The i88X is an mLAN-based Audio and MIDI interface which features two mic and six line inputs with 24-bit96kHz A/D converters. Built-in ADAT Light Pipe compatibility and SPDIF I/O allows for 18 simultaneous inputs and outputs. The i88X can be used as a stand-alone 18-channel computer I/O, or as an expansion device in an mLAN network with devices such as the 01X.
The first two input channels feature high performance head amplifiers with phantom power and insert points. These amps were designed by the same engineers who developed Yamaha’s acclaimed DM2000 and 02R96 digital mixing consoles, and are the result of years of research and input.
“When it comes to the signal chain, there is no more important component than your mic preamps,” states Mike Martin, marketing manager, Digital Musical Instruments. “The combination of mLAN compatibility and superb preamps will allow users to seamlessly expand their computer-based systems with a level of audio quality that has never been offered in this price range.”
