In the long history of PreSonus, they've always put audio quality first and foremost and this is no exception, improving on the already massively popular first TubePRE.
Global Warming for Mics and Instruments
The Tube Pre version 2 has a dual-servo gain stage so you can boost the program signal with no noticeable increase in background noise, while discrete components and high-voltage operation offer dynamic range and detail not found in other single-channel tube preamps in its class. The latest TubePRE offers an even wider palette of sound options, and a much more focused tube saturation, than the original. It has been upgraded to use the popular XMAX Class A solid-state preamp, which is followed in the signal path by a 12AX7 vacuum-tube stage. The Drive saturation control allows you to add the “color” that only a hand-selected 12AX7 vacuum tube can deliver: gentle warmth, total fuzz and everything in between.
The TubePre V2 is more than a mic preamp, though. Thanks to its separate instrument and mic inputs, it also serves as a dynamite direct box (DI) for guitars and basses. And it’s small enough to carry almost anywhere, although you also can screw-mount it to a standard rack tray.
