Studer has been able to create the "warmth", and other unique features of tube sound, in the D19 MicVALVE. This system is a unique 2-channel mic/line preamp with a "Valve Dignifier" tube stage. The tube sound circuitry can be switched into the signal path and offers control over a number of individual tube characteristics. The MicValve of the Studer D19-family was presented to the public in 1996, the same year Willi Studer passed away.

In addition to this, there is the LoCal low-cut filter, which only affects the frequencies below the low-cut corner frequency and gives the preamp about 20 dB more overload headroom. The discrete tube Class-A differential second stage further enhances the preamplifier's common-mode rejection, imparting sonic warmth and character.
