Octane is a multi-channel microphone preamp, offering eight channels of low-noise, high-gain, professional quality preamplification in a two-space rack mount chassis. Each channel has its own input level control, 20dB pad, and three-color LED level meter, with rear panel inputs on balanced XLR connectors. The unit also offers eight independent analog preamp outputs along with eight channels of A/D line inputs.
Octane provided front-panel high impedance instrument-level inputs on channels one and two, using independent preamps and level control for superior performance and better S/N ratio. Channels seven and eight offer M-S Matrix Encoding circuitry for Mid-Side stereo recording. Each even-numbered channel offers a phase reverse switch for easy stereo pairing and +48V phantom power is switchable in two groups of four channels.
