True Systems 8 overview

  • 1Description

The Precision 8i from True Sysytems is an eight channel microphone preamp designed to provide the detailed, transparent sonic performance necessary for the highest quality direct tracking and live sound applications. Sonically accurate discrete FET instrument inputs are available on two of the eight channels, for recording or live sound applications in which realistic and unaffected sound quality is desired.

The preamps use a high-voltage composite architecture with discrete devices, plus integrated circuits. They offer very low noise and distortion as well as high headroom. The totally balanced dual-servo design eliminates nearly all capacitors in the audio path, and is DC-coupled at the output. All this results in a very detailed and transparent sound quality.

The unit is ideal for location recording due to its eight-channel/single-rack unit format, smooth continuous gain controls, useful level metering, and easy interconnect. The integral MS decoder provides creative spacial image control that is particularly useful in attaining an exciting stereo image with minimum effort and microphone repositioning. The 5-segment peak-hold level metering with selectable peak reference allows rapid optimization of program levels between the Precision 8 and devices to which it is interfaced.
