Sound Devices has updated its USBPre computer audio interface.

Sound Devices USBPre 2‘The original Sound Devices USBPre was the first bus-powered USB interface with phantom-powered mic inputs,’ says MD, says Jon Tatooles. ‘The convenience and flexibility it offered proved quite popular with sound engineers. The USBPre 2 is an all-new update of that original, with powrful new features and superior audio performance. It is the perfect portable audio interface for Avid, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Adobe Premiere Pro editing systems. System engineers will also appreciate its ability to output full line level signals on XLR connectors.’

Intended for voiceover recording, reference playback and monitoring and test and measurement applications, the two-channel USBPre 2 features a new electronic design, USBPre 2 uses the same microphone preamplifiers and digital converters as Sound Devices award-winning 7-Series Digital Recorders. The class-compliant, plug-and-play device accepts mic level, line level, consumer line level and SPDIF digital (coaxial or TOSLINK) inputs. Its microphone preamplifiers have selectable analogue limiters, high-pass filters, 48V phantom power, and high-resolution LED meters. Because the USBPre 2 draws its power solely from the computer’s USB port, no additional power source is required.

Balanced XLR outputs are switch-selectable between mic or line level. Additionally, a consumer RCA-type output is available for connection to unbalanced inputs. Its headphone amplifier easily drives full-sized headphones with extensive, clean gain.

In its stand-alone mode, the USBPre 2 functions as a two-channel microphone preamplifier with analogue, digital and headphone outputs. Stand-alone mode is perfect for applications that require an easy-to-use, quality microphone preamplifier. A built-in high-resolution LED level meter helps further facilitate ease of use.
