Since it appeared in 2001, VOX’s Valvetronix series has continued its distinctive evolution, fusing sophisticated modeling technology with the unique Valve Reactor circuit, which reproduces the operation of a tube power amp.
- VET (Virtual Elements Technology) delivers stunning sound quality
- Valvetronix preamp uses a vacuum tube multi-stage amplification circuit
- Hybrid digital/analog power amp
- High-performance DSP delivers next-level sound quality
- Unique chassis design provides rich low-end and overwhelming amp resonance
- Tone Room editor/librarian lets you customize the amps and effects
- A broad range of 11 realistic amp models (20 when using the editor/librarian software)
- A full complement of 13 high quality on-board effects
- 33 preset programs (60 when using the editor/librarian software), including signature sounds of famous guitarists
- Optional VFS5 foot switch allows for easy switching during performance
The latest VT20X/VT40X/VT100X features a brand new modeling engine and sounds even better than ever! By using VET (Virtual Element Technology), which is based on an analysis of the components and amp circuits themselves, VTX amplifiers produce the most accurate and realistic amplifier sounds to date. These new amplifiers also feature a multi- stage Valvetronix tube preamp. This preamp design incorporates authentic analog circuitry to achieve the subtle tonal adjustments and capture the nuances that are distinctive of vacuum tube amps. In addition to this clever circuitry, VTX amplifiers feature a tightly sealed cabinet and a proprietary bass-reflex designed to deliver stunning resonance. Go beyond the realm of previous modeling amps with the new VOX Tone Room editing software that lets you customize the existing amps and effects yourself, or create your own!
Virtual Elements Technology
Rather than merely modeling the output sound of the original amp, VET (Virtual Elements Technology) allows modeling down to the level of components and circuits. VET perfectly reproduces the characteristics of the original amp in the truest sense.
The VOX Valvetronix series fuses cutting-edge digital technology with classic analog circuitry and incorporates genuine vacuum tubes into the circuitry. This circuit accurately reproduces the distinctive distortion, rapid response, and tonal characteristics that are distinctive of classic tube amps and simply cannot be replicated by digital technology alone.
Hybrid Power Amp
The power amp stage combines a true analog circuit in addition with a high-performance digital power amp. The tonal differences between class A and AB, the effect of bias values on the tone, and the changes in dynamic response of the vacuum tubes are faithfully reproduced by the genuine analog circuit. All of these parameters can be adjusted to your liking, allowing you to truly customize the tone and response of the amp.
The sound quality of each amp model has also been significantly improved by the upgraded performance of the DSP. Highly sophisticated DSP has allowed us to obtain major improvements, not only in the sampling rate and the sound of each amp model, but also in the quality of the effects that are the heart of sound-shaping.
The sophisticated modeling technology inherits in the Valvetronix series offers a complete range of diverse amp sounds. The 11 amp models (20 types when using the editor/librarian software) offer the sound of the most sought-after tube amps by guitarists, including rare vintage amps and costly boutique amps. Models of the latest high-gain amps are also included, giving you the flexibility you need for a range of playing techniques and genres.
