A Lot Of Tube Sound For NOT A Lot Of Money!

The Tube MP Studio V3 features ART's new V3 (Variable Valve Voicing) Technology. 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 ART's accomplished 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 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.

Art Tube MP Studio V3

Slick little unit. Warmed vocals. and quiet. For me, it's just right.
5/5

A GREAT PREAMP FOR COLOR , AND SATURATION OPTIONS

I HAVE A FOCUSRITE INTERFACE , BUT I USED THIS TO RECORD LIKE 15 HIP HOP TRACKS THE OTHER NIGHT , GOING THROUGH MOGAMI CABLES, AND RECORDING AT 96KHZ SAMPLE RATE. AND I LOVE THE SOUND OF THE VOCALS. THE ROTARY KNOB WITH THE PRESETS IS JUST A FUNCTION OF CHANGING THE TONE , AND THE TUBE SATURATION COMING OUT OF THE MIC PRE. I LIKE THIS BETTER THAN MY PERSONS TUBE PRE V2 . I MIGHT HAVE TO GET THE ART PRO MPA 2 IN A FEW MONTHS. I THINK ALL TUBE PREAMPS SHOULD HAVE ROTARY KNOB TO CHANGE THE TONE AND SATURATION OF THE TUBE, INSTEAD OF BUYING DIFFERENT TUBES. I AM PRETTY CONFIDENT MY MIXTAPES AND ALBUMS WILL COME OUT GREAT , THIS COMBINED WITH PLUGINS LIKE A Waves Scheps 73 AND A CLA76 WILL BE A DREAMY SOUND.

I love this thing

I needed a way to pad down my pedal board signal as it hits my solid state amp. The amp has two channels, clean and "lead". Clean gives me the clarity and tone my pedals require but the lead channel has a harsh fuzz like distortion when engaged. By lowering the output level my signal hits the amp just under it's harsh level and gently feeds my signal to the amp. I do this by setting the output level at 9:00. This smooth's the distortion to an overdrive. Perfect. Then, it gets better, by using the "multi" setting and setting the input at 3:00 the tube and compressor warm the tone. This is apparent at any volume or channel. It's perfect for warming ss amps, and inexpensive enough to be used by all. Too Cool.

Excellent service and product

I bought this as a quick, inexpensive fix to a larger problem. It worked beautifully . The real praise belongs to Stewart Hisey ,my Sweetwater rep. He answered every question in a kindly, professional manner . Stewart gave me number of possibilities in all price ranges . Even though he knew it was a small purchase, I was treated as if I were spending thousands. I am very grateful to Stewart Hisey and Sweetwater.

Amazing

I got way more out of this thing than I thought I would. I got it to warm up vocals that were going through a cold condenser mic. I now run everything through this and get a great tube sound for all my tracks. It's a nice analog sound in a digital age.
