    The all-in-one input solution for analog or digital recording.

    The ART VoiceChannel is the answer to your recording and computer audio interface needs. Built to provide the ideal all-in-one input solution for analog or digital recording, the ART VoiceChannel is a true second-generation discrete Class-A microphone preamp capable of providing clean quiet gain while maintaining incredible transparency. An integrated fully variable powerful dynamics processor subtly controls transients and noise of the most demanding sources while the VoiceChannel's semi-parametric EQ offers wide tunability. For added versatility the EQ can be patched before or after the dynamics processor while separate insertion jacks allow you quick quiet in-line connectivity to external signal processing gear immediately after the mic pre-amp, before the EQ and dynamics processor in the signal path. Another insert patch point exists just before the A/D converters. Choose between a wide range of outputs including balanced analog output, 44.1 KHz to 192 KHz AES/EBU, S/PDIF, ADAT and USB. Both analog and digital meters provide a detailed indication of audio levels.

    Comments about ART Voice Channel Tube Mic Preamp:

    After using pro channel I switched to voice channel, great, compressor, deesser,equalizer and a great optical feature, double outputs one preamp output and another "clear" analog output. USB support (haven't used it yet)might be something new in this field. What they're charging for this thing is a great price. Probably the best preamp in this price range

    Very Stable, Very Musical

    Comments about ART Voice Channel Tube Mic Preamp:

    I'm a professional mixing engineer. I just recently recieved my new voice channel and the I/O features on this thing are amazing for the price. The sound is very clean, very defined. I also love the post /pre EQ option, It's very musical sounding. Just a little thing I kinda hoped that the eq gain knobs would have the "clicking" feature that the input and output knobs have but the lines that are drawn on the black faceplate are pretty accurate so no big problem there. Overall this is a very stable, very musical unit, extremly condusive to the tracking process. I use an Avantone CV-12 mic with this pre and the marrige with these two are Perfect~
