This all-new version of the company's USBPre computer audio interface is now shipping. The 2-channel USBPre 2 offers professionals a powerful, easy-to-use, portable interface to interconnect audio sources to Mac OS and Windows computers over USB. Featuring a new electronic design, USBPre 2 uses the same extended bandwidth, low-noise microphone preamplifiers and digital converters as Sound Devices' 7 Series digital recorders.

The class-compliant, plug-and-play device accepts mic level, line-level, consumer line-level and S/PDIF digital (coaxial or TOSLINK) inputs. Its microphone preamplifiers have selectable analog limiters, highpass filters, 48V phantom power and high-resolution LED meters. Because the USBPre 2 draws its power solely from the computer’s USB port, no additional power source is required.

Sound Devices designed the USBPre 2 for both reference-quality input and output. Its balanced XLR outputs offer rejection to interference and are switch-selectable between mic or line-level. Additionally, a consumer RCA-type output is available for connection to unbalanced inputs. Its headphone amplifier drives full-sized headphones with clean gain.

With its stand-alone mode, the USBPre 2 functions as a 2-channel microphone preamplifier with analog, digital and headphone outputs. A built-in high-resolution LED level meter is also available.
