inputs. Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, you can plug your guitar, bass, keyboard or drum machine and start recording instantly.
  • Built To Last - Quality deserves protection. The result of years of experience in analogue design combined with a focus on precision and detail, ASP800 packs a powerful feature set in a ergonomic 1RU rack mount. From itƒ??s beautifully crafted hand milled aluminium knobs to its all-metal construction, ASP800 will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.
