"Amazing performance for drum tracking or any adat expansion needs!"

I had been using my old Mackie 1604VLZ Pro for nearly 2 decades, and it served me well, but after so long it began getting a little flaky in the preamps. I had been using the Mackie's direct outs to feed the 1/4" analog inputs on my Focusrite Scarlett 18i6, and after losing a few takes to crackles and pops I decided to invest in a new preamp. I was afraid of a mediocre improvement for the money, but I was so happy upon trying it out. I am hearing more detail from my mics than ever before! It's so clear, rock solid so far, and runs quite cool compared to my 2 channel tube pre. SO happy with the Scarlett Octopre!

"Better Get One While You Can-Too Good To Miss This Deal"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Look at this unit as a 19" rack sized 8 channel mixer: 8 analogs in+ 8 analog outs + the 8 ADAT/Optical outs. Simple perfection setting it up. Preamps were the pleasant surprise, but man gotta admit, a lotta good going one here at very fair price! 1st time tracking with a full drum kit, yep--we knew then that the onboard preamps are performing well above average. Stellar pre's., for reals. We use it a summing mixer,too. Take some advice if reading...get one while you can!

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I am happy to use the onboard OctoPre's.-They do the workhorse of the sessions(drums),and we can add ADAT IN to our our 18i8 and record extra tracks at pro specs! We needed the 2nd Gen to use with W 8.1 laptop mobile unit.
