OVERVIEW

A super-versatile setup ideal for home and project studios.

The PreSonus BlueTube DP Stereo Preamp is among the most versatile two-channel mic and instrument preamps in its class. Its Dual Path technology lets you choose between two preamp stages: a transparent solid-state or warm tube preamp. Each gain stage of the BlueTube DP is pure Class A with high headroom.

Each channel of the BlueTube DP includes a -20dB pad, polarity reverse, 80Hz filter, and +48v phantom power. On the front panel you'll find controls for solid state gain and switchable on/off tube drive. When the tube drive is off, the tube preamplifier stage is bypassed delivering ultra-quiet and transparent solid state preamplification.

Large analog VU meters provide precise visual monitoring. Dual Neutrik combo jacks for microphones or instruments provides quality I/O and make the BlueTube DP great as a DI for electric bass and guitar.

The Audio-Technica AT2041SP Microphone Pack gives you 2 studio condenser microphones for use in your recordings. They deliver versatility and durability with remarkable specs and superior build. The critically acclaimed AT2020 is a side-address mic for vocal and instrument applications, while the AT2021 small-diaphragm condenser microphone is a natural for solo acoustic instruments and vocal and drum overheads. Each mic offers a wide dynamic range and handles high SPLs with ease. An innovative pivoting stand mount is included along with a microphone clip and protective pouches.

Using proven Audio-Technica technology, 20 Series microphones deliver great performance for digital and analog recording at a low price. Audio-Technica's stringent quality/consistency standards set both microphones apart from other mics in their class.

Not Very Good

Comments about PreSonus Blue Tube DP & AT2041SP Dual Mic & Preamp Package:

When I saw a tube preamp for under $1000 I was willing to gamble. However, it added none of the characteristics of a tube pre amp. I even called in one of my 30+ years pro recording studio friends, and after much tweaking, we found that things just sounded better without it. The only thing I can compare it to is a guitar distortion pedal that is running on low batteries.When plugging in an acoustic guitar directly, I was able to get some favorable tones, but that was just from the added power of the preamp. This unit actually became the weakest link in my signal chain.I find that the plug-ins for Logic Studio 9 are much better than this unit. I really like PreSonus stuff, and really wanted to like this unit, but it's performance was incredibly weak.
