The perfect affordable desktop recording solution! With two channels of recording piped into your computer over convenient USB, the ART USB Dual Pre might just be one of the most cost-effective ways to start recording on your computer. A pair of XLR/1/4" combo inputs let you use the USB Dual Pre to plug in a variety of sound sources, and you even get a pair of balanced 1/4" outputs to feed a PA or other audio devices. Portability is no problem, as the USB Dual Pre can be powered by USB bus power, its own internal battery, or by an external 12-volt power supply (sold separately). Getting started recording needn't cost a fortune, as evidenced by the USB Dual Pre from ART!
