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.
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 KorgÃƒ?Ã‚Â¢??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.
