A tube preamp is a wonderful thing. You can use it to get
overdriven, tube amp tone from solid state amplifiers or PAs, or to
fatten up the sound of a tube amp that you can't really crank up for
one reason or another.
this is mostly for tim, but i'd be happy to hear from others.
i recently got an ART MP preamp. sweet little device. i got it
to solve a problem i've had with getting decent output from my
audix>samson airline>digitech chain. works great for that, but
i'm intrigued by the notion of using the audix into the preamp
into a PA, for when i'm traveling light.
the MP has a gain control, an output control, a gain range selector,
and an output limiter. i wonder if you could expand on how you'd set
this up, for various purposes, but especially for getting overdriven
sound playing through a PA.
also, when i use this with the igitech, i'm using it between the
digitech and the PA. is this the best way to set it up?
finally, i keep hearing the term "warm up the sound". can someone
spell out just what this means, in terms of the signal? i'm a
software guy, don't know nuthin' 'bout no tubes, ya know?

I'm going to die full of hope.
