Studio-Quality Recordings with Eight EVO Mic Preamps

EVO 16 includes eight high-quality EVO Mic Preamps, available through the combo jacks on the front and rear of the unit. Backed by 25 years of engineering experience, the company's analog EVO preamp has been designed to deliver an accurate, clean, and true-to-source version of your audio (no matter what you're recording) with ultralow distortion, a noise-free signal, and a 58 dB gain range to easily power gain-hungry mics.

 

The EVO preamp technology not only offers the sonic advantages of an analog preamp but combines it with digitally controlled precision, giving you the ability to set your gain with pinpoint accuracy right down to the decibel. This also works great for stereo pairs, as you can link pairs of input channels.

Two JFET Instrument Inputs for Classic Tone and Modern Sound

EVO's harmonically rich JFET instrument input circuit is designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, providing an ideal sonic foundation before you hit your guitar sims. The two 1/4" instrument inputs on the front panel enable you to connect instruments such as electric guitars and basses. The instrument input is sometimes also known as a DI (Direct Injection) and provides a high-input impedance to get the best tone from your instruments.

High-Performance Converters for Clear, Sharp Audio Quality

Providing a massive 121 dB of dynamic range, EVO 16's high-performance converter technology makes sure you hear your audio accurately, helping you make creative decisionsconfidently, identify issues, and improve your recording and mixing game.

Low-Latency with Ultrafast USB, Speed Meets Reliability

With rock-solid driver performance, high-speed USB connection, and ultralow latency monitoring, EVO 16 delivers the reliability needed for complex recording and mixing workflows.

Smartgain, Your Own Assistant Engineer

Smartgain is a powerful feature which helps you get recording as quickly as possible. It is able to listen to all the activated inputs and automatically set gains for all eight channels within a matter of seconds. Simply set up your mics, hit Smartgain, and press record.

The screen intelligently displays information as you need it, offering a fully immersive experience without ever looking at your computer. IPS technology means information on the screen remains legible no matter your viewing angle.

Flexible Routing Options with Eight Line Outputs

Two Dedicated Headphone Outputs

Room for Expansion with Two Digital I/Os

Whether you're recording drums or taking on a full band, EVO 16's optical inputs and outputs have got you covered. Supporting both ADAT and S/PDIF, add up to 16 channels of mic preamps to your setup, giving you plenty of options for expanding your studio down the line—pairs great with any external mic preamp.

Advanced Monitor Control for the Keen Listener

In case you are switching between two sets of speakers using the ALT monitor feature, checking your mix in Mono or quickly communicating with your artist using Talkback—all features can be activated straight from EVO 16’s front panel. The best part is you get to customize which control is assigned to the hardware F-button.

Talkback for Flowing Communication

The F-button on the front panel can be used to activate Talkback, enabling you to stay in contact with an artist through their headphones. EVO 16's dedicated talkback technology lets you use any audio source connected to your computer such as a built-in or USB microphone as your talkback mic, freeing up valuable mic preamps for recording.

Powerful EVO Mixer

the EVO Mixer software, which provides further options for setting up and routing inputs and outputs and low-latency monitoring.

Audio Loop-Back for Podcasters, Content Creators

EVO 16 includes Loop-back channels that allow you to take audio from applications on your computer and feed it to another application—great for recording computer audio, video calls, or for setting up gaming streams. You can think of it as a virtual cable that runs from your app outputs back to other app inputs.

Wordclock Output
