PreSonus Digimax DP88 Microphone Preamp

The DigiMax DP88 expands the analog connections of any audio interface with ADAT I/O, delivering pristine audio quality up to 96 kHz. Eight digitally controlled, analog XMAX preamps can be controlled from the front panel and remotely via MIDI. When connected to a PreSonus Studio 192 interface, the preamps can also be controlled from Studio One 3 or UC Surface software. Direct A/D inputs let you connect external devices directly to the converter. Use DAC outputs for monitor mixes and more.

Learn more about the Digimax DP88 in this video overview by PreSonus:


See how Roland Guerin uses the DP88 and Studio 192 in his recording process:


The DigiMax DP88 is equipped with audiophile-grade, Burr-Brown processors to deliver top-quality digital conversion up to 96 kHz. These converters provide 118 dB of dynamic range and are backed by a boast-worthy clock with sub-50 picosecond jitter to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally. You'll hear every breath, transient, and detail of a performance in your recordings.

Flexible rear-panel I/O makes it easy to incorporate the DigiMax DP88 into any studio environment. Access the preamps using XLR or DB25 connections. Eight direct, analog-to-digital, line-level inputs are available on DB25 and can be accessed per channel with a front-panel button, allowing you to keep all of your gear connected at the same time. Eight balanced DAC outputs are provided via DB25 so you can expand your interface's outputs for monitor mixes or speaker switching. You also get eight balanced direct outputs on DB25 and eight channels of ADAT/dual SMUX optical I/O up to 96 kHz.

Although the DigiMax DP88 is the perfect companion for any audio interface with ADAT I/O, it was designed to seamlessly extend the analog I/O on the PreSonus Studio 192 studio command center. When the DP88 is connected to a Studio 192 via ADAT, its eight XMAX analog preamps are fully remote-controllable from PreSonus' Studio One(R) 3 DAW and from PreSonus UC Surface control software, extending the Studio 192 analog inputs sonically and functionally.

Features:

- Flawless analog signal path with top-quality 118 dB digital conversion
- 8 digitally controlled XMAX mic preamps with individual phantom power controlled from front panel and remotely via MIDI or controlled from UC Surface and Studio One 3 when connected to a PreSonus Studio 192
- 8 balanced, direct A/D line-level inputs (DB25)
- 8 balanced DAC outputs (DB25) to expand your interface outputs

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.
