Stringed instruments and accessories
At Musikmesse Frankfurt 2002 Behringer will be showing the V-Amp2. The successor to the V-Amp had its debut at winter NAMM 2002, Anaheim. The updated version now features 32 amp and 15 speaker simulation models to achieve authentic sounds ranging from pristine clean to tube-like crunch and distortion.
Along with improved sound quality and low noise (S/N 90 dB) and extended range of amplifier and cabinet models the V-Amp2 now comes with more effects parameters which can be directly accessed on the unit.
The adjustable presence control simulates the negative feedback of classic tube amps. Five configuration modes easily adapt the sound to various studio and live applications. For use as a front-end tone-shaping tool, the V-Amp2 features a 3-band EQ whose basic design changes amp-model dependent.
Preamp bypass turns the V-Amp2 into a stand-alone stereo effects unit. Like its predecessor, the V-Amp2 features 24-bit stereo multi-effects effects including delay, chorus, flanging, tremolo, compression and rotary speaker simulation, resonance effects like phase-shifting, auto-wah, and a wah-wah pedal simulation. Real-time remote control and automation, data transfer and access to additional parameters are achieved using MIDI. V-Amp2 free editing software is available. There also is a free upgrade available to run V-Amp with V-Amp2 software.
