ART USB Dual Pre Project Series


The ART USB Dual Pre is a dual input preamp and USB audio interface. The USB Dual Pre is rugged and ideal for location recording - being battery powered, along with project studio recording. Each preamp offers 48dB of gain over combi XLR/TRS connectors, and there are LED lights indicating signal present and clipping. On the back plate, you have access to the 9v battery compartment, headphones with a master level, and two TRS outputs. The Dual Pre USB offers a Mix dial to blend the input signal and playback from your computer.


    • ART USB Dual Pre Features:

      The USB Dual Pre is powered via the USB bus. An internal 9 Volt battery, or optional external 12V power supply (or any combination of USB, battery & power supply) can be used depending on application. When running powered by battery alone, you should expect in excess of 50 hours of operation with phantom power off. Battery life will drop to approximately 20 hours (depending on microphone) when phantom powering is engaged (still enough time to get through an average session).

      The built-in low noise +48 Volt phantom power supply allows you to power up to 2 microphones as well as the preamplifier when running from any power sources including the USB bus.

      For monitoring, an 1/8-inch TRS mini headphone jack with level and monitor mix controls on the rear allow for latency free local monitoring of the inputs while recording as well as playback monitoring of the USB bus. The monitor mix is also routed to the 1/4-inch TRS balanced outputs. This lets you use the 1/4-inch outputs as either preamplifier outputs or as the monitor feed to your powered monitors.
