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 an 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.
