Focusrite announced the imminent arrival of their latest eight channel pre-amp.
The mic pre combines Saffire PRO pre-amps with digital conversion and JetPLL jitter elimination technology. The digital output is designed to allow users to make the most of often-neglected ADAT inputs; ideal for expanding the number of mic-pres for interfaces such as the Saffire PRO 24, according to Focusrite.
With line outputs on every channel, each mic-pre can be routed to a separate channel on an analogue mixer with the ADAT output left free to send a copy to a digital recorder.
OctoPre MkII has been optimised for drum recording. Designed not to clip, 10dB pads are provided across each channel, while the gain range of the pre-amps has been tailored to handle extreme levels from sound sources like the kick drum, the company assures. Finally, OctoPre MkII's first two channels also feature DI’s, so it can also turn its hand to recording Guitar and Bass.
The device also features 5-LED input metering on every channel, switchable phantom power and a variety of internal and external clocking solutions.
OctoPre MkII will be available to purchase late in September 2009. For a list of Focusrite's exclusive international distributors, visit www.focusrite.com
