USB Audio Interface
Connect directly to your PC/mac via USB and utilise 500R8's built-in 28-in/30-out USB audio interface for recording and playback directly to/from your chosen DAW.

Discrete Summing Mixer
Elevate your mix with analogue character and sum 8 USB sources through your 500 series modules and into the discrete analogue summing mixer to be summed and recorded back into your DAW as a stereo track.
World-Class Conversion & Clocking
To make your 500 series modules shine on your digital recordings, our conversion had to be best-in-class. We squeezed every possible .1dB of performance out of 500R8's converters to ensure that the only thing colouring your recordings are your mic placements, mixing decisions, and choice of 500 series modules.
121dB A-weighted, AES17 method, 20Hz - 20kHz

Connect 500R8 and 500ADAT together via ADAT and now you have 16 channels of 500 series modules to work with. during recording and mixing. Whilst 500ADAT offers the same performance as 500R8, any 3rd party ADAT expander is also compatible.
More Recording Channels
Record up to 16 channels directly through independent 500 series modules and directly into your DAW for processing.
More Summing Channels
Play back instrument groups/stems into all 16 available 500 series slots for summing using our C.A.S.T. link connector.
Fitted with our C.A.S.T. system, 500R8 is compatible with our N22 and N22H C.A.S.T. breakout boxes that cast-away excess cabling spaghetti and offers a cost-effective, low-maintenance, plug-and-play solution to rewire your studio. C.A.S.T. transports 4 channels of balanced, analogue audio over shielded Cat 5e, Cat 6, and Cat 7 cable directly to the location where it is needed in your studio. Create vocal booths, isolation booth, or run our a microphone to the hallway for ambience, C.A.S.T. is the best way to expand your 500R8 and get the most out of your studio space.
Send/Receive Audio From C.A.S.T.
Simply connect N22 or N22H to 500R8 using shielded Cat 5e, Cat 6, or Cat 7 cable and mics/sources connected to the breakout are patched directly to the slot inputs of 500R8. At the same time, the monitor mix created on 500R8 (including talkback) is sent through the same cable, directly to the outputs of the connected breakout.
Fully Compatible With Microphones and 48v
If you have preamps installed into 500R8, C.A.S.T. can transport their 48v phantom through the C.A.S.T. connection via Cat 5e, Cat 6, and Cat 7 and directly to condenser/active microphones connected at the end. C.A.S.T. is completely plug-and-play and works at distances up to 100m for maximum flexibility and convenience.
Housed in a 4U, 19" rack mountable steel frame, 500R8 lends it self perfectly to mobile recording setups. We tried to think of everything, even the rack ears support three unique mounting methods. You can recess 500R8 into the rack to protect the front panel controls during travel; you can also take those same rack ears and re-orientate them to become a carry handle.
500R8 is designed and engineered in the UK and every unit that leaves the factory is thoroughly tested to provide years of trouble-free and dependable service.
