Echo AudioFire Pre8 Digital Recording Interface

Pros Great sounding pres. Their web site exemplifies this attitude. Rated 5 out of 5 by Addisblackwidow from Hit box: It gives you 16 inputs and 16 outputs of high-resolution audio to the recording software of your choice. Those who have been following Echo’s product line closely will be aware that the company already has a line of AudioFire interfaces, but the addition of the ‘Pre’ in the title here reveals all, as the first in what may well become a line of much more flexible, hands-on interfaces.

Auto detects Line or Mic level inputs. The product itself is great!

The AudioFire Pre8 can record audio at specs up to 96kHz at rpe8 selected via software and through the FireWire connection, recording latency is impressively low. My studio is in my bedroom and I don’t have a room for live drums so I use my elec drums, plus direct bass, and direct guitar.


Made a few hits with it and this is the shhh youknow. Due to the high visibility of its rivals, Echo Digital Audio isn’t perhaps the first name which springs to mind for those considering an interface purchase, yet this Californian firm has a proud pedigree, and its latest model, the AudioFire Pre8, combines the company’s established interface know-how with a set of its mic preamps.

Buy this unit with confidence. I love my usb pre I got Echo AudioFire Pre8 specs. I also find the case to be both rugged and good looking for table-top use. Echo AudioFire Pre8 accessories.

I wish Echo had retained a feature from my old Onyx, with a dedicated pair of main outputs separate from 1, 2 which are not volume controlled.

The reviews of the Audiofire Pre 8 were consistently great! To the right of these you’ll find gain knobs for inputs three to eight with a global phantom power switch for these to ahdiofire right. I am a huge proponent of That’s Corp.

Not only do they boast improved-on versions of the Layla pres, but they also feature better, faster converters, firewire connectivity, and easy daisy-chaining ability between all Audiofire models in addition to all functioning with the same drivers. Rated 5 out of 5 by tonybrunomusic from Great sounding Interface!


Echo Audio AudioFire Pre8 review | MusicRadar

Though they cost a tad more, I have fallen in love with them over the heavy-weights listed above. The package includes the now familiar combination of the hardware interface itself and a dedicated piece of software to help configure its assorted ins and outs, which we’ll get to shortly. Echo is a dark-horse company who quietly provide rock-solid products with professional audiofure support.

When the box arrived, I set it up and blew new firmware on my usual Audifire platform, verifying that that unit would launch Nuendo.

Metering is attractive and useful; startup display confirms more than just power-on. And I spend a lot of time researching Audiofire.

I couldn’t find one bad review on it and the specs were great! Cons There’s plenty of competition at this price point. Alternate views of item shown. This is very true, but the Audiofire units have much more to offer zudiofire just great prosumer out-of-box preamps. Echo achieved moderate fame for their groundbreaking Layla units a few years back, but they haven’t stopped.
