The Audient ASP800 is an audio powerhouse designed to transform your sessions into world class recordings, making it the perfect addition to your audio interface. Audient's ASP800 provides 8 channels of renowned console mic preamps, class-leading Burr-Brown converter technology, two JFET DIs and two Retro channels with revolutionary tone control.

Whether you’re recording drums or simply need more channels, the Audient ASP800 is the perfect tool for expanding your existing interface via ADAT. Its flexible and intuitive feature set will transform your current setup into the complete recording rig, perfectly at home recording both acoustic and electronic instruments.

We are the only company that uses the same Class-A mic pre design throughout our entire product range. Whether you’re in the studio with an Audient ASP8024 console or on the road with Audient's ASP800, you’re always guaranteed the same world-class sound. Developed by design legend David Dearden and optimized over 18 years, our mic pre is used by thousands of professional studios around the world. With its versatile nature and smooth tone, Audient's ASP800 will quickly become your ‘go to’ mic pre.

We’re known for our super clean mic pres but that doesn’t mean we don’t understand the importance of adding color. Whether you need to add growl to a bass guitar or make those vocals sparkle, ASP800’s revolutionary harmonic generation circuitry has got you covered.
Retro Channels 1 & 2 feature two unique variable harmonic COLOUR controls per channel - HMX & IRON. Designed to emulate tones often associated with 1960’s tube designs and the coveted transformer zing of British audio in the 1970s, HMX & Iron will add new dimension to your audio by providing warm, sparkly tones. You can also combine them to get anywhere in between.

We know that plenty of engineers love the sound of tubes/valves and if you’re one of them, then you’re going to love HMX. Travel back in time with the Audient ASP800’s very own custom harmonic distortion control. Similar to vintage valve preamplifier designs of the 1960s, HMX provides a sweet, thick tone that will sound great on anything from drums to electric guitars.

By using discrete MOSFET technology, HMX produces asymmetrical harmonic distortion giving you the option to add richness and body to the pristine tone of the Audient mic preamp, DI or line input. Take control of your sound and bring your audio to life, 1960’s style. Audient’s British transformer saturator, IRON, is a testament to innovation. IRON uses a custom British transformer with a high voltage MOSFET drive network designed to recreate that sparkly, “sounds like a record” signature of 1970s recordings.

With one control that simultaneously alters drive impedance, bass response, high frequency damping, phase shift, magnetic saturation and transient shaping - IRON can instantly add sparkle, growl and more with one twist of a knob. It sounds killer on snare, bass, acoustic guitar or anything that needs some extra bite.

The Audient ASP800 provides you with high performance 118-dB AD converters from Burr Brown, the leaders in converter technology. Quality in the analog stages of our design comes from years of experience as analog console designers, and when coupled with outstanding converter technology it enables you to hear audio as it’s supposed to sound. The importance of converters should never be underestimated.

Along with offering you 8 channels of mic pre, the Audient ASP800 has two harmonically rich JFET DI inputs. Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, you can plug your guitar, bass, keyboard or drum machine and start recording instantly. The result of years of experience in analog design combined with a focus on precision and detail, Audient's ASP800 packs a powerful feature set in a ergonomic 1RU rack mount. From the hand milled aluminium knobs to its all-metal construction, the Audient ASP800 will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.
