Digital I/O for the Audient ASP008 8-channel preamp
The Audient ASP-8AES 48/96kHz AES/EBU and ADAT digital output option card adds functionality to the Audient ASP008 8 Channel mic preamp. The ASP-8AES digital card gives ASP008 the ability to interface with both digital recorders with AES/EBU connecters and also ADAT Digital Recorders making it an ideal "front-end" for any DAW system.
Uses a 9-Pin female D-sub type connector to provide the required 8 digital outputs (in 4 pairs - pair 1 carries channels 1/2 etc) at 44.1/48/88.2/96kHz sample rates (selectable on the front panel). Separate fan-out cables are available with XLR terminations for AES and RCA-phono connections for SPDIF.
AES format is selected when the associated switch is in its normal (released) state. Depressing this switch will set the outputs to SPDIF format. The outputs can be set to 16/20 or 24 bit depth using the front panel controls of the Audient ASP008 8 Channel mic preamp
This card provides ADAT digital outputs at either 44.1 or 48kHz sample rates (selectable on the front panel) for all 8 channels on a single 'light pipe ' output connector. The outputs can be set to 16/ 20 or 24 bit depth using the front panel controls.
Who is Audient and what makes them so cool
While British-based Audient is fairly new on the scene (1998), the company's founders have quite a long and respectable pedigree. Co-founder David Dearden has worked with David Manley (original owner of Manley Laboratories), Eddie Offord (Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Yes), and was involved in building a custom console and private studio for John Lennon for his Imagine sessions, followed by studios for George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Gus Dudgeon (producer, Elton John, David Bowie), and Chris Squire of Yes. After three years with MCI and two years with Soundcraft, David Dearden and Gareth Davies (also from Soundcraft) formed DDA (Dearden Davies Associates), a maker of high-quality analog consoles. When DDA became part of the Klark Teknik Group, he also designed the Midas XL200 live sound console and did the initial concept and design of the Midas H1000 console. Midas consoles are generally acknowledged by FOH professions to be one of the, if not the best live sound consoles in existence. In 1997 Dearden rejoined with Gareth Davies to form Audient, whose products are typified by high performance, intelligent ergonomics, and transparent sound quality. Notable users of Audient gear include Abbey Road Studios, Pete Townshend's Eel Pie Recording, and England's Royal Academy of Music.
