The OctoPre MkII from Focusrite is an 8-channel microphone/line/instrument preamplifier with built-in 24-bit/96 kHz ADAT output. The unit is a powerful input upgrade for a Pro Tools LE or M-Powered system, any other digital audio workstation, an analog or digital console, or a stand-alone hard disk recorder.

The first 2 of the front panel inputs feature XLR combi connectors that accept microphone, line and Hi-Z inputs, the latter suitable for recording guitar or bass. Phantom power is available in groups of 4 inputs, while each channel features a direct analog out and a 10dB pad to increase the preamp's headroom. Five LED input metering is available per channel.

Designed not to clip, the OctoPre MkII is optimized for tracking drums and is able to handle extreme levels from sound sources like kick drums and snares
2 Hi-Z instrument inputs (DI) accessible on the front panel, ready for plugging in guitars and bass
Fast-acting 5-LED input meters on every channel provide clear reference of input levels, helping you to avoid analog or digital clipping

Direct outputs on every channel for routing and flexibility, especially in a live environment
Each mic-pre can be routed to the mixer's analog channels, with 2 mirrored ADAT outputs (44.1kHz) left free to send to digital recorders
