Expand via ADAT: more channels, more possibilities
ASP800 is the perfect tool for expanding your existing interface. Add 8 channels of Audient mic pre via ADAT and transform your current setup into the complete recording rig. Take on bigger sessions and easily record drum sets and/or bands. Use the line inputs to record analog instruments.
Audient Console mic pres: the professional sound you deserve
Tackle any project with the renowned Audient Console mic preamp, the same all-discrete high grade op amp circuit design found in the renowned ASP8024-HE recording console. Designed to deliver ultra-low noise and low distortion with a touch of classic analog warmth, ASP800's eight Audient Console mic pres will give you the professional sound you deserve.
Retro channels: add color to your audio
Designed to emulate tones often associated with 1960s tube designs and the coveted transformer zing of British audio in the 1970s, HMX & IRON give you the option to add analog tone to your recordings. HMX and IRON work on both the instrument and line inputs. One control simultaneously alters drive impedance, bass response, high frequency damping, phase shift, magnetic saturation and transient shaping, letting you instantly add character to your audio.
HMX harmonic saturator
By using discrete MOSFET technology HMX produces asymmetrical harmonic distortion, giving you the option to add richness and body to the pristine tone of the Audient mic preamp.
IRON transformer drive
Using a custom British transformer with a high voltage MOSFET drive network, IRON is designed to add saturation reminiscent of magnetic tape distortion and recreate that sparkly 'sounds like a record' signature of 1970s recording.
JFET instrument input: plug and play
As well as offering you 8 channels of Audient mic pres, ASP800 has two harmonically rich JFET DI inputs. Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, you can plug your guitar, bass, keyboard or drum machine straight in and start recording instantly.
Class-leading converters: it's all in the detail
ASP800's class-leading converter technology makes sure you capture every nuance, every detail of your audio with stunning clarity, letting you focus on getting the most from your session.
All-metal construction: built to last
With its all-metal construction, hand finished aluminum knobs and high grade component selection, ASP800 packs a powerful feature set into an ergonomic 1RU rack mount.
