The team from Audient talk with James from Pro Tools Expert about the new Audient ASP800 8 Channel Microphone Preamplifier and ADC.
The ASP800 provides 8 channels of Audient’s renowned console mic preamps, class-leading Burr-Brown converter technology, two JFET D.I’s and two Retro channels with revolutionary tone control. It has balanced analogue line outputs, ADAT output for expandability, word clock Input and an all-metal enclosure.
Audient claim they are the only company that use the same Class-A mic pre design throughout their entire product range, whether you’re in the studio with an Audient ASP8024 console or on the road with ASP800, its the same mic pre.
Developed by design legend David Dearden and optimised over 18 years, their mic pre is used all over the world. The retro channels 1 & 2 feature two unique variable harmonic colour controls per channel - HMX & IRON. These have been designed to emulate tones often associated with 1960’s tube designs and the coveted transformer zing of British audio in the 1970’s.
