Purchased a V-Amp Pro

Anyone else using one of these? I am impressed! I picked it up for recording purposes only and having the ability to use headsets. I needed some silence in the house and wanted to improve my sound a bit.

I am getting close to having some samples. I had a latency issue with my mbox that I just resolved so I am getting closer. For $169 this was well worth the money. I am not sure about live performances but for recording, this is going to work nicely!

chewy tone, what amp sims?

i think i would like to have one of those.

This thing is a kick. I guess since I was pretty much using one amp and one sound this is opening a whole new world for me.


I ran the v-amp via spdif cable into my digidesign MBOX using Pro Tools. The amp I used on here was a Modern Hi-Gain through 4x12 vin 30's. They describe the amp as a Vai/Satriani tone ala Soldano. The drums are a loop from a boss dr-660 I believe.

So, Dazed.. now that you've had it a few days what do you think? BTW - Is there an accompanying footpedal? (And do you have it?)

There is a foot pedal but I did not pick it up. One of the mods on my site has it and also has the pedal. He keeps telling me to order it. I am not really a lead player though so I did not see the need.


I am still thinking this is the best bang for the buck out there. I have only scratched the surface of this unit. People are raving about the simulated cab output capability. The main site is here http://www.behringer.com/LX1-PRO/index.cfm?lang=ENG but looking at the back of this will tell you why I got this one and not the vamp2. I do home recording only but this has a lot of flexibility.


I posted the picture but it was way too big lol. Just click the link :)
