The ISA-828 from Focusrite is an eight-channel microphone preamp, featuring original ISA transformer-based preamps with the signature high-end Focusrite sound.
The microphone input stage provides a variable impedance circuit comprising four input impedance settings. Maximum gain is a very healthy 80dB, for use with low output dynamic and ribbon microphones.
Channels one through four include DI inputs that feature high and low impedance options, delivering a comprehensive and accessible DI solution. An eight-channel optional analog to digital converter card makes the ISA-828 the perfect front-end for a DAW.
Eight channel microphone preamp featuring original ISA transformer-based preamps
Each channel can accept either microphone or line input
Channels 1 - 4 also accept instrument inputs for guitars and basses, or vintage synthesizers with high impedance outputs
Microphone input can deliver up to 80dB of gain, particularly useful when working with very low output dynamic and ribbon microphones
Phantom power and phase switches provided on each input
High-pass filter on each channel provides a 75Hz knee frequency with 18dB/octave roll-off
Variable microphone impedance with four settings of 600, 1.4k, 24k and 6.8kΩ
Six-LED input meter per channel
Optional eight-channel 192kHz analog-to-digital converter card provides eight channels A/D conversion, delivering a dynamic range of 122dB and jitter at <250 picoseconds
