A.R.T. Multi-Effects Processors

Updated on February 17, 2013

A.R.T. Applied Research and Technology

Applied Research and Technology began producing professional audio signal processing equipment in 1984.

Former employees of the original MXR Innovations created ART, which has become one of the world's largest signal processing manufacturers. ART engineers have been developing products for the music industry for nearly 30 years. Cool items like the original MXR Phase 90, the original MXR Flanger (the Eddie Van Halen sound) and the MXR 175 Rackmount Delay (the one guitar virtuoso Eric Johnson uses) were created by an ART Engineer!

The company product line began with a primary focus on pro audio processing. The product line consisted of rack mounted, high-definition equalizers and digital reverbs. Many of these originals are still in use today... a testament to ART design and engineering.

Currently, ART addresses the Dynamics Processing market with a broad range of audio tools. ART introduced the Tube MP Microphone Preamp, which set a new standard for tube mic preamp price/performance expectations. Mix magazine nominated the unit for a prestigious TEC Award that year... and for those who are familiar with the TEC Awards, you know the prestige of the award.

ART, realizing the need for tube processing that delivers on a price/performance ratio, went on to developing a full line of microphone preamps that all have the acclaimed ART sound. ART also created a full line of Tube Compressors, including the highly acclaimed PRO VLA, which has become the compressor to own among the project (and pro) studio set. The Pro VLA won Electronic Musician Magazine Editor's Choice Award for Best Dynamics Processor under $1,000.

Today, ART offers more products that address more needs - all at lower prices - than ever before. We have a brand new series - our 400 Series of Processors, which include professional graphic equalizers, audio utilities and digital power distribution systems.
