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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
