PreSonus DigiMax DP88 Preamp/Converter Expansion

PreSonus DigiMax DP88 Preamp/Converter Expansion

PreSonus DigiMax DP88 Preamp/Converter Expansion Details

The Presonus DigiMax DP88 A/D/D/A converter is the perfect companion to expand the new PreSonusStudio 192 Studio Command Center or any professional audio interface with ADAT I/O.

Building on the DigiMax legacy, PreSonus has innovated on the eight-channel A/D converter again by adding eight fully recallable, digitally controlled, analog XMAX preamps with pristine audio quality up to 96 kHz. Like its predecessors, the DigiMax DP88 provides the connectivity and flexibility to make it a perfect fit in any professional or home studio environment

A legend remade

For more than a decade, DigiMax-series preamp/converters have been relied on in countless recording studios worldwide. The DigiMax DP88 is the latest innovation in the DigiMax line, offering digitally controlled, analog preamps and unmatched digital conversion up to 96 kHz. Like its predecessors, the DigiMax DP88 provides the connectivity, flexibility, and professional sound quality to make it a perfect fit in any studio environment.

A smooth trip from analog to digital

The DigiMax DP88 is equipped with audiophile-grade, Burr-Brown processors to deliver top-quality digital conversion up to 96 kHz. These converters provide 118 dB of dynamic range and are backed by a boast-worthy clock with sub-50 picosecond jitter to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally. You??ll hear every breath, transient, and detail of a performance in your recordings.

XMAX preamps, now with remote control

The DigiMax DP88 includes eight digitally controlled, analog XMAX" preamps, each providing high headroom, low noise, wide dynamic range, and extended frequency response. The resulting musicality and transparency made this design an industry favorite. In 1995, PreSonus patented digital control over analog circuits for our first product. Building on this legacy, we created a separate digital volume-control circuit ahead of our award-winning analog XMAX preamp design, providing the convenience of digital recall without sacrificing fidelity.

A natural extension for the Studio 192 Studio Command Center

Although the DigiMax DP88 is the perfect companion for any audio interface with ADAT I/O, it was designed to seamlessly extend the analog I/O on the PreSonus Studio 192 studio command center. When the DP88 is connected to a Studio 192 via ADAT, its eight XMAX" analog preamps are fully remote-controllable from PreSonus?? Studio One® 3 DAW and from PreSonus UC Surface control software, extending the Studio 192 analog inputs sonically and functionally.

Easy MIDI control

While we can??t provide the same level of integration with every audio interface as we can with the Studio 192, the DigiMax DP88 is equipped with MIDI I/O for easy remote control from anywhere. By using simple MIDI CC messages to control level, phantom power, and direct ADC input, the DigiMax DP88 fits into any DAW environment. Simply connect it to your MIDI interface, enable it as a MIDI device in your DAW, and start remote controlling your preamps and recalling preamp settings with your audio sessions.

Flexible I/O makes setup a snap

Flexible rear-panel I/O makes it easy to incorporate the DigiMax DP88 into any studio environment. Access the preamps using XLR or DB25 connections. Eight direct, analog-to-digital, line-level inputs are available on DB25 and can be accessed per channel with a front-panel button, allowing you to keep all of your gear connected at the same time. Eight balanced DAC outputs are provided via DB25 so you can expand your interface??s outputs for monitor mixes or speaker switching. You also get eight balanced direct outputs on DB25 and eight channels of ADAT/dual SMUX optical I/O up to 96 kHz.

The new legend

The DigiMax DP88 provides professional sound quality and features previously unavailable in its class: Eight digitally-controlled, Class A microphone preamps; top-quality Burr-Brown converters with 118 dB of dynamic range; a boast-worthy digital clock with sub-50 picosecond jitter; and flexible connection options. Like the original DigiMax and its predecessors, the DigiMax DP88 is sure to be the new standard for eight-channel converters.
