I upgraded to an Allan & Heath ZED R16, so I don't need this unit any more.
RME OctaMic D is a high quality unit combining 8 superb mic preamps and A/D Conversion in one! Thanks to sophisticated discrete Class-A technology, RME OctaMic D offers you a pristine sound. Lowest distortion, excellent signal to noise ratio and perfectly linear frequency response transmit and amplify the microphone signals truly unchanged. Additionally, detachable rack mount holders and full battery compatibility make the OctaMic the perfect addition to your studio!

RME OctaMic D offers 8 balanced XLR mic / line inputs. Each channel contains switches for 48V phantom power, a low cut filter and phase reversal. Amplification can be set between 10 and 60 dB. LEDs for signal, clip, and activated phantom power give a complete overview on the unit's status. When the special Clip Hold mode is activated, any detected clip-state will cause the corresponding LED to flash once per second. With this, the user gets a long term peak detection, and no longer needs to constantly watch the LEDs. At the same time momentary overloads are still displayed correctly.
