  • Product Description

    Capture pristine, high-quality sound with Avid PRE. Featuring eight discrete, matched-transistor, hybrid mic preamp circuits, PRE provides a transparent signal path, and easily accommodates your mic, line, and direct instrument (DI) level inputs on all eight channels. Plus, you can place PRE anywhere in your studio, thanks to its remote-controllable operation, which you can access through Pro Tools HD software or an Avid control surface. And because PRE also functions as a standalone device, you can get the same sonic quality when working with any application and outboard sound module. 

    Features:

    • Eight high-performance, discrete, matched-transistor hybrid microphone pre-amplification circuits
    • Support for mic (XLR), direct instrument (DI), and line level inputs (1/4")
    • Each channel includes a high pass filter, phase reverse, 48V (phantom power), and -18 dB pad
    • Fully remote-controllable via Pro Tools software and Avid control surfaces; allows for the highest fidelity by keeping low-level signals close to the source
    • Selectable impedance matching for mic, line, or instrument inputs
    • MIDI IN/OUT/THu ports for remote operation
    • All features supported in stand-alone mode, making PRE an ideal analog front end for any recording system
