The Tube MP Studio V3 delivers warmth and fatness to any audio source while maintaining an exceptionally low-noise signal path. While its primary function is as a microphone preamp with +48V phantom power, variable gain and phase reverse switching, the Tube MP is also an exceptionally versatile tube driven direct box for any instrument source.

The Tube MP Studio V3 uses ART's proven V3 (Variable Valve Voicing) Technology to instantly contour the tone to any source. V3 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. Additionally, the Tube MP Studio V3 employs OPL (Output Protection Limiting) technology to protect the next component in your signal path from clipping and overloads.

The Tube MP Studio V3 offers exceptional sound quality and superior performance to that 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.

I bought this for the voicing features and to warm up my bass and acoustic guitar. When I first took it out of the box I noticed the headphone jack was super loose and the nut was barely on the jack. Why would it leave the factory like this ? I used it a few times but soon discovered it was very noisy with lots of pops and crackling going on. I also discovered the VU meter would often stick and stay stuck in the red zone when peaking.. I don't understand why they did put an on/off switch in this unit. I'm returning mine and looking for another unit.

This preamp has a ton of gain which really brings your microphone to life. It's a single channel preamp but you can't beat the price.

Perfect for the amateur recording artist who doesn't have a large budget. I run all my microphones through it and for my bass as well.

I bought this to experiment with tube overdrive, harmonics, tube warmth on synth sources and hard electronic drums from my MPC. There are tons of sweet spots! ..but the unit requires patience and careful exploration.. also a keen eye on levels because it peaks hard sometimes on the non-OPL circuits. This unit needs to warm up 20 minutes at least before it sounds good. Anyone with negative opinions may have tried it cold. Btw there is a point on each circuit where the sound splinters into nasty fragments, but anything up to that sounds rich. Each circuit has a different personality. Recommended based on the above observations, and of course the price. Cheers to L&M Bloor staff.

This PreAmp is perfect. 100% improvement with just recording a direct guitar, the bottom end has middle, and the guitar is very responsive.
I would recommend this to anyone recording Guitars/Basses. I'm inspired.
Five Stars
