Designed to provide 8 channels of the detailed, sonically transparent preamplification necessary for the highest quality tracking and live sound applications in a single rack space. The ultimate complement to state-of-the-art digital, recording and live sound applications, sought after by many professional musicians, engineers and producers. Precision 8i variant includes a rugged external power supply for international requirements.
The Precision 8 is designed to provide the detailed, transparent sonic performance necessary for the highest quality direct tracking and live sound applications. It includes a unique combination of features which make it useful as a complete input system for MDM’s, HDR’s, and DAW’s. Two sonically accurate discrete FET instrument inputs (DI’s) are available for recording or live sound applications in which realistic, unaffected sound quality is desired. The 5-segment peak-hold level metering with selectable peak reference allows rapid optimization of program levels between the PRECISION 8 and devices to which it is interfaced. PRECISION 8 is ideal for location recording due to its 8-channel single rack unit format, smooth continuous gain controls, useful level metering, and easy interconnect. The integral MS decoder provides creative spatial image control that is particularly useful in attaining an exciting stereo image with minimum effort and microphone repositioning.
