6. Make sure that the volume of your amp or mixer is turned
down, and then turn the STANDBY switch on.
7. Raise the volume controls of your amp or mixer, and turn
the rear panel LEVEL knob to adjust the volume. NOTE: Since the ToneLab ST uses a vacuum tube, there might not be sound for a few seconds until the vacuum tube has warmed up.
Creating your own sounds
There are two ways to create your own sound: you can start with a program thats similar to what you have in mind and then edit the parameters as desired, or you can create a program from scratch.
2. Press the AMP bank select switch to select a bank, and use
the AMP selector to select an amp model. Each time you press the AMP bank switch, the bank will cycle through STD (Standard), SPL (Special), CST (Custom), STD. For details on the amp models, refer to Amp models (p.13).
Creating a sound
Here well explain how to create a program from scratch.
3. Use the GAIN, TREBLE, MIDDLE, BASS, and VOLUME
controls to adjust the tone and volume. The GAIN control adjusts the gain. The TREBLE, MIDDLE, and BASS controls adjust the high, mid, and low-frequency tone. The VOLUME control adjusts the volume. HINT: The sound might be distorted in an undesirable way depending on the settings of the TREBLE, MIDDLE, or BASS controls, or depending on other settings. If so, adjust the VOLUME control to an appropriate volume.
1. Turn off the cabinet model and effect types.
If the CABINET on/off switch, MOD/DELAY on/off switch, and REVERB on/off switch LEDs are lit, press each switch to turn them off.
4. If desired, select a cabinet model and adjust the high-frequency tone. To turn the cabinet model on Press the CABINET on/off switch. The LED will light. To change the cabinet mode Hold down the CABINET on/off switch for about one second to enter OPTION parameter setting mode (the CABINET on/off switch LED will blink). Then turn the GAIN control. For details on the cabinet models, refer to Cabinet models (p.17).
Adjusting the high-frequency tone (Presence) Hold down the CABINET on/off switch for about one second to enter OPTION parameter setting mode, and then turn the TREBLE control.
Parameter original value indication
This is a way for you to check the original value of a parameter; i.e., the value that was saved in the preset program or user program. When you're using a knob to edit the value of a parameter, the decimal point in the lower left of the program display LED is lit momentarily when the edited value matches the original value. HINT: You can take advantage of this original value indication to nd out the actual settings of a program that you like. NOTE: The settings of the rear panel LEVEL knob and AMP/ LINE switch are not saved, and will not be shown by the original value indication. Nor will the original value of the SPEED parameter or TIME parameter be shown when you use the TAP switch to set the SPEED parameter or TIME parameter.
5. Select and adjust the effects of other sections.
For example if you want to add delay, turn the MOD/ DELAY selector to select DELAY. If the selector is already positioned at DELAY, turn it to some other delay type and then back to re-select DELAY. Use the TAP switch or EDIT knob to set the delay time, delay level (the mix amount of delay sound), and feedback. To set the delay time Press the TAP switch twice (the time will be set to the interval at which you press the switch). To adjust the delay level or feedback Delay level: Turn the EDIT knob. Feedback: Hold down the TAP switch and turn EDIT. For details on the effect types, refer to Effect types (p.18). HINT: If youve selected a pedal effect, it might be easier to make adjustments if other effects are not being applied. If so, adjust the pedal effect after youve specied the amp model and cabinet model, but before you make settings for other effects.
Noise reduction settings
Noise reduction reduces the unwanted noise that might be heard between notes. This setting is made independently for each program. HINT: High-gain amp models are particularly prone to noise, so we recommend using noise reduction in this case.
6. When youve come up with a sound that you like, save it as
a program. For details, refer to Saving a program (p.12). NOTE: If you switch to a different program or turn off the power before saving, the changes youve made will be discarded, and the settings will revert to their original state.
1. Hold down the CABINET on/off switch for about one second to enter OPTION parameter setting mode. The CABINET on/off switch LED will blink.
2. Turn the MIDDLE control to adjust the noise reduction sensitivity.
Turning the knob toward the right will increase the amount of noise reduction. Turning the knob all the way to the left will turn noise reduction off; it will have no effect. NOTE: Depending on the guitar youre using, excessively high settings of noise reduction may cause notes to be cut off unnaturally.
