No longer available at zZounds
1 rack space unit, peak-reading meter, two Super Channels feature DI, low cut filters on every channel
OctoPre LE, the "lite edition" of the company's established OctoPre, brings Focusrite pre-amplification and A/D-D/A conversion to a new level of affordability for DAW and digital console users. OctoPre LE provides eight channels of pristine Focusrite preamps, including two "Super Channels" that offer mic impedance matching and instrument DI inputs plus other features.

With the optional A/D-D/A board installed, OctoPre LE brings more to the DAW via ADAT lightpipe than ever before, allowing users to make the most of often neglected ADAT inputs and outputs for tracking and monitoring. In addition, the A/D-D/A option provides wordclock in and out as well as being the only converter in its class to feature 256x clock - a must-have for Pro Tools engineers.

Extremely easy to use, OctoPre LE helps to save session time and engineer heartache. Auto switching front and rear panel inputs and total control of the digital I/O from the front fascia allow the unit to remain racked and patched, with every I/O solution available at the flick of a switch. In typical Focusrite fashion, the OctoPre LE upholds professional standards throughout, boasting class-leading specifications.

Housed in a sturdy 1U chassis with the familiar Platinum fascia, OctoPre LE is the first of the Platinums to feature a 'porthole'-style peak-reading meter, similar to Focusrite's industry standard Red range of products. The meter can be switched to display the input level of any one of the eight channels. The two Super Channels feature DI for guitars or similar instruments, read more as well as a low impedance switch for making the most of ribbon mics and allowing deliberate mic mis-matching for enhanced creativity. Other features include phantom power, independent clip metering and low cut filters on every channel. read less
