VIRTUAL PATCHBAY ROUTING
Remove complexity, add creativity
The Discrete 8 Pro allows connection between any signal source and any destination for turning any session scenario into reality. Yes, seriously: every analog or digital output, effect strip or DAW track can receive any of the analog or digital inputs, effect returns, computer source channels or the four stereo mixes. All this flexibility is accessible via the full virtual patch-bay or the simplified routing view – the choice is yours.

Taking advantage of high-speed Thunderbolt™, the afx2daw plug-in lets you use Synergy Core effects inside most popular DAWs, providing native workflow while keeping all the processing inside the interface.
afx2daw is available as a separate purchase from our software store, for macOS and Windows.
Going beyond the basics
With a wide variety of I/O options you can easily adapt to any recording scenario. The following set of dedicated features come in handy as workflow requirements evolve.
Word clock I/O
Sync the rest of your digital hardware to your Discrete with three Word Clock outputs. With the Word Clock input, you can slave the interface for more versatility in your clocking configuration.
Take your clean guitar signal outside the interface and record it back using your favorite amplifier/cabinet combo, without needing a reamp box.
Choose any of the eight mic inputs or the dedicated, built-in talkback mic on the front panel, to send to the monitor and headphone outputs.
This input supports either a single footswitch (on 1/4″ TS jack) to control the dim function or a dual footswitch to control both the talkback and dim functions.
