Any Classic You Like:
The V-AMP 3's 32 amp models are organized into four groups: Clean, Blues, Metal and Rock. Just twist the dedicated dial to plug into unbelievably-authentic simulations of iconic electric guitar sounds from the 1950s to today. When you select an amp model, a speaker cabinet model is automatically selected. But if you'd prefer a different model, just go to Edit > Cabinets, then use the Bank Up/Down buttons to navigate through all the available options. Just like on other instrument amps, you've got a 3-band EQ (Bass, Mid, Treble), plus Gain, Volume and Master volume dials - and a state-of-the-art, onboard independent Reverb processor for that perfect finishing touch to your tone. Additionally, when you hold down the Tap button, the Treble dial doubles as a Presence control to top-off your tone.
The V-AMP 3 gives you flanger, chorus, reverb, delay and 12 other beautiful digital effects to apply to your sound. Adjust the level in the mix via the Effects dial. To adjust parameters, you can rhythmically press the Tap button to alter delay times or LFO speeds, or hold it down and twist the Effects control to access feedback or depth settings. You can even access an additional Wah Wah effect by using a MIDI control pedal, such as the BEHRINGER FCB1010, or use the included footswitch to select different presets using the included footswitch during your live performances. The FX processor in the V-AMP 3 is all about giving you the ultimate control of artistic expression.
Stunning in the Studio:
The V-AMP 3 features several configurations that make it an invaluable asset in the studio. Access the configuration menu by pressing the B and D buttons at the same time. Then use Bank Up/Down buttons to select a configuration. When using headphones, the V-AMP 3 switches into Studio Mode 1 (S1). This stereo mode works well for both monitoring and recording with effects, amp and speaker modelling. It doesn't apply the additional 3-band EQ to the signal, but most recording programs come with their own EQ. In Studio Mode 2 (S2), the V-AMP 3 sends a signal with amp and speaker simulation, but only the right output has effects. You can either record both left and right outputs to separate tracks - or record the "dry" left output while monitoring the right output.
Stellar on Stage:
The V-AMP 3 has three live configurations. Live Mode 1 is the best choice for running the outputs directly to the mixer, because it applies amp and speaker simulation, effects and an additional 3-band EQ. Live Mode 2 allows you to run the V-AMP 3 into the FX return inputs of 2 different amps. This configuration lets the amplifier's natural speaker sound to go unaltered, since the amps would be mic'd to get the sound to the house mixer, and having a dedicated monitor would be less important. In Live Mode 3, you can send the left output to an amp's FX return for onstage volume, while the right output is fed to the main mixer.
