Look no further for an ADAT expansion
So I debated for a very long time about which route to go to add 8 channels to my rig to pair with my Liquid Saffire 56. The Octopre and the dynamic version were on my watch list. After listening to tons of examples and doing my research I got this piece and I'm not looking back. Outside of the 2 liquid pres this sounds better then my Saffire 56. Knobs are kinda meh. But really who cares. The sound is the most important thing and this unit delivers. I love the midrange and the way it reacts to transients. Acoustic guitars, vocals, and drums are gonna sound great in this thing. Pretty much everything really. And clients love the word "tube". It adds a new air of legitimacy to my relatively small studio and the sounds I can get.
I will look to upgrade the tubes in the future but for now it's a solid preamp. Get one and you won't be sad.
