OUR PART # DIGIMAX-DP88
The latest innovation in the DigiMax-series line of preamp/converters, the DP88, offers controlled, analog preamps and unmatched digital conversion up to 96 kHz. Like its predecessors, the DigiMax DP88 provides the connectivity, flexibility, and sound quality to make it a great fit in any studio environment.
A smooth trip from analog to digital
The DigiMax DP88 is equipped with audiophile-grade, Burr-Brown processors that provide 118 dB of dynamic range and are backed by a clock with sub-50 picosecond jitter to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally.
XMAX preamps, now with remote control
The DigiMax DP88 includes eight digitally controlled, analog XMAXâ„˘ preamps, each providing high headroom, low noise, wide dynamic range, and extended frequency response. The resulting musicality and transparency make the design boast-worthy. Years ago, PreSonus patented digital control over analog circuits and created a separate digital volume-control circuit ahead of their 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 an excellent companion for any audio interface with ADAT I/O, it was made 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 XMAXâ„˘ analog preamps are fully remote-controllable from PreSonusâ€™ Studio OneÂ® 3 DAW and from PreSonus UC Surface control software, extending the Studio 192 analog inputs sonically and functionally.
Easy MIDI control
While PreSonus canâ€™t provide the same level of integration with every audio interface as 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. 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 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. This allows 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 interfaceâ€™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.
DigiMax DP88 is an ideal companion for any audio interface ADAT I/O, including:
