            Comments about Focusrite OctoPre MkII 8-Channel Mic Preamp:

            I purchased this to add more inputs to my UAD Apollo. Works PERFECTLY! This will allow you to use the Apollo's effects on the console, the advantage being able to use the UAD effects on all the extra inputs in real time! This is my first "ADAT" experience - I've never connected devices via lightpipe before until now. It was easy - I highly recommend this for the Apollo Twin users out there.

              Comments about Focusrite OctoPre MkII 8-Channel Mic Preamp:

              I picked this up to add 8 additional preamps to my Saffire Pro 40. One cable and some software clicks later.. I have 16 very clean and full of life recording channels. Skip the dynamic version and get this. Compress and EQ in the box. Focusrite is Pro throughout, so you will be very happy with this Octopre MkII.

              Comments about Focusrite OctoPre MkII 8-Channel Mic Preamp:

              I originally bought the Focusrite Liquid 56 and had linked it up to a Digimax D8, which worked...sometimes...with Pro Tools 10 on my Mac. Unfortunately I seemed to keep struggling with the two interfaces syncing properly and me having a hassle free recording session. I made the decision to match the two brands in hopes that I could just start up Pro Tools and go without fiddling with settings every time so I bought the Octo Pre. Took me less than an hour to get everything locked up, Pro Tools up and running and sounds going through both interfaces. Not to mention I now have pads and 48v for more channels. Very excited about this setup and here we are over a week later and still just starting up Pro Tools and going to town!!!