Saving a program
When youve come up with a sound you like, heres how to save (write) it. NOTE: If you switch to a different program or turn off the power before saving, the changes youve made will be discarded, and the settings will revert to their original state.

any thanks for adding the VOX Valvetronix ToneLabSE to your sonic arsenal. Were sure itll give you countless hours of great guitar tones that will feel as good as they sound!
ToneLabSE features Valve Reactor technology that switches between Class A and Class AB power amp circuits with an actual 12AX7 (ECC 83) miniature triode valve (vacuum tube) to create the sound of an actual tube power amp, delivering the response and tone of classic amps. ToneLabSE uses sophisticated modeling technology to create classic amp, cabinet, and effect sounds. You can choose from sixteen amp types that include classic vintage amps and expensive high-end valve amps, and eleven different cabinet types. By combining amp types and cabinet types you can create an amazing range of sounds, many of which have never been heard before. Since high-quality effects are built in, ToneLabSE is all you need to create a completely nished sound. Sixteen types of pedal effects are placed before the amp, and after the cabinet are eleven types of modulation, eleven types of delay, and eleven types of reverb. You can choose one type for each effect, and use these four effects simultaneously plus Noise Reduction. You can store all of your own amp settings and effect model settings as a program in one of 96 program memories. ToneLabSE comes with 32 preset programs for instant gratication. Manual Mode lets you use ToneLabSE just like conventional amps and effects. The sound will be exactly as specied by the physical positions of the amp section knobs. In other words.what you see is what you get! For convenient tuning, an Auto Chromatic Tuner is built-in. There are two expression pedals that you can use as a wah pedal, volume pedal, or to control a variety of effect parameters a great feature for live performance. Theres a Quick Assign function that makes it easy to assign parameters to the expression pedal. ToneLabSE provides control switches that let you do things like set the delay time via TAP TEMPO, switch insert effects on/off, or switch the speed of a rotary speaker. again, must-have features for live performance.
EXPRESSION AND CONTROL PEDALS
You can use the expression pedal and control pedal to control wah, volume, or effect parameters with your feet. Use the EXPRESSION button or the CONTROL button to specify the parameter that will be controlled by the corresponding pedal.
SAVING A PROGRAM
By using the WRITE button, all settings you make can be saved as a program. When doing so, you should use the RENAME button to give the program a new name. Once youve saved a program, you can use the program select pedals to recall it instantly (in Program Select mode).
MIDI AND OUTPUT DESTINATION SETTINGS
The GLOBAL button lets you make MIDI-related settings and specify the destination to which ToneLabSE is connected. The settings you make here are automatically saved within ToneLabSE so theres no need to perform the WRITE operation.
A Guitarists Guided Panel Tour
Here were going to learn about the buttons and other controls on ToneLabSEs top and rear panel.
HINT: The inside back cover of this manual folds out to reveal a big picture of ToneLabSEs top panel, rear panel, and display. Leave this folded out as you continue reading so youll be able to see the panel diagram while you read about each section.
THE TOP PANEL
1 MODEL SELECT SECTION
Here you can select the model of amp, cabinet and effect models.
1.1 MODEL select buttons Use these when selecting the effect category you want to edit with value knobs 16, and when switching effects on/off. If an effect youre using is ON it will be lit (or blinking during editing), and if OFF it will be dark.
Press a button once and its LED will blink; now you can use value knobs 16 to edit the parameters of that effect. If you want turn off an effect that is currently on, press the model select button for the appropriate effect once (it blinks), and then press that model switch button once again to turn it off (dark); the name display will indicate [--OFF--]. The pedal effect is placed in front of the amp model and the modulation, delay, and reverb are placed after the cabinet model.
NOTE: While the cabinet model select button is blinking, you can use the value knobs to adjust the parameters of the amp model. NOTE: The amp and cabinet model select buttons will change color depending on the channel you select; they will be lit (or blinking) green when channel A is selected, and red when channel B is selected. NOTE: The reason that modulation, delay, and reverb effects are placed after the amp rather than before it as a stompbox would be is that they sound better and more realistic. For example, REVERB emulates the sound created by a room or hall. So, logic dictates that if were going to add it to our sound, the closer to the end of the signal chain we put it, the more real and natural its going to sound. The same is true for DELAY and MODULATION effects theyre going to sound more natural if added near the end of your signal path, not at its beginning. Also, if youre using a crunch or high gain lead sound then it makes much more sense to add effects like ROTARY, ROOM (reverb), or DELAY after its been distorted, rather than before.
