The new ULTRAGAIN PRO-8 DIGITAL ADA8000 (USD 249.99 MSRP) is behringer's new 8-channel A/D and D/A converter with studio-grade IMP "Invisible" microphone preamplifiers for virtually any digital recording and mixing environment.
Combining the best of two worlds--analog circuits with sophisticated digital technology, the ADA8000 features 24-bit A/D and D/A converters for ultimate audio quality. The 19" rack-mount unit facilitates connection of analog audio signals directly to a multitrack recorder or similar equipment via the integrated ADAT interface, making it a useful add-on for Behringer's DANALOG DDX3216 digital mixing console.
At the heart of the ADA8000 is its preamp section with eight low-noise IMP "Invisible" Mic Preamps. Both 44.1 and 48kHz sample rate processing and extensive connections turn the ADA8000 into a flexible recording system control center for any studio: eight analog inputs and outputs plus an optical ADAT IN/OUT interface that can be routed to each of the line outputs guarantee professional flexibility. All mic/line inputs can be routed to the ADAT output.
Additionally, external sample rate synchronization is possible via wordclock or the ADAT input. Eight audio channels with combined XLR and 1/4" inputs are available at the front facilitating flexible configuration of recording sessions without having to rewire an existing setup. Balanced inputs and outputs guarantee low-noise signal management. The intensity of all input channels can be adjusted at the rack module, and can be muted or directly forwarded to an output. This allows the ADA8000 to be used as stand-alone preamplifier and audio mixer for a plethora of applications.
The unit will be available in the 3rd quarter 2003.
