A preamp that gives you multiple options for recording how and where you want.
The ART USB Dual Pre is ideal for laptop-based audio production. It's powered by an internal 9-volt battery, your computer's USB bus, or an optional 12-volt DC adapter. The rugged aluminum chassis with rubber sides handles road abuse.
The ART USB Dual Pre has two low-noise input channels with XLR balanced and 1/4" TRS inputs, each with up to 48dB of clean gain and clip LED indicators. With it's low noise 48-volt phantom power supply you can power up to two mics as well as the preamp when running off any of the power sources. The 1/4" outputs are buffered and low impedance balanced for use as either preamplifier outputs or feeds for powered monitors. A rear 1/8" TRS mini headphone jack with level and monitor controls provides latency-free monitoring of inputs during recording or the USB bus during playback. Fully compliant with the USB 1.1 specification, this compact device uses USB adaptive mode for playback and USB asynchronous mode for recording.
Power supply not included.
The Dual Pre can run on battery and USB bus power, separately or simultaneously. However, if you prefer to use an external adapter, please see #219000
