The Art Tube MP Studio V3 for Home Studio Use - Reviews Art Tube MP Studio V3

Value For Money : Correct Audience: Anyone
After having recorded several songs with the Art Tube MP Studio V3, I must say it is a pretty good little piece of equipment. It's audio limiting system works best when recording semi-hot signals. However, there are a couple of reasons I didn't give it 5 stars:

- The paint on the letters is prone to come off (slightly, only superficial, but still)

- It doesn't have a built-in on/off switch

The way it limits the signal is similar to an ultra-compressor, so it is important to be careful not to record too hot (otherwise the dynamics can be affected in a non desired manner). Still, it serves the purpose of a single channel (MONO) pre-amplifier very well. ;)

I will probably be making a video review and uploading it into my blog.
