2. Goodbye To Cable Spaghetti
500R8 seamlessly integrates 500 series into your studio simply using a laptop/PC and USB cable. D-subs, XLRs, TRS jacks cost money, take up space, and look unsightly. 500R8 exchanges all of that copper for a USB cable to create a completely integrated, streamlined, and customisable recording/mixing experience for the studio and on the road.
3. Upgrade Your Conversion
With converters and digital clocking built-in that exceeds the technical performance of the best audio interfaces on the market, 500R8 not only allows for you to design your own analogue front-end thanks to the 500 series format, but also ensures that the analogue signal is converted with the utmost detail and clarity with enough converter headroom to drive those modules properly!
4. Simplify Your Hybrid Studio Workflow
Remove the complexities of analogue I/O levels, re-patching, XLR/TRS adapters, and patch bays by moving towards a simpler, yet more advanced integration of 500 series and other analogue equipment. 500R8’s module source switches allow for Analogue XLR or USB sources to be routed through the 500 series modules at a flick of a switch. 500R8 is a completely optimised, plug-and-play, and fool proof way of using 500 series during recording and mixing.
5. More Of The Analogue Essentials
500R8 is not only a 500 series chassis and USB audio interface, it’s also your new Monitor Controller, Reference-Class Headphone Amplifier, and Analogue Summing Mixer in a completely integrated package. 500R8 replaces several elements of a studio in one, streamlined package with complete circuit optimisation from mic input to speaker output.
6. Complete 500 Series Studio For the Road
Packed into a robust 4u, 19” chassis, 500R8 is a roadworthy, all-in-one solution that allows you to take your complete 500 series studio on the road as the ultimate hybrid studio mobile rig. No 12u rack case, audio interface, and D-subs required - just bring 500R8, a laptop, and your ears.
