The DigiMax D8 from Presonus is an eight-channel microphone preamplifier, featuring eight Class-A XMAX microphone preamps, coupled with eight-channels of analog-to-digital conversion via an ADAT digital output. Each of the preamps include a direct output (in addition to the digital output), a variable trim control, LED metering, a 20dB pad and +48V phantom power (switchable in pairs).

The front panel features two 1/4", Hi-Z instrument inputs for plugging-in electric guitars. The balanced 1/4" TRS outputs on the real panel allow the unit to be used as a standalone microphone preamp with any analog mixing console. The unit also includes Wordclock sync input for ultra-low jitter and robust synchronization, making the DigiMax D8 a perfect front-end solution for any DAW with an ADAT optical input.

          I will be recording my band live and going straight to DAT with this machine. It has just enough channels to get the whole band (including the drummer). I'm expecting great things.

              Add it to the DigiDesign 003 and you get an extra 8 Pre-Amped channels! If you are going to set it up that way, make sure to also pick up the cabling to connect them.
