The ToneLab ST features a power amp circuit that uses a miniature triode 12AX7 (ECC83) vacuum tube normally used in preamps, generating the sound of a real tube amp, and capturing the feel and tone of the original amplier (Valvetronix technology). Thirty-three amp models using sophisticated modeling technology are built-in. There are also eleven speaker cabinet models, giving you an easy way to recall sounds ranging from vintage amps of the past to expensive high-end tube amps. Twenty-ve high quality effects are built-in, allowing you to simultaneously use up to eight effect types including noise reduction. There are fty preset sounds that take advantage of the amps and effects, together with fty user-editable programs, giving you a total of one hundred programs that you can switch between by pressing a foot switch while you perform. The expression pedal lets you control wah, volume, or many other parameters with your foot a great asset during live performance.
The Quick Assign function makes it easy to assign parameters or other functions to the expression pedal. The Amp/Line switch ensures that your sound is correctly optimized whether youre using a guitar amp or line-level system as your audio output device. An Auto Chromatic Tuner is built-in for easy tuning. If you use a commercially available USB cable to connect the ToneLab ST to your computer, youll be able to use librarian software on your computer to manage user programs, or use the ToneLab ST as a USB audio interface.

A GUIDE FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO PLAY GUITAR FIRST, AND READ THE MANUAL LATER!
ep, we know. Youd rather be playing guitar than reading this manual. Who wouldnt? I know I would so heres a Quick Start to get you up and running without delay (pun intended) First well get started by trying out ToneLab LEs programs and then well explain how to use the various controls and knobs to create your own sounds. Right. Once youve gotten the urge to play out of your system, you should really give this manual a chance its been written by a fellow guitar fanatic and is full of useful tips and info thatll give you much more detail about ToneLab LE than whats in the Quick Start. Okay, okay, were almost done here. I just want to recommend that you refer to the illustrations of the top and rear panels and display in A Guitarists Guided Panel Tour (p.12) so you can see the pictures while we talk and you tweak. Now lets plug in and play!!!
1. If youre connecting ToneLab LE to a mixer or recorder, connect OUTPUT jacks L/MONO and R (7.6) to the input jacks of your mixer or recorder. If youre listening through headphones, connect your headphones to the HEADPHONES jack (7.8). If youre connecting ToneLab LE to a guitar amp(s) connect OUTPUT jacks L/MONO and R to the input jacks of your guitar amp(s).
NOTE: If youre connecting ToneLab LE to something that only has a mono input, just use the L/MONO jack.

Turn up the volume controls on your amp or mixer, and use ToneLab LEs rear panel LEVEL knob to adjust the volume.
NOTE: You wont hear sound for several seconds while the valve (a.k.a. vacuum tube if you live on the west side of the Atlantic) warms up. This isnt a malfunction its a real analogue valve!
LISTEN TO THE PROGRAMS
8. Use the BANK UP, DOWN switches (5.1) to select a bank 130. Notice that the number in the bank display (3.4) blinks and changes.
HINT: ToneLab LE has 120 programs, organized into 30 banks with four programs in each bank (30 x 4 = 120). When shipped from the factory, banks 110 contain 40 programs. (The programs in banks 110, 1120 and 2130 are identical to each other) Program Select mode lets you select these programs. Theres also an effect ON/OFF mode that lets you turn individual effects on/off.
Use the program select 14 switches (5.2) to select a program. The program LED you selected will light, and the number in the bank display will also change and stay lit. Go ahead and play your guitar. For example if you want to select program 3-1 (bank 3, program 1), press the BANK UP or DOWN switch to make the bank display read 3, and then press the program select 1 switch to make the LED light. If youre selecting a program in the same bank, simply press a program select 14 switch. If you want to select a program from a different bank, youll need to perform steps 8 and 9 in that order.
NOTE: If you cant select a program, youre probably not in Program Select mode. Get back into Program Select mode as described in Program Select mode (p.22). HINT: The preset programs cover an amazing range of sounds; fat hi-gain lead sounds, nostalgic clean sounds that work best with your rhythm (neck) pickup, aggressive modern crunch sounds for heavy rifng with your lead (bridge) pickup, and much more.

