SNAMM04: Tube Preamps From Korg Feature Optical Compression
The TP-2

The new Dual Tube Preamp with Optical Compression and Digital Output (TP-2) provides sound enhancement for any recording application. We all know how valves can warm up the sound of a recorded signal and add the optical compression and you have a pretty useful front end for your DAW system. Features include:
  • Dual, classic-style, analog VU meters
  • Valve Force circuitry featuring two 12AX7 tubes
  • Two independent channels that can be linked for recording stereo sources
  • Independent phantom power, pad, phase, low cut and Hi-Z switches for each channel
  • Balanced XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs and outputs
  • Coaxial and optical digital outputs (TP-2 only) Similarly, the new Dual Tube Preamp Board with Optical Compression (TPB-2) offers the same functionality in a user-installable option to enhance KorgÃ?¢??s D32XD and D16XD recorders. Both incorporate a specially tuned version of Korg's Valve Force vacuum tube circuitry (made popular in the TRITON Extreme and ELECTRIBE SX/MX) to add analog tube warmth and richness, as well as high-quality optical compressors that offer a quick response and transparent character. The Korg TP-2 and TPB-2 will be available in late summer, with pricing to be announced shortly.
