The ART Pro MPA II can be configured for dual mono or stereo operation with selectable mid/side mic support, summing the adjacent channel, to decode left/right signals.
Each microphone input circuit, with selectable 48V phantom power, features variable input impedance which can radically vary the overall performance of any high quality dynamic or ribbon microphone.
The Pro MPA II can operate at either a low or high plate voltage on the 2 integrated hand-selected 12AX7 tubes for wider variation of preamp tone and performance. Large back-lit analog VU output meters display output levels while multi-colored LED arrays show tube gain.
Housed in a standard 2U space rack mountable steel chassis, with CNC routed black anodized aluminium face panel, the Pro MPA II is designed to deliver years of reliable operation in the studio, production facility, or on the road for live sound reinforcement.
As a splitter: the SPLITComPro provides one direct-coupled output and one isolated output from a single microphone. Applications include sending the direct output to the main or FOH mixer, and the second isolated output to a monitor or recording mixer. The main mic output passes phantom power from the main mixer to the amin mic input for use with condenser microphones. The Phantom power is blocked from passing to the isolated mic output.
Aa a combiner: The SPLITComPro provides one output from 2 microphone inputs. The phase switch can be used to invert the relative phase of the isolated mic input. Applications include dual micing of percussion instruments, choirs, and instrument amplifiers. The Phantom power passes through each output to their respective input, (main to main, isolated to isolated), however the phantom power is blocked from passing between the main and isolated signal paths. Only the audio passes between the main and isolated signal paths (it is present on all inputs and outputs).
Its primary application is to be used with a microphone. However it's also an exceptional direct box, impedance matching, amplifying and improving the sound of any instrument plugged into it.
The first step to audio excellence:
Whether you're recording drums or simply need more channels, ASP800 is the perfect tool for expanding your existing interface via ADAT. Its flexible and intuitive feature set will transform your current setup into the complete recording rig, perfectly at home recording both acoustic and electronic instruments.
The professional sound you deserve:
We are the only company that use the same Class-A mic pre design throughout our entire product range, whether you're in the studio with an Audient ASP8024 console or on the road with ASP800, you're always guaranteed the same world class Audient sound. Developed by design legend David Dearden and optimised over 18 years, our mic pre is used by thousands of professional studios around the world. With its versatile nature and smooth tone, the ASP800 will quickly become your 'go to' mic pre.
Brilliance on the inside enables brilliance on the outside:
ASP800 provides you with high performance 118-dB AD converters from Burr Brown, the leaders in converter technology. Quality in the analogue stages of our design comes from years of experience as analogue console designers, and when coupled with outstanding converter technology it enables you to hear audio as it's supposed to sound. The importance of converters should never be underestimated. Experience audio the Audient way.
Take control of your audio:
We're known for our super clean mic pres but that doesn't mean we don't understand the importance of adding colour. Whether you need to add growl to a bass guitar or make those vocals sparkle, ASP800's revolutionary harmonic generation circuitry has got you covered.
Retro Channels 1 & 2 feature two unique variable harmonic COLOUR controls per channel - HMX & IRON. Designed to emulate tones often associated with 1960's tube designs and the coveted transformer zing of British audio in the 1970's, HMX & IRON will add new dimension to your audio by providing warm, sparkly tones. Better still, you can combine them to get anywhere in between!
We know that plenty of engineers love the sound of tubes/valves and if you're one of them, then you're going to love HMX. Travel back in time with ASP800's very own custom harmonic distortion control. Similar to vintage valve preamplifier designs of the 1960s, HMX provides a sweet, thick tone that will sound incredible on anything from drums to electric guitars. (TIP! Try it on bass synth, or 808 too!)
By using discrete MOSFET technology, HMX produces asymmetrical harmonic distortion giving you the option to add richness and body to the pristine tone of the Audient mic preamp, D.I or line input. Take control of your sound and bring your audio to life, 1960's style.
Magnetic Transformer Drive:
Say hello to Audient's BRAND NEW British transformer saturator - IRON. A testament to innovation, IRON uses a custom British transformer with a high voltage MOSFET drive network designed to recreate that sparkly, "sounds like a record" signature of 1970's recording. With one control that simultaneously alters drive impedance, bass response, high frequency damping, phase shift, magnetic saturation and transient shaping - IRON can instantly add sparkle, growl and so much more with one twist of a knob! It sounds killer on snare, bass, acoustic guitar and anything that needs some extra bite.
Plug in and be inspired:
As well as offering you 8 channels of mic pre, ASP800 has two harmonically rich JFET D.I inputs. Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, you can plug your guitar, bass, keyboard or drum machine and start recording instantly.
Quality deserves protection:
The result of years of experience in analogue design combined with a focus on precision and detail, ASP800 packs a powerful feature set in a ergonomic 1RU rack mount. From it's beautifully crafted hand milled aluminium knobs to its all-metal construction, ASP800 will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.
Audient Console mic pres - the professional sound you deserve:
We are the only company that use the same Class-A mic pre design throughout our entire product range, whether you're in the studio with an Audient console or on the road with ASP880, you're always guaranteed the same world class Audient sound.
Pristine converter technology - brilliance on the inside enables brilliance on the outside:
ASP880 provides you with the highest grade converters from Burr Brown, the leaders in converter technology. The integral ADC guarantees you will have the best conversion possible. This isn't just the best converter in a mic pre either, it stands up against dedicated converters too. Focus on the music and let ASP880 take care of the rest.
Grows with your needs:
Transform your sessions into world class recordings with ASP880, the perfect addition to your set-up. Bypass the mic pres and converters in your current interface and achieve the same audio excellence as the top studios.
Variable High Pass Filter - quickly remove unwanted low frequencies:
Get it right at the source and lose those unwanted low frequencies with a simple to use variable high-pass filter. Take control of low end rumble, reduce proximity effect and more by quickly sweeping anywhere between 25Hz and 250Hz. The result is a clean, ready to record signal.
Variable Impedence - get the best from your microphones:
If you're partial to the character of ribbon mics, then ASP880 is made for you. Variable impedance allows you to match the pre to your favourite ribbon mic. Retain the punch and frequency response the mic was born with. It also works on your other mics, just more subtly.
Plug in and be inspired:
As well as offering you 8 channels of Audient mic pre, ASP880 has two harmonically rich JFET D.I inputs. Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, you can plug your guitar, bass, keyboard or drum machine straight in and start recording instantly.
Built to last - quality deserves protection:
ASP880 has been designed to last, its all-metal construction and hand milled aluminium knobs will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road. All this in 1RU!