Playing ToneLab LE
PROGRAM SELECT MODE
ToneLab LE has 120 programs (30 banks x 4 programs), and every one of these programs can be totally rewritten or custom tweaked to your hearts content. With the factory settings, banks 110 contain a total of 40 preset programs. (Banks 1120 and 2130 contain the same preset programs as banks 110.) In order to select programs, you need to be in Program Select mode.
SELECTING A PROGRAM
As an example, heres how to select program 2-3 (bank 2, program 3). 1. Make sure that ToneLab LE is in Program Select mode. If the BANK UP switch LED is lit green, youre in Effect On/Off mode. Press the BANK UP switch to change to Program Select mode. In Program Select mode, the BANK UP and DOWN switch LEDs will be dark. Use the BANK UP/DOWN switches (5.1) to select bank 2. The bank number in the bank display blinks. Press the program select 3 switch (5.2). Program 2-3 will be recalled instantly. The program select 3 switch LED will light, and the bank number will light steadily.
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 switches 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 switch to switch the signal that is being sent through the external effect processor connected to the INSERT jacks.
HINT: You can turn the current amp model on or off using the CONTROL switch. (p.49) HINT: When you want to switch programs, press the BANK UP switch again to return to Program Select mode.
As an example, heres how you can switch the pedal and insert effects on/off for the current program. 1. If the BANK UP and DOWN switch LEDs are dark, the unit is in Program Select mode. Press the BANK UP switch to enter Effect On/Off mode. The BANK UP switch LED lights up green. Program LEDs 14 and the BANK DOWN switch LED indicate the on/off status of the pedal effect, as well as modulation, delay, reverb and insert effects. If program LED 1 is lit, the pedal effect is ON. If you press program select switch 1, the pedal effect will turn off and LED 1 will go dark. If the BANK DOWN switch LED is dark, your guitar signal is not being sent through the external effect. When you press the BANK DOWN switch, the external effect send/return will be turned ON, and the BANK DOWN switch LED will light.
NOTE: If you havent connected an external effect processor to the INSERT RETURN jacks, the INPUT signal will bypass the insert circuit whether the INSERT button LED is lit or dark.
ACTIVATING OR DEACTIVATING THE KEY LOCK FUNCTION
Heres how you can use the Key Lock function to disable ToneLab LEs buttons, selectors, and knobs so they cant be accidentally changed during a live performance.
NOTE: While the Key Lock function is activated, you wont be able to operate any controls except for the switches, pedals and the EXIT/TUNE button. NOTE: The Key Lock setting is cancelled when you turn off the power; it will be disabled when you turn on the power once again.
ACTIVATING THE KEY LOCK FUNCTION
1. 2. If the name display shows anything other than a program name, or if the characters of the program name are blinking, press the EXIT/TUNE button. With the program name shown in the name display, press and hold the EXIT/TUNE button for at least one second. The name display will indicate KEY LOCK for one second, and then the value knob LEDs will go dark.
DEACTIVATING THE KEY LOCK FUNCTION
1. 2. If the name display shows anything other than a program name, press the EXIT/TUNE button. Press and hold the EXIT/TUNE button for at least one second. The name display will indicate LOCK OFF for one second, and then the value knob LEDs will light.
Creating and Storing your own Programs
There are two ways you can do this; by tweaking an existing program or by starting from scratch.
CREATING YOUR OWN PROGRAM
TWEAKING AN EXISTING PROGRAM
If you want to tweak an existing program, select one thats close to the sound you want. Set the MODEL select buttons to the amp, cabinet and effects you want to use, and use value knobs to adjust the sound. For example, you might start with a certain preset that has a crunchy, modern rhythm sound that you like, but create a complementary lead sound that is louder, has a bit more gain, and boosted mid-range.
CREATE YOUR OWN PROGRAM
Now heres how to create your own program from scratch.
NOTE: Before you continue, make sure that the AMP/LINE menu is set correctly as described on p.19.
1. 2. 3.
Select any program (p.22).
HINT: It doesnt matter which program you select, because were starting from scratch.
In the PEDAL, MODULATION, DELAY, REVERB section, press any model select button that is lit two times. This will turn off (bypass) all effects other than the amp model. Use the AMP MODEL selector to choose the amp you want.
HINT: For details on amp types, cabinet types, and effect types, refer to Explanations of the Amp, Cabinet and Effect Types (p.27).
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 the PRESENCE, press the AMP button while holding down the CAP button, then turn value knob 3. To return to adjusting GAIN etc., press the AMP model select button.
HINT: So, youre ipping through the programs on your new ToneLab LE, and you come across one you really like. Its easy to nd out exactly what settings are dialed in to get such an awesome tone just use this Original Value display feature!

