Top Customer Reviews
+ Has a wide selection of Amp models - they are all very useable but I am not sure how accurate they are but I do notice that the AC15/AC30 amps don't have that chime of a real VOX amp.
+ The Vyzex software (free download) lets you tweek amp and effects settings easily and allows control of some aspects that the hardware doesn't e.g. cabinets and wah effect but no dual amping.
+ Through headphones it sounds great but the sound is very diffent from the amp out so setting up presets vua headphones is not the way to go.
+ loads of presets (300+) but see below
- Presets have lots of bands/songs that I've not heard of. Some that I've heard of sound accurate others do not.
- There are no artist presets which is a shame.
- Volumes vary between amps - this is a big problem, some amps are way too loud and threaten to blow up your amp/headphones etc when you select them. Come on line 6 don't you test this stuff?
- Whilst you can save 100 or so of your own presets it is hard to adjust the existing presets (unless using the vyzex sw) because the pots are not continuous - touch a pot even slightly and what ever it controls will jump to what ever position the pot is in; there is no indication of the original value so you can't dial in small refinements.
- The knobs/buttons have a dual use with the save button doubling as a sort of shift key - this hasn't been thought through because this save button makes it easy to overwrite a preset when all you want to do is tweek it.
One other thing I ain't keen on is that you make a patch using headphones, then when you come to record through the output/amp in, the sound that comes out is the patch you made minus the amp/cab settings (I think). Either way, it isn't the same sound you spent ages crafting. Didn't realize this until I recorded something whilst monitoring through the pc.. It sounded flat and digital. Back to the broken pandora methinks..
The first thing you notice on taking it out of the box is that it feels more like a cheap toy than something you've just spent £90 on - I can't imagine it would last a gigging musician more than a week. Like another reviewer, I then had to spend ages trying to wedge the batteries in with folded paper to get it to stay on. Then realised that it absolutely eats batteries so have had to send off for a power adaptor. For the brief time that I managed to use it with batteries, I found it rather annoying that it doesn't just have an on/off switch, which means that you have to pull your guitar lead and the USB lead out of it to get it to switch off. Given its flimsy build quality, I can't imagine that you will get away with doing this for too long.
I thought that this combined with a little Vox Pathfinder 10 would do me fine for playing along to songs in my study but I'm finding that it isn't nearly as 'plug and play' as I was expecting. It seems to give off a lot of background noise and I'm having to do a lot of tweaking to try to get a tone that isn't 'muddy'
I have tried it with headphones and have to admit that it sounds great when used in this way but that isn't how I wanted to use it.
