Audio Developments will be demonstrating its cost-effective ENG solution, the AD082. This unit consists of eight mic amps and limiters, switchable phantom power and balanced direct outputs – the same architecture as used in the AD149 film mixer, renowned for its sound quality and build.
With a footprint the same size as the Zoom F8 recorder, the AD082 gives the customer a very economical ENG kit with the best of both worlds, a superb analogue mic input and limiter, ENG-style fader knobs on channels 1-4, channel 5-8 on push-to-operate knobs and PFL on each input. Used with the flexibility of the F8 recorder, it give a small and light weight solution to sound engineers.
Designed to be power from an external NP1 style battery it has an additional power out socket to supply the recorder. All monitoring can be done on the AD082, it has a headphone output and level control. A separate input allows any F8 monitor configuration to be fed to the AD082 headphones.
