Audient ASP800 8 Channel Mic Preamp with HMX & Iron

ASP800 is an audio powerhouse designed with expandability in mind, making it the perfect addition to your audio interface. Upgrade your current setup with 8 channels of Audient’s Console mic preamps, 8 line inputs, class leading converters, two JFET D.I’s and two Retro Channels with powerful tone control.

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.

The professional sound you deserve
Tackle any project with the renowned Audient Console Mic Preamp, the same discrete circuit design found in our renowned recording console the ASP8024-HE. Designed to deliver ultra-low noise and low distortion with a touch of classic analogue warmth, ASP800’s eight Audient Console mic pre’s will give you the professional sound you deserve.

Add colour to your audio
Designed to emulate tones often associated with 1960’s tube designs and the coveted transformer zing of British audio in the 1970’s, HMX & IRON give you the option to add analogue tone to your recordings.

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.

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 1970’s recording.

How does it work?
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.

Plug and play
As well as offering you 8 channels of mic pre, ASP800 has two harmonically rich JFET D.I inputs. Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, you can plug your guitar, bass, keyboard or drum machine and start recording instantly.

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.
