    The Art Tube MP Studio V3 for Home Studio Use

    Art Tube MP Studio V3Published on 04/18/17 at 21:22
    After having recorded several songs with the Art Tube MP Studio V3, I must say it is a pretty good little piece of equipment. It's audio limiting system works best when recording semi-hot signals. However, there are a couple of reasons I didn't give it 5 stars:

    - The paint on the letters is prone to come off (slightly, only superficial, but still)

    - It doesn't have a built-in on/off switch

    The way it limits the signal is similar to an ultra-compressor, so it is important to be careful not to record too hot (otherwise the dynamics can be affected in a non desired manner). Still, it serves the purpose of a single channel (MONO) pre-amplifier very well. ;)

    One of the best preamps cheap.

    Preamp format "DI", a lamp Chinese 12AX7 format different voicings controlled by a rotary switch, an input output (XLR or jack size for each of them), an input, an output, phantom power, a push-off phase, a 20db boost and roll youth! On paper it does in all cases. But the power supply 9 v can be scary, because we know that the lamp will not work as it would on GoldMike example.

    UTILIZATION

    We find quickly what you will, between limitation and simple préaplification. Chinese original lamp is rotten (along a preamp 50balles should not expect a mullard), I have changed to a lamp OUR sorted, and it's going much better since.

    SOUND QUALITY

    With my new lamp, it provides a perfect warm color to record low. To be brief, if you have a class A transistor preamp to your sound card, it will be a perfect companion for the home studio.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year or less, I like its small size, the DI side, its price after it's not worth a real tube preamp but it's a small effect, for once the lamp is not just marketing.

    Tube preamp
    in and out jack + XLR in and out => everything is

    Good for a first home studio

    UTILIZATION

    I plugged my bass directly into the preamp, the output of the XLR preamp in my sound card (M-audio fast track), and the output jack preamp into the input of my amp.

    The sound was better than directly connecting the bass to the sound card.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The preamp fulfilled its role, which is for me to reduce my bass

    OVERALL OPINION

    My first reaction was to open (bye bye warranty!) To change the original lamp for the mesa boogie.
    Well, the lamp replacement is not practical, sensitive and a sheet re-read both sides of the case. Suffice to say that i…

    Well, the lamp replacement is not practical, sensitive and a sheet re-read both sides of the case. Suffice to say that in less than two years, the water was unsoldered. Here again, for strengthening is poverty.
    I ended up giving it to a friend who had detected a fault other than the water, and I use the DI output of my amp head!

    Bon bah I buy in the end!
    * So it's a good little prampli lamp (12AX7) that can run both mics for mastering.
    * See listing

    UTILIZATION

    It's ultra easy to use, there's no 15 000 config!
    A small BMOL at the explanation of the Variable Valve Voicing ... the explanations are quite large and it is unclear what exactly each position change ... it is necessary to test!
    Otherwise a really gives a nice warmth to the sound (I use a Fostex VF160).

    SOUND QUALITY

    I havent done enough testing so ... but it brings a color depending on how Variable Valve Voicing chosen.

    I love all these Features and the sound but there are positions that do not change much!
    I pay € 175 on Pigalle, the ratio quality / price is good enough, Art did a great stuff!

    SOUND QUALITY

    I find it fairly neutral. In my use (electric guitar), I find it leaves a little as it sends prs (with just the pramplification). The Difference diffrent positions show quite small, some are just saturate the previously well an rgl.
    I am not as the creature did what I bought it pre-amplifies my guitar. But those looking to possibly variations in sound thanks to the selector will no doubt due, unless it is DIFFERENT on other types of sources.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had today, and I do not regret having bought. But as I have no other exprience on this type of product, I can not say whether it is better or worse than another, or if the price is justified.
    Me anyway, for now I like it well this little gadget

    Pramp lamp
    Connectors 1 / 4 and XLR input and output

    UTILIZATION

    Using simple trs

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound is bad trs
    Ds we rotate the output gain, there is background noise trsgnant accentuates the buzz.
    The more you increase lce output gain, the more background noise increases.
    Impossible to remove, thus unusable.
    The lamp of my hardware is damaged? or in the case gnral?

    OVERALL OPINION

    I Amneris at my dealer to get a refund.
    I would never again buy stuff like this not chr!

    The manufacturer ensures that it does not have a problem sagit of SERIES but the lamp is too fragile to be transported by mail?
    Finally today I have a Samson C Valve (25 more) but it works well trs!

    Microphone / instrument preamps with 12AX7 tube. So there is a classification error on Audiofanzine it is in the "transistor preamps" instead of "tube preamp".
    there you need where you need it, may be missing a switch, have to unplug to stop it. Also a well-designed box with foam for transport would be welcome, even as an option, because everyone does not buy it to travel with, I think of homestudiotistes who will surely use sedentary.

    UTILIZATION

    Could not be more simple, jack or XLR input, output idem, input level, output level, and a potentiometer to "character" offering a number of screening depending on the type of voice or instrument preamplifier.

    SOUND QUALITY

    For me it's perfect, I bought it for my guitar directly into live console, so do not use amp. I am a jazz guitarist and uses his very direct, I sought the grain typical of the lamp that gives a very unique attack to a jazz guitar sound, and warmth to the sound of all: desired result obtained. I occasionally try for the double bass and trumpet, other intruments of my current trio.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I am overwhelmed by my pre-amp that provides its exactly what it needs, nothing more nor less, it is very transparent and does not color the original sound, it is clear we are dealing with sound equipment pro, this is not for amateurs effects, I think of the guitarist who would be a competitor in this product to a particular pedal lamp: it is not the case at all, this is treatment Acoustic sound level, not its color or transformation.

    I therefore strongly recommend it to jazz guitarist like me, I even tried from my guitar and my guitar amp, it also brings a lot in this configuration, I try for the double bass and trumpet in my trio, some it will bring a lot too.

    I only takes 8 simply the absence of switch, and the impossibility of having a case / box worthy of the name, because we know that the lamps are fragile.

    I hope to use does not encounter the problems mentioned in other reviews.
