The OctaMic II from RME is an 8 channel microphone/line preamplifier that also provides pristine analog-to-digital conversion of all channels. Low distortion, excellent signal-to-noise ration and highly linear frequency response all contribute to the ability of the unit to transmit and amplify an accurate representation of the source.

The analog-to-digital converter delivers 8 channels of pristine digital output, available as double ADAT output (S/MUX up to 96kHz) and simultaneously as 4 AES outputs (up to 192kHz) via a DB-25 connector. The converter can be clocked internally as a master, or externally via word clock and AES sync, while SteadyClock technology ensures the very best sound quality even with a jittery external clock.

Per channel LEDs indicate phantom power status, signal presence and a clip indicator. When activated, a "Clip Hold" button prompts any corresponding clip LED to flash once a second when an overload is detected on that particular channel
-8, short-circuit protected, low-impedance and servo-balanced line outputs can have their reference level changed simultaneously, via a front panel switch, to aid in maintaining optimum output levels.


The 8-channel analog-to-digital conversion operates at up to 192kHz. Digital output is available simultaneously at the two ADAT outputs, allowing for S/MUX operation up to 96kHz, and at a DB-25 connector delivering 4 AES/EBU outputs, up to 192kHz. Analog outputs and both digital outputs operate simultaneously. SteadyClock ensures near perfect conversion by almost completely removing jitter on any external sync source.
