“THESE ARE AMONGST MY GO-TO MIC PRES BECAUSE THEY’RE JUST SO CLEAN AND TRANSPARENT, THEY’RE JUST BEAUTIFUL PIECES OF KIT”
– CHARLIE ANDREW (ALT-J, MADNESS)
Get the best from your microphones
If you’re partial to the character of ribbon mics, then ASP880 is made for you. Variable impedance allows you to match the pre to your favourite ribbon mic. Retain the punch and frequency response the mic was born with. It also works on your other mics, just more subtly.
Variable High Pass Filter
Remove unwanted low frequencies
Get it right at the source and lose those unwanted low frequencies with a simple to use variable high-pass filter. Take control of low end rumble, reduce proximity effect and more by quickly sweeping anywhere between 25Hz and 250Hz. The result is a clean, ready to record signal.
Built To Last
Quality deserves protection
ASP880 has been designed to last, its all-metal construction and hand milled aluminium knobs will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road. All this in 1RU!