6 BANK/PROGRAM/CHANNEL/SELECT SECTION
6.1 BANK UP/DOWN pedals In Program Select mode, press BANK UP to increment the bank by one, or BANK DOWN to decrement it by one. In Effect On/Off mode, you can use the BANK DOWN pedal to switch INSERT (the external effect) on/off. 6.2 Program select pedals, Program LEDs Use these to select programs. The program LED at the upper left of each pedal will light accordingly.
4 CONTROL SETUP SECTION
In Effect On/Off mode, these switches individually switch the Pedal, Modulation, Delay, and Reverb effects on/off.
6.3 A/B ch channel select pedal, Channel LEDs Use this to change channels within the currently selected program. The channel LEDs located above the pedal will light accordingly (green when channel A is selected, red when channel B is selected).
7 FX ON/OFF SWITCH
Press this switch when you want to switch to Effect On/Off mode and the LED at the upper left of the pedal will light. In Effect On/Off mode you can use the program select pedals to individually switch the Pedal, Modulation, Delay, and Reverb effects on/off. If you press and hold this switch for 0.5 seconds or longer, the output will be bypassed. If you press and hold this pedal for one second or longer, the output will be muted. The tuner will operate when ToneLabSE is bypassed or muted. To cancel bypass or mute (Tuner), press this switch once again.
8 EFFECT CONTROL SECTION
8.1 CONTROL (Control switch) This pedal controls the effect function specied by the Control switch setting. 8.2 EXP1, EXP2 (Expression pedal 1, Expression pedal 2) These pedals control the effect parameter you assigned as the expression pedal setting; e.g., volume, wah, or other effect parameter. Pressing down rmly on an expression pedal will activate a switch underneath the pedal, letting you turn the assigned effect on/off (except when youve assigned volume or an amp parameter).
9.1 Valve window ToneLabSE contains a 12AX7 (ECC83) valve (vacuum tube).
NOTE: The valve cover and or valve may break if its subjected to impact. If the valve cover breaks, please have it replaced; leaving a damaged cover may lead to the valve itself to become damaged.
10 POWER SUPPLY
10.1 ~AC9V Connect the included AC/AC power supply here. 10.2 STANDBY button Turns the power on/off.
11.1 INPUT jack Connect your guitar to this jack. 11.2 INSERT jacks (SEND, RETURN) You can connect an external effect processor or stompbox to these jacks.
Connect SEND to the input of your external effect device. Connect RETURN to the output of your external effect device.
11.3 LEVEL knob Adjusts the output level from the OUTPUT jacks and the PHONE jack. 11.4 OUTPUT jacks (L/MONO, R) These are analog output jacks (balanced/unbalanced TRS). If youre using a mono output, connect the L/MONO jack. 11.5 PHONE jack (stereo) Connect your headphones to this jack.
As an example, heres how to select program 2-3 (bank 2, program 3). 1. Make sure that ToneLabSE is in Program Select mode. If the Effect On/Off pedal LED is lit, youre in Effect On/Off mode. Press the FX ON/OFF pedal to change to Program Select mode. 2. Use the BANK UP/DOWN pedals (6.1) to select bank 2. The bank number blinks in the bank display. 3. Press the program select 3 pedal (6.2). Program 2-3 will be recalled instantly. The program select 3 pedal LED will light, and the bank number will also change to be steadily lit.
HINT: When youve selected the Bank but not the Program, the previously-selected program is still active. So if youre playing live and your next program change requires you to switch to a different bank, you can select that bank ahead of time, ensuring a timely, seamless change.
EFFECT ON/OFF MODE
You can use program select pedals 14 to switch the pedal effect, modulation effect, delay effect, and reverb effect of the current program on/off individually. Also, you can use the BANK DOWN pedal to switch the signal that is being sent through the external effect processor connected to the INSERT jacks. When you want to switch programs, press the effect ON/OFF pedal once again to return to Program Select mode.
NOTE: In Effect On/Off mode, the BANK UP pedal does nothing.
