Brent from Inside Audio visited AES in New York to see some interesting booths, we came across Cranborne Audio that makes very interesting high-end studio hardware such as the 500R8 28in/30out audio interface!
"500R8 has everything you need to build your dream analogue/digital hybrid studio. Each element has been carefully considered and designed to give you best of everything combined into a package that is intuitive (and fun) to use."
USB Audio Interface
Connect directly to your PC/mac via USB and utilise 500R8's built-in 28-in/30-out USB audio interface for recording and playback directly to/from your chosen DAW.
Switch between two sets of speakers, toggle Mono sum, Mute, Dim, and Talkback facilities whilst monitoring the peak level of your mix with 28-segments of LED detail by using the built-in, high-headroom monitor controller.
Zero Latency Artist Mixer
Monitor live sources in the analogue domain with zero latency by using dedicated mix level and pan controls per-channel combined with our seriously high-powered headphone amps.
Discrete Summing Mixer
Elevate your mix with analogue character and sum 8 USB sources through your 500 series modules and into the discrete analogue summing mixer to be summed and recorded back into your DAW as a stereo track.
