BlueTube V2
Baton Rouge, Louisiana, March 2012...  
PreSonus is now shipping new and improved versions of two of its classic tube preamplifiers: the BlueTube DP V2 and TubePre V2.

Enjoy solid-state clarity or tube warmth with the BlueTube DP V2 dual-path  mic/instrument preamp. The solid-state path feeds PreSonus' Class A XMAX™ mic preamplifier with 80 dB of  variable gain-an upgrade from the original BlueTube DP. The tube path features a 12AX7 tube that operates on voltages double that of other  preamplifiers in its class, producing lots of headroom and big tone. The Tube Drive enables you to achieve anything from gentle warmth to edgy distortion. You also get 48V phantom power, an 80 Hz  high-pass filter, -20 dB pad, and polarity reverse.

With two combo mic/instrument inputs, the half-rackspace BlueTube DP V2 is a great choice for guitars as well as vocals. Singer-songwriters can run their vocal through one  channel and their guitar through the other, feeding both to the P.A.-no  guitar amp needed. It also serves as a DI box, thanks to balanced XLR and unbalanced ¼" outputs, and is housed in a new, rugged, 1/2U case. Try the BlueTube DP V2 as a front end for a DAW, too.  The BlueTube DP V2 is available immediately; MAP/street price is  expected to be $229.95.

TubePre V2
The  single-channel TubePre V2 tube preamp is an affordable way to add high  quality tube warmth and character to your sound. This new version provides an even wider palette of sound  options, and a much more focused tube saturation, than the original  TubePre. It has been upgraded to employ PreSonus' popular XMAX Class A  solid-state preamp, which is followed in the signal path by a 12AX7 vacuum-tube stage with Tube Drive tube-saturation  control.

Housed  in a rugged, 1/3-rackspace case, the TubePre V2 rear panel sports  separate unbalanced, ¼" instrument and balanced, XLR mic inputs and unbalanced ¼" and balanced XLR line  outputs. The front panel offers controls for gain, 48V phantom power, 80  Hz high-pass filter, and polarity-reverse, as well as a mic/instrument  input switch. A lighted VU meter and a clip LED help you keep an eye on your levels. The TubePre V2 is available  immediately; MAP/street price is expected to be $129.95.
