The OctoPre MkII from Focusrite is an 8-channel microphone/line/instrument preamplifier with built-in 24-bit/96 kHz ADAT output. The unit is a powerful input upgrade for a Pro Tools LE or M-Powered system, any other digital audio workstation, an analog or digital console, or a stand-alone hard disk recorder.
The first 2 of the front panel inputs feature XLR combi connectors that accept microphone, line and Hi-Z inputs, the latter suitable for recording guitar or bass. Phantom power is available in groups of 4 inputs, while each channel features a direct analog out and a 10dB pad to increase the preamp's headroom. Five LED input metering is available per channel.
At the heart of the Rode NT2-A is the Australian designed and manufactured HF1 dual diaphragm capsule. The frequency and transient response of this transducer has been voiced to complement today's modern recording techniques, and yet still evoke the silky smooth character of the legendary microphones of the 50's and 60's. These features provide the flexibility and superlative audio characteristics that make the NT2-A one of the most versatile condenser mics available.
