Get incredible sound no matter what you're running through this preamplifier. 

Use the Studio Channel to get rich acoustic guitars, cracking snare, deep bass, and warm, full vocals.  The tube is what gives this preamplifier its great sound and when paired with the high quality XLR input as well as the 1/4" line input, you'll find amazing tone all day long.  This preamplifier has 48V Phantom Power allowing you to match this tube preamp with a studio grade condenser microphone for ultimate tone quality.  You'll also find that you have an 80Hz high pass filter as your disposal giving you one more tool to get the sound you're looking for.  Built into this unit is a compressor with controls for the following: Thresh, Ratio, Attack, Release, and Gain.  There is also a Parametric Equalizer so you can really grab ahold of your sound and tweak into exactly what you're looking for.  You can use the bypass buttons for the compressor and the EQ if you want to just go straight from the Tube Preamp into your signal receiver.  To help keep things organized, PreSonus made this tube preamplifier to be completely rack mountable so it's incredibly easy to add this to your system lineup without creating a mess.  Amazing tone for an amazing price!
