Talk about a needed accessory in today’s digital workstation world and you will eventually settle upon the need for something like this.
The Behringer ADA8000 is an eight channel digital to analog converter which serves as an eight channel Mic pre amp that can convert the signal into eight discreet channels of ADAT Light Pipe audio at twenty four bit for insertion into any DAW that accepts ADAT and it keeps everything in the Digital domain so you get pristine audio sound and the best part is, it is affordable.
You have eight XLR inputs and eight quarter inch inputs so it is very versatile as a front end input for your Light Pipe equipped DAW.
The XLR inputs also are Phantom powered so you can save a few bucks on not buying a separate power unit for your Mics.
There is a front mounted gain control on each channel that is used on both inputs so you can control what is going out the other end to your Computer, the ADAT section has both an input and an output making it quite system flexible and the outputs are via eight balanced XLR connectors so if you use it as a Pre Amp or Phantom supply, the eight channels can go right into your main mixer with no worries or effort.
What does all this mean to you? A Lot.
If you have a DAW, the eight channels into Light Pipe will allow you to free up the usual eight channels of analog inputs on your interface for more things so you end up with eight channels of digital in and eight channels of analog in or a full sixteen channels of audio input into your computer, which is more than enough to record an average band on separate tracks on a live session or gig.
This is an item that I highly recommend you get for your studio or live recording set up.
I've had this for about 3 years now and I have used it both with my Digidesign 002R and I used to have a MOTU 896HD and it worked great with both of them, espically with my 002R since it only has 4 preamps on it and to record drums its great to have the option of having 12 preamps instead of just 4. But the thing I like most about this unit is the price. Considering how cheap this is there is no excuse to be without one if you are looking for more preamps on a budget. Obviously these are not the best preamps in the world, but if you are simply looking to have more inputs it won't color the sound too much, and with some good mics it doesn't sound bad at all. Until I upgrade with a few more high end preamps, I'll be holding onto mine for awhile.

florch's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" amazing for the price"
she is slave at the clock on my card.
here is frankly more than 2 years since I toured with a problem I loved the mic preamps are not cash too there is a LED clip anyway, and signal presence.
but I caught it in with my sound card output (ULN 2d)
I plug it dynamic microphones, static: bousouk DY, percussion, output effect processor,
I like my face came into use these handy.
you can assign what you want on the XLR balanced output (output returns and premix beats directly from my loopeur).
The pros: price, usability, connectivity,
the -: Phantom power is not individual quality preamps (should not dream that price 210 eur).
to live is the super model!
I expect to listen to the 820 ada preamps midas

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It helps out"
It blows you push a bit of the preamp is not very accurate, the dynamics is not terrible ... but when my Fireface 800 is full it can listen to a complete mix on the other hand ... I do not record anything through this bike

parisjojo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
PRICE .... the cot A Quality Manufacturing and opportunities Connections NUM / AN .....
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
The margin between rglage in trs trs is limited there is no power or rev you saturate quickly so watch what you put is in Input.
- How do you report qualitprix?
Not enough back for our answer .....
- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
There are now some new tools at Presonus, M-audio or can do the same, but something a recess of more levs see prices at least double .. but good from a 209 machine with which you say "No battery, no singing only Input keyboards, and other digital sources or I'll saturate ...." 500 and a machine that works and can be used in any situation, I think that there is no photo studio or in the benefits with using a Matoss probably does not help matters. ..
Therefore use Amateur, Yes, for the semi-pro or pro .... go your way

Forenz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
In: 8 XLR / jack
Out: 8 XLR
I use it for one month, what I like most is the cheapest is the sound quality. I tried a converter presonus before and there's no pictures of presonus converters are much better, it is four times more expensive too.
The value for money is excellent, however, there's way to work with anyway, the sound is "correct" I would say.
Given my budget I would do this choice. I use it to add 8 inputs to my EMU 1616M sound card so you can store a battery without a computer config "phew". For the rest I prefer to use my card converters EMU.

Arkonis's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
8 in and 8 out, branch optical fiber with my 01V96.
Not have to put a word clock, the device synchronizes
completely and without loss in 24 bit 44.1.
I use the 8 outs to grate at the outlet To scne returns.
In the 8 I use my back Keyboards / Sound Modules, so in line level.
Device indestructible, walks all the time, not least dcrochage,
and it does exactly what I expected from him.
Cot output, completed a good job, say nothing.
Cot inputs, does not compare to the analog inputs of my
01V96, comparing, we realize a loss of dynamics and precision
sound, so I have decided not to connect any microphone on the 8000 ADA in between.
The cot is good only at the inputs, no buzz or breath is clean.
The report price is trs good quality, for 239 euros, hard to beat that price
l and I could not spend more budget on a machine that I use
main output return scne.
I would do the purchase without worry unless I had 10 times more money to spend.
