With eight channels of Focusrite microphone preamplification, eight VCA-based Red 3-derived compressors and built-in 24-bit / 96kHz digital inputs and outputs, OctoPre MkII Dynamic is Focusrite's feature-rich expansion upgrade for any digital audio workstation. It's equally an ideal expansion for any analogue or digital console, or hard disk recorder.

Digital inputs and outputs let you make the most of often-neglected ADAT I/O; ideal for expanding the number of mic pre inputs on your interface or for providing analogue monitoring from any digital ADAT feed.

With this entire package fitting into a single 1U chassis complementing Focusrite's Saffire PRO range, and all controls adjustable from the front fascia, OctoPre MkII Dynamic sets the standard for modern, compact, multi-channel recording expansions.

 

Eight award-winning Focusrite preamps

Focusrite's unparalleled preamp legacy forms the foundation of this new device, with preamps optimised to handle extreme levels from sound sources like acoustic drums.

Eight ‘single-dial' Focusrite compressors

A single dial gets you to the right amount of compression, fast. These new VCA-based, feed-forward compressors model the character of the celebrated Focusrite Red 3.

Compress transparently or with effect

The classic soft-knee design achieves beautifully transparent compression that caresses your sound. Focusrite's unique "More" switch doubles the ratio to deliver ‘compression with effect'.

Built-in eight-channel 24-bit / 96kHz digital outputs

Make the most of your interface's ADAT input for tracking, with eight channels of analogue to digital conversion via ADAT, boasting a ‘real world' dynamic range performance of 110dB.

Built-in eight channel 24-bit / 96 kHz digital inputs

Switchable from the front panel, digital to analogue conversion via ADAT provides analogue monitoring of any digital ADAT feed, as well as the ability to clock from any ADAT device.

State-of-the-art clocking solutions

OctoPre MkII Dynamic's internal clock delivers a jitter performance of +/- 20 PPM. For external clocks, industry-standard JetPLLTM jitter elimination technology is employed

Two high-quality instrument inputs

OctoPre MkII Dynamic's first two channels feature DI's, ready for you to plug in your guitars and bass. No expensive external DI required.

Input clip and Compression active LEDs on every channel
5 LED input metering on every channel
Phantom power available on every channel (switched in two groups: 1-4 and 5-8)
24-bit resolution, 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz sampling rates
