Product Description

The ART Tube MP/C Microphone Preamp / Compressor is a multi-purpose tool for audio engineering and recording. Two independent circuits featuring a tube-based analog preamplifier and a VCA-less compressor with optical gain reduction control are housed in one, convenient desk-top chassis. Used as a microphone/line preamp or as a DI (direct) box, the Tube MP/C is designed to work seamlessly with any recording, sound-reinforcement, or electronic instrument setup. ART's Tube MP/C circuitry is a hybrid design utilizing the latest, most advanced, solid-state and tube technology.

ART Tube MP/C Microphone Preamp / Compressor Features:

  • Tube-based mic/line preamplifier with up to 80 dB of gain
  • Hand-selected 12AX7a tube
  • Optical (VCA-less) compressor circuitry = transparent dynamics control
  • 1/4 inch unbalanced inputs and outputs
  • XLR balanced inputs and outputs
  • Transformer isolated XLR output
  • Selectable output range for Line/Instrument interface levels
  • LED meters for Tube Warmth, Gain Reduction and Output level
  • +48V phantom power
  • Phase reversal switch
  • Selectable release time settings
  • > 90dB dynamic range
  • Custom extruded aluminum chassis

The ART Tube MP/C preamplifier's active balanced solid-state input provides extremely low noise and excellent common mode rejection. The 1/4 inch high impedance input prevents loading of any connected device making the ART Tube MP/C perfect for DI or line level applications. The preamplifier's second stage 12AX7a tube runs on a regulated DC voltage providing an additional 20dB of gain.

The compression circuit features a VCA-less design and utilizes optical electronics (Vactrol) coupled with a 12AX7a vacuum tube gain stage for superior musical performance.

Inexpensive Chime!

What is your opinion of this product?
This ART MP/C tube preamp/compressor is perfect if you don't have a lot of money or acquired technical know how with gain stage dynamics, compression/limiting/sustain, and preamp before main amp interplay. The unit will definitely up your working knowledge of tube amp tonality even if your main amp this feeds is solid state. ART has put a studio grade processor in the grungers garage...

Great for live tracking of bass
What is your opinion of this product?
I was very surprised. I used this as a DI for bass during live tracking of a full band, and the bass sounded great!
