    Comments about M-Audio Octane 8-Channel Mic Preamp with ADAT Lightpipe:

    I got a couple of these units to feed 16 extra channels into/through a M-Audio ProFire 2626. They were easy to set up and the audio quality has been great.

    Comments about M-Audio Octane 8-Channel Mic Preamp with ADAT Lightpipe:

    I needed something to expand the inputs of my Projectmix I/o and this helped me add 8 addition inputs thru the adat and the best thing is that the control surfaces volume control overrides the manual dcontrol on the unit. i will definatly look into purchasing another one if i need an additional 8 inputs
