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.
World Class Pre-Amps
Developed by design legend David Dearden and optimised over 18 years, the Audient mic pre is used by thousands of professional studios around the world. With its versatile nature and smooth tone, the ASP800 will quickly become your 'go to' mic pre.
By using the same class-A microphone preamp throughout their entire product range Audient ensure you receive the same high fidelity and crystal clear tone from there high end consoles to their rack mountable microphone preamps.
Renowned for their super clean microphone preamps Audient are not afraid to show a bit of variety and the addition of two innovative retro channels provides unique tonal shaping from bass growls to vocal sparkle.
The Retro Channels feature two unique variable harmonic colour controls per channel (HMX & IRON). 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 will add new dimension to your audio by providing warm, sparkly tones. Better still, you can combine them to get a sound anywhere in between.
HMX - MOSFET Drive
With plenty of engineers around the world chasing the iconic sound of tubes/valves Audient have created a simple and cost effective solution. Travel back in time with ASP800's very own custom harmonic distortion control. Similar to vintage valve pre-amplifier designs of the 1960s, HMX provides a sweet, thick tone that will sound incredible on anything from drums to electric guitars.
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, D.I or line input. Take control of your sound and bring your audio to life, 1960s style.
IRON - Magnetic Transformer Drive
A testament to innovation, Iron uses a custom British transformer with a high voltage MOSFET drive network designed to recreate that sparkly, "sounds like a record" signature of 1970's recording. With one control that simultaneously alters drive impedance, bass response, high frequency damping, phase shift, magnetic saturation and transient shaping the Iron control can instantly add sparkle, growl and so much more with one twist of a knob. It sounds killer on snare, bass, acoustic guitar and anything that needs some extra bite.
A/D Converter Technology
The ASP800 provides you with high performance 118-dB AD converters from Burr Brown, the leaders in converter technology. Quality in the analogue stages of our design comes from years of experience as analogue console designers, and when coupled with outstanding converter technology it enables you to hear audio as it's supposed to sound.
