I was shocked amazed today when I went to guitar center to pick up a new pedal board multi fix unit. My GNX3 is about to die to it's time. I tried the POD HD flooar units, the new DIGITECH multi floor units, and everything else they had. Sadly, NONE of them had the amount or quantity of gain I was really looking for and I was taken aback when the guy suggested a VOX piece as I"ve never liked anything with the VOX name on it in the past as none of it seemed built for lead/metal/chug etc. I am happy to say I was DEAD WRONG. I ended up with a TONE LAB EX which is the bigger brother to the ST but still a small board. Solid build I must say and has a real tube in it that provides warmth and signal compression much like a but tube amp turned up. I put it side by side with the other processors and I could not believe it. Even with a light touch, with the compression on and using the high gain amp with overdrive pedal, playing without a pick or thumb using only fingertips was smooth as silk.

Just blew me away and I bought the unit then and there. It also has a USB Audio Interface built in and a software editor for building patches. As a bonus there is now a new software emulator (like amplitude and such) on the market from Vox and I"m gonna try it as well as the Demo is free. Here is a link.

and here is a vid about the TONE LAB (Using the ST here which is the smaller version but the engine / tube is the same)

I"m a big fan as of now smile.gif Also the new JAMVOX app that lets you do all your patch creation and sharing via software interface is just plain handy! On my ancient GNX3 it was editing pretty much in the small on board display which is a bit of a pain to be honest.

Cool! There is a guy now playing some second guitars in some songs by Cirse and he uses this one as a MultiFx. It's really good but I haven't compare it with others.... Good thread mate!
