Baton Rouge, Louisiana, July 2015

The PreSonus® DigiMax™ DP88 8-channel microphone preamplifier and A/D/A converter combines eight remote-controllable, high-headroom mic preamps with advanced remote control features, superior connectivity, and unprecedented integration with the new Studio 192 audio interface. The newest member of the company’s ever-popular DigiMax series, the 24-bit, 96 kHz DigiMax DP88 delivers exceptional audio quality thanks to its clean audio path provided by Burr-Brown A/D/A converters with 118 dB of dynamic range.

Eight digitally controlled XMAX™ Class A preamps employ true analog circuitry, with a separate digital volume control circuit. Phantom power is individually switchable for each preamp. Each channel is equipped with an eight-segment LED input meter and a phantom power indicator.
In addition to offering front-panel control, the DP88’s preamps use simple MIDI CC messages to control level, phantom power, and direct ADC input, making MIDI management from any DAW easy and intuitive.

When connected via ADAT Optical to a PreSonus Studio 192 audio interface, the DigiMax DP88’s preamp controls also are accessible from PreSonus’ Studio One® DAW and UC Surface control software for Mac® OS X and Windows®. No additional setup is required; the DigiMax DP88 becomes a natural extension of the Studio 192 inputs and outputs.

All inputs and outputs are on the rear panel, making it easy to incorporate the unit into any studio. The DP88 provides eight channels of ADAT Optical I/O at up to 96 kHz (using dual SMUX). Mic inputs are on XLR and DB25 connectors. Eight direct, analog-to-digital, line-level inputs are available on DB25 and can be accessed per channel with a front-panel button, allowing you to keep all of your gear connected at the same time.

Eight balanced direct outputs are provided on a DB25 connector, as are eight balanced DAC outputs that expand your interface outputs for monitor mixes or speaker switching. You get MIDI I/O on a multi-pin connector and breakout cable and word clock I/O on BNC connectors. Use the DP88 as the master clock, or sync it externally via ADAT or word clock.

The DigiMax DP88 is expected to be available in the third quarter of 2015 with an expected street price of $699.

Is there a limit on how many can be chained together?

Anybody know how many can be chained together? I am thinking 4 units/32 channels over Fire wire 800 but just a guess

Any techs want to throw in?

The limit is going to come from what you are chaining them to, not from the preamp itself. For ex: chaining them to the Studio 192, you can add 2 for 16 additional inputs via adat.

I just ordered mine! I want to add it to my Studio 192 for the 8 extra inputs. Can you tell a novice what connecting cables Ill need and how to configure so they play well together. I mean I can read a manual but I dont think it comes with all I need in the box and Im wanting to know if you have any insights about set up, pitfalls I should be aware of etc. Thanks a lot. I'll work on my signature soon! I am running a high falootin MacBook Pro with lots of resources, Studio one 3 , Capture and the Studios 192

You need adat cables to connect. I don't think they come with the unit. Pretty much plug and play, no drivers needed.
