ART Tube MP/C Mic Preamp & Compressor
Manufacturer: Applied Research & Technology
Product type: Microphone preamps & interfaces
Cat no: TUBE MP/C
Tube preamp and optical compressor, can be used as a mic/line preamp or as a DI (direct) box
The Tube MP/C (PreAmplifier/Compressor) is a multi-purpose tool for audio engineering and recording. 2 x independent circuits featuring a tube-based analog preamplifier and a VCA-less compressor with optical gain reduction control are housed in one, convenient desk-top chassis. Used as a mic/line preamp or as a DI (direct) box, the Tube MP/C is designed to work seamlessly with any recording, sound-reinforcement, or electronic instrument setup. ART's Tube MP/C circuitry is a hybrid design utilizing the latest, most advanced, solid-state and tube technology.
The preamplifier's active balanced solid-state input provides extremely low noise and excellent common mode rejection. The 14" high impedance input prevents loading of any connected device making the Tube MP/C perfect for DI or line level applications. The preamplifier's second stage 12AX7a tube runs on a regulated DC voltage providing an additional 20 dB of gain.
The compression circuit features a VCA-less design and utilizes optical electronics (Vactrol) coupled with a 12AX7a vacuum tube gain stage for superior musical performance.
