Audient ASP880 Microphone Preamplifier

The Audient ASP880 is an 8-channel microphone preamplifier & ADC that will transform your sessions into world class recordings, the perfect addition to your set-up. ASP880 provides eight of Audient's renowned console mic pres, pristine converter technology and a versatile feature set that includes Variable Impedance and Variable High Pass Filters. All in a 1RU rack!

Upgrade Your Sound. The first step to audio excellence.

Transform your sessions into world class recordings with ASP880, the perfect addition to your set-up. Bypass the mic pres and converters in your current interface and achieve the same audio excellence as the top studios.

World Class Mic Pres. The professional sound you deserve.

Audient's renowned Class-A, console mic pre outshines the competition and gives you the same sonic quality of products costing three or four times the price. Capture the detail and excitement of your audio sources, all with a hint of analogue coloration that will sound stunning on any project!

Developed by design legend David Dearden, our mic pre is used by thousands of professional studios around the world. With its versatile nature and accurate translation, the ASP880 will quickly become your 'go to' mic pre.

Pristine Converter Technology. Brilliance on the inside enables brilliance on the outside.

ASP880 provides you with the highest grade converters from Burr Brown, the leaders in converter technology. The integral ADC guarantees you will have the best conversion possible. This isn't just the best converter in a mic pre either, it stands up against dedicated converters too. You can focus on the music and let ASP880 take care of the rest.

Plug and Play. Plug straight in and be inspired.

As well as offering you 8 channels of mic pre and line inputs, ASP880 has two sonically accurate discrete JFET DI inputs, so you can plug your guitar or bass straight in.

Take Control. Enhance your audio with ASP880's versatile feature set.

Bring your outboard in from the cold

Ever wanted to add compression or EQ to your signal before going to the computer? Well with ASP880 you can. Simply insert any analogue processor before the converters - it's as easy as that!

The A-D button allows ASP880 to function as an 8 channel mic pre while you use the converters separately in stand-alone mode.

Say Goodbye to Pesky Low frequencies

Lose those unwanted low frequencies with a simple to use variable high-pass filter. The result is a clean, ready to record signal.

Wrap it up with a ribbon

If you're partial to the character of ribbon mics, then ASP880 is made for you. Variable impedance allows you to match the pre to your favorite ribbon mic. Retain the punch and frequency response the mic was born with. It also works on your other mics, just more subtly.

Built to Last. Quality deserves protection.

ASP880 has been designed to last, its all-metal construction and hand milled aluminum knobs will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.
All this in 1RU!

- 8 Audient Console Mic Pres

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "Thanks to zZounds, this was the only way I could afford a bass like the one I just got. The process was so easy and my bass arrived so fast I was in shock for a month. I kept waking up to make sure it was still on its stand and I wasn't dreaming." - Customer on November 6, 2017

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.
