Description

Enjoy solid-state clarity or tube warmth with the BlueTube DP dual-path mic/instrument preamp, which features both PreSonus' classic Class A XMAXTM solid-state mic preamplifier and a high-output,12AX7 tube preamp that operates on voltages double that of other preamps in its class, providing lots of headroom and big tone. A Tube Drive control produces anything from gentle warmth to edgy distortion. With two combo mic/instrument inputs, the half-rackspace BlueTube DP is a great choice for guitars and basses as well as vocals.

Features:

  • Dual path, with both 12AX7 vacuum tube and solid-state gain stages
  • Combo mic/instrument inputs with Class A XMAXTM mic preamplifiers
  • XLR and 1/4" line outputs
  • Tube Drive tube-saturation control
  • 48V phantom power
  • 80 Hz high-pass filter
  • -20 dB pad
  • Polarity-reverse switch
  • Illuminated analog VU input-level meter
  • Compact 1/2U rack-mount chassis

PreSonus' popular Class A XMAX preamps are widely lauded for their clarity and transparency. Tube preamps are beloved for their warm, smooth sound. With the Blue Tube DP V2 dual-path mic/instrument preamp, you get both types of high-quality sound in one unit. Now PreSonus has improved on the classic unit with the BlueTube DP V2. The solid-state path now feeds PreSonus' top-of-the-line Class A XMAXmic preamplifier with 80 dB of variable gain-an upgrade from the original BlueTube DP's solid-state stage.

The tube path features a 12AX7 tube that operates on voltages double that of other preamplifiers in its class, producing lots of headroom and big tone. BlueTube DP V2 offers lower noise, more high-end clarity, and an even smoother tube sound than its predecessor.

The Essential Features-and More!
You still get all the secondary features you expect in a professional-grade preamp: 48V phantom power, an 80 Hz high-pass filter, -20 dB pad to control hot input signals, and a polarity-reverse switch. Each channel has an illuminated VU meter so you can visually monitor your input levels.

A Tube Drive control provides a wide range of sounds: when it's clicked off, you're using the solid-state preamp for quiet, transparent amplification; when it's engaged, your signals flow through the tube preamp, and you can achieve anything from gentle warmth to edgy distortion.

Versatile and Affordable
With two combo mic/instrument inputs, the half-rackspace BlueTube DP V2 is a great choice for guitars and basses as well as for vocals. Singer-songwriters can run their vocal through one channel and their guitar through the other, feeding both to the P.A.-no guitar amp needed. It also serves as a DI box, thanks to balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/4" outputs, and is housed in a new, rugged, 1/2U case.

Try the BlueTube DP V2 as a front end for a DAW, too; sure, your recording interface might already include preamps, but few of them give you both tube and solid-state operation.

PreSonus has also updated the preamp's compact, rugged enclosure; it has more rounded edges and looks modern and sleek. It can be used as a desktop unit or it can be screw-mounted to a standard rack tray.

So get the new and improved version of the most versatile, best-sounding mic/instrument preamplifier in its price range: the BlueTube DP V2.
