The professional sound
Tackle any project with the renowned Audient Console Mic Preamp, the same discrete circuit design found in our renowned recording console the ASP8024-HE. Designed to deliver ultra-low noise and low distortion with a touch of classic analogue warmth, ASP4816’s sixteen Audient Console mic pre’s will give you the professional sound you deserve.
How does it sound?
The Audient mic pre is a high-grade hybrid discrete and op-amp design that delivers a clean, accurate and detailed translation of your source.
Now that’s quiet
With a noise floor 30,000 times quieter than the signal level your recordings will be captured with stunning clarity.
Four band EQ - Flexible, powerful, musical
The incredibly flexible, Dearden designed EQ offers two fully parametric bands that span from 40Hz to 20kHz, offering a powerful and punchy sound. These are flanked by low and high shelving EQ bands that are perfect for adding weight and air to your source and when combined with the parametric EQ, make for the ultimate sculpting tool.
Don’t forget, you can really take advantage of the EQ as it can be split across both the short and long faders, meaning you can EQ both your mic inputs and DAW returns at the same time.
Mix Bus Compressor - The glue your mixes need
Based on technology from the 80s and 90s the ASP4816’s mix bus compressor is known for adding a rock and roll dynamic to your mix. Often likened to classic analogue boards, the ASP4816’s mix bus compressor provides that classic VCA ‘glue’ that will give your mix that ‘sounds like a record’ feeling.

Solo in Front - Speed up your workflow
Solo in Front lets you solo a channel whilst still hearing the rest of your main mix at a much lower volume, allowing you to EQ with more accuracy and make better mix decisions.
Make all the connections
With an impressive array of connectivity options, the ASP4816 offers the versatility of a large-format console in a smaller footprint. Whether you’re bringing in your D/A outputs, effects returns and other line sources, or using the buses to record 16 channels of audio straight into your DAW via your converters or as 16 additional FX sends or parallel feeds, the ASP4816 provides ultimate flexibility for the modern studio.
Inline Architecture - A smarter way of working
The console inline architecture allows you to start building your mix as you’re tracking. By using the long and short faders you can create separate records and monitor balances on one channel strip, all while being able to access the console splittable EQ and aux sends, perfect for getting it right from the start. Experience the classic large format console workflow in a smaller footprint and take your mixes to the next level.