As an example, heres how you can switch the pedal and insert effects on/off for the current program. 1. If the Effect ON/OFF pedal LED is dark, youre in Program Select mode. Press the Effect ON/OFF pedal to change to Effect On/Off mode. Program LEDs 14 indicate the on/off status of the pedal, modulation, delay, and reverb effects. 2. If program LED 1 is lit, the pedal effect is ON. When you press program select pedal 1, the pedal effect will turn off and LED 1 will go dark. 3. If the INSERT button LED is dark, your guitar signal is not being sent through the external effect. When you press the BANK DOWN pedal, the external effect send/return will be turned ON, and the INSERT switch LED will light.
NOTE: If you havent connected an external effect processor to the INSERT SEND/ RETURN jacks, the INPUT signal will bypass the insert circuit whether the INSERT switch LED is lit or dark.
A/B CHANNEL HOLD
You can specify whether the channel (A or B) memorized in the program will be automatically selected when you select the program (OFF), or whether your current channel selection (A or B) will be maintained even when you select a different program(ON). 1. Press the GLOBAL button, and use the , buttons to access the CH HOLD display. 2. Use value knob 6 or the , buttons to change the setting.
NOTE: With the factory settings this is set to OFF.
ACTIVATING OR DEACTIVATING THE KEY LOCK FUNCTION
Heres how you can use the Key Lock function to disable ToneLabSEs buttons, selectors, and knobs so they cant be accidentally changed during a live performance.
HINT: For details on amp types, cabinet types, and effect types, refer to Explanations of the Amp, Cab and Effect Types (p. 23).
5. Use value knobs 16 to adjust the GAIN, VR GAIN, TREBLE, MIDDLE, BASS, and CH VOLUME as desired. CH VOLUME adjusts the volume while preserving the overall character of the sound, including the distortion of the power stage. To adjust PRESENCE, press the PRES-NR button and turn value knob 3. To return to adjusting GAIN etc., press the AMP model select button.
HINT: The key to getting the most accurate vintage tube amp distortion is to raise the VR GAIN. NOTE: Some settings may cause your output sound to be distorted (i.e., in a way you dont intend). If so, lower the CH VOLUME.
There are two ways you can do this; by tweaking an existing program or by starting from scratch.
Creating and Storing your own Programs
6. Use the CABINET model selector to choose the cabinet you want.
HINT: For recommended combinations of amp type and cabinet type, refer to p.34.
7. Press the PRES-NR button and adjust NR SENS (value knob 4) appropriately. Higher values of noise reduction (0.2, 0.4,. 10.0) will produce a correspondingly greater effect. With a setting of OFF there will be no noise reduction.
NOTE: We recommend that you use noise reduction if youre using a high-gain setting such as the RECTO or US HIGAIN amp type, since high gain usually generates more noise. Depending on the guitar youre using, raising the noise reduction excessively may cause some of your notes to be cut off unnaturally. HINT: You can set noise reduction independently for channels A and B. HINT: You can also specify a different amp or cabinet for channel B. To do so, press the channel select pedal to make the LED light red, and repeat steps 47.
8. In each section, choose the effect you want to use. For example if you want to add spring reverb, use the REVERB selector to select SPRING 1 (or SPRING 2).
HINT: When you do so, the reverb model will automatically be turned on, the REVERB parameter line LED of the edit section will blink, and the LEDs below the value knobs will light to indicate the REVERB parameters. For example if youve selected SPRING 1, value knobs 14 will control TIME, LO DAMP, HI DAMP, and PRE DELAY, while value knob 6 will control MIX.
So, wind the GAIN control all the way up and immerse yourself in an instantly recognizable, organic overdrive that responds beautifully to the subtle dynamics of your playing and dominates classic rock. Rolling back your guitars volume control results in a unique and highly useable clean sound. Originals valve compliment: 3 x ECC83s in the preamp, 2 x EL34s in the power amp.
7. UK 80S
This is modelled on a 1983, all tube, single channel 100 Watt head that boasts a Master Volume control - a wonderful feature that allows the user to dial in a decent crunch tone without having to max out the amps volume. Invariably played with its (preamp) Gain control cranked to the max, this amp was responsible for the fat, roaring sound that dominated 80s hard rock and heavy metal. Yes sir, from spandex clad Europeans who rocked like hurricanes, to American speed freaks who rode the lightning and reigned in blood, UK 80s was the only amp of choice.and, for many, still is! Although UK 80s became famous for its distinctive, cranium-crushing crunch, it isnt merely a one trick pony and neither is our model - just like the original, when you roll back your guitars volume knob youll get a bright, clean sound thats perfect for chord work and will cut through any mix like a hot knife through butter.
