Rack-mountable 16-in/8-out audio interface for Mac, Windows and iPad with 8 ultra-HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) microphone preamps that provides clear sound quality and advanced features. Out of 8 line inputs, two are switchable to instrument level for direct guitar or bass recording, while two of balanced line outputs feature a level control on the front panel for monitoring. Eight XLR mic inputs have switchable +48 V phantom power to use with condenser microphone. Ultra-HDDA preamps deliver the cleanest and quietest operation in their class while delivering up to 56 dB of gain – ideal for any type of microphone (ribbon, condenser, dynamic). They also achieve EIN rating of -125 dBu, meaning their noise level is practically below the range of hearing.

All inputs can be used simultaneously for 16-track live recordings, and, in addition to interface mode, it can be used as a standalone mic preamp.
