An 003 with eight built-in mic pres!

With the Digidesign 003 Rack+, the latest generation of Pro Tools LE interfaces has arrived! Building on the success of the hugely successful 002 and 003, the 003 Rack+ takes all the built-in functionality of its predecessor and ups the ante with eight preamps and superior A/D conversion. The 003 Rack+ preamps are the latest generation mic pre for Pro Tools LE interfaces, and use discrete, bi-polar, low-noise transistors coupled with a cleaner signal flow and improved pots. The 003 Rack+ is also equipped with word clock I/O making it super-easy to sync Pro Tools LE with external digital devices. The 003 revolutionized the home studio, and the 003 Rack+ continues that with additional "wow"-factor features.

Digidesign 003 Rack+ Factory at a Glance:
  • 003 Rack+ hardware features eight mic pres and a TON of I/O
  • Exclusive 24/7 Sweetwater Support
  • Industry standard Pro Tools software included
  • FREE Bomb Factory plug-ins plus other Digidesign software included!

003 Rack+- Racked Up Success!
Complementing the intuitive, comprehensive software components of the 003 Rack+ is a unique and innovative hardware configuration that provides convenient access to a ton of inputs and outputs! In fact, the 003 Rack+ delivers four more mic pres than its cousin, the 003 Rack! This 2U rack mount marvel features eight microphone preamps (with front panel gain control), eight line/DI inputs, Word Clock, MIDI I/O and digital I/O via S/PDIF and ADAT light pipe connection! Again, the 003 Rack+ connects to your laptop or desktop computer via plug-and-play FireWire!
