Auto-Tune Pre


The Auto-Tune Pre combines an ART tube preamp channel with integrated Antares Auto-TuneĀ® processing in a compact accessible package ideal for studio or stage. Now live artists can easily add high quality Antares pitch processing without the complexity and cost of an external computer and software.

Auto-Tune Pre EFX Section: The Antares Auto-Tune section of the product is designed to have a user interface and functionality that is similar to the Auto-Tune EFX Plug-In. Users can select the Key, Scale and EFX type. Individual notes can be toggled on or off using the key pads for more customization. Edits can be stored in one of five footswitch accessible presets. (Footswitch optional)

The ultra low noise discrete microphone preamp front end has an extremely flat and wide frequency response and handles a wide range of input signal levels with a minimum of coloration. High quality hand selected 12AX7A tube circuit adds warmth to the signal path.

Insert jack allows external processing to be added between the Preamp and Auto-Tune EFX section. The 1/4-inch Footswitch jack on the rear allows remote access to the Bypass and Preset functions.

Optional ART SM1 stand mount securely attaches the Auto-TunePre to any microphone stand for live stage or studio applications is available.
