The Sound Devices USBPre 2 is a complete, portable hardware interface for computer-based digital recording. USBPre 2 quickly and easily interfaces studio microphones, line-level sources, musical instruments, and consumer audio electronics with personal computers and professional, balanced line-level input equipment. Using the same extended bandwidth, low-noise microphone preamplifiers and digital converters as the 7-Series digital recorders, it offers the most direct signal path into the computer.
It can also be used as a standalone converter. Designed for USB-equipped Mac® OS X 10.4+, Windows®XP/Vista/7, and Linux based computers, all analogue-to-digital conversion is done outside the computer, in the USBPre 2, for superior audio performance.S/PDIF coaxial and TOSlink I/O enables direct digital transfers into and out of the computer while balanced mic or line-level XLR outputs allow interconnection with professional analogue equipment and unbalanced RCA (phono) stereo I/O allows interconnection with other commercial equipment. USBPre 2 has the flexibility to work with most PC and Mac recording, streaming, and measurement software. Powered solely by the USB port from either notebook or desktop computers, no additional power source is required - the computer provides all power needed for operation. It operates as a two-channel preamp, stand-alone A-D or D-A converter or two-input mixer (to mono). Each channel is independently selectable mic/line/aux (both channels selected for digital input). All controls are on the front panel, except for dip switch settings on the rear, that ensure there are no software-only features, such as limiters and high-pass filters.
48V phantom powering to the mic inputs is provided. A 23-segment, multicolour LED meter provides peak or VU indications.
A mix control enables zero-delay monitoring of source audio, computer audio, or a mix of both. Additional outputs are provided to drive headphones or preamps.Mic input: 2 x XLR 3-pin female, electronically balanced. Line input: 2 x 6.35mm 3-pole jack, electronically balanced.
