The new ART Tube MP OPL™ features ART's OPL™ (Output Protection Limiter), which precisely and accurately controls and maintains the output peak signal. The OPL circuitry is crucial in protecting the next link in a signal chain - such as a hard-disk recording system or a sound card.
The Tube MP OPL features all the functionality of its predecessor, the world's number one Tube Mic Pre, the Tube MP. Whether you're working with a computer, hard-disk, or digital multitrack recorder, the Tube MP OPL's design delivers professional recording studio results at a fraction of the cost of comparable equipment.
The design of the Tube MP OPL allows it to add warmth and fatness to a signal while maintaining exceptionally low-noise and high quality. While its primary application is to be used with a microphone, the Tube MP OPL is an exceptional direct box - impedance matching, amplifying and improving the sound of any instrument plugged into it.
The Tube MP OPL offers superior performance and sound quality to the "on-board" preamps found in today's low-cost mixers and multi-trackers. Professional quality sound combined with professional features like: a 12AX7a Tube, phantom power and Phase Reverse, are what make the Tube MP OPL a great microphone preamp.
The Tube MP OPL can be used in a wide variety of applications including recording, project and home studios, where it's OPL circuit really shines. It also functions as a direct box, with impedance matching and preamplification for line-level sources.
