Out of this world

Emilio M. Rizzi, 25.01.2017
I am out-of-this-world happy. This is a beautiful unit, the brushed aluminum looks fantastic and the knobs feel solid. Connectors are extremely stable in their sockets and everything is generally fantastically built.

The sound is incredible. I'm in love with the AIR feature, it 'adds' incredibly pleasant upper mids and therefore increased clarity to the mic pre. Very flat-sounding pre-amp, and its paired beautifully with console emulation such as Slate digital virtual consoles. Incredibly low noise floor, I am extremely happy about this especially!!

Overall, I am incredibly happy I chose the 8preX over the 8pe. This is a stunning unit and I literally could not wish for a better product. Well done Focusrite, thank you Thomann!

Great interface

Erdna Eduan, 03.03.2018
Would have loved this to be Thunderbolt 3 based, but I guess that will follow in due course. In the meantime, I needed to get an Apple Thunderbolt - Thunderbolt 3 cable adapter.
