Enhance your signal path
The PreSonus Studio Channel is set to take your sound well into the next level, as it noticeably outperforms the preamplifiers built into most audio recording interfaces and affordable mixers. You get essential tube tone along with the ability to sculpt and shape it in whatever direction you want. Fatten up a vocal with compression or sweeten up a piano track with EQ, you'll be ready to make the most out of whatever source you're recording with this versatile audio toolbox.

Class A tube preamplifier
The Studio Channel has everything you need to achieve big, radio-worthy sound straightaway. The preamplifier stage of the Studio Channel is based on PreSonus's award-winning BlueTube preamplifier that's known for its high headroom and big tone, thanks to a high-output 12AX7 vacuum tube. What's more, dual control Gain and Tube Drive let you dial in a wide range of sounds for sonic variety. You can give a DIed guitar track a bit of that overdriven tube edge then record a warm, smooth vocal track - it's all onboard the Studio Channel.

Fully featured VCA compressor
The PreSonus Studio Channel's compressor features a fully variable, ultra-fast and smooth VCA-based circuit. You have all the must-have compression controls at your fingertips, including ratio, threshold, attack, release, and gain make up. VCA-based compressors are known for both their musicality as well as their ability to tame even the fastest transients. Whatever source you're recording, you'll enjoy the ability to get the signal in as hot as needed without clipping.

3 band Parametric Equalizer
Use the Studio Channel's superb equalizer section to carve out unwanted frequencies and tailor your tone to enhance your overall sound. The custom-designed amplifiers in the equalizer deliver sweet-sounding gain/cut so you can have ultra-smooth highs, deep solid lows, and clear midrange. What's more, the mid-band of the EQ section has variable Q for controlling the width around the center point of the selected frequency. Plus, high and low frequency bands let you select peak/dip or shelving frequencies.

NIce Tube Preamp for the Price, but Better when Upgraded
Product Rating

Product Review

As a sax player, I was looking for a decent tube preamp for a low cost. It has a noticeable difference in presence and smoothness as compared to PreSonus' stock XMAX preamps in their interfaces. The compressor stage is very flexible and does good job contouring the sound. However, the unit "really" shines and the sound quality increases if you replace the "stock" tube with a better quality 12AX7 tube like a Tung-Sol 12AX7 ECC803S or a Genalex Gold Lion.

The right buy for the right mix!

Product Review

I needed a Mic Preamp that provided the quality and ability to handle my setup and boy did this Preamp do the job! My mixes have been upgraded and the perfomance I needed from a preamp has been taken to another level! This is a great buy for those who need the right preamp and an unbeatable price!

Well worth the money!

Product Review

I had done quite a bit of research prior to purchase.. although there are many other preamps on the market I felt that I could get a professional sound and not have to spend close to $1k.. It absolutely delivers on that and in my studio has proven to be extremely versatile.. I’ve used for bass, vox, guitar and keyboard.. I’ve been successful in getting professional level tone with just the Presonus Preamp and stock plug-ins! I would highly recommend this for every home studio who wants to add a quality preamp! Best value for the money and then some.

Studio quality with good bang-for-the-buck

Product Review

We own a studio writing/recording for major film, games, and TV. We researched the reviews on this product before purchasing and since purchasing it, we are happy with our choice. We recently started producing a new show where we have multiple simultaneous interacting voices. We had to add in one more mic and it's associated gear for the show. We needed to match the "hard-to-reproduce" tube tonal quality and compression signature of a vintage Presonus mic preamp from the 90's so the voices sounded consistent. This vintage unit has warmth and clarity hard to find today except in tube vocal processors over $4k. This unit actually exceeds our expectations. Warm consistent sound with good control. After installation we went to immediate recording time and matched the sound of the vintage unit in seconds. Wish it had a desser but that can be applied in pre via DAW. Sound is clean and consistent. Worth three times what we paid for it versus the benefit we have from it in the studio.

Better than expected

Product Review

I used to think adding an external preamp was not necessary with the current preamps in audio interfaces. Boy was I wrong. This thing makes my vocals, guitar, and bass great!

This is my first Preamp and am very impressed! PreSonus knocks this one out of the park with ease of use and true tube sound, what a great addition to my studio and a great price as always from American Musical Supply.
