Korg Intros New Dual Tube PreampComes as standalone or as installable board for D32XD and D16XD recorders (January 25, 2005)
Korgs 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 Korgs D32XD and D16XD recorders.
Both incorporate a specially tuned version of Korgs 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.
? 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.
