Tube warmth for your audio interface

If you’re a singer or instrumentalist working in a small project studio with a standard interface or USB mixer, and you are looking to enhance your instrument of choice, ART’s Tube MP Studio V3, with it’s in-built 12AX7a valve, could be just the right addition to give your sound that extra something.

The Studio V3 has a variety of presets utilising the warmth of the 12AX7a valve and some careful EQing, and these presets were created and fine-tuned by some of the industry’s top studio and live-sound engineers and allow instant access to a multitude of preamp settings designed for guitars (electric and acoustic), keyboards, bass guitars, drums, vocals and more.

As Paul White from Sound On Sound magazine said in his review: “I think the Tube MP Studio V3 would make a great companion for a digital desktop studio, where its high output drive capability and tonal versatility should help the user inject a little welcome character into the recorded sound.

The Tube MP Studio V3 offers exceptional sound quality and superior performance to what’s typically found in “on-board” preamps found in today’s low-cost mixers, multi-track recorders and audio cards making it an ideal tone-shaping tool for any application.

The Tube MP range also includes the Tube MP/C, with a built-in opto-compressor/limiter, the USB Tube MP, which can function as a standalone interface, and the ‘original’ Tube MP, with +20dB gain switch, phantom power, phase reverse and output protection limiter (OPL).
