Eight Focusrite Mic Pres with Compression and Excellent A-D and D-A Conversion
Focusrite's preamp legacy forms the foundation of OctoPre MkII Dynamic, with preamps optimized to handle extreme levels from sound sources like acoustic drums. With eight channels of Focusrite microphone preamplification, eight VCA-based Red 3-derived compressors and built-in 24-bit/96k Hz digital inputs and outputs, OctoPre MkII Dynamic lets you make the most of often-neglected ADAT I/O; ideal for expanding the number of mic pre-inputs on your interface or for providing analog monitoring from any digital ADAT feed. With this entire package fitting into a single 1U chassis complementing Focusrite’s Saffire PRO range, and all controls adjustable from the front of the unit, OctoPre MkII Dynamic is a modern, compact, multi-channel recording expansion.
Eight Single-dial Focusrite Compressors
A single dial gets you to the right amount of compression, fast. These new VCA-based, feed-forward compressors model the character of the celebrated Focusrite Red 3.
Compress Transparently or with Effect
The classic soft-knee design achieves beautifully transparent compression that caresses your sound. Focusrite’s unique “More” switch doubles the ratio to deliver compression with effect.
Built-in Eight-channel 24-bit/96kHz Digital Outputs and Inputs
Make the most of your interface's ADAT input for tracking, with eight channels of analog to digital conversion via ADAT, boasting a dynamic range performance of 110dB. Switchable from the front panel, digital to analog conversion via ADAT provides analog monitoring of any digital ADAT feed, as well as the ability to clock from any ADAT device.
State-of-the-art Clocking Solutions
OctoPre MkII Dynamic's internal clock delivers a jitter performance of +/- 20 PPM. For external clocks, industry-standard JetPLL jitter elimination technology is employed.
Two High-quality Instrument Inputs
OctoPre MkII Dynamic’s first two channels feature DIs, ready for you to plug in your guitars and bass. No expensive external DI is required.
Additional Key Features
- Input clip and Compression active LEDs on every channel
- Phantom power available on every channel (switched in two groups: 1-4 and 5-8)
- 24-bit resolution, 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz sampling rates
- Internal clocking, master clocking and external clocking via BNC or ADAT

I'm currently using this and a Saffire Pro 40 into a PreSonus 1818VSL for drums, and I'm very pleased with this unit. The pres offer plenty of clean gain, are neutral in color from what I can tell, and handle the erratic, peaky signals you get from drums beautifully.
Operation is simple, of course: plug it in, turn it on, and you're good to go. I appreciate that they included dual lightpipes for 8 channels out at 96kHz, I just wish my AudioBox had two ADAT ins. I also like the front panel; I like having some inputs up front while also leaving plenty of space for level indicators and various controls. Reliability has not been an issue so far, which is to be expected, but the unit feels solidly built and I expect it will hold up well.
What else is there to say? It's a solid 8-pre box for a reasonable cost.
