Focusrite ISA 428 MKII 4 Channel Classic ISA Mic Preamp/DI

Featured with Focusrite's transformer-based preamps, the Focusrite has designed the ISA428 MkII which is a 4-channel microphone preamp. The unit is an ideal front end for the audio professional, whether utilizing digital or analog recording, with selectable input impedance, direct instrument inputs and an optional 8-channels of high-quality analog to digital conversion. 

Features:

  • Four ISA Series Transformer-Based Preamps: SA series microphone preamps have been the producers' choice on countless hit records over the last two decades
  • Selectable Impedance: Ideal for microphone matching or extended microphone creativity - settings include the "Vintage ISA110" setting that provides the original Focusrite signature sound
  • Variable High-Pass Focusrite Filter: Provided on every channel, this is the same filter as featured on the original ISA428
