OctoPre LE

Articles

The phantom power on the Octopre LE is globally switched in and out so if you are recording with condenser mics that require phantom power, any dynamic mics (that do not require phantom) that you are...
The level you set the mic pres to is dependent on the input signal level and the maximum input level of the next part of the signal chain. If you are recording with a mic that has a low output level...
As well as showing when a channel is clipping, the Overload LED performs a second function. When the LED is lit continuously, it means that this channel's level is being displayed on the front panel...
Most notable is the pre-amp designs. They are similar in performance but not identical. The original OctoPre is a typical Class A Platinum design, (based around a 737 Rhom transistor) the LE is an op...
Do not worry - this is normal behaviour. Note that for mic inputs the input gain range is +13 to +60 dB. This means that when the knob is fully left the signal still has 13dB of gain applied to it...
