ESI Audiotechnik U108 PRE USB audio interface
24-bit USB Audio Interface with 10 Microphone Preamps / 8 Outputs
U108 PRE is a special USB audio recording interface providing a solution for a very basic requirement: connecting a lot of professional microphones for simultaneous multichannel recording at one time.
U108 PRE provides a total of 10 high quality professional microphone preamps. Two XLR connectors are on the front panel, the others on the rear panel of the device. For all separate preamps, +48V phantom power can be enabled when needed and the input level can be adjusted separately for each channel. The input level is also displayed via LEDs on the front panel. Of course you can use all input channels simultaneously. In addition, there are two alternatively usable Hi-Z instrument inputs for electric guitars. For playback, 8 independent line outputs and a separate mix output (via the integrated monitor mixer) are provided.
U108 PRE provides drivers that work with very low latency - with support for WDM, ASIO 2.0 and CoreAudio, based on our EWDM- and DirectWIRE-Technology. That means that the unit can be used wih all common applications on both Mac and PC. With the bundled software you can start using it right away and simply start working out of the box.
