    An affordable and easy-to-use preamp that sounds great and is computer savvy.

    With the ART Tube MP Project Series USB Preamp and Audio Interface you get professional results from a single-channel mic, instrument, and line level preamp with limiter. This ART professional microphone and instrument tube preamplifier can serve as a simple front-end for your computer DAW or standalone recorder.

    ART updated every aspect of the Tube MP design inside and out while maintaining the compact form, reliability, and cost-effectiveness while adding a USB output. It comes in an all-aluminum, stackable chassis with an external power supply to keep AC line noise and hum back at the wall. The front end features an ultra low-noise, discrete microphone preamp with an extremely flat and wide frequency response to give you a very clean and neutral sound with a wide variety of signal levels. The high-impedance instrument input is optimized for guitar pickups, and both the XLR and 1/4" input levels are monitored via a precision LED level meter. A high-quality 12AX7A tube inside adds warmth and musical dynamics.

    The input Gain knob and +20dB Gain switch maximize the dynamic range of the input and help control how hard you drive the tube. 48V phantom power and switchable input impedance help you get the most out of studio-grade microphones like ribbon and professional condenser mics. Phantom power is current limited to prevent damage to sensitive microphones. The selectable high-pass filter fights low-frequency rumble and wind noise with a Bessel filter design set at a 40Hz. The FET limiter has fast attack and musical release times to limit the maximum audio output level to prevent overloading while still maintaining a clear, uncompressed sound. It also has a Phase Invert switch, a post-limiter output control for output level matching, and high-output section for signal drive capability. The USB (Universal Serial Bus) port allows quick and easy connection to your computer.

    a must-have piece of gear

    By That Guy From That Place

    from Pingree Grove

    Mark up another win for ART, this thing is fantastic - it eliminates line noise and records to both left and right channels (helpful if you plug into your sound card to record), has a great limiter feature, phantom power, 20dB boost and more. The Gain control in particular was designed very smartly - it functions purely as gain, not as input volume. If you're doing voice overs, you can turn the gain control all the way down to avoid overdriving your voice. There was some confusion setting this up initially: each time you plug in the USB the unit will reset your computer's audio input AND output settings to the USB codec. Hint: set the USB as the input only, and always keep it plugged in so you don't have to re-adjust the settings each time.Very highly recommended!

    A good buy

    By chimaira08

    I bought this because I wanted to improve my quality of my guitar and vocals in recording. I decided to get the one with the USB so that it could replace my Line 6 Toneport as the interface I use. I've had it for about 4 months now, haven't had any problems with it, and am very pleased with how easy it is to use and how much it has improved my sound.

    Wow

    By this thing rocks

    from Redwood City, CA

    I bought this partly cause i needed something to record with, and partly cause i thought it would improve my sound since my little fender fm 25 sounds pretty bad. I've tried recording with it once or twice, and it works for that, but wow it improved my guitar sound. Since i can drive it without blasting our neighbors into mexico. If you just want it for the guitar sound, get the one without the usb.

    Must have for a small studio

    By ScridsDidIt

    from Gastonia, NC

    In regards to latency and noise reduction, it's about a billion times better than plugging into your soundcard. I love that it has the USB input. I configured Windows so that it is my sound input, but I still use my soundcard for sound output. No hardware conflicts or problems with the unit. The added features are decent, but nothing amazing. Overall, this unit is worth every dollar of the cost; and if you're using your soundcard to record, you no longer have an excuse.

    ART Tube MP Project Series USB Audio Interface

    By rodneyjankins

    from eugene oregon

    I bought this a few months back. mostly because without one everything I recorded was delayed. And I must say, that this gets the job done. the features are not too great. but, I would say, it's probably worth picking up. but thats just me.

    Very Good little preamp

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I've had this preamp for about 9 months and I've had no problems or issues with it. I've used an MXL condenser and a couple of dynamics and I've had consistently good results from it. I only use the USB output to computer and it has served my purposes very well.

    I bought the Tube MP mostly to power my condensor microphone, but the amplifier, and the other features improves my recording.