Originals valve compliment: 3 x ECC83s in the preamp, 4 x EL34s in the power amp.
8. UK 90S
This model is based on the lead channel of a 100 Watt, dual channel head that is capable of so much preamp distortion it houses a Gain control that goes all the way up to a Nigel Tufnel approved 20, dunnit! This amp replaced UK 80s and was developed to satisfy the ever-evolving rock guitarists insatiable lust for more gain, features and exibility. Was this amp popular? Judging by the fact it quickly became the industry standard for the decade in question, the answer is a resounding yes!
Originals valve compliment: 4 x ECC83s in the preamp, 4 x EL34s in the power amp.
9. UK MODERN (UK MODRN)
This is modelled on the High Gain channel of a modern, all-tube 100 Watter that is effectively a hybrid of the UK 80s and UK 90s amps. It combines the toneful high gain preamp stage and modern features of UK 90s with the unmistakable, snarling punch and girth the UK 80s power stage had to offer. The result is a highly aggressive, tone-breathing monster capable of mondo-gain while retaining individual note denition. With the GAIN control on full, UK MODERN allows lead lines to soar into soulful feedback, while its low-end chunk remains tight and punchy. Wimps beware!
NOTE: As the original doesnt have a Presence control, PRESENCE is neutral when off, but can be used to add extra sparkle and cut to the model if you so wish.
16. TWEED 4X10 (TWD 4X10)
The 4x10 combo we modelled here was built in 1959 and originally intended for bass guitar. This said, six-stringers were quick to embrace its smooth-yet-cutting overdrive which is perfect for R&B (rhythm n blues) guitar. TWEED 4x10 is also very sensitive and responsive to both picking strength and the volume setting on your guitar. This means that by backing-off your axes volume when the amp is cranked, you can produce a beautifully clean and full tone. It also means that dynamic picking control allows you to make notes or chords more distorted or clean than others, depending on how hard or how soft you pick em.
Another cool tonal quirk of TWEED 4x10 is the classic, vintage tube amp sag its GZ34 rectier tube adds to your notes whenever the amp is driven really hard. What is sag? Do I hear you ask? Well, crank the Gain and VR GAIN controls on this model, dig in hard with your pick and youll soon nd out! Can you hear how the note literally sags when you rst hit it and then it opens up? Thats sag, geddit?
TONAL NOTE: Just like on the original, the Middle and Treble control of TWEED 4x10 are highly interactive and high settings of the Middle control automatically add treble to your sound. As a result, you may want to turn down the Treble control as a counter measure. Conversely, low Middle settings reduce treble so you might want to crank the Treble a little more in such instances.
Originals tube compliment: 1 x 12AY7, 2 x 12AX7s in the preamp, 1x GZ34 rectier, 2 x 5881s in the power amp.
Originals tube compliment: 1 x 12AY7, 1 x 12AX7s in the preamp, 1 x 5Y3GT rectier, 2 x 6V6s in the power amp.
In keeping with the original, the TWEED 1x12 produces an open, relatively uncoloured sound when clean, but starts to snarl beautifully when pushed into overdrive. Its highly desirable snarl is rich with harmonic content and cranking this puppy up will produce those classic, old rockabilly and rock n roll sounds of the 50s and 60s, at the drop of a 10 gallon hat - especially when a single coil pickup is used.
B. CABINET MODELS
Now lets look at the CABINET models:
CABINET AND SPEAKER ACCURACY
Theres not much point in having incredibly accurate amp models if the speaker cabinet models on offer arent of the same exacting standards. As you may know, in real life, the output stage of a tube amp works in close harmony with the varying impedance curve of the speaker(s) it is driving. This intimate and vital relationship plays a major role in producing the warm, punchy sound and pleasing feel that we all know and love. In a nutshell, modelling a speaker cabinet is not just a case of frequency response, but is a combination of frequency response, transient response (how a speaker reacts to the strength of how a note is played), and the all-important interaction of the amps output to the speakers impedance curve. In addition, other vitally important factors that have to be taken into account when modelling a cabinet are the actual physical dimensions of the enclosure (cabinet), the unique tonality of said enclosure (which will be affected by both the type and thickness of the wood it is made of) and whether it boasts an open, semi-open or closed-back design. Special circuitry and unique modelling technology ensures that all of these factors are well taken care of in the cabinet models built into your ToneLabSE.

