Audient EVO 8 



High-Quality Audio Performance

Building on Audient's 20+ years of audio design experience, the EVO 8 gives you premium audio quality—58 dB gain range, -128 dB mic pre EIN, and 113 dB dynamic range—on your desktop; something that benefits content creators, producers, and instrumentalists in home studios or on the go.


4-Channel Input Section

Record panel podcasts or several musicians through the warm, accurate EVO preamps and high-performance AKM converters. The EVO 8 features four XLR-1/4" combo mic/line inputs and a 1/4" Hi-Z JFET instrument input to handle a variety of sources from dynamic and condenser mics to electric guitars and outboard preamps.


Dual Headphone Outs and Four Line Outputs

With four balanced 1/4" line outputs and two 1/4" headphone outputs, the EVO 8 can act as the central hub for multiple sets of speakers and headphones. Plus, the touch points and large rotary control provide intuitive access to volume adjustments for the outputs.



Connecting a set of headphones to either of the headphone ports will automatically mute the corresponding speaker outputs, making switching between loudspeaker monitoring and headphone monitoring quick and seamless.


Smartgain Mode

Make sure you capture everything perfectly with Smartgain mode. Start playing or singing and Smartgain mode will automatically set the level of your microphones. You can even perfectly match and adjust gain to two channels simultaneously.


Work Anywhere

All of EVO 8's advanced features are powered directly from your computer via USB, letting you start recording on the go, whenever inspiration strikes.


Audio Loopback

Audio loopback enables you to record your computer audio at the same time as your microphones, making it ideal for podcasters and streamers.

  • Record your computer's audio
  • Record guest Skype/video calls
  • Record gaming audio


Powerful Control

  • Smart Touchpoints: Control your speakers, headphones, and channels all using the volume encoder.
  • Monitor Mix: Leave latency behind. Blend between your inputs and DAW playback to reduce latency when recording.
  • Monitor Pan: Pan your inputs and DAW playback left or right and create the perfect headphone balance for recording.
  • Switchable Phantom Power: Individually switch 48V phantom power on/off for each channel and give your microphones the power they need.
  • Multifunction Buttons: Channels 1-4 and both volume buttons can quickly be muted by simply holding them down until they begin to flash.
  • Software Control: Set the gain of your mic pres using your DAW (with compatible software), your settings will also be stored in your session.
