New JamVOX combines full-featured amp and effects modeling software with active speaker system and new proprietary guitar reduction/isolation technology

SUMMER NAMM SHOW, NASHVILLE, TN, June 20, 2008 — VOX Amplification introduces its first-ever software product with the announcement of JamVOX. In addition to providing drag-and-drop access to virtually any combination of sought-after amp and effects models, JamVOX allows users to import their MP3/iTunes library or their favorite CD tracks. Using new proprietary GXT Guitar XTraction™ technology by Korg, guitarists can extract or “solo” guitar parts or reduce and essentially “mute” guitar parts from any prerecorded track. Using JamVOX’s recording capabilities, guitarists can record their own guitar performances over their favorite tracks. JamVOX’s GXT technology can also extract or reduce vocal tracks, making the software/hardware product an incredibly powerful practice, jamming and recording tool. Guitars and microphones can be directly plugged into the USB-powered hardware component for a complete practice solution. WAV/AIFF recording capabilities enable the player to overdub vocals as well as guitar.

The Mac®- and PC-compatible JamVOX delivers precise models of 19 of the most sought-after guitar amplifiers, 12 popular cabinets, 54 vintage and modern effects and a choice of guitar pickup simulations. Each of the unit’s over 100 preset programs features one amp/cabinet combination and a chain of up to five effects, plus noise reduction. User programs may be saved, and shared online.

High-quality time stretching and pitch shifting enable guitarists or vocalists to slow down or speed up tempos and adjust pitch. Loop record and playback captures a phrase and repeats it. A chromatic tuner by Korg has also been included, as well as an array of drum tracks.

The USB-powered amp/speaker hardware interface is equipped with two 3-inch full-range speakers and two bass reflex ports. The front panel includes a ¼" Guitar Input, XLR Microphone Input and Input Level Control, a Line Output Level Control, a ¼" Headphone Output and a Monitor/Headphone Level Control. The back panel provides L/R Line Inputs (2 x ¼"), L/R Line Outputs (2 x ¼"), a Footswitch port (¼"), an Expression Pedal port (¼") and a USB port for connection of the JamVOX guitar/vocal interface to a computer.

The compact 9.45" W x 6.3" D x 4.82" H JamVOX head, featuring a matte-black finish and metal grill with the “VOX” logo emblazoned on it, pays homage to the brand’s timeless style and forward-looking engineering. Plus, it can perform double duty as an audio interface for popular software programs and for listening to music downloads on a computer.

The JamVOX will be available in October 2008 with pricing to be determined.
