Heritage Audio Super 8 Eight-Channel ADAT Microphone Preamp

Add 8 channels of Neve-inspired preamps to your rack, and send them to your DAW via one ADAT cable! Built-in A/D conversion makes the Super 8 a superb value.

Heritage Audio meets the demands of many musicians, producers and engineers with the Super 8, an all-in-one preamp with eight high quality channels recorded into your DAW via ADAT. For the first time Heritage is introducing a package with 8 of their famous 73-style preamps in a single 2-rack space unit. This piece is stuffed with all the goodies you'd expect including exclusively designed Carnhill transformers on the Inputs and Outputs and Tantalum and Styroflex capacitors to make sure you get all the juice, vibe and feel from that golden era all while dishing out a very generous 80dB of gain.

Each channel of the Super 8 has a button to activate the 48v Phantom power, a LINE button to prepare the input for Line Level signals, a PHASE button to flip it 180, and a LoCut button to produce a -3db cut at 80Hz.

The first channels are also equipped with a LO Z button which will change the input impedance from 1200Ohm to 300Ohm, a PAD button to reduce the input -20db, Heritage's famous JFET D.I. as well as a fully sweepable LoCut filter -- everything you need in a preamp.

As if that's not enough, there is also an analog to digital converter included to send your signals on to your DAW as easily as possible. This high quality, premium ADC is 24-Bit and offers selectable internal sampling frequencies variable from 44.1k to 192k in addition to being externally syncable by WordClock. Three different digital outputs options are available; ADAT, SPDIF and AES/EBU, to make sure all of your read more needs are taken care of. One of the neatest features of the unit is the ability to individually, per channel, decide whether the signal converted and sent to the DAW comes directly from the corresponding input (preamp) or from an external source. What this allows you to do is send your preamped signal out to a processor and then return it to the unit so it can be converted digitally and sent along to your DAW.

This can really come in handy if you need a bit of EQ or compression for more control before the digital conversion. This actually means you have 2 selectable sources for each of the eight converters, a seemingly small detail that can really make a big difference when you re knee deep in the mix or session and don't have time to spare.

All the inputs and outputs are provided on gold plated XLRs with LINE inputs and outputs. Also provided are the format specific connectors for ADAT and BNC WordClock as well as a 9 PIN connector to access either the SPDIF or the AES/EBU conversion.
