An affordable quality signal chain for the home studio.

The ART Pro Channel and AT2020 Package includes an ART Pro Channel Tube Mic Preamp, and a AT2020 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone.

ART Pro Channel Tube Mic Preamp
The Pro Channel from ART is the latest offering from the world's most popular tube dynamics processing manufacturer. ART engineers have combined the world-renowned Pro MPA, Pro VLA, and Tube EQ into a single product – creating the world's best-sounding and most affordable professional recording channel.

The Pro Channel features many new and exciting design enhancements to ART's pro and home studio staples, including the addition of a tube circuit to the compressor module. The Pro Channel allows you to select between ART's award-winning optical/tube compressor or the coveted tube circuit (a design made popular by the sound of the old broadcast limiters – now costing thousands of dollars). The tube circuit is fast, fat, and a bit aggressive and is guaranteed to become a legend among compressors as has the Pro VLA. The 4-band parametric equalizer has selectable Q for the 2 sweepable mid-bands. As with all design elements of the Pro Channel, these Q options were fine-tuned by some of the industry's top studio and live-sound engineers. Likewise, all new additions were made without compromise to the sound of the original designs (Pro MPA, Pro VLA, Tube EQ), which have become standards in professional studios and FOH rigs around the globe.

AT2020 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
The Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone is the ideal mic for project and home studio applications. With a remarkably low price, cardioid pattern, and specs that put it in the big leagues, it features a custom-engineered, 16mm low-mass diaphragm and smooth 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response. The AT2020's low self-noise is suited to digital recording, plus it has a high 144dB SPL handling. Requires phantom power.
