Product description

style:MkII Dynamic

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.