4. AUTO WAH
The lazy mans Wah pedal! Only kidding.this quirky but useful effect allows you to create an automatic Wah effect that varies with your picking dynamics (i.e. how hard or soft you hit the strings). As in VOX WAH, you can select either V847 or V848 as the wah type. * Adjusts the sensitivity with which the wah responds to the volume of the guitar.

Modelled on the famous Univox Uni-Vibe - a phase/vibrato effect that was designed to simulate a rotating speaker and produces a wonderfully seductive and watery tone. Interestingly enough, the guy responsible for this great pedal is also responsible for the birth of the remarkable Valve Reactor Technology used in the power amp of your ToneLabSE.  SPEED 1.00.10.00 [Hz] Adjusts the speed of the Uni-Vibe effect.  DEPTH 0.0.10.0 Adjusts the depth of the Uni-Vibe effect.  MIX 0.0.10.0 Adjusts the mixture of direct sound and vibrato.
HINT: If you assign Speed to be controlled by an expression pedal, youll be able to control the vibrato speed just like on a Uni-Vibe.
6. BLK/ORG PHASE (B/O PHAS)
This models three models of phaser; a wide-range four-stage phaser that was made in Denmark and packaged in a black box, a popular four-stage phaser that came in a banana-colored box, and a mild-sounding ten-stage phaser that was likewise banana-colored. Use the TYPE knob to select the model.     SPEED 0.100.10.00 [Hz] Adjusts the modulation speed. DEPTH 0.0.10.0* Adjusts the modulation depth. RESO 0.0.10.0 Adjusts the amount of resonance.

1. CLASSIC CHORUS (CL CHORUS) MONO IN/MONO OUT 1 (MODE=1,3) MONO IN/MONO OUT 3 (MODE=2)
This models a chorus unit that has two modes (chorus and vibrato), and is bestknown for being built into a guitar amp. Theres no parameter to switch between chorus and vibrato, but you can use the SPEED and DEPTH knobs to create either of these sounds, giving you an even broader range of possibilities than the original unit! The output vibrato mode allows you to create vibrato (pitch modulation) by outputting just the effect sound.  SPEED 0.10010.00 [Hz] * Adjusts the modulation speed.  DEPTH 0.010.0 * Adjusts the modulation depth.  MANUAL 1.010.0 * Adjusts the center frequency of the sweep. If DEPTH is set to 10, MANUAL will not function.  MODE 1, 2, 3 Selects the output mode. 1: Mono output. 2: Stereo mode in which the effect is panned right, and the dry sound panned left. 3: Vibrato mode, in which only the effect sound is output. Setting MANUAL to 10 will minimize the delay of the output sound.
2. STEREO CHORUS (ST CHORUS)
MONO IN/STEREO OUT 1
3. ANALOG DELAY (ANLG DL)
This models an analog delay that used a bucket-brigade device (BBD) instead of a tape mechanism and was known for its compactness and reliability. It is characterized by a warmly distorted sound.     TIME 12000 [ms] FEEDBACK 0.010.0 TONE 1.010.0 MIX 0.010.0 * Sets the delay time. * Adjusts the amount of feedback. * Adjusts the tone of the delay sound. * Adjusts the mix amount of the delay sound.
4. MOD DELAY (MOD DLY)
This models Korgs rst digital delay, the SDD-3000. You can also use this to produce chorus or anger-like effects by setting a short TIME and using the LFO to modulate it.
    
TIME 32000 [ms] * Sets the delay time. FEEDBACK 0.010.0 * Adjusts the amount of feedback. TONE 1.010.0 * Adjusts the tone of the delay sound. SPEED 0.10010.00 [Hz] * Adjusts the modulation speed. MIX 0.010.0 * Adjusts the mix amount of the delay sound.
5. SWEEP DELAY (SWEEP DL)
This also models the SDD-3000. Here you can use the envelope of your guitar signal to control the DELAY TIME, and by setting a short TIME and raising the FEEDBACK you can produce a distinctive anger effect. Even with conventional settings of TIME, you can produce unique effects that would not be possible with an LFO.
