The TubeFire 8 packs eight quality second-generation discrete Class-A vacuum tube microphone preamps in a single rack space unit with balanced I/O and FireWire connectivity. Ideal for any recording application, the TubeFire 8 adds eight incredibly warm tube driven mic or line inputs and eight balanced outputs to any FireWire equipped PC or Mac based direct-to-drive recording system.

ART’s mic preamps provide clean quiet gain while maintaining incredible transparency through the input stage. The eight balanced outputs of the TubeFire 8 can be driven from either the analog mic preamp inputs making the TubeFire 8 an in-line eight channel tube preamp, or from the internal high quality D/A converters making it a high quality multi-channel audio output for your PC.

Every input channel on the TubeFire 8 offers both XLR input and 1/4-inch TRS balanced input with 70dB of gain. All inputs have -10dB Pad, High Pass filter, Phase Invert clip indicators and a wide range LED meter to monitor the preamp levels. The eight balanced outputs can be summed to an integrated headphone output providing either a mono or stereo mix function for low latency input monitoring and for monitoring audio playback from the computer.

The TubeFire 8 ships with Cubase LE for Mac or PC.
