Audient has announced that EVO 8 will be available in some markets early to mid-October, whilst customers in Europe will have to hold on until mid-November to get their hands on the latest audio interface from EVO by Audient.
The second interface from the new EVO range, after the release of EVO 4 earlier this year, the larger 4in / 4out EVO 8 is designed with intuitive user experience in mind, for beatmakers, producers, home recordists - and even podcasters and streamers.
With an extra set of outputs and the ability to set the monitoring levels of the two outputs independently, EVO 8 gives even more monitoring flexibility.
Marketing director, Andy Allen explains:
We still want to make technology accessible for all, no matter the skill-level or art form. EVO 8 has all the same features as EVO 4 with more inputs & outputs so you're getting more bang for your buck. EVO 8's additional inputs can really broaden your options: whether that means more musicians playing together, better definition recording instruments using multiple mics or just more guests on your podcast. It's still all about making great-sounding recordings as easy and effortless as possible.
EVO 8 also has Smartgain which automatically sets the gain levels when the user starts playing or singing.
This is perfect for anyone who wants to focus on being creative, or perhaps is just starting out. Of course, pros can still dial in the gain manually if they choose, as well as benefiting from other features they'd expect from a professional audio interface.
The EVO range provides high performance, all new EVO mic preamps with 58dB gain range, class-leading converters with a 113dB dynamic range alongside a JFET D.I, Smartgain, Smart Touchpoints, two speaker and headphone outputs, ultra-low latency, a dedicated EVO software mixer and audio loop-back functionality.
