The Momentum mi8 is the 8 channel analog input component of Pro Co’s digital snake system. The mi8 is capable of converting 8 channels of line or mic level audio for distribution on a Momentum audio network. Using Texas Instruments Burr Brown, VCA mic pre-amps and Cirrus Logic A/D converters, up to 256 active inputs can be combined per Momentum system. Gigabit Ethernet is standard on all Momentum audio products and all components are Power Over Ethernet (PoE) 802.3af compatible.

Each input channel includes phantom power, line or mic level input and mic pre-amp level control. All functions are accessible through the front panel, mts-a dedicated touch screen controller, or PC software.

A full compliment of options are available to ensure that Momentum can integrate into your system configuration. Equally at home in your studio rack or on a live stage, the mi8 is the first step to building your Momentum Digital Snake System.
