If you still need further proof of the profound changes that the advent of “digital” has rendered in the pro audio world, look no further than the Valvetronix amp from Vox. It’s a digital modeling amp. From Vox. Yes, we too creased our brows and muttered things like “hmmm. Interesting” when we first heard the news. After all, Vox is more than some company that makes amps; it’s the company that makes Vox amps. But we shouldn’t have worried, and neither should you. The AD120VT sounds beautiful, and replicates 16 classic amp models and a selection of very cool effects with astounding accuracy and natural sound. In fact, it’s one of the most impressive sounding guitar amps we’ve heard in a long, long time.
Propagamma’s USB ASIO driver V2.0 for Windows is now available. You can purchase it from the USB-Audio website, or download a demo. The current version only supports the (Roland) Edirol UA-30 / UA-3 / UA-1A, Griffin’s iMic, Onkyo’s MSE-U33 (HB) / SE-U55 and Opcode’s interfaces.
One of the most popular keyboards sold at Sweetwater for the past several years has been the Alesis QS8.1 (with the 6.1 a close second). As you may know we are blowing these out right now for incredibly low prices. Yes, Alesis is coming out with the 8.2 and 6.2, but aside from cosmetic differences these are the same boards. We have just a few of the older models left and the price is too good to pass up. Call your Sales Engineer and get one now.
