  • 8 Channel Microphone Preamp
  • 8 Balanced TRS Line/Instrument Inputs with Hi-Z Option
  • Large Frequency Range (200kHz) with EMI Input Filtering
  • Symmetrical Hi-Pass Filter Per Channel
  • Provides Near Click-Free Gain Changes


The Micstasy from RME is a full range, hi-end eight channel microphone/line preamp combined with an analogue to digital converter. The unit allows for amplification and digitisation of all analogue signal sources, including high-level stage signals, studio signals, lower level and high-impedance instruments, or dynamic, condenser or ribbon microphones.

The analogue and digital outputs can be used simultaneously. Microphone and line inputs are available on the rear panel, while instrument inputs are available for all eight channels on the front panel. Each channel can be controlled individually in respect to input levels and phase, phantom power and filter switching, or grouped in any combination, up to all eight channels.

Digital outputs include eight channels of AES/EBU and dual ADAT Lightpipe connectors. Both formats can function at high sample rates. Wordclock I/O is available on dedicated BNC connectors. To avoid degrading signal integrity, RME chose to avoid the use of limiters and provide instead automatic gain reduction with selectable threshold. Even with this feature engaged, any channel can still be adjusted manually.

The Micstacy will function equally well on the road as in the studio. Aside from a microphone preamp, the unit can function as a splitter box for stage use, distribute digital signal and also includes features like Intelligent Clock Control (ICC), SyncCheck, SteadyClock, TotalGain, AutoSet, MIDI over MADI and remote control via MADI and MIDI.
