ART TPS II

ART TPS II

Tube Preamp System

The Tube Preamp System offers a completely new technology, which can be found only in ART microphone preamplifiers - ARTs new V3 (Variable Valve Voicing) Technology.

The ART TPS II mic preamp has continuously variable input impedance and a dynamic range of over 120 dB. The revised V3 presets, as well as instruments and microphone connectors on front and back with an automatic switch can, for example, operate as active DI Box tubes making the TPS even more versatile. The LED meter allows an accurate control of the input level and ARTs improved OPL Limiter protects the devices in the signal chain from unwanted signal peaks.

The ART TPS II Tube Preamp System is a hybrid microphone preamplifier of State-of-the-Art quality. The ART TPS II is a combination of two high-quality, discrete V3 technology preamps. V3 stands for Variable Valve Voicing and offers fantastic presets for each instrument to be recorded, so that all your recordings sound professional. V3 supports you with optimized reference settings, greatly facilitating the beginning of a recording. V3 allows you to select different preamp settings for guitar (electric and acoustic), keyboards, bass, drums, vocals and others. Unique in this class is the ability to control two analog VU meter levels.

Instruments or microphones can be connected to the input jacks on the back or combo jacks on the front.

The mic preamp offers a dynamic range of over 120 dB and accepts signals up to 20 dB. Thanks to the tube stage with their classic warm sound and the specially tailored vocal, guitar, bass and acoustic instrument V3 presets, the ART TPS II can also be perfectly set as a tube DI box. Output Protection Limiter (OPL) prevents overload and limits the signal before distortions can occur.

A Swiss army knife for home recording

31.12.2014
I must say that for home recording this preamp is excellent as it provides one with so many different settings. It is true however that one should not expect a genuine tube sound or pristine mic preamp sound as it is clear that this is a low budget device. That does not mean that it sounds bad. No. The preamps are decent.
The metering is very clear and the build quality is actually surprisingly good for the price. The unit feels very strudy! The knobs have a nice feel to them and feel expensive. It's also good for line-level sources, like synths to add a bit of different flavor to the sound, some gritt.

Tube Pre - I love it BUT...

The L.C.A Studio, UK, 18.06.2013
I love everything about this unit, except one thing... the fact that the controls are mirrored! the Left channel is literally opposite to the right - which is so confusing in the heat of a session! the amount of times I have 'matched' the channels settings only to find that I haven't actually, because it's back to front!

however the sound of this unit is awesome - I have read lots on changing the tubes to a more expensive kind - though I have never felt the need as it is great as is!

Perfect for pumping final mixes through too!

I am very pleased with the built in limiter too - you really can squash the life out of things if you want to.
