The Art Tube MP/C is a Professional Tube PreAmplifier and Opto Compressor Limiter and multi-purpose tool for audio engineering and recording. Two independent circuits featuring a tube-based analog preamplifier and a VCA-less compressor with optical gain reduction control are housed in one, convenient desk-top chassis.
Used as a mic&line preamp or as a DI (direct) box, the Tube MP&C is designed to work seamlessly with any recording, sound reinforcement, or electronic instrument setup. A R T’s Tube MP&C circuitry is a hybrid design utilizing the latest, most advanced, solid-state and tube technology.The preamplifier's active balanced solid-state input provides extremely low noise and excellent common-mode rejection.
