    -pr-amp / converter 8 votes and A / D conversion
    -2 Among HI / instruments, pad, low cut, phase inverter (TT both channels), 48V (for four channels), MS based on channels 7 and 8, chantillonage 24 bit / 44 or 48
    -Jacks XLR and Jack outputs for individual channels and / or insert

    USE

    -config simple with qq gaps: Supply 48 communes with 4 channels, output = insert requires going through the internal concerto if you want to meter inserts
    clear and well done -Manual ... in French!

    SOUND QUALITY

    good -pr-amps holding ractifs fairly, respecting the signals. Good mid-range, a little less fine and ractif as RME, but all the same - expensive too ...

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    -Digital complete, depending indite MS
    -not evil between the range (Mackie 1202), through Tascam (M80) ,, RME (quad) Aphex 207, the high-end typTrident S20), Studer 169 (I love ) and Belun-Pultec (basically no test lamp better ...)
    _qualit 8/10 prices (for common power supply 48, the imcommode transformer and size (2 units)
    -enregitr a battery (reggae) directly with convertos paralllement and the rest of the group on RME / Studer by convertos RME ... no dcallage (or I become deaf!)
    -ma time in other complment exellents pre-amp (Studer / Belun / Reverend / Aphex) very well
    or to the convenient and reliable live (good conversion, no bp stall sound card
    in short it is quite well done Close enough to prcis pro and MS function is not a gimmick. In short - 400 in occas is the bonheur.Voir the new audio 1u model M with the same pre-amp if you do not need the new MS - 400

    8 transistor preamp channels, 8 line outputs 8 channels ADAT output.
    8 line inputs and XLR jack (one cancels the other which allows the use of input-output lines circuit insert a little hassle .... and barbaric as wiring!)
    No effect on the machine, in fact if there is one and not least, the mastering on channels 7 and 8 and is seriously stunning! In short, the matrissage allows calculation to generate a signal sterréo very balanced, it nessecite a directional microphone and an 8 cardoide placed in the axis of the source ...

    UTILIZATION

    Config very simple, 48v Actival pairs of channels (we would have preferred inland ...)
    Manual a bit difficult (especially for the wiring insert mode when using a compressor!)

    SOUND QUALITY

    Sound, essential part:
    Compared to the preamp + converter Tascam (FW 1884, DM 2000), maps hoontec ADDA 2000, the sound is much better defined in the ear as the control (sampling, conversion and analysis with sound forge two identical signals processed by difféents the preamp / converters.
    The headroom is more than correct.
    No particular color ...
    Note: the converters are slower than those fitted to Tascam consoles (sorry it's my only reference point), despite a word clock connection (master as a slave), the signals sent out by the offset of Octane from 17 to 22 samples at 44.1 kHz corresponding to a lag of about 0.4 ms to know when using a set of simultaneous micro ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have octane since July 2004 (almost a year to the test date).
    I like the transparency, I regret the very slight delay, we should not dramatize 0.4 ms for a gap in the knowledge becomes audible from 7 ms! But if two simultaneous registry renewal difference and devices on certain frequencies, a phase inversion is possible ...
    This is my fourth A / D and D / A is my favorite!
    Value for money, we pay for and even a little more (mastering).
    This is the preamp / converter perform best in value, however, I collect then the time it will prchaine Focusrite
