  1. Changing Tubes - Art Tubeopto 8

Several of the threads I’ve found note that you need to remove the tube snubbers before you pull out the tubes and...

    ART Pro VLA II Compressor - Any good?

    I have been thinking about adding an OB compressor to the rack recently, and, being on a budget I have come across the ART Pro VLA II. This thing seems to get a good wrap for the price, and general concensus in regards to feedback is they sound better when the standard stock chinese-made tubes...

    Tubes failing in ART Tube Opto 8

    Not sure if this counts as pro gear, but it seemed the most appropriate forum. I've had this unit for some time now, as my second 8 channels in my setup. Over the last 18 months, I've had all the tubes go bad three times. I chalked the first two times to having removed it from the rack and...

    Hi guys, So I'm not new to music, but pretty new to home recording. I got myself an ART Pro Dual Pre USB Interface so that I could record vocals and guitar at the same time, but as different tracks. But when I hook it up to my laptop and record using the Edison recorder in Fruity Loops 8 it...
  6. ART Tube MP

    Hello, I'm just getting into the very basics of recording and purchased myself an XM8500 mic. My uncle had a preamp/mixer that I was going to use, but for some reason the mic doesn't work with it. I've tried everything and decided that I would just get a new preamp instead. I'm on a very tight...

  8. ART Pro Channel - No Audio Turns on

    I purhcased a ART Pro Channel a couple of years ago off ebay. Worked for a little bit, but now it stopped working. I'm trying to figure out if it's a tube. The unit powers on, I hear slight audio distortion on the output. Is there something you can do to test the tubes or is it something...

    Art Tube MP Problem

    The interface is making a significant amount of noise, even with all settings down. It's a bit of white noise laced with a light high pitched buzzing. Possibly electrical? Any suggestions?

    PreSonus XMAX vs Art ProChannel vs. EHX 12AY7 pre-amps.

    I'm contemplating my next buy. It will be a preamp. I'm looking for "that tube sound". I need richness and clarity, etc. This preamp is primarily for vocals. If it does vocals well, then I'm happy. I can always try it out on other things. That being said, I'm torn between these two...

  12. Alesis iO2 Interface and ART Tube Preamp - Do i still need a better soundcard?

    I read a great reply to a different post about upgrading to an external soundcard and I wondered if this would apply to me also if I am only recording vocals over instrumental tracks and my signal chain is mic>preamp>interface>PC USB input. The songs will be mixed by the producer, I'm only...

    ART Pro MPAII vs Digital version

    Are they the same, digital section notwithstanding? I have a PreSonus Firepod - is it worth the extra money to get the digital section in the Art digital, or are my Firepod converter at the same level? Thanks! -Johntodd

    Mic Pre - ART MPA Gold question

    OK, I know ART isn't the best mic pre, but I have an MPA Gold and I am a little confused about the gain staging. I am hoping that there is someone out there that may have one that can help. The MPA Gold has a "tube warmth" meter and a VU meter that measures output. I am not used to working...
