Legendary API Sound with Digital Convenience!There are some names in pro audio - like API - that just won't wash away. These guys were there at the beginning, cranking out some of the best boards the music world has ever seen, heard, and used. ESPECIALLY heard. But these days, hardly anyone goes 100% analog. And extra digital inputs are all too common on audio interfaces. So API thought "why not?" and went ahead and took their fantastic 312 microphone preamplifier design and packed two of them into a unit for a killer dual-channel mic pre combination. Then, they added awesome analog-to-digital conversion, so you've got first-class sound that's ALREADY DIGITAL so you can hook it right into your system via AES on XLR or S/PDIF.
Finally, a way to get two channels of to-die-for API sound - with a high-quality conversion system built-in, so all of that sweet signal stays intact! Of course, for the record, you still have standard analog outputs, so you can stay in the analog world if you've got an even better converter down the line that you want to use. How's that for convenient?
