NAMM: Korg Displays TP-2 and TPB-2 Tube Preamps
Good things come in small packages

Press release from Korg January 20, 2005 — Korg’s Dual Tube Preamp with Optical Compression and Digital Output (TP-2) provides sound enhancement for any recording application. Similarly, the Dual Tube Preamp Board with Optical Compression (TPB-2) offers the same functionality in a user-installable option to enhance Korg’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. 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) The Korg TP-2 and TPB-2 are currently available with US MSRPs of $699 and $579, respectively.
