World Class Audio

The Audient ASP880 8-Channel Class A Microphone Preamplifier and ADC is the perfect addition to your setup, giving you the same sonic quality as products costing three or four times the price, outshining its competition. Capture the detail and excitement of your audio sources, all with a hint of analogue colouration that will sound stunning on any project! With its versatile nature and accurate translation, the ASP880 is used by thousands of professional studios around the world, and will soon become your 'go to' mic preamp. The integral ADC will stand up against any dedicated converter, and will guarantee you the best conversion possible, enabling you to focus on the music.

Versatile Functionality

The ASP880 works perfect with ribbon mics, with variable impedance that lets you match the preamp to your favourite mic to maximize frequency response and punch. You can also eliminate unwanted rumble and LF artifacts with the variable highpass filters. The two great-sounding discrete JFET DI inputs allow you to simply plug your guitar or bass straight in. Ever wanted to add compression or EQ to your signal before going to the computer? Well with ASP880 you can. Simply insert any analogue processor before the converters - it's as easy as that! Built for a lifetime, the all-metal construction and hand milled aluminium knobs will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.
