Baton Rouge, Louisiana, January 17, 2008 – PreSonus is pleased to announce the DigiMAX D8 eight-channel preamplifier with 24-bit ADAT digital output. The DigiMax D8 is the fourth product in the award-winning line of DigiMax eight-channel preamplifiers with digital output.

The DigiMax D8 is loaded with 8 award-winning ultra-quiet, high headroom, class A XMAX microphone preamplifiers great for drums, keyboards, instruments and vocals. All eight preamps include variable trim control, 48V phantom power, ultra-fast acting LED metering and 20 dB pad. In addition, 2 instrument inputs are located on the front panel for direct Hi-Z instrument input and 8 direct analog outputs are located on the rear panel for routing and flexibility. The DigiMax D8 also includes word clock sync input for ultra low jitter and robust synchronization.

The DigiMax D8 is the perfect solution to add eight professional microphone preamplifiers to any digital recording system with ADAT optical lightpipe expansion capability including Digidesign’s HD and 003 systems, RME, YAMAHA, Alesis, Mackie, and many others.

“PreSonus was the first to deliver an eight-channel preamp with ADAT lightpipe output with the original DigiMax eight years ago. It has become an industry standard for recording drums,” says Director of Marketing Brad Zell. “The DigiMax D8 is designed with affordability in mind delivering only the necessary features and keeping the power and sonic performance, so that it can still be called a DigiMax.”
