OVERVIEW

Warm, full-bodied tube sound!

This dual channel tube pre with optical compression and multi-format digital output is designed to provide sound enhancement for any recording application.

2 for one!

The TP-2 offers 2 completely independent preamps with individual realtime controls. Each channel is driven by its own 12AX7 tube. A stereo switch on the front panel allows both preamps to work in tandem when processing a stereo source.

Full-featured mic preamps

Using a specially tuned version of the Valve Force technology so widely acclaimed in the Electribe X series and the TRITON Extreme, the new TP-2 tube-driven preamp imparts a robust warmth and a rich musical character that is ideal for your critical and challenging acoustic sources. Each preamp channel accepts either XLR or 1/4" TRS inputs and switchable phantom power is provided. Equipped with a Hi-Z switch, 26dB pad button, and a variable trim knob, the TP-2 assures the optimal gain setting for any source, from a premium microphone to a direct bass or guitar signal. A pair of faders control the output level, and a low-cut switch and a phase reverse button offer even more flexibility.

Transparent optical compression

By using state-of-the-art optical compression, the TP-2 is able to respond quickly, breathing life and luster into your sound. In addition to enhanced response times, optical compression provides a wide range of dynamic control”without coloring the source material in adverse ways. Compression sensitivity knobs on the front panel are teamed with Fast/Slow release time buttons and audiophile analog VU meters for intuitive realtime control.

Best of both worlds

While the TP-2 works hard in the analog domain to achieve warm, smooth and musical results, its digital characteristics are no less stellar. Analog-to-digital conversion is 24-bit, using 64X oversampling for error-free reproduction. Sampling rates of 44.1, 48, and 96kHz are offered, and the digital output is provided in both S/PDIF optical and coaxial formats. Analog outputs are also provided.

Use it anywhere

While the TP-2 is obviously well suited to enrich your hardware- or software-based digital recordings, it is perfect for a variety of applications. Live, the TP-2 can be used to add warmth to any vocal mic or acoustic instrument. As a mastering tool, the TP-2 provides superior dynamic control. You can even use it as a preamp when preparing audio samples for your keyboard or computer.
