8-channel mic preamp with HMX and IRON.

The Audient ASP800 8-channel microphone preamplifier is an audio powerhouse designed with expandability in mind, making it the perfect addition to your audio interface. Upgrade your current setup with eight channels of Audient's Console mic preamps, eight line outputs, class-leading converters, two JFET DIs and two Retro Channels with powerful tone control.

Audient Console Mic Pres

Tackle any project with the Audient Console mic preamp, the same discrete circuit design found in the renowned ASP8024-HE recording console. Designed to deliver ultralow noise and low distortion with a touch of classic analog warmth, the ASP800's eight Audient Console mic pres provide the professional sound your projects deserve.

Retro-Style Channels

Built to emulate tones often associated with 1960s tube designs and the coveted transformer zing of British audio in the 1970s, HMX and IRON offer the option to add analog tone to your recordings. By using discrete MOSFET technology, HMX produces asymmetrical harmonic distortion, adding richness and body. IRON is designed to add saturation reminiscent of magnetic tape distortion and recreate that sparkly signature sound of 1970s recordings.

Plug and Play

As well as offering eight channels of mic pre, ASP800 has two harmonically rich JFET DI inputs that replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier. Plug your guitar, bass, keyboard or drum machine in and start recording instantly.

Expand via ADAT

ASP800 is the perfect tool for expanding your existing interface. Add eight channels of Audient mic pre via ADAT and transform your current setup into the complete recording rig. Easily record drums and full bands, take on bigger sessions and use line inputs to record analog instruments.

IRON Transformer Drive

Using a custom British transformer with a high-voltage MOSFET drive network, IRON is designed to add saturation reminiscent of magnetic tape distortion and recreate that sparkly, “sounds like a record” signature of 1970s recording. One control simultaneously alters drive impedance, bass response, high-frequency damping, phase shift, magnetic saturation and transient shaping, letting you instantly add character to your audio.

Class-Leading Converters

ASP800’s class-leading converter technology makes sure you capture every nuance, every detail of your audio with stunning clarity, letting you focus on getting the most from your session.

All-Metal Construction

With its all-metal construction, hand-finished aluminum knobs and high-grade component selection, ASP800 packs a powerful feature set into an ergonomic 1RU rackmount.

  • Eight superb Class-A mic preamplifiers
  • All channels feature -15dB pads for increased headroom when recording
  • All channels feature Combi-XLR inputs with 1/4" TRS line inputs available
  • Two discrete JFET instrument inputs
  • Two RETRO channels with dual-stage color saturation controls—HMX and IRON
  • Balanced DB23 analog line outputs
  • Clean and stable 48V phantom power on every channel
  • 70dB of clean gain split across two gain stages for increased gain bandwidth
  • Polarity reverse to enable phase coherent recording on the first two channels—great for kick, snare or overheads
  • Integrated Burr-Brown PCM4202 ADCs with 116dB dynamic range and SMUX ADAT outputs for 96kHz operation
  • Fanless, low-noise linear PSU for global operation—100, 120, 220 and 230V
