Great Studio Sound and A/D Conversion in a Compact 2-channel Unit!The Audient Mico 2-channel microphone preamp packs major sound quality and great analog-to-digital converters into a very compact package that's perfect for desktops. Audent's renowned Class A design is used in the Mico, giving it great transparency. Channel 1 of this unit includes HMX harmonic sculpting technology from Audient's Black Pre, which gives you instant access to vintage vibe. Channel 2 features Variphase control. Switchable highpass filters, phase invert, a 10dB pad, front panel DI input, and more are also included on the versatile little Mico!
Audient Mico 2-channel Microphone Preamp at a Glance:
Vintage vibe on Channel 1, Variphphase on 2
Mico features one channel of the unique HMX harmonic sculpting technology from the
Audient Black Pre making the creation of vintage style character and complexity as simple as
turning one knob. For recording a single source with twin mics or mic+DI, the Variphase
control on Mico's second channel allows precise phase alignment (or creative mis-alignment)
of the two signal paths.
The heart of a console pre
The front-end design is Audient's renowned balanced discrete Class A design which is also used in the ASP008 and the ASP8024 mixing console, guaranteeing outstanding sonic transparency and detail. It's like having the heart of a big-studio console right there on your desktop!
High-quality A/D conversion
Audient went to great lengths to give Mico outstanding A/D conversion capability and options. You get an ultra-high performance 24 bit 44.1/48/96KHz low-jitter internal clock, AES/EBU, S/PDIF coaxial and TOSlink outputs, word clock input on BNC, and switchable word clock termination.

For about $100 more, with Mico you get TWO amazingly clean & transparent pre's, plus built-in AD 96Khz), Word Clock, and digital outputs. Plus a lot more high-pass filtering options than the m101.
For me, it was a no-brained which one to buy!! close [-]
There is no other box at this price point that gives you high-quality mic pres that you can dial in for phase coherency when using multiple mics on one source, and gives you quality A/D coverters to boot. A great way to add two more channels to any interface with a S/PDIF or AES input.
