Product Description

Focusrite OctoPre MkII Dynamic

 gives you 8 channels of Focusrite microphone pre-amplification, 8 VCA-based Red 3-derived compressors, and built-in 24-bit/96kHz digital inputs and outputs. The OctoPre MkII Dynamic can act as a feature-rich expansion upgrade for any digital audio workstation, or an ideal expansion for any analogue or digital console, or hard disk recorder.

The OctoPre MkII Dynamic's digital inputs and outputs allow you take full advantage of often-neglected ADAT I/O - perfect for expanding the number of mic-pre inputs on your interface or for offering analogue monitoring from any digital ADAT feed.

The OctoPre MkII Dynamic sets the standard for modern, compact, multi-channel recording expansions, thanks to this entire package fitting into a single 1U chassis complementing Focusrite's Saffire PRO range, and all controls adjustable from the front fascia.
