NEW PREAMP FROM NEW AUDIENT — AudioTechnology

By

Audient AP880 for web

 

Audient has used Musikmesse to launch its first product since the company changed hands late last year. The ASP880 is an eight channel microphone preamp and ADC with a selection of digital outputs, ADAT, AES and S/PDIF, but note that while Audient are marketing the ASP880 as the “perfect” front end for your DAW, there’s no USB or Firewire port for using the ASP880 as a more straightforward audio interface – you’re going to need tapping into those digital outs. An A-D button allows the ASP880 to function as an 8 channel mic pre while you use the converters separately in stand-alone mode. Audient has catered for those who prefer outboard processing by providing insert points on all eight preamps, and two of the channels have DI inputs for instruments including pad switches. Variable high pass filters and input impedance (for ribbon mics) are also squeezed into the 1RU chassis. Full specs and lots of pictures at www.audient.com
