VOX ToneLAB LE Sound Clips

Here's 3 recordings of my VOX ToneLAB LE using 3 different guitars

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_mu ... dID=838011

Strat - Blues Tone (I cycled thru all of the pickup positions on this one starting with the Neck pickup and finishing with the Bridge pickup)

Ibanez Thin HollowBody - Boogie Tone (just a quick sample of my Boogie tones)

Ibanez Full-size HollowBody - Clean/Jazz Tone

These were recorded by plugging the VOX ToneLab LE straight into my PC.
I'll record a clip by miking my PA cabinets later to show how the VOX ToneLab LE sounds like a REAL Tube amp when using it thru a PA system.

Those all sound really great! I especially like the boogie tone. I'm interested to hear how it sounds when it's ran through some cabs.

Thanks guys !! :D


Lefty, here's a clip of what it sounds like miked.

Used my Strat for this one. I plugged the VOX ToneLab LE straight into Channels 2 & 3 of my Peavey XR600G Powered Mixer and Miked a single Mackie 15' PA Cabinet with a SHURE KSM109 which ran into a Mackie DFX-6 Mixer board that is connected to my PC

Damn, that sounds pretty good. It really does sound like a tube amp. I'm really surprised.

Is there any better sound in the world than the sound of an overdriven tube amp? :lol:

Nope, none better.
The VOX ToneLab LE uses a 12AX7 Tube as both a Pre-amp & Power amp.

I suppose I could've miked it a little better. It still doesn't sound as good on the recording as it does in person.
It's sound is big, thick & full.

I've only had it about 3 weeks so, I'm still learning about it and still tweaking it.

Thanks JayBee,

I should've used 2 mics on the PA Cabinet, one for the Woofer and one for the driver.
Maybe I'll record another clip later this week.

Grady,

that might prove harder to mix to the sound you actually hear "live" than you think! Since we never listen to the woofer & driver separately anyway, a quicker way to get the "live sound" result would be to put 2 mics in X with the membranes at "ear distance" away from each other. Check the room where you think the guitar sound is best, put the mics there, and record panned hard left & right - that way you record "exactly" what you hear.

you can hear some examples on http://www.bluezet.tk - go to the demo page, this is the whole band recorded in one take, using this technique

Grady-dood - you just might be on to something here!
A buddy of mine has the full amp; it produces some great sounds.
I was a bit skeptical of the "lab" iteration, but you seem to have gotten it by the horns fairly well

Post more!

pEAcE,

Thanks guys,

As you can hear, even though the Tonelab LE is loaded with effects, I don't go nuts with them.
I'm just trying to get a simple great tone.

I don't have much need for a ton of effects, I just want my Guitar to sound good.
