Redefining the guitar amplifier as you know it, using advanced modelling technology Vox have created something which can capture that magic classic amp tones.
Vox VX-II Modelling Guitar Amplifier
Modeling amplification was first introduced nearly two decades ago. Since then, thanks to the advancement in technology, the quality and functionality of these amplifiers has increased dramatically. Because of these improvements, modeling amplifiers have become a more popular choice for a variety of modern guitarists. Now with the debut of VX I and VX II, VOX introduces a bold new modeling technique that yields vastly improved sound quality and a more authentic playing experience. A longtime innovator of modeling technology, VOX Amplification has taken modeling amps to the next level with the VX I and VX II.
New VET Technology
This technology is referred to as "modeling" because it is based on the existence of an original amplifier. In the case of rare vintage amps, it is not unusual for individual units of the same model to sound different due to the passage of time and the varying environments in which they have been used. For these reasons, the selection of the original amp has a major influence on the accuracy and sound quality of a modeling amp. Since the analysis is based on the output sound, the condition of the amp is also very influential, and the unavoidable reliance on the human ear has an even greater effect. These factors make it difficult to say that the modeling accuracy extends to the tonal changes arising from the interaction between the tone controls, the volume, and the various components.
In order to resolve these issues, Vox have completely rethought previous methods of modeling for the VX I and VX II. This led to the development of VET (Virtual Element Technology), which models the actual circuit of the original amp. An enormous amount of information about the vacuum tubes and each individual component was carefully analyzed in order to accurately reproduce the characteristics of the desired amplifier, as they were originally intended.
The eleven built-in amp models include VOX's legendary AC30 as well as also several high-gain, crunch, and clean sounds. A VX amplifier is the one unit you need to achieve a variety of coveted amplifier sounds ranging from classic vintage effects to costly boutique amps. A full complement of effects is also provided, including four types of modulation and four types of delay/reverb. The effects featured in the VX amplifier range have been also been reengineered to deliver more accurate and articulate tones. The eleven preset programs take full advantage of these amps and effects to simulate the signature sounds of famous guitarists and classic songs.
Over the Vox VX-I this amp has the advantage of having the JamVOX III Modeling software included which allows you to go into extreme depth with regards to changing your pedal and amp settings giving you a fantastic digital representation of actual amplifiers and pedals and control in front of you. It has 19 amp models, 12 speaker cabinet models, and 57 effect models which gives you access to any sort of sound you may require covering a vast variety of musical genres. As well as this on the software you also have the option to record direct to your PC or MAC. As well as this to connect to the software the amp has a built in USB audio interface which allows you to record direct form your amp via USB cutting out the need to mic the amp up or use another interface to process the signal. Finally it also has Editor/Librarian software which not only has support for PC but also for iOS devices.
