A dual-personality preamp with an amazing variety of tones.
Compact, affordable, and capable of a stunningly wide range of tones, the BlueTube DP V2 dual-path mic/instrument preamplifier offers two independent channels, each with an XMAX Class A solid-state preamp, followed in the signal path by a 12AX7 vacuum-tube stage. A Tube Drive control provides a wide range of sounds: When clicked off, you’re using the solid-state preamp for quiet, transparent amplification; when engaged, your signals flow through the tube preamp, and you can achieve anything from gentle warmth to edgy distortion. Equipped with instrument and mic inputs and built tough for serious gigging, the BlueTube DP V2 is a great choice for guitarists, bassists, singer/songwriters, and more.
For more than a decade, DigiMax-series preamp/converters have been relied on in countless recording studios worldwide. The DigiMax DP88 is the latest innovation in the DigiMax line, offering digitally controlled, analog preamps and unmatched digital conversion up to 96 kHz. Like its predecessors, the DigiMax DP88 provides the connectivity, flexibility, and professional sound quality to make it a perfect fit in any studio environment.
We named this channel strip the Studio Channel, and indeed it’s a wonderful studio tool. But it’s great for live performance, too. Featuring tube preamplification, a VCA-based compressor, and three-band EQ, it delivers a huge variety of timbres. Produce luscious, in-your-face vocals, dynamic acoustic piano, and fat, solid bass guitar, not to mention crystal-clear acoustic guitars and cracking snare. Yes, we got the name wrong; we should have called it the Anywhere Channel. But we got the design right.
A versatile preamp with impressive dynamic range and detail.
Compact and affordable, the ever-popular TubePre V2 professional tube preamplifier employs our popular XMAX Class A solid-state preamp, followed in the signal path by a 12AX7 vacuum-tube stage. A dual-servo (no capacitors) gain stage lets you boost the signal to smoking hot levels without significantly increasing noise. Discrete components and high-voltage operation offer dynamic range and detail not found in other single-channel tube preamps in its class. Built tough enough for serious gigging, the TubePre V2 is a great choice for guitars and microphones alike.
