VARIABLE HIGH PASS FILTER
Quickly remove unwanted low frequencies
Get it right at the source and lose those unwanted low frequencies with a simple to use variable high-pass filter. Take control of low end rumble, reduce proximity effect and more by quickly sweeping anywhere between 25Hz and 250Hz. The result is a clean, ready to record signal.
Get the best from your microphones
If you’re partial to the character of ribbon mics, then ASP880 is made for you. Variable impedance allows you to match the pre to your favourite ribbon mic. Retain the punch and frequency response the mic was born with. It also works on your other mics, just more subtly.
PLUG AND PLAY
Plug in and be inspired.
As well as offering you 8 channels of Audient mic pre, ASP880 has two harmonically rich JFET D.I inputs. Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, you can plug your guitar, bass, keyboard or drum machine straight in and start recording instantly.
