The Scarlett OctoPre is an eight-channel pre-amplifier for use with microphone, line and instrument input signals. It converts the inputs into multi-channel, 24-bit digital audio at sample rates up to 192 kHz. The digital outputs are in ADAT format on optical TOSLINK connectors, which can be easily routed to ADAT inputs on your studio recording system, or any other ADAT-equipped interface using optical cables. The Scarlett OctoPre can transmit eight channels of audio at sample rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, or 96 kHz, or four channels at 176.4 or 192 kHz provided, of course, that the receiving interface is able to handle the same number of channels at the sample rate in use. The Scarlett OctoPre is an ideal "expansion" unit for adding up to eight more inputs to any audio interface with ADAT I/O. The Scarlett OctoPre can be easily synchronised with other digital audio equipment in your studio, either as a slave to an external word clock signal, or by acting as the master clock source itself.
The AMS-SCARLETT-OCTOPRE comes with a 2 year warranty.
