Product Description

Key Features

Four ISA series transformer-based preamps

ISA series mic preamps have been the producers' choice on countless hit records over the last two decades.

Eight-channel optional A-D converter

Four additional A-D converter inputs allow eight channels of high quality conversion, with a dynamic range of 122dB and jitter performance below 250 picoseconds.

Selectable impedance

Ideal for mic matching or extended microphone creativity. Settings include the 'Vintage ISA110' setting, providing the original focusrite signature sound.

Four front panel instrument inputs

Instant access on the front fascia - no separate DI box required.

Dedicated analogue insert points

Switchable insert points are featured on every channel, allowing routing (between preamp and output) through additional external processing.

Specifications

We always quote 'real world' performance figures (measured to the AES17 standard). Some companies choose to quote chipset performance, which is misleading, and here's why.

Mic Inputs

  • Frequency response at minimum gain (0dB): -0.35dB at 20Hz and 3dB at 122kHz
  • Frequency response at maximum gain (60dB): 2.5dB at 20Hz and 3dB 103kHz
  • Gain range: 0dB to +60dB in 10dB steps, plus 0dB to +20dB continuously variable trim
  • Maximum headroom: +7.4dBu
  • THD+N: 0.0009% (measured at 1kHz -20dBu input signal, at 30dB gain setting, with a 20Hz/22kHz bandpass filter)
  • Noise EIN: -126dB (measured at 60dB of gain with 150 termination and 20Hz/22kHz bandpass filter)
  • Noise at main output with unity gain: -98dBu (measured with a 20Hz/22kHz bandpass filter)
  • SNR: 123dB (relative to max output 25dBu)
  • SNR: 120dB (relative to 0dBFS (+22dBu)
  • CMRR: 88dB.
  • Input Impedance, variable: 600, 1400, 2400, 6800

Line Inputs

  • Frequency Response at unity gain (0dB): -0.3dB at 20Hz and 3dB at 94kHz
  • Gain range: -20dB to +10dB in 10dB steps, plus 0dB to +20dB continuously variable trim
  • Maximum headroom: +25.4dBu
  • THD+N: 0.002% (measured with +4dBu input signal, 0dB gain setting, with a 20Hz/22kHz bandpass filter)
  • Noise at main output with unity gain: -91dBu (measured with a 20Hz/22kHz bandpass filter)
  • SNR: 116dB (relative to max output 25dBu)
  • SNR: 113dB (relative to 0dBFS +22dBu). Input Impedance: 10k

Instrument Inputs

  • Frequency Response at +10dB gain: -0.2dB at 20Hz and 0dB at 200kHz
  • Frequency Response at +40dB gain: -3dB at 20Hz and 3dB at 38.4kHz
  • Gain range: +10dB to +40dB continuously variable
  • Maximum headroom: +11.5dBu
  • THD+N: 0.006% (measured with 20dBu input signal, at minimum gain (+10dB), with a 20Hz/22kHz bandpass filter)
  • Noise at main output with minimum gain (+10dB): -95dBu (measured with a 20Hz/22kHz bandpass filter)
  • Input Impedance = 1M

High Pass Filter

  • Roll off = 18dB per octave 3 pole filter
  • Frequency range: 16Hz to 420Hz (continuously variable, measured at the 3dB down point)

Meters

6 LED meter is calibrated 0dBFS = +22dBu (the maximum level which can be correctly converted by the optional internal A/D converter before overload occurs). The meter calibration points are as follows:

  • Meter panel calibration value in dBFS / Equivalent dBu value
  • 0dBFS / +22dBu
  • -2dBFS / +20dBu
  • -6dBFS / +16dBu
  • -12dBFS / +10dBu
  • -18dBFS / +4dBu
  • -42dBFS / -20dBu

  • 4 instrument 14 TS jack inputs on front panel
  • 4 microphone XLR inputs on rear panel
  • 4 line 14 TRS jacks on rear panel
