Unveiling the Focusrite ISA428 MkII

Packed with selectable input impedance, immediate instrument inputs, and an optional boost of eight channels of premium analog to digital conversion, this unit is meticulously crafted for the discerning audio professional, regardless of the recording medium chosen.

Elevating its prowess, the innovative variable impedance circuit gifts you the freedom to harmonize the preamp with any microphone. Or, tread the path of creativity, shaping the microphone’s sound with different impedance settings.

Frequency Response Like No Other
Focusrite preamps aren't just about clarity; they are about range. With an astoundingly broad frequency response, hovering near the 200 kHz mark at its zenith, it pledges an impeccable phase response across the entire human auditory spectrum. Moving the roll-off point well outside the bounds of human hearing, it offers a warmth and a sparkling, unrestricted range of high frequencies - reminiscent of the classic Focusrite designs of the mid-80s.

State-of-the-Art Analog Conversion
Take a leap into the future with the optional eight-channel analog converter. Nested within is the magic of Burr-Brown amplifiers coupled with the PCM4220 A-D converter chips, all cradled within Focusrite's bespoke analog circuitry. Flaunting a dynamic range of 122dB and ultra-low jitter performance, it effortlessly interfaces with digital workstations, courtesy of the 25-pin D-type connector.

Bonus for the Modern Producer
