Audient Console Mic Pres

The professional
sound you deserve

Tackle any project with the renowned Audient Console Mic Preamp, the same discrete circuit design found in our renowned recording console the ASP8024-HE. Designed to deliver ultra-low noise and low distortion with a touch of classic analogue warmth, ASP800’s eight Audient Console mic pre’s will give you the professional sound you deserve.

The Retro Channels

Add colour to your audio

Designed to emulate tones often associated with 1960’s tube designs and the coveted transformer zing of British audio in the 1970’s, HMX & IRON give you the option to add analogue tone to your recordings.

HMX

Harmonic saturator

By using discrete MOSFET technology HMX produces asymmetrical harmonic distortion, giving you the option to add richness and body to the pristine tone of the Audient mic preamp.

IRON

Transformer drive

Using a custom British transformer with a high voltage MOSFET drive network, IRON is designed to add saturation reminiscent of magnetic tape distortion and recreate that sparkly, “sounds like a record” signature of 1970’s recording.

How does it work?

One control simultaneously alters drive impedance, bass response, high frequency damping, phase shift, magnetic saturation and transient shaping, letting you instantly add character to your audio.
