Product Description

The Cranborne Audio 500R8 is a USB audio interface that combines a 500 series rack and high-performance AD/DA conversion with all the features and essentials tools you need, making it a great centrepiece for your studio.

500R8 features the studio essentials that you need to build your dream studio such as an 8-into-2 high-headroom analog summing mixer, comprehensive monitor controller with talkback facility, 16-in/16-out ADAT interface, as well as a zero-latency analog artist mixer with reference-quality, high-powered headphone outputs.

The combination of highly-accurate, low-jitter clocking and high-performance digital conversion ensures that every ounce of analogue character is captured with the utmost detail - free of unwanted digital artifacts from the conversion process and with a wide dynamic range thanks to 500R8's high-headroom analog design and low noise floor.

500R8 features a comprehensive monitor controller with connectivity for two sets of studio monitors. As well as seamless speaker switching between both sets of studio monitors, there’s a Mono button that sums L-R channels to check for mono compatibility, a DIM switch that drops the speaker volume by 12dB for relaxed discussions during recordings, and a speaker mute switch for tracking with headphones.

500R8 also features a comprehensive monitor controller (for two sets of monitors) and talkback section with XLR input, 48v phantom power, push-to-talk operation, and automatic signal routing to all C.A.S.T. and headphones outputs connected to the system.

C.A.S.T. stands for Cat 5 Analogue Snake Transport and enables cost effective and organised cable management around your studio. C.A.S.T. repurposes off-the-shelf, shielded Cat5 Networking cables to transport 4 channels of balanced analog audio over a single cable. 500R8 has 4 C.A.S.T. IN ports that allow you to connect C.A.S.T. enabled breakout boxes (such as the Cranborne Audio N22 and N22H) to 500R8 and relocate analog I/O wherever it is needed around the studio.
