Focusrite OctoPre MKII – No Longer Available

Eight-channel mic preamp with built-in 24 bit/96 kHz ADAT output
MFR# AMS-OCTOPRE-MKII

Product Description

With eight channels of Focusrite pre-amplification and a built-in 24 bit / 96 kHz ADAT output, OctoPre MkII is Focusrite’s powerful input upgrade for your Pro Tools system, or any digital audio workstation.  It’s also a great expansion for any analogue or digital console, or hard disk recorder.

The digital output allows users to make the most of often-neglected ADAT inputs; ideal for expanding the number of mic-pre inputs on your interface.  Connect OctoPre MkII to your audio interface’s ADAT input to create a high quality, multi-channel recording solution, ideal for tracking drums, as well guitars, keyboards, vocals and more.

Features:

  • Eight High Quality Award-winning Focusrite Pre-amps
    The best sounding multi-channel mic-pre in its class.
  • Built-in eight channel 24 bit / 96 kHz digital output
    Make the most of your interface’s ADAT input. OctoPre connects via its built-in lightpipe output, with a ‘real world’ dynamic range performance of 110dB.
  • Mic-pres optimised for tracking drums
    OctoPre MkII is designed not to clip, with pre-amps optimised to handle extreme levels from sound sources like kick drum and snare.
  • Two quality Hi-Z instrument inputs
    OctoPre MkII’s first two channels feature DI’s, ready for you to plug in your Guitars and Bass, instantly accessible on the front fascia.
  • 5 LED input metering on every channel
    OctoPre MkII’s fast-acting 5-LED input meters provide clear reference of input levels, helping you to avoid analogue or digital clipping.
  • -10dB Pads on every channel
    OctoPre MkII is drum-ready, with 10dB pads to stop hot signals from overdriving the microphone pre-amp.
  • Direct outputs on every channel
    For routing and flexibility, especially in the live environment. Each mic-pre can be routed to the mixer’s analogue channels, with two mirrored ADAT outputs (44.1) left free to send to digital recorders.
  • 48V Phantom power available on every channel
    Switched in two groups (1-4 and 5-8) every channel is capable of supplying phantom power, for use with most condenser microphones.
  • State-of-the-art Clocking Solutions
    OctoPre MkII's internal clock delivers a jitter performance of < 10 PPM. For external clocks, a BNC connector is provided and industry-standard JetPLL™ jitter elimination technology is employed.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
