Capture high-quality sound with 8 mic preamps and DI for Pro Tools | HD family systems.
PRE is a high-performance, remote-controllable microphone preamp, enabling you to record performances in pristine-quality sound from anywhere in your studio. The 8-channel interface features eight matched-transistor mic preamp circuits, provides a transparent signal path, and easily accommodates your mic, line, and direct instrument (DI) level inputs. Pair it with a Pro Tools | HD family system to achieve the highest sound quality or standalone.
8 high-performance, matched-transistor, hybrid microphone pre-amplification circuitsSupport for mic (XLR), direct instrument (DI), and line level inputs (1/4")Each channel includes a high pass filter, phase reverse, 48V (phantom power), and -18 dB padFully remote-controllable using Pro Tools | HD Software or an Avid control surface; allows for the highest fidelity by keeping low-level signals close to the sourceSelectable impedance matching for mic, line, or instrument inputsMIDI IN/OUT/THRU ports for remote operationAll features supported in standalone mode, making PRE an ideal analog front end for any recording system