TIME 262000 [ms] * Sets the delay time. FEEDBACK 0.010.0 * Adjusts the amount of feedback. TONE 1.010.0 * Adjusts the tone of the delay sound. SENS 0.010.0 * Adjusts the sensitivity at which the effect responds to the volume of your guitar.  MIX 0.010.0 * Adjusts the mix amount of the delay sound.
6. STEREO DELAY (ST DL)
STEREO IN/STEREO OUT 1
This is Korgs 24-bit digital delay, the DL8000R. With the exception of the sampling frequency and wave control of the DELAY TIME, the circuit is essentially identical. Since this is a full-stereo design, its particularly effective to place it after the output of a stereo MOD or REVERB effect.
7. CROSS DELAY (CROSS DL)
STEREO IN/STEREO OUT 3
This is the DL8000R with settings to make the feedback cross over from L->R and R->L.
8. 2TAP DELAY (2TAP DLY)
This is the DL8000R with two delay taps whose DELAY TIME is skewed by 20 ms and separately assigned to L and R, turning a mono input into stereo.     TIME 14000 [ms] FEEDBACK 0.010.0 TONE 1.010.0 DUCKING 0.010.0 Sets the delay time. * Adjusts the amount of feedback. * Adjusts the tone of the delay sound. * Adjusts the sensitivity at which the effect will duck (decrease) in response to the volume of your guitar. Ducking: This automatically lowers the volume of the delay sound when you play your guitar loudly, allowing your playing to come through. * Adjusts the mix amount of the delay sound.
9. RHYTHM DELAY (RHYTM DL)
This provides a DL8000R function in which the TIME of two delay taps is automatically set according to the RHYTHM you specify.     TIME 14000 [ms] FEEDBACK 0.010.0 TONE 1.010.0 DUCKING 0.010.0 Sets the delay time. * Adjusts the amount of feedback. * Adjusts the tone of the delay sound. * Adjusts the sensitivity at which the effect will duck (decrease) in response to the volume of your guitar. Species the two-tap rhythm delay when the delay time is set to quarter-note timing. For some settings, only one tap is used. * Adjusts the mix amount of the delay sound.
10. HOLD DELAY (HOLD DLY)
If you assign HOLD DLY to the CONTROL pedal, youll be able to hold the delay sound.  TIME 18000 [ms]  FEEDBACK 0.010.0  TONE 1.010.0  MIX 0.010.0 CONTROL pedal: HOLD DLY: Sets the delay time. * Adjusts the amount of feedback. * Adjusts the tone of the delay sound. * Adjusts the mix amount of the delay sound. If you select HOLD DLY for the CONTROL pedal, the delay sound will be held from the moment you turn the pedal on.
11. REVERSE DELAY (REVRS DL)
This is a digital delay that plays the delay sound backward. You can get some really cool results by playing long notes in a legato fashion.     TIME 14000 [ms] FEEDBACK 0.010.0 TONE 1.010.0 MIX 0.010.0 Sets the delay time. * Adjusts the amount of feedback. * Adjusts the tone of the delay sound. * Adjusts the mix balance between the delay sound and direct sound. With a setting of 10 you will hear only the delay sound.
F. REVERB EFFECTS
Here you can make settings for the reverb effect that is placed after the cabinet. You can choose one of eleven types of reverb. (*): This indicates a parameter that you can control from an expression pedal.

1. SPRING 1
A model of the spring reverb system used in guitar amps ideal for surf music!
2. SPRING 2 3. PLATE 1
MONO IN/STEREO OUT 1 MONO IN/STEREO OUT 1
This models a spring reverb that produces a higher-density reverberation.
This models a type of reverb unit that works by vibrating a metal plate instead of a spring. It is adjusted to a fairly short reverb time. This reverberation is characterized by a rapid attack, and is suitable for percussive playing.
4. PLATE 2
This models a plate reverb that produces a higher-density reverberation.
5. CHAMBER 1
In past years, recording studios often used a room (echo chamber) that was specially designed to produce reverberation, and contained a speaker and mic used to record reverberation. This model simulates a mild-sounding echo chamber.
6. CHAMBER 2 7. ROOM 1 8. ROOM 2 9. HALL 1 10. HALL 2
This models an echo chamber designed to produce a bright sound.
