The Audio Octo Mic by RME is an analog solid state pre amp that is a both a pre amp and a DI box in one. It has 2 1/4 inch DI inputs and XLR connections as well. It is a rackable unit.


The configuration of the Octo Mic is pretty easy to follow and understand, and there are a lot of nice options and parameters to help you get your level in the best possible way. There are two large knobs for gain and level, as well as buttons that are either on or off for 48V phantom power, either Lo-Z or Hi-Z, either mic or DI, a low cut, and a phase button. There are also two LED lights that show power and the level coming. The manual for Octo Mic is pretty complete, but the pre amp is easy enough to use that you don't need the manual to learn how to use this.


The sound quality of Octo Mic is pretty great. The pre amp is full sounding and will faithfully reproduce whatever mic or direct input that you throw this through. It has a rich and warm tone quality to it that makes it great for applications of all types. I have used the Octo Mic on everything from vocals to guitars, always with results that I'm happy with. The overall sound of the Octo Mic is full and is a great choice for applications of all types.


I've been using the Octo Mic for about a year and I've found it to be both a great direct input box and mic pre. I have come to know Universal Audio as a company that makes top end gear that really sounds great and is easy to use. The price of the Octo Mic is pretty reasonable, and isn't overpriced at all in my opinion. If you are looking for a reliably great sound mic pre and DI box in on, this is seriously worth a look.
