Great for your home studio, allowing you to expand out from your DAW, the OctoPre MkII Dynamic is packed with features and high quality inputs and outputs for all your recording and playback needs.

Focusrite OctoPre MkII Dynamic Audio Interface Key Features:

  • Eight Award Winning Preamps
  • Eight "Single-Dial" Compressors
  • Compress Transparently or with Effect
  • Eight-Channel 24-Bit/96kHz Digital Inputs
  • Eight-Channel 24-Bit/96kHz Digital Outputs

Award Winning Focusrite Preamps

Making up the foundation of the Focusrite OctoPre MkII Dynamic are eight award-winning preamps.

Optimised to handle extreme sound levels, these Focusrite preamps are perfect for recording all kinds of sources including acoustic drums.

Single-Dial Compressors

New VCA-based, feed-forward compressors are onboard, modelled on the hugely popular Focusrite Red 3.

With a classic soft-knee design, you get incredibly transparent compression that maintains your natural sound.

Alternatively, you can utilise the unique "More" switch which doubles the ratio, giving you compression with effect.

Eight Channels In and Out

Providing you with all sorts of potential, the OctoPre Dynamic has eight 24-bit/96kHz digital inputs and outputs.

Allowing you to make use of ADAT I/O, you can easily expand the amount of mic pre inputs on your interface or even use it for analogue monitoring from a digital ADAT feed.

You'll also be able to make use of two high-quality instrument inputs.

With these two great DIs built into the Focusrite OctoPre, you can plug your guitars, bass or other instruments in with ease, without requiring an external Di which would add further costs.

Setting Recording Standards

Fantastic features, great quality audio and huge potential – all packed into a single 1U chassis, the Focusrite OctoPre sets a new standard for multi-channel recording expansions.
