The one rack-space 8pre 16×12 USB audio interface turns a laptop or desktop Mac or PC into a 24-bit 96kHz recording studio with eight mic inputs, 8-channel ADAT optical digital I/O and MIDI I/O. When not connected to a computer, the 8pre can function as an 8-channel analog-to-digital converter, making it two products in one. The 8pre front panel provides a five-segment level meter, 48V phantom power button, 20 dB pad button and trim knob for all 8 mic inputs. Two banks of ADAT optical provide 8 channels digital I/O, even when recording in high definition at 88.2 or 96 kHz. The TRS main outs can be connected directly to powered studio monitors with front panel volume control. Connect the 8pre via ADAT optical to another optical-equipped interface or mixer to add 8 mic inputs, seamlessly integrated into the other device’s mixing environment. If you already own an optical-equipped MOTU audio interface, the 8pre is the perfect way to add 8 mic inputs directly to your system. The 8pre as your primary audio interfaceUse the included CueMix software to mix all 16 inputs from your computer. Eight channels of ADAT optical I/O make the 8pre an ideal companion for a dHi-speed USB 2.0 audio interface for Mac and Windows provides 16 inputs with 8 mic preamps and 12 outputs including separate phone and main outs for all the basic I/O you need for a powerful desktop studio.Eight XLR/TRS “combo jack” mic inputs connect up to eight mics, or mix and match mics with guitars, synths, drum machines and other analog input signals.Flexible analog inputs each provides a crystal-clear preamp (for both the XLR and TRS input), 24-bit 96 kHz converters, individually switchable 48-volt phantom power, 20 dB pad and front-panel trim controls. Mix and match condenser and dynamic microphones as your needs require.Eight channels of ADAT optical I/O provides two sets of optical connectors to provide eight channels of optical digital I/O even at high samples rates (88.2 or 96 kHz).Operates as an optical expander connect the 8pre to any ADAT optical compatible device (another audio interface, a digital mixer, etc.) to add 8 additional mic inputs seamlessly integrated into the mixing environment of the host device.Discrete ins/outs there’s no channel sharing in the 8pre; the mic inputs, ADAT optical I/O, headphone out and main outs are all handled as separate channels.CueMix DSP near-zero monitoring system.Multiple CueMix DSP mixes create up to eight different monitor mixes for the main outs and headphones. Add send/return loops for outboard gear with no latency.Front-panel metering five-segment meters for all analog inputs, plus status lights for clock and interface/expander mode.Sample-accurate MIDI connect a MIDI controller and/or sound module with no separate interface needed. MIDI I/O is sample-accurate with supporting software.Expandable add additional MOTU 8pre, UltraLite,
