  • 8x Audient Console Mic Pres
  • Burr Brown AD Convertor Technology
  • Variable Input Impedance
  • Variable High-Pass Filters
  • 8x Insert Points Between Preamps and ADC


Intended for professional recording studios, the Audient ASP880 offers eight Class-A microphone preamplifiers from the company's consoles designed by David Dearden via XLR/TRS combo connectors as well as Burr Brown analogue to digital conversion in an all-metal 1RU 19" rackmountable enclosure. It also features a pair of front panel Class-A JFET 1/4" DI instrument inputs for recording guitars, keyboards, drum machines, and more.

Each channel features a selectable +48V phantom power button, a selectable pad, a selectable polarity reverse switch, a variable high-pass filter, and a switch for inserting a signal processor between the preamplifier and A/D convertor. A front-panel button allows you to select and lock the sample rate of the convertor at 44.1, 48, 88.2, or 96 kHz. Digital outputs are provided by rear-panel ADAT, AES, and SPDIF connections. A word-clock input is also included.


Mic Pres
Uses renowned Class-A console mic-pre design that was optimised over the course of 18 years by David Dearden

A/D Convertor
Uses high-grade Burr Brown conversion

Plug and Play
Offers eight channels of mic-pre and line inputs as well as two discrete JFET DI inputs

Analogue Insert
Allows you to insert signal processors between the preamplifier and the A/D convertor

Allows you to selectively attenuate unwanted low frequencies

Variable Impedance
Allows you to match the preamplifier to ribbon microphones

Features all-metal construction and hand-milled aluminium knobs
