CAT: MICTUBE SOLO
28 Nov 11
Single-channel tube microphone preamplifier
Review: Add warm, vintage tone to any mic or instrument with the Mictube Solo preamplifier. Ideal for any recording or live setup, the Mictube Solo features an easy-to-use control layout and one of the most classic sounding, lowest-noise vacuum tubes, the legendary 12AX7. Aside from the tube, the Mictube Solo features a minimized circuit path, so it preserves the essence of the signal coming from the microphone faithfully.
The MicTube raises the level of any mic up to line level, adding as much or as little of the tube's signature sound as you like. 2 knobs and 4 buttons are all you need to optimize the Mictube Solo for virtually any setting. You'll find a -20 dB pad switch for mics with hotter outputs or louder sound sources. A phase reverse switch helps you optimize multi-mic setups, and the Mictube Solo provides +48 volt phantom power for any condenser microphone.
In additional to a standard 3-pin XLR jack for microphones, the Mictube Solo also gives you a 1/4", high-impedance DI jack for in plugging guitars and basses. Separate Gain and Drive (vintage) controls allow you to dial in the perfect blend of level and tone, and a vintage-style VU meter is perfect for keeping an eye on things. Professional XLR and 1/4" outputs complete the professional package.
CAT: MICRO MIX
04 Jun 12
Microphone amplifier with phantom power
Review: Sometimes you need to connect a low-impedance or condenser microphone to something which does not support it, such as a high-impedance mixer input, a PC sound card, a powered speaker or possibly an instrument amp. Situations like this call for a mic preamp like the MicroMIX to act as an interface. Simplicity and economy are important factors. A level control and a simple overload indicator such as a Clip LED will also help you to keep the signal clean.
CAT: PRO MPAII
25 Jun 12
2-channel microphone preamplifier
Review: The ART Pro MPA II is an affordable high performance microphone preamp.
The ART Pro MPA II can be configured for dual mono or stereo operation with selectable mid/side mic support, summing the adjacent channel, to decode left/right signals.

Housed in a standard 2U space rack-mountable steel chassis, with CNC routed black anodized aluminum face panel, the Pro MPA II is designed to deliver years of reliable operation in the studio, production facility, or on the road for live sound reinforcement.
CAT: PRO SPLIT
04 Jun 12
2-way mic splitter
Review: The ProSplit provides one direct output and one transformer isolated output from a single microphone. Applications include sending the direct output to the main or front-of-house mixer, with the second isolated output being sent to a monitor or recording mixer. The direct output passes phantom power from the main mixer to the microphone for use with condenser microphones.
The ProSplit includes a ground-lift switch on the isolated output to reduce noise due to ground loops between connected equipment. For versatility the ProSplit also features an attenuator pad switch on the input that can be used to alternately connect a preamplified (line-level) signal to the 2 microphone-level ProSplit outputs.
CAT: SPLITCOM PRO
04 Jun 12
Review: Use the SPLITComPro to split or combine balanced low impedance microphone signals.
As a splitter: the SPLITComPro provides one direct-coupled output and one isolated output from a single microphone. Applications include sending the direct output to the main or FOH mixer, and the second isolated output to a monitor or recording mixer. The main mic output passes phantom power from the main mixer to the amin mic input for use with condenser microphones. The Phantom power is blocked from passing to the isolated mic output.
Aa a combiner: The SPLITComPro provides one output from 2 microphone inputs. The phase switch can be used to invert the relative phase of the isolated mic input. Applications include dual micing of percussion instruments, choirs, and instrument amplifiers. The Phantom power passes through each output to their respective input, (main to main, isolated to isolated), however the phantom power is blocked from passing between the main and isolated signal paths. Only the audio passes between the main and isolated signal paths (it is present on all inputs and outputs).

CAT: USBDUALPRE PS
04 Jun 12
Project Series 2-channel preamplifier/computer interface with 2 x XLR cables
Review: The USB Dual Pre is a full-featured high quality dual portable preamplifier and computer interface packed into a compact rugged case.
It is designed to work over a wide variety of applications from remote field recording to desktop/studio tracking. Each of the 2 low noise input channels has up to 48 dB of clean gain with signal present and clip LED indicators. Inputs can be either XLR balanced or 1/4" TRS. Each of the 1/4" TRS outputs is buffered low impedance balanced.
The USB Dual Pre is powered via the USB bus. An internal 9V battery, or optional external 12V power supply (or any combination of USB, battery & power supply) can be used depending on application. When running powered by battery alone, you should expect in excess of 50 hours of operation with phantom power off. Battery life will drop to approximately 20 hours (depending on microphone) when phantom powering is engaged (still enough time to get through an average session).
The built-in low noise +48V phantom power supply allows you to power up to 2 microphones as well as the preamplifier when running from any power sources including the USB bus.
For monitoring, a 1/8" TRS mini headphone jack with level and monitor mix controls on the rear allow for latency free local monitoring of the inputs while recording as well as playback monitoring of the USB bus. The monitor mix is also routed to the 1/4" TRS balanced outputs. This lets you use the 1/4" outputs as either preamplifier outputs or as the monitor feed to your powered monitors.
The USB interface is fully compliant with the USB 1.1 specification and uses USB adaptive mode for playback and USB asynchronous mode for record. It will work with the USB audio device drivers built into Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista and Apple OS9.1/OSX computers with native USB support. No special drivers are needed.
