8/10

Along with its iD14 audio interface and monitoring controller, Audient introduces at Musikmesse a new version of its ASP mic preamp.

The new Audient ASP800 still features 8 mic preamps in a rack format but the manufacturer boosted the input levels with up to 70 dB of gain, added a pad to each channel, and introduces the Retro Channels (ch 1 and 2) with mic and DI (instrument/line) inputs and a combination of HMX and Iron buttons with Mosfet Drive and Magnetic Drive knobs. 

These Retro Channels are designed to reproduce a less linear response and color the signal as classic tube and British transformer preamp could do in the 1960s and 1970s. The HMX/Mosfet Drive controls add asymmetrical harmonic distortion thanks to a discrete MOSFET technology for a typical 60s sound, while the Iron/Magnetic Transformer Drive offer a brand new Audient saturation technology that uses a custom British transformer and a high-voltage MOSFET drive circuit to recreate the sound of 1970s preamps.

Features:

  • 8 Audient mic preamps
  • 2 Retro Channels with HMX and Iron saturation types
  • 2 discrete JFET instrument inputs on the Retro channels
  • Burr-Brown A/D converters (118 dB)
  • Analog line outputs
  • ADAT input for connection expansion
  • Word Clock input
  • iD ScrollControl mode

Details of the ASP 800 are online at audient.com/products/asp800.

We met the Audient team at Musikmesse for a presentation of the iD14 (see this news for details) and this new preamp:
