8 channel mic pre/line/instrument pre amp with ADAT output
Each of the Octane's eight channels features the preamp technology found in M-Audio's DMP3 mic preamp. Each channel features rear-panel connections for microphone input (balanced XLR), direct line input (balanced 1/4" TRS), and preamp output (balanced 1/4" TRS). The front panel also houses 1/4" TS instrument inputs for channels 1 and 2. Additional front panel controls for each of the eight preamp channels include input level knob, 20dB pad and 3-segment LED to aid in attaining the most favorable signal levels.
One of the most important features of the new Octane is the ADAT Lightpipe output, allowing seamless digital connectivity of all eight channels to multi-channel digital equipment such as ADATs and digital mixers. Two word clock connectors (BNC) provide synchronization with other digital devices, including multiple Octanes for as many high-end preamp channels as desired. Internal sync rates are selectable between 44.1kHz and 48kHz, and the unit slaves to external sync rates ranging from 33kHz to 59kHz. Of course, the individual preamp outs on each channel also allow connection to any type of analog mixer or recorder with 1/4" line inputs. The line inputs allow the Octane to serve as an 8-channel A/D converter, as well.