his section explains ToneLab LEs amp models, pedal effects, cabinet models, modulation, delay, and reverb effects.
A. AMP MODELS
Which amps did we painstakingly model for our seductive selection of 16? Believe me when I say it wasnt easy cos, as Im sure you know, theres a plethora of great sounding amps out there. After countless hours of soul searching, earnest discussions (not to mention the occasional friendly argument!), calls to tone-wise friends (some professional players, some not.but all blessed with great ears) plus, of course, listening and playing, a top 16 list was nally drawn up. As youre about to discover, the ones we went with are not only the cream of the crop but also offer up the widest possible array of the greatest guitar tones known to man from pristine clean to outrageous overdrive and all points in-between. First though, some stuff you should know.
ABOUT THE GAIN AND VOLUME KNOBS
ToneLab LEs amp models provide three programmable knobs that affect the volume (gain); GAIN, VR GAIN, and CH VOLUME. Each control has its own specic job, and the sound of a particular amp model can vary over an amazingly wide range just depending on the settings of these knobs. As some of you will know, most vintage amps only have one VOLUME control to set up the sound, whilst more modern amps usually have two types of level controls GAIN (or sometimes PREAMP VOLUME) that controls the input level of the preamp section, and MASTER VOLUME that controls how much signal is (and how loud it is going to be) passed from the preamp to the power amp. With many vintage amps there is no MASTER VOLUME, the preamp feeds directly into the power amp without any type of control. The ToneLab LEs controls are designed to cover all these points: ToneLab LE GAIN: On vintage type models that do not have a master volume (i.e., AC15, AC15TB, AC30, AC30TB, UK BLUES, UK 68P, BLACK 2x12, TWEED 1x12, TWEED 4x10), the GAIN control works like the VOLUME of the original amp. On models that do have a master volume, the GAIN control works like GAIN or PREAMP VOLUME.
 "DRIVE".. 220.127.116.11 * Adjusts the amount of distortion (boost).  "LEVEL".. 0.0.10.0 * Adjusts the output level.  "TONE".. 18.104.22.168 * Adjusts the tone.
14. METAL DIST (MTL DIST)
This distortion model is perfect for the metal head in you!
 "DRIVE".. 22.214.171.124 * Adjusts the amount of distortion.  "LEVEL".. 0.0.10.0 * Adjusts the output level.  "TREBLE".. 0.0.10.0 * Adjusts the high-range volume level.  "MIDDLE".. 0.0.10.0 * Adjusts the mid-range volume level.  "BASS".. 0.0.10.0 * Adjusts the low-range volume level.
8. TREBLE BOOST (TREB BST)
This pedal effect is modelled after a built-in treble booster that was designed with the VOX VBM-1 specically in mind. It is a great way of adding teeth to an overdriven sound.
Retro, rude n raw.get the picture!? The name says it all.
9. TUBE OD
This model is based on an overdrive pedal thats housed in a garish, seasick green box and is considered an all-time classic due to the wonderfully warm tones it produces.
This models a legendary fuzz unit that adds a pitch one octave above the original. To get the best results, be sure to use your front pickup.
10. SUPER OD
This models a yellow overdrive pedal manufactured in Japan, and is popular as a booster.
This models an overdrive unit named after a halfhuman half-horse creature appearing in Greek fables. When the gain is lowered, you can use this as a booster that does not impair the original tonal character of your guitar. Raising the gain lets you use this as an overdrive that delivers a rich midrange. The 12 oclock position is the standard setting for tone, but feel free to adjust this aggressively.
D. MODULATION EFFECTS
This section enables you to add a modulation effect after the cabinet. You can choose one of eleven types. (*): This indicates a parameter that you can control from an expression pedal.
10. HOLD DELAY (HOLD DLY)..
If you select HOLD DLY, HOLD DLY will be automatically assigned to the CONTROL switch, enabling you to hold the delay sound.

If you have cancelled Tuning mode by pressing a program select switch that is different from the one you pressed to start the tuner, the program will be also changed.
CALIBRATING THE TUNER
When you switch ToneLab LE on, the built-in tuner is automatically calibrated to A=440 Hz (a.k.a. concert pitch). If desired, you can recalibrate the tuner in the range of A = 438 Hz445 Hz. While the tuner is active, the value display (3.3) shows the frequency of the reference pitch. You can use the , buttons to adjust (calibrate) this in the range of 438 Hz445 Hz.
NOTE: If youve recalibrated the tuner, remember that the setting will be automatically reset to 440 Hz the next time you turn ToneLab LE on.
If you are playing a live performance and want to tune without being heard by the audience, select Silent Tuning mode as follows before you tune your guitar. Hold down the pedal of the currentlyselected program for about 1.5 seconds to enter Silent Tuning mode. This mode enables you to tune your guitar with the output muted.
Transmit the data dump from the external device. While ToneLab LE is receiving all data, its display will indicate RECEIVE. When reception has been successfully completed, it will indicate COMPLETE. If an error occurs, the display will indicate ERROR; in this case, try transmitting the data again.
Connect the transmitting devices MIDI OUT to ToneLab LEs MIDI IN.
Restoring the Factory Preset Programs
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.
eres how you can restore ToneLab LEs programs and all its other settings to the state in which it was shipped from the factory.
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?
NOTE: Executing this procedure will erase all the programs you created and saved in ToneLab LE, and will load the factory-set programs. MIDI settings will also be initialized. If there are any settings you want to keep, you should rst use the data dump function to back them up, or use the Program sheet (the fold-out inside the back cover of this manual) to write down your settings.
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 program select switch to defeat muting. Could the PROG LVL parameter value be too low?
While holding down the three buttons , (4.2), and EXIT/TUNE button (4.8), press the STANDBY switch to turn on the power. The bank display (3.4) P and the LED 14 buttons (5.2) will blink, and the name display (3.1) will ask RELOAD? Release the three buttons you were holding down. If at this point you decide that you really dont want to execute this operation, you can press the EXIT/TUNE button. Press the WRITE button (4.7). The name display (3.1) will show LOADING, and the factory-set data will begin being reloaded. When reloading has been completed, the name display will indicate COMPLETE, and ToneLab LE will automatically switch to Program Select Mode.
