bernard 71's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" satisfied, but I know of no other mic preamps"

Studio Projects VTB1
preamp XLR input and output a single input, the dosage of light effect which adds heat to the voice


very easy to use with an insert jack and more


I am satisfied but I do not know the competition so difficult to give an objective opinion


this is my first, I guess in this price range, it should be hard to beat. it must have to really take the plunge for something better really like everything else besides, more must follow the entire chain audio speaker amp mixer micro effects etc ....

Studio Projects VTB1
Studio Projects; VTB-1


Regarding its use, it is fairly Min for me!
But I'm good use by connecting a guitar to travel!

The entrance to the only, can be used online as well and is why, even though I get sound output from laptop, to use a piece of training that I had copied / export to wav from Cubase!

The "Tube" is almost transparent, I must say, I had some surprise at first, straining his ears, believing that nothing is passed, but it was still there, very sweet and not aggressive to the max at all!
I think, on this point, by changing the lamp (not had the time to do it myself, since very little use) the sound of the tube must therefore be better!


The outputs are doubled back, allowing use relatively large; occasionally connected to a headphone amp (line out, jack, stereo> mono), itself connected to the input of an amp stereo but which also passes through a tape (audio cassette, for those that remember many years) and it works great!

The XLR output is powerful enough, even translated from an XLR / Jack and me, with good cables, they must redefine and otherwise enter the class really mean small pre amps "nomadic" (to use with exaggerations and therefore without moderation!)

Tested with a microphone as in the entry for this purpose (to the rear of the case), coupled with the tube, it is still as sweet without the bludgeoning his voice!

In my ear, the circuit is fairly transparent to all floors (except the tube softens all), then, once the gain is added to the entry, not just breath actually hinder that three third of its stroke (the knobs are notched and it remains a luxury, since almost used today, like this, have known immediately have far can go without saturating the signal, contrary to the non-serrated knobs, them leaving you in the position to find the right place What good had set the day before)!


He'd called in DI Studio Projects that nobody would have seen the difference!

PS: I should have tested soon with a micro recovery from an amp, but I would not have the time now, since already sold!

ExomRecords's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Well"

Studio Projects VTB1
What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)

transistor / lamp

What are the effects, or types of effects available?

Gain input, tube blender, output,

What is the connection?

JACK + INSERT (good)

Is it a rack or rack-mount model?



The general configuration is simple?

Simpler, you die.


The sound of your instruments or your microphone is correctly reproduced? The preamp makes it clear or does it stain?

some warmth and light brings color, pretty good but it's not a summit audio either, but really not bad, no breath.


for a week I use it, not yet experienced enough lamp

Did you tried many other models before buying it?

no, my first preamp outside the studio.

What is so special that you love the most, least?

sound, price, size

How would you rate the quality / price?


With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes, and even if I had a model, because I like to have more product

Ayikoe's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Studio Projects VTB1
Prampli mono lights

Between a jack, an XLR input, high-pass filter, 24 V
A flight of a gain for the lamp and output volume, it's easy friends
Analog amplifier circuit well on pure Class A

fits in a shoebox

's can be rack, um, I sai srien, I' ia never noticed this, I dplace home tt time ...


Config ultra simple, it was possbile to cut the effect of the lamp and not entirely bnficier amplifier circuit as a class as a simple case of direct effectiveness of bluffing for the bass out a sound and oddly prcis that almost never saturates even if we play slap without change settings.

Works well on vocals with the lamp that adds the necessary heat quil

Ditto for acoustic guitars


Way for electric guitars and a bad point for between mono
limiting the uses, but hey, that price ....


I use it for 6 months

satisfied given the quality rapprt price (300 euros)
