Single channel mic preamp, works great with microphones, keyboard or guitars, adding the warmth only real tubes can provide.

Show full description »

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.

ART Tube MP - Studio V3 Mic Preamp Reviews

9/10

ART V3

As a computer based musician (guitar straight into DAW) I was looking for a preamp to 1. get a better signal into the PC and 2. warm up my sound a bit. This little box does both - with minimal fuss. Being analogue, you have to make a note of setting you\'ve used but really you can get a large range of tones.
Preamps like this, don\'t make a hugh difference - and you can\'t pollish a t**d, but used through a mix it does improve the overall tonal quality.

Art Tube MP Studio V3

I love this piece of gear. It has some lovely preset voicings for easy setup and with plenty of gain for my SM57 it sounds great.

The instrument input is very handy with a wide range of tones for my electric guitar including a lovely rich warm tube sound.

I have been running the output into an M-Audio 2496 and the combination is great with ease of use and a good variety of sounds.

On the down side I would have liked a stereo pair like on the Audio Buddy, but as a singer songwriter this is a good starter with an excelent value for money price tag.
