      UPGRADE YOUR SOUND
      Transform your sessions into world class recordings with ASP880, the perfect addition to your set-up. Bypass the mic pres and converters in your current interface and achieve the same audio excellence as the top studios.

      WORLD CLASS MIC PRES
      Audient's renowned Class-A, console mic pre outshines the competition and gives you the same sonic quality of products costing three or four times the price. Capture the detail and excitement of your audio sources, all with a hint of analogue colouration that will sound stunning on any project!

      Developed by design legend David Dearden, our mic pre is used by thousands of professional studios around the world. With its versatile nature and accurate translation, the ASP880 will quickly become your ‘go to' mic pre.

      PRISTINE CONVERTER TECHNOLOGY
      ASP880 provides you with the highest grade converters from Burr Brown, the leaders in converter technology. The integral ADC guarantees you will have the best conversion possible.

      This isn't just the best converter in a mic pre either, it stands up against dedicated converters too. You can focus on the music and let ASP880 take care of the rest.

      PLUG AND PLAY
      As well as offering you 8 channels of mic pre and line inputs, ASP880 has two sonically accurate discrete JFET DI inputs, so you can plug your guitar or bass straight in.

      TAKE CONTROL:

      Bring your outboard in from the cold

      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!

      The A-D button allows ASP880 to function as an 8 channel mic pre while you use the converters separately in stand-alone mode.

      Say Goodbye to Pesky Low frequencies

      Lose those unwanted low frequencies with a simple to use variable high-pass filter. The result is a clean, ready to record signal.

      Wrap it up with a ribbon

      If you're partial to the character of ribbon mics, then ASP880 is made for you. Variable impedance allows you to match the pre to your favourite ribbon mic. Retain the punch and frequency response the mic was born with. It also works on your other mics, just more subtly.

      BUILT TO LAST

      ASP880 has been designed to last, its all-metal construction and hand milled aluminium knobs will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.

      All this in 1RU!
