Eight High Quality Remote Mic Preamps in One Rack Space

  • Remote controllable via Ethernet, MIDI, 1788A-RC
  • Works with our 5200 interface for control from Avid and Yamaha digital mixers
  • Analog and ADAT outputs

The Aphex Model 188 provides eight high-quality Aphex transformer-coupled mic preamps in a 1U rackmountable chassis. Like our popular 1788A, all settings of the Model 188 may be remote controlled via Ethernet or MIDI, using the included 1788SW control software (PC and Mac). It can also be controlled via our 5200 interface from an Avid Pro Tools or Yamaha control surface.

The Model 188 has an eight channel analog output as well as two ADAT Optical outputs, each carrying eight channels of audio. The two outputs may be used for redundant operation, or in combination for 2X sampling rates (SMUX).
