VOX VXI – NEW VET (Virtual Element Technology) MODELING TECHNOLOGY
This technology is referred to as “modeling” because it is based on the existence of an original amplifier whose tonal characteristics have been copied or “modeled”. In the case of rare vintage amps, it is widely accepted that individual units of the same model will sound and react differently due to the passage of time and the varying environments in which they have been used. For these reasons, the selection of the original amp has a major influence on the accuracy and sound quality of a modeling amp. Since the analysis is based on the output sound, the condition of the amp is also very influential and the unavoidable reliance on the human ear has an even greater effect.
These factors make it difficult to say that the modeling accuracy extends to the tonal changes arising from the interaction between the tone controls, the volume, and the various components.
In order to resolve these issues, VOX Engineers completely rethought previous methods of modeling for the VX I and VX II. This led to the development of VET (Virtual Element Technology), which models the actual circuit of the original amp. An enormous amount of information about the vacuum tubes and each individual component was carefully analyzed in order to accurately reproduce the characteristics of the desired amplifier – just as they were originally intended.
VOX VXI – A DIVERSE ARRAY OF AMPS and EFFECTS PROVIDE COMPREHENSIVE SOUND SHAPING
The eleven built-in amp models include VOX’s legendary AC30 as well as also several high-gain, crunch, and clean sounds. We were astounded and blown away by the quality of sound from the VOX VX amplifier – a VX amplifier is the one unit you need to achieve a variety of coveted amplifier sounds ranging from classic vintage effects to costly boutique amps.
A full complement of effects is also provided, including four types of modulation and four types of delay/reverb. The effects featured in the VX amplifier range have been also been re-engineered to deliver more accurate and articulate tones. The eleven preset programs take full advantage of these amps and effects to simulate the signature sounds of famous guitarists and classic songs.

VOX VXI – FET EQUIPPED ANALOG POWER AMPLIFIER
Responsiveness, dynamic overdrive and incredible sound quality — for the guitarist, these are the unique attractions of a tube amp and the reason that tube amps have continued to be sought by guitarists for decades. These characteristics are significantly influenced by the power amp stage of the amplifier.
A new, FET-based analog power amp was designed specifically for the VXII to accurately reproduce the characteristics of a tube amp. This power amp design employs technology inherited from the Valvetronix series and succeeds in reproducing the distinctive sag of a classic tube amp.
VOX VXI – SEALED BASS-REFLEX CABINET DESIGN DELIVERS UNPRECEDENTED TONE and SOUND LEVELS
In addition to the circuit design, VOX Engineers considered all aspects that impact the sound, paying careful consideration to the cabinet and speaker design. In order to obtain a more authentic sound and produce sound more efficiently, they employed a uniquely designed bass-reflex structure in conjunction with a sealed, one-piece speaker enclosure. While providing an external appearance appropriate for a guitar amplifier, the cabinet’s shape, the curvature of the front and back surfaces as well as the internal reinforcement ribs were all designed to optimise resonance.
While the cabinet is constructed from lightweight and durable ABS, a conventional wooden baffle has been used to retain the projection and tone of a classic guitar amp and the results are outstanding. The combination of these two materials yields a superior acoustical property that sounds superb yet provides easy portability. All of these unique elements work together to bring forth a level of sound quality that was previously unachievable with an amp of this size and power.
