The Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic 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 Dynamic can transmit and receive 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 interface to which it is connected is able to handle the same number of channels at the sample rate in use. Each channel includes a switchable, "one-knob" compressor which helps to ensure that the dynamic range of signals in the OctoPre are kept under control as they are routed to your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation).
The Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic is an ideal "expansion" unit for adding up to eight more inputs to any audio interface with ADAT I/O. The Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic is a bidirectional unit: it is also equipped with ADAT format digital inputs, and a balanced analogue output from each channel. It incorporates an ADAT-to-LINE mode, making it a perfect interface for routing tracks from your DAW to an analogue mixing console. The Scarlett OctoPre Dynamic 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-DYNA comes with a 2 year warranty.
