Big sound, small footprint.

The ASP4816-SE is an in-line, full analogue recording and mixing console providing everything you’d expect from a large format recording console but in a space-friendly footprint. Designed from the ground up by David Dearden and featuring his legendary analog circuitry, the ASP4816-SE is the perfect centrepiece for production studios.

Designed to deliver ultra-low noise and low distortion with a touch of classic analogue warmth, ASP4816-SE’s 16 discrete hybrid Class-A preamps are ready to handle any microphone, instrument or source you can throw at it.

With a flexible topology offering up to 60dB of gain and an incredibly wide bandwidth ensuring your transient detail is accurately preserved in stunning resolution, the Audient preamp gives you a versatile and flexible solution ready for any session.

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.

Bring it all together

Often likened to classic analogue boards from the 80s, the Audient mix bus compressor does far more than just control levels, it adds weight, depth and warmth to your mix as well as helping to glue your production together for a more polished result.

Featuring adjustable ratio and threshold controls, auto-release settings and a gain reduction meter, the Audient mix bus compressor is more than equipped for adding those final touches to any production.

Powerful, musical, splittable

The massively flexible Dearden designed EQ offers two fully parametric bands that span from 40Hz to 20kHz, are adjustable from -15db to + 15dB and offer an adjustable Q control. These are flanked by low and high shelving EQ bands with the ability to engage the ‘Air’ button for that often needed finishing sheen.

Splittable EQ

The EQ can also be split across both the short and long faders, meaning you can EQ both your mic inputs and DAW returns at the same time, making it incredibly easy to start building your mix from the moment you start recording.
