Korg Introduces TP-2 and TPB-2 Tube Preamps

Korg’s new Dual Tube Preamp with Optical Compression and Digital Output (TP-2) provides sound enhancement for any recording application.

Similarly, the new Dual Tube Preamp Board with Optical Compression (TPB-2) offers the same functionality in a user-installable option to enhance Korg’s D32XD and D16XD recorders. Both incorporate a specially tuned version of Korg’s 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.

Features include:

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 dgital outputs (TP-2 only)
