Behringer continue to release products at a rate of knots with 14 new items alone at this years MESSE. One that may be of particular interest was ULTRAGAIN PRO-8 DIGITAL ADA8000. Featuring 8 channels of IMP Mic preamps with gain control and 48v phantom power, Behringer say that this is the perfect match for their DDX3216 digital console. Adding this unit will give you a full 32 channels of Mic/Line inputs and Behringer are pushing this as an ideal solution for live work.
The ADA8000 is a state-of-the art 8-channel A/D and D/A converter with 8 built-in IMP microphone preamplifiers. This ultra-compact 19" unit gives you the opportunity to connect analog audio signals directly to a multitrack recorder or similar equipment via the integrated ADAT® interface—and needs only one rack space for this purpose! In return, you can even connect the digital signal of a multitracker via ADAT® to the eight analog line outputs of your ADA8000.
Of course, the ADA8000 is a perfect expansion of BEHRINGER’s digital mixing console DDX3216, and lets you turn your DDX3216 into a full-fledged 32-channel console. Signal conversion can be processed at 44.1 or 48 kHz with 24-bit resolution. The ADAT® inputs and outputs can be operated independently as long as there is an identical wordclock signal. The integrated A/D and D/A converters ensure optimal signal conversion without any distortion or signal deterioration.
