ART Tube MP Studio Microphone Preamp

Like the ART Tube MP, the ART Tube MP Studio has professional features like a hand-selected 12AX7a tube, phantom power and Phase Reverse -- which have made the Tube MP a staple in thousands of studios worldwide.

The Tube MP Studio goes even further, with the inclusion of ART's OPL (Output Protection Limiter), which protects the next link in your signal chain -- like a sound card or any digital processor.

The Tube MP Studio also includes an analog VU meter for measurement of the unit's output level, which enables the user to keep his signal consistent with desired levels.

The meter also reflects the impact of the OPL circuitry on the signal. For example, if the signal is "in the red" on the meter, the meter will reflect the attenuation of the signal when the OPL is activated.

The Tube MP Studio can be used in a wide variety of applications, including recording, project, and home studios -- as a microphone preamp, and as a world-class direct box for bass guitars, synthesizers, keyboards, and just about anything else that needs the ART Tube touch.

The Tube MP Studio is a great upgrade from low-quality mixer preamps...why record with anything else?

Applications:

- Makes microphones sound big, warm, and full. The Tube MP Studio is fantastic on vocal mics!
- OPL Limiter helps protect soundcards, hard disk recorders, and any other processing from becoming overloaded. You get the most out of your processor!
- VU metering helps you keep your signal at your desired level.
- Plug in a sythesizer or keyboard, and hear how warm and full they can really sound!
- Bassists: the Tube MP Studio is perhaps the ultimate direct box for bass guitars...for recording and live use.
- Acoustic guitarists are also discovering how great their instruments sound through the Tube MP Studio...warm and full!

- Analog VU Meter
- OPL Output Protection Limiter
- Hand-selected 12AX7A vacuum tube
- Variable Input and Output Gain Controls
- Provides over 60 dB of Gain
- +48 Phantom Power Switch

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Sound: I purchase 2 of these units and use them in various formation. I have used them in line for analogue to digital transfer of vinyl records and cassettes for warming up analogue to digital transfers to my computer. I have also use it for a DI box to play my bass through. Also works well with guitar to give a warm rich sound. This also is great for a mic preamp and gives a very warm sound for vocal tracks. The ART Tube MP just blows me away especially for the $30 I paid for it. I think I will buy a couple of more at this price. The sound of this unit is unbelievable for the price. Clear, warm, and clean. Feature: At this price I did not expect a power supply to come with it - it did. There is also a 3 year manufacturers waranty with the unit which is unbelievable since most electronic equipment usually has a year warranty or less. You can tell this company is really trying to make a name for themselves. This is a quality unit at a fantastic price. I don't know what else they could improve on for this unit. Ease of Use: Plug and go. Quality: Wow!!! When I ordered this I thought it was going to be in a plastic case. It is in a steel casing and built like a tank. Value: This unit is comparable to units costing $200. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to use. The Wow Factor: This unit is pretty sexy with the retro style analogue meter. Overall: This is studio quality equipment at an extremely cheap price and fits in well in the digital realm to warm up whatever you are recording.

Thank you. Your vote has been counted. Could you briefly tell us why the review was or was not helpful?

Sound: Crisp, clear, yet smooth and rich. True tube preamp with a true tube preamp sound. I don't give high marks easily, but this baby can esily take on 20 times more expensive products in its class. Simply beautiful on acoustic guitar. Feature: All essential are there: gain dial, VU, limiter (great!) and few extras: XLR and 1/4" inputs and outputs; metal case Ease of Use: Simple to use; dial in gain, choose output level and off you go. Quality: Professional feel. Metal case,solid and heavy. Value: By far best $30 I have ever spent on a peace of studio equipment (and I have spent $$$) Manufacturer Support: n/a The Wow Factor: Sleek, elegant design with pro feel. Overall: I will be buying another one very soon for stereo applications. This is a keeper.
