A little under a year ago Audient announced the birth of their sister brand EVO. The first release by EVO was the EVO 4 two in two out audio interface which has over the year gone on to become one of the most sort after small audio interfaces on the market with demand outstripping supply. At the time of announcement Audient also revealed there will be a big brother to the EVO 4 called the EVO 8. Many eager customers have been waiting patiently for this 4 in 4 out Smart Gain Audio interface the land. Well, wait no further. The EVO 8 by Audient is here.
EVO 8 has all of the innovative, new features found on the EVO 4 like Smart Gain, Loop-Back and Smart Touch but provides additional inputs, extra outputs and dual headphone sends – all of this off bus power using USB C to USB C.
The very first reason you’d buy the EVO 8 over the EVO 4 is that it has 4 dedicated Microphone Preamps enabling you to record 4 instruments onto individual tracks at the same time. You can also Pod Cast up to 4 people with separate mics at the same time. EVO 8 also has 4 independent audio outputs – these can be used to feed two sets of studio monitors with independent volume control for each. Further to this the EVO 8 has two dedicated headphone outputs. This is invaluable if your singer wants a different headphone volume to you.
