Affordable Tube Preamp Includes Genuine Real-Time Auto-Tune Intonation Processing
Our friends at ART have just introduced their new Auto-Tune Pre, a tube preamp channel with integrated Auto-Tune pitch processing. It's the perfect compact, easy-to-use pitch correction solution for live performance or in the studio.
The Auto-Tune Pre's Auto-Tune section lets you select the key, scale and processing style (Pitch Correction, Hard Auto-Tune Vocal Effect or Soft Auto-Tune Vocal Effect). Twelve note keys allow for the programming of custom scales and the Preset section lets you save five different setups for instant recall.
The ultra low noise discrete microphone preamp front end has an extremely flat and wide frequency response and handles a wide range of input signal levels with a minimum of coloration. A high-quality hand-selected 12AX7A tube circuit adds warmth to the signal path.
On the rear of the unit, an insert jack allows external processing to be added between the Preamp and Auto-Tune section. A ¼-inch Footswitch jack allows remote access to the Bypass and Preset functions.
The Auto-Tune Pre is now available worldwide at ART dealers. If you're in the market for an affordable, great sounding tube preamp with Auto-Tune built in, be sure to check it out.
