Antelope Audio MP8D Microphone Preamp

MP8d is an eight-channel class-A microphone preamplifier, which boasts Antelope Audio's integrated world-class A/D conversion. Antelope's converters are widely regarded for their naturally warm, yet sonically accurate sound signature.

This classically rich, yet modernly precise sound is accomplished thanks to Antelope's Acoustically Focused Clocking jitter management algorithm and Oven-Controlled crystal oscillator, along with advanced analog and digital circuit board design, powered by a proprietary power supply.

The MP8d mic pres are combo XLR/TRS connectors, which accept both mic and line level signals. Hi-Z inputs are associated with channels 1 and 2, and are accessible via dedicated TRS connectors on the front panel. Inserts for connecting your favorite effects outboard gear are available on the rear panel.

A high-end headphone amp is accessible from the front panel to provide the convenience of integrated monitoring. The analog connectivity is accomplished with a D-Sub 25 connector directly outputting the mic signals at line level, making MP8d a perfect companion device for Antelope's Orion32 and Zen Studio audio interfaces.

A plethora of digital connectors offer a wide variety of options, providing extreme flexibility and enhanced productivity. MP8d provides S/PDIF, AES/EBU, TOSLINK, ADAT and MADI connections expand the product compatibility and allow for both easy connection to other outboard gear or DAW, as well as cascading two or more MP8d units, expanding the channel count.

Features:

- 8 CLASS-A MIC PRES: 8 Hi-Z, Line and Mic compatible preamps with individual phantom power
- 64-BIT ACOUSTICALLY FOCUSED CLOCKING: A/D enhanced by Antelope's world-renowned jitter management algorithm
- DIGITAL CONNECTIVITY: MP8d features all digital I/O you need - MADI, ADAT, AES/EBU, S/PDIF, TOSLINK
- POWERFUL DSP: Massive parallel DSP for fast routing, low-latency mixing and real-time FX

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
