The Tube MP Studio V3™ single channel mic pre features ART's new V3™ (Variable Valve Voicing) Technology -- found only in ART microphone preamplification systems.
V3™ provides optimized reference points to begin the recording process. The V3™ presets were created and fine-tuned by some of the industry's top studio and live-sound engineers, along with our veteran engineering department. V3™ allows you to select between a multitude of preamp settings designed for guitars (electric and acoustic), keyboards, bass guitars, drums, vocals and more. V3™ gives you incredible presets for every instrument you record, so all your recordings will sound professional. Need to tweak the presets? Go right ahead -- hone your perfect tone! That's the power of V3™.
V3™ also incorporates ART's OPL™ (Output Protection Limiter), which precisely and accurately controls and maintains the output peak signal. The OPL™ circuitry is crucial in protecting the next link in a signal chain - such as a hard-disk recording system or a sound card.
While it's primary application is to be used with a microphone, the Tube MP Studio V3™ can also function as a direct box - impedance matching, amplifying and improving the sound of any instrument plugged into it. The design of the Tube MP Studio V3™ allows it to add warmth and fatness to a signal while maintaining low-noise.
The Tube MP Studio V3™ features all the tone and functionality of its predecessor, the world's number one Tube Mic Pre, the Tube MP. Phase Reverse, +48v phantom power, clip LED and a +20dB switch are all included, as well as an analog VU meter for visual tracking of the signal.
Whether you're working with a computer, hard-disk, or digital multitrack recorder, the Tube MP Studio V3’s design delivers professional recording studio results at a fraction of the cost of comparable equipment.
The Tube MP Studio V3™ offers superior performance and sound quality to the "on-board" preamps found in today's low-cost mixers and multi-trackers. Professional quality sound combined with professional features - a hand-selected 12AX7a Tube, Phantom Power and Phase Reverse - are what make the Tube MP Studio V3™ an outstanding microphone preamp.
The Tube MP Studio V3™ can be used in a wide variety of applications including recording, project and home studios, where it’s Variable Valve Voicing really shines. It also functions as a direct box, with impedance matching and preamplification for line-level sources.