NOTE: If you change the effect type of a parameter that is assigned to an expression target (i.e., to be controlled by one of the expression pedals), the target will be initialized to a setting of --OFF--. (However, A/*****, D/INPUT, and R/INPUT are exceptions.) HINT: If youve set the PEDAL effect type to VOX WAH, the P/MANUAL (wah position) will automatically be assigned to expression 1. If you then set the PEDAL effect to a different type without making any further settings, the Target, Min, and Max settings will automatically return to their former settings. (However in the case of P/******, it will be initialized to --OFF-- instead of returning to its former setting.) NOTE: When you change the expression target, the MIN and MAX values will be initialized.
SETTING THE EXPRESSION TARGET
Here are the items you can set. When youve pressed the EXPRESSION button to make it blink, youll be able to set the following items by turning value knobs 16.
*/######: EXP 1 expression target (value display indicates E1) EXP 1 MIN: EXP 1 (expression pedal 1) target range (minimum value) EXP 1 MAX: EXP 1 (expression pedal 1) target range (maximum value) */######: EXP 2 expression target (value display indicates E2) EXP 2 MIN: EXP 2 (expression pedal 2) target range (minimum value) EXP 2 MAX: EXP 2 (expression pedal 2) target range (maximum value) Value knob 1 Value knob 2 Value knob 3 Value knob 4 Value knob 5 Value knob 6
NOTE: You can set the above items individually for each program. If you switch to a different program or turn off the power without saving, any changes youve made will be lost.
Using the same example we described earlier when explaining Quick Assign, heres how to assign expression pedal 1 to control the PITCH parameter of the PITCH SHIFTER modulation effect. 1. Use the MODULATION selector to select PITCH SHIFTER. So that the effect will be easy to hear, well initialize the PITCH SHIFTER. If PITCH SHIFTER is already selected, turn the selector to choose a different effect, and then reselect PITCH SHIFTER.
NOTE: If you change the effect type of a parameter that is assigned to an expression target, the target will be initialized to a setting of --OFF--. (However, A/*****, D/INPUT, and R/INPUT are exceptions.) HINT: If youve set the PEDAL effect type to VOX WAH, the P/MANUAL (wah position) will automatically be assigned to expression 1. If you then set the PEDAL effect to a different type without making any further settings, the target setting will also automatically return to the former setting.
NOTE: Never turn off the power while this reload operation is occurring.
f you suspect a malfunction, please check the following points rst. If this does not resolve the problem, please contact your dealer or Vox authorized service center.
1. The amp isnt powering up when the STANDBY switch is on
Is the AC/AC power supply connected to the rear panel ~AC9V jack? Is the AC/AC power supply plugged into an AC outlet? Is the STANDBY switched on? Could the AC/AC power supply be damaged?
2. Theres no sound
Is your guitar turned up? Are both ends of your guitar cable plugged into the correct jacks? Is your guitar cable working? Could the rear panel OUTPUT LEVEL knob be turned down? Check the GAIN, TREBLE, MIDDLE, BASS, VR GAIN, and CH VOLUME settings. For some amp types, you might not hear any sound if the TREBLE, MIDDLE, and BASS settings are turned down just like the circuitry on the original amp! If you are using a pedal effect, check the DRIVE  and LEVEL  settings as well. Could an expression pedal be at the minimum position with a parameter such as DRIVE, LEVEL, VOLUME, GAIN, or VR GAIN assigned to it? Could you have activated the Mute function? Press the FX ON/OFF (TUNER) pedal to defeat muting.
Are the effect LEDs lit? If an LED is dark, the corresponding effect is off. Press the MODE select button to turn on the effect. Could the modulation DEPTH or the delay/reverb MIX be set to a low value? Press the MODE select button to select an effect and use the value knobs to adjust the appropriate parameters. Could the effect be bypassed? If so, press the FX ON/OFF pedal to cancel bypass.
3. You can't hear any effects even though they're dialed in.
4. Youre using the ACOUSTIC pedal effect and getting nasty high frequency distortion.
Could the Drive setting be excessively high? Are you using a very high output humbucking pickup? Either turn down the volume of your guitar, the Amp GAIN or Treble setting for the pedal.
5. The sound connected to your guitar amp is distorted, or sounds wrong.
Could OUT SEL switch be set to Ln (LINE)? Could LEVEL be raised excessively? Make the correct settings as described in Basic Connections.
